Joe Alwyn is set to be Hollywood's next breakout star, and he's already won the heart of Taylor Swift...

In case you haven't heard, Taylor Swift has got a new man - actor Joe Alwyn. So, what's his story? Here's your cribsheet...

He's British

It's no secret that T-Swift has a thing for Brit boys (her exes include Calvin Harris, Tom Hiddlestone and Harry Styles, after all), and her latest love interest hails from Crouch End in North London.

You might recognise him from...

Rex Features

The 26-year-old had his breakout role in Ang Lee directed movie Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk. He scored the lead role while he was still studying at Royal Central School of Speech and Drama and from Lee's praises, it's clear he's one to watch. "One minute into the first audition, for me it was a done deal," the director gushed to Evening Standard about his audition. "He was an absolutely top-notch talent. I could smell it from two miles away." Praise indeed.

He's a homebody

Joe still lives with his parents inbetween filming, and Taylor is also said to be renting a house close by so they can hang out while he's in town.

He also loves spending time on the Cornish Coast, according to an interview with Vanity Fair, so eyes peeled for Insta snaps of Taylor and him enjoying some Cornish ice cream on the beach this summer.
