Wylda Rae Johnson is the eldest daughter of actor Aaron Taylor-Johnson and filmmaker Sam Taylor-Johnson. Today, we’ll learn more about Wylda and uncover the details about her life, family, and more.
Wylda Rae Johnson and Her Family
Wylda was born on July 7, 2010, in London, England. Due to her parents’ age difference, their careers in the entertainment industry, and the couple’s approach to parenting, she became a source of public attention.
Wylda grew up in a family of artists. Her father, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, rose to fame for roles in movies like ‘Kick-Ass’ and ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron.’ He was a young 20-year-old when he became a father with Wylda’s arrival.
On the other side, Sam Taylor-Johnson, Wylda’s mother, was 43 at her birth. Sam, a filmmaker and visual artist, has directed critically acclaimed films such as ‘Nowhere Boy’ and ‘Fifty Shades of Grey.’
The couple’s meeting and relationship began on the set of ‘Nowhere Boy.’ However, it led to topics of public discussion, primarily due to their 24-year age gap. Despite the controversies, the couple got married in 2012, under the scrutiny of media and public opinion. According to Sam, Aaron has an old soul:
“My friends call him Benjamin Button because he has — on the outside — such youth, and on the inside, he is so wise and settled. He likes being at home and cooking for the family. He likes walking the dogs. He loves his chickens — he collects the eggs and makes breakfast for everyone.”
Beyond his acting career, Wylda’s father is known for his philanthropic efforts, supporting organizations like Stand Up to Cancer and Teenage Cancer Trust. On the other hand, Sam Taylor-Johnson has overcome some health challenges, including a battle with colon cancer. She has then used her experience to advocate for health awareness.
Wylda, now 13 years old, has a younger sister named Romy Hero Johnson.
Where is Wylda Now?
Unlike many celebrity children, Wylda’s life has been kept relatively private. Her mother didn’t share images of Wylda’s face even when revealing an incident in mid-2020 – Wylda breaking her arm.
Sam Taylor-Johnson often shields Wylda and her sister Romy from the public eye. This is a choice different from the openness she has with her older children from a previous marriage.
As of December 2023, it’s reported that Wylda continues her education in the UK.
