With Henry Cavill’s Argylle reaching a fever pitch after Matthew Vaughn’s recent interview, there has been a tantalizing rumor that has stolen the spotlight. Although it was surprising, it was one that nobody saw coming. Fans of the pop sensation, Taylor Swift ended up becoming convinced that the singer was the creative mind behind the spy thriller. While the speculation may have risen because of a few coincidences, there was nothing solid to go by.

That, however, has not stopped the speculations from swirling. In fact, it probably only made matters worse. So with months left before the thriller comes here, here is what fans know about the author of Argylle.

There is no question that Taylor Swift is a lyrical genius, but Argylle already has an author attached to its name. Unfortunately for the Swifties, it is not the ‘Cruel Summer’ singer. The author of the spy thriller is a woman called Elly Conway. Even though not much is known about her apart from her ideas for a Halloween costume this year, her author bio from Penguin Random House gives fans a little peek into who she is.

In fact, she even has verified accounts on Instagram and X (formerly known as Twitter) where she sometimes interacts with her followers. While the author seems to enjoy her privacy, that has paved the way for Swifties to think that their pop star could be the one behind the fascinating storyline of Henry Cavill’s awaited film. However, that is only the tip of the iceberg, as Swift seems to have added to the fan theory unknowingly.

From her look-alike in the film, who is portrayed by Dallas Howard, to her love for the argyle pattern, they have tried to use everything. In fact, even the film’s X account using Taylor Swift’s songs to promote the film was taken as a sign. The speculation also has to do with the fact that the singer has used pseudonyms before. However, this time that does not seem to be the case as Elly Conway has begun working on the next part of the series, and the pop star is going to be too busy focusing on her ‘Eras’ world tour instead.
