Anya Taylor-Joy to play Cinderella in BBC Special

DEADLINE – The breakout star of Netflix series The Queen’s Gambit, Anya Taylor-Joy, will play the title role, Cinderella in a virtual staging of pantomime classic Cinderella for BBC Two, with Richard Curtis executive producing.

The stars will perform from the safety of their homes for the Comic Relief special, which airs on Christmas Eve and will be brought to life with illustrations from iconic children’s illustrator Quentin Blake.

Olivia Colman plays the fairy godmother, while Helena Bonham Carter features as the wicked stepmother Lady Devilia.

Curtis said: “It’ll be very funny and merry — and also a great seasonal opportunity to raise crucial funds for the projects that will help the most vulnerable people, at home and abroad — especially now when Covid has made things harder than ever for many.”

The New Mutants – screencaps

Play chess against Beth Harmon

The website Chess.com added Beth Harmon as characters you can play chess against. Not just one Beth! From Beth at 8 playing in the basement to Beth at 22 playing at world championship, you can try and defeat her! I really like this feature and thought you would find it interesting and fun too (Truth be told: I can hardly beat 8 years old Beth…) Click here to play chess against Beth.

Anya has also shared a statement via Instagram recently about The Queen’s Gambit:

“I cannot begin to express how deeply moved I am by the reaction to The Queen’s Gambit. THANK YOU for the love you have shown Beth. We went on such an unbelievable journey together and I’m glad you folks buckled in for the ride 🤗

Sending love and healing to everyone out there, stay safe🐞🖤”
