DuJour photoshoot and interview

DUJOUR – The American-born, English Argentine actress, Anya Taylor-Joy, who starred in M. Night Shyamalan’s Split and this year’s adaptation of Emma (she also had a recurring role on Peaky Blinders), is back in the spotlight with a new project: Netflix’s new original series The Queen’s Gambit.

Based on the 1983 book of the same name by Walter Tevis, the miniseries follows Beth Harmon, a young orphan in 1950s Kentucky, who is taught chess by the custodian at the orphanage. After the young girl’s gift is discovered and nurtured, a series of setbacks occurs until she’s adopted by a family which enables her to develop this gift and reach her full potential in the game. The series takes us from Kentucky to Paris, New York and Moscow following the talented young woman in her journey to become the best chess player in the world.

The 24-year-old actress talked to DuJour about why this role excited her and how 2020 has changed her.

Interview Magazine

Anya Taylor-Joy is featured in the September digital version of Interview Magazine, photographed by Till Janz. George MacKay, her co-star in The Marrowbones interviewed her for the occasion.

INTERVIEW – Early in her career, Anya Taylor-Joy was quick to get labeled a “scream queen,” the cliché used to describe a female actor whose profession is peril. And while it’s true that the 24-year-old performer’s 2015 debut, The Witch, was a bloodcurdling nightmare—ditto for her follow-ups Morgan and Split—Taylor-Joy, with her ferocious intensity and spell-binding vulnerability, has elevated herself above the trappings of any single genre. This year alone, Taylor-Joy has appeared as the title character in Autumn de Wilde’s modernized adaptation of Jane Austen’s Emma, will play a Russian mystic in the comic-book-inspired The New Mutants, and was set to make her return to horror in Edgar Wright’s pandemic-delayed Last Night in Soho. Next month, she’ll carry The Queen’s Gambit, a seven-episode miniseries based on Walter Tevis’s 1983 novel about Beth Harmon, an orphan who rises to become a chess grandmaster while struggling with addiction. Just before she was set to film her next role in the Viking saga The Northman (a reunion with The Witch director Robert Eggers), Taylor-Joy connected with her friend, the actor George MacKay, to discuss, among other things, growing up, playing chess, and battling demons.

Anya Taylor-Joy for Wonderland

March 20, 2020
by Maybelle Morgan

Oscillating effortlessly between twisted gothic thrillers and refined period dramas, Anya Taylor-Joy has mapped out an unconventional career rooted in escapism. Now stepping into the shoes of Jane Austen’s timeless antiheroine Emma in a new screen adaptation, the actor speaks to us about why she’ s never compromised for less.

Within the first five minutes of meeting, Anya Taylor-Joy is excitedly telling me about the best first date she’s ever been on. “Our lunch turned into six, seven hours of us wandering around antique shops and just telling each other our entire life story.” She recalls the story animatedly, her stupendously large eyes trained on mine. “We fell in love! It was basically the best first date I’ve ever had.” I’m currently sat with the actress in the practically sub-zero temperatures of a studio’s storage room in the depths of south London.

Anya Taylor-Joy: “I dream of working with Wes Anderson”
With a singular face, unquestionable talent and extraordinary self-confidence, the actress, the face of Viktor & Rolf’s Flowerbomb, will be a flagship personality of 2020 thanks to the remake of Emma, the spin-off X Men, New Mutants and the film Radioactive.

After this shooting with Anya Taylor-Joy, ambassador of Viktor & Rolf’s Flowerbomb perfume, the actress presents herself in a dancer’s outfit with an oversized sweater and striped wool stockings worn on a fishnet tights. Let’s start with the new version of Emma, Wilde’s Autumn movie from Jane Austen’s book that comes out in June, in which Anya has the title role. “In November 2018, I received an email asking me not to confirm new projects, followed immediately by another email warning me that I was wanted for Emma and that the next day the director would fly to see me. When we met with Autumn de Wilde, we just got along and what was supposed to be a lunch was followed by a long afternoon of walking, going to the antique shops, in a relationship of immediate complicity almost a mother-daughter relationship.
