Lambert will voice the character of villain Emperor Maximus.

The Witch and Split‘s Anya Taylor-Joy has joined the cast of Peaky Blinders‘ fifth season. BBC One, where the Steven Knight-created epic crime saga is moving after spending its first four go-rounds on BBC Two, tweeted the news today, welcoming Taylor-Joy to Birmingham. There’s no word yet on just what her role will be, but the actress tells Deadline, “I could not possibly be more excited to be joining such a talented group of people. I can’t wait to get in and play this character.”

The BBC released a first-look photo of Taylor-Joy, taken by Season 5 director Anthony Byrne on the set of the drama that’s currently filming in Manchester (check it out below). Further cast is expected to be added to the 2018 laureate of the Best TV Drama BAFTA Award.

Deadline recently reported that Season 5 will see Cillian Murphy’s Tommy Shelby face his darkest force yet. As the world is thrown into turmoil by the financial crash of 1929, opportunity and misfortune are everywhere. When Tommy, who’s now an MP, is approached by a charismatic politician with a bold vision for Britain, he realizes that his response will affect not just his family’s future but that of the entire nation.

Helen McCrory and Paul Anderson are also back for Season 5 as are Sophie Rundle, Finn Cole, Kate Phillips, Natasha O’Keefe, Aidan Gillen, Jack Rowan, Charlie Murphy, Kingsley Ben-Adir, Harry Kirton, Packy Lee, Ned Dennehy, Ian Peck and Benjamin Zephaniah.

Taylor-Joy was recently seen in BBC/Masterpiece mini The Miniaturist and her upcoming feature projects include M Night Shyamalan’s Glass and X-Men film The New Mutants. She’s repped by CAA, Troika, and Felker Toczek.

Peaky Blinders is written by Knight and produced by Caryn Mandabach Productions and Tiger Aspect Drama. Season 5 will air next year.

Quick question that Anya Taylor-Joy and I are dying to know the answer to: Who, in their perverted wisdom, was the first person to wear red lipstick? Which God-fearing person thought, You know what would be cool? If we painted our mouths bright red — really dialed up the pigment 5,000 percent so that you could see our lips from a great distance!

Cursory Internet searches tell me that it could have been the ancient Sumerians, or the Egyptians, or the Romans, but none of this is satisfying enough. Was it for glamour? Intrigue? Sex? A really good going-out look?

“Dude, I think about that stuff all the time!” Taylor-Joy says breathlessly. We are just wrapping up our interview when we stumble upon the topic we both want to talk about forever. “The ‘first people’ question gets me. Who was the first person to decide that pasta would be fun if it was tubular? And coated in butter? That person’s a genius. Who cut up an avocado and was like, I’m going to eat this green stuff on the inside?”

I wonder aloud: Who decided eyelids should be blue? She laughs. “I think we should bring blue eye shadow back.” She is kidding — and the beauty director of this magazine later informs me that it is already back, so her point is actually moot.

But Taylor-Joy suggests it in a kind of conspiratorial way that is partly whimsical and partly illicit, and in that moment I think, Absolutely, let’s do this new thing you just thought of. This is a woman who only started acting in movies four years ago (at age 18), whose second film was a critical hit (The Witch), whose fifth was a financial success and a critical hit (M. Night Shyamalan’s Split), and whose Marvel movie debuts next year (it’s X-Men, The New Mutants, and she gets top billing). That last one just might catapult her into the celebrity stratosphere, which is both exhilarating and anxiety-inducing for her. Now, in the period before her star crystallizes, she can do anything she wants.

Universal impressed the nation’s exhibitors Wednesday with the first footage of M. Night Shyamalan’s thriller “Glass,” starring Samuel L. Jackson, Bruce Willis, James McAvoy and Sarah Paulson.

Shyamalan told the audience at CinemaCon at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas that “Glass” is the “first truly grounded comic book movie.”

Jackson added, “It’s about time I got the title role in my own motherf—ing movie.”

All four stars appeared on the stage, and the footage set up Paulson as a psychologist dealing with the three other characters, who she notes all believe that they are superheroes. What followed was a series of scenes with the characters interacting with each other — with Willis’ character attempting to stop an apocalyptic outcome.

“Glass” brings together the narratives of Shyamalan’s “Unbreakable,” which was released in 2000 through Disney, and last year’s “Split,” from Universal. Shyamalan is self-financing. Universal, Blumhouse and Shyamalan first unveiled plans for “Glass” last year.

From “Unbreakable,” Willis returns as David Dunn and Jackson is back as Elijah Price, best known by his pseudonym Mr. Glass. Joining from “Split” are McAvoy, reprising his role as Kevin Wendell Crumb and the multiple identities who reside within, and Anya Taylor-Joy, the only captive to survive an encounter with McAvoy’s the Beast.

Universal will handle domestic distribution, while Buena Vista International is on board for international territories. “Glass” opens domestically on Jan. 18.
