Anya Taylor-Joy is a star. Though she has only been acting professionally for the last ten years, we love the work she has put out thus far and always look forward to her upcoming projects.

Her parents were actually just vacationing there at the time of her birth, and even though she calls it a "fluke," she holds dual citizenship in America as well as England. Her parents are both English, with her father being part Scottish and Argentinian, while her mother having ancestry in Spain. It may come as a surprise that the award-winning actress' native tongue is not English. As we [inlink id="anya-taylorjoy-credits-jack-black-with-teaching-her-english" text="previously reported"], Taylor-Joy was raised in Argentina until she was six years old, moving to London after. She learned English by watching Harry Potter, School of Rock, and Jumanji. She wants to work with “any Spanish-speaking directors” to make a movie in Spanish for upcoming projects. https://www.instagram.com/p/C4gc9r-vmmh/ [inlink id="anya-taylor-joy-got-secretly-married" text="RELATED: Anya Taylor-Joy Secretly Got Married In 2022"] Taylor-Joy made her acting debut in A24's 2015 film, The Witch. The critically acclaimed Robert Eggers period horror film stars Taylor-Joy as Thomasin, who becomes a witch herself by the end of the film. Shortly after, the actress starred in more films in the horror and thriller genre: Morgan, Split, and Glass. By 2020, she achieved mainstream success with back-to-back hits with the period rom-com Emma and the Netflix series, The Queen's Gambit.
