Anya Taylor-Joy’s Experience


Reflecting on the filming, Taylor-Joy described her experience as being “on a different planet.” She expressed pride in the project, highlighting the intense effort involved. Her role as Furiosa allowed her to embrace a less polished, more rugged character, which she found enjoyable.

“I’ve been on a different planet for the last seven months. I think I need to sit down and attempt to try and digest what’s happened over the last seven months. But I’m incredibly, incredibly proud of it, and so proud of all of the people I got to work with, and just the amount of love and effort and work that went into it. I’m excited to see it.”

She joked that starring in Furiosa marked the “dirtiest and the bloodiest I have ever been, for a movie, which is saying something, genuinely saying something. Any time I get to be dirty or bloody and not perfectly prim and pretty, I’m just having a ball, that’s where I feel most comfortable. So yeah, Furiosa was definitely right up my street.”

The fact that I’ll have the honor of not only being directed by its original visionary in George Miller but also take part in Furiosa’s origin story is incredibly exciting.
