She is one of Hollywood’s rising stars, and a look at her heritage and personality makes it easy to understand why. If you would like to learn more about the Split star, including her professional career, her fortune, and her childhood, please come along.
Who Is Anya Taylor-Joy?
Scream Queen is a name given to or associated with an actress who has starred in many horror movies or appeared in a few notable entries of the genre. This name was given to Anya Taylor-Joy because of her work in two notable horror movies, Split and The Witch.
Anya, born on April 16, 1996, is a former ballet dancer. The Argentine-British actress was born in Miami, Florida. She grew up with the dream of becoming an actress and followed this dream to New York.
Due to her father’s international career, her educational background is spread over two countries. Anya attended a preparatory school called Hill House in Kensington, and when her family moved to Argentina, she attended Northlands School in Argentina. Although she was born in Miami, Florida, Anya Taylor-Joy did not learn to speak English until she was six years old and for the first five years of her life, she spoke only Spanish. Her childhood also included a period of life as a ballet dancer, before she quit at the age of 16 and moved to New York to pursue an acting career.
Anya Taylor-Joy began her acting career as the nameless feeder girl in the 2014 film Vampire Academy, but it wasn’t long before she was given her groundbreaking role in The Witch, the critically acclaimed Robert Egger film. It was a role that she presented to the mainstream audience, and she received a number of awards for her performance in the film, including the Saturn Award for Best Performance by a Younger Actor and the Gotham Award for Breakthrough.
She followed up her performance in the successful movie starring Morgan and Barry, a biopic about the younger life of Barack Obama in 2016.
When new talent comes into the acting industry, it can be a challenge for her to find new roles all the time, leaving gaps in her filmography, but so far this has not been the case with Anya. Since the beginning of her acting career in 2014, she has appeared every year in a film or television show, including major projects such as Thoroughbreds and Split in 2017, and is scheduled to appear in the sequel to Split in 2019. And she will also appear in the Fox Marvel film The New Mutants – a horror story in the superhero genre. It is expected that this will cement her reputation as the scream queen.
In Anya’s short career, she has been nominated for 18 awards and has won six of them. The actress is an active social media user with a presence on Twitter and Instagram.
