INTRO: Anya Taylor-Joy is one beautiful, talented actress you have seen in every movie genre. Whether it’s M Night Shyamalan thrillers, superhero flicks, supernatural horrors, period dramas, or children’s films, the list for Anya Taylor goes on. And all of that doesn’t even include the fact that she was the star actor in one of Netflix’s most prominent recent series named The Queen’s Gambit. However, Taylor didn’t expect herself to come amongst the top young actors, and instead of that, she thought her acting career would be cut short.

Anya Taylor Talked About Her Role 

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the interviewer asked the actor what it was like seeing herself on the big screen, and that was too playing her first significant role in Robert Egger’s “The Witch.”

She said, “Rob showed us the film for about two hours before the public screening, and I was just devastated after seeing it,” she admitted. She also said, “I thought I’d never work again, and thinking the same, I still get shivers. I think I didn’t do it correctly, and that was the worst feeling because I let down the people. Who expected the world from me. Now I am quite verbose, and I like to communicate. Earlier I did not talk, and I just cried”.

Taylor Was Anxious About Her New Role 

Anya Taylor also discussed her feelings about how she was anxious about her role in the latest adaption of Emma. “I got Jane Austen’s Emma as my next project, and that really panicked me at first.  But because it was a role that was supposed to be beautiful from the offset. I had not done anything like that earlier,” she said. She also said that she had played the role of creatures, outsiders, and whatnot. The same thing triggered her childhood trauma. That was the time she decided that she cannot do it. “there’s no way I can do it. If I do it, I will let people down,” she says.

Looking Forward To Major Roles

However, Taylor-Joy didn’t let down anybody. She still keeps catching major roles. For now, she is all set to star herself in the untitled David O. Russel film alongside numerous other projects like A-listers, Margot Robbie, and Robert De Niro. In addition to this, she is also one of the top Emmy contenders for her role in the Queen’s Gambit.

So, after reading this now, we know that stars are anxious and insecure, just like us, but the only difference is that they are uncertain with a lot of money, of course.
