Some of the actors she got the opportunity to act alongside are Chris Hemsworth, Cillian Murphy, Samuel L. Jackson, James McAvoy, Bruce Willis, and Alexander Skarsgård.
We can all agree this is an amazing start of her career!
Despite becoming widely popular in the late 2019 – early 2020, Anya’s acting career started way back in 2013.
Her debut TV role was in the YA movie titled “Vampire Academy”, and soon she also joined the cast of “Endeavour” in 2014.
In 2015, Anya landed her first main role in the TV series titled “Atlantis”.
From 2015 to 2020, Anya was contacted by many, many fashion companies and magazines for features and catalogs due to her unique beauty.
During the same period, she got some amazing acting roles in movies such as “Split” and “Glass”, which collectively grossed over $500 million!
In 2019, Taylor-Joy got to act in “Radioactive”, the movie which tells the story of Marie Curie and her work in the physics section, which helped the world become what it is now.
Anya got the main role of Beth in “The Queen’s Gambit” the same year, so this year is often considered her “breakthrough” in the acting industry.
She is set to appear in the 2024 movie titled “Furiosa”, where Chris Hemsworth will join her.

Anya’s character Gina Gray was introduced in 2019, and she’s portrayed Gina for 11 episodes in total.
Anya received a lot of praise for her amazing portrayal in “Peaky Blinders”.
Anya’s social media platforms are… wow.
As a female writer myself, there’s nothing I love more than seeing young Hollywood actors and actresses gain confidence over the years.
Especially if they (and keep in mind, most of them did) experience any type of bullying when they were younger as Anya did.
Now that she’s in her twenties, she’s glowing with confidence!
She’s also body positive and often shares stunning photos in bikini suits on her Instagram.
She also often talks publicly about overcoming all the nasty rumors going around, which is an amazing thing to witness.
Many producers shut down Anya at the auditions calling her either ugly or saying her eyes will creep people out.
Little did they know that Anya is not a pushover and she would never yield.
