Anya Taylor Joy is an American-born actress who made her professional acting debut as Philippa Collins-Davidson in the crime drama TV series, Endeavour, in 2014. She duly earned the appellation of a scream queen because of her wonderful depiction of characters in horror films.

Since the inception of her acting career, the immensely talented and beautiful star has played diverse roles in several movies and TV series. She has further been able to win many accolades for her unique acting prowess within the short time she has been in the movie industry.

Having earned global fame and recognition with her talent, Anya is rated as one of the fast-rising stars in the film industry. In addition to her acting, she is also a model who is under contract with Storm Model Management. More so, she is a terrific dancer, who has been professionally trained in ballet. The multi-faceted actress can equally play many musical instruments, including the ukulele and electric guitar efficiently.

Interesting Revelations About Anya Taylor Joy’s Family and Origins

The comely Argentine-British actress was born Anya Josephine Marie Taylor Joy on April 16th, 1996 in the beautiful American city of Miami, Florida. She is the sixth and last child of her parents whose names are not known. Her father is, however, known to be Scottish-Argentinian while her mother is English of South African and Spanish descent.

Anya’s mother worked in photography and interior design while her father is a retired international banker. Following his resignation as a banker, he ventured into motorboat racing where he is reportedly doing well.

Soon after the birth of the actress, her family moved to Argentina. They later relocated to London, England when she was six years old because of the political unrest in Argentina, as her father did not want his children to grow in a tense environment. Anya Taylor Joy was fluent in Spanish when she moved to London but she later became conversant in English at the age of eight.

How She Started Her Acting Career

Since her childhood, Anya Taylor Joy had always harbored the dream of becoming an actress. Things, however, did not go smoothly for her in the beginning as she suffered from depression in her teenage years, a result of her being bullied at school.

Anya later threatened to quit school but fortune soon smiled her way as she launched a modeling career when she was 16. She was able to do so after she was scouted by Sarah Doukas, the founder of Storm Model Management while walking down the street of South West London with her dog Khala.

Doukas gave Anya her business card and asked her to come to her office the next day with her parents and the rest became history.
