Life Story

Anya Taylor-Joy was born in Miami, Florida, the youngest of six children. Her mother is African-Spanish-English and her father is Scottish-Argentinian. She lived her whole life between Argentina and England. Her dad was an international banker but gave it all up to race motorboats. She was raised in Argentina until the age of six, then moved to London, where the family lived in Victoria.

Her dream of becoming an actress came when she was very young and it finally became possible when she was offered a modeling job. It wasn't long until Taylor-Joy received her first part in the Show Business. When she was 14, she used her savings to move to New York, and at 16, she left school to pursue acting.

Personal Quotes 

You do not mess with my characters.
It sounds like such a cliché, but I'm so incredibly lucky to be able to do what I love.
It's strange, but for better or for worse-and I'm hoping it's for better-I tend to forget my accomplishments as soon as they happen.
[on why her parents decided to move from Argentina] My Dad's Scottish-Argentine and my Mum's African-Spanish - and the political situation in Argentina was getting so dire that they wanted their children to grow up in an environment without fear. We all really resented them for it and now we look back, we're like thank you so much because they gave us such an opportunity in life.
