With her unique face and memorable screen presence, Anya Taylor-Joy became an instant success with her breakthrough role in the Sundance hit "The Witch" in 2016. Born in Miami, Florida to British and Argentine parents, Taylor-Joy was the youngest of six children, who all spent significant amounts of time in their parents' home countries of England and Argentina. After studying ballet for much of her youth, Taylor-Joy eventually branched out into modeling, though her real goal was to become an actor. She landed her first audition for the film "Maleficent" (2014), and found the process incredibly nerve wracking. After playing a small, uncredited role in the supernatural teen film "Vampire Academy" (2014), Taylor-Joy eventually won the lead role of the Puritan girl Thomasin in the independent hit "The Witch" (2015). Having earned a new level of recognition, Taylor-Joy made appearances in the TV movie "Viking Quest" (SyFy, 2016) and on the series "Atlantis" (BBC, 2013-2015) before taking on the title role in the thriller "Morgan" (2016). She would next appear in another thriller, starring alongside James McAvoy as a young woman kidnapped by a psychotic man in "Split" (2016). Later that year, she would take on a role in a biopic about President Barack Obama's youth entitled "Barry" (2016).
