Anya Taylor-Joy’s breakthrough came in 2015, when she played the role of Thomasin in the horror film “The VVitch: A New-England Folktale”. After that, she received offers to participate in various projects. But, as it turned out, Anya was extremely unhappy with her own work in the picture of Rob Eggers.
In the podcast The Hollywood Reporter’s Awards Chatter, the actress said she was shocked when the director turned on the movie a couple of hours before the screening.
“I thought I would never work again, I still shiver when I think about it. It was the worst feeling: “I let the people I love more than anything in the world. I did everything wrong,” the actress shared.
According to her, the sight of her own face on the big screen was unbearable for her, she could not say a word and just cried. During the interview, Taylor-Joy admitted that she had rethought her approach to work and realized that she needed longer breaks between projects.
After “The VVitch: A New-England Folktale,” Anya tried herself in many genres from drama to film comics, and recently returned to horror: she played Sandy in “Last Night in Soho.” The film will begin showing in theaters from October 22nd.
