It is not unusual to see actors develop new habits as a result of the roles they play and Anya Taylor-Joy is no exception to the same. Her upcoming movie adaptation, The Super Mario Bros Movie will see the actress take on the character of Princess Peach. In due process of this role, she went researching and in order to perfect her voice, she the actress turned to the actual games.
She even claims to be a gamer now. All the research made her into a dedicated gamer who wouldn’t be surprised to find herself sitting in an arcade and playing her heart out. Having not been a gamer before, Taylor-Joy rather enjoys the ceremonial feeling of winning in arcades.
Anya Taylor-Joy Becomes A Hardcore Gamer
The Super Mario Bros Movie has turned Anya Taylor-Joy into a proper gamer as she constantly drags her friends to arcades and competes with and against them happily. Gaming has become one of her new hobbies and she heavily enjoys the experience that preparing for the role led her to. In fact, gaming is not the first skill she acquired because of a role. Anya Taylor-Joy learned how to drive only after she got a role in Furiosa.
“So now I am a gamer, and it’s really fun. Ideally, I like playing at arcades, because, again, it’s like cinema; I love the ceremony. I’ll go with a whole bunch of friends. And we’ll just spend hours at the arcade.”
Taylor-Joy even pointed out as to how this new habit has become a fun way for her to celebrate with her friends for hours and hours just gaming. While Princess Peach is an iconic role that adds to the actress’ roster, her study of perfecting the character’s voice only gave her more freedom to enjoy herself with her friends. While the character is somewhat different from her original interpretation in the games, her new version has been well received so far.
Anya Taylor-Joy’s Princess Peach Takes A Turn In The Latest Version
While Princess Peach is often seen in the Nintendo games as an integral part yet more towards being a damsel in distress, the latest trailer for the movie showed Taylor-Joy’s character outside of needing to be rescued by Chris Pratt’s Mario from Jack Black’s Browser. Usually, in the games it so happens to be that Princess Peach would get trapped, leading Mario and Luigi to help her escape.
The movie, however, takes a completely different turn as Peach is instead shown to be in a rather more demanding role as she’d help Mario and Toad in preventing Browser from taking over the world. The stakes suddenly become higher with this and fans throughout adore the idea of seeing her character save the world rather than be saved.
