Taylor-Joy stars alongside Chris Hemsworth and Tom Burke in the epic prequel film, and while she has previously professed her love working with the actors as well as the director, her experience while filming the movie was somehow very challenging.

The controversy sparked after the publication of her interview with the New York Times. Anya Taylor-Joy admitted feeling “alone” while shooting Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga.


I’ve never been more alone than making that movie. I don’t want to go too deep into it, but everything that I thought was going to be easy was hard.”

When she was asked to elaborate on her statement, the actress took a long pause before responding with, “Next question, sorry.” Then, she added, “Talk to me in 20 years. Talk to me in 20 years.”

The Queen’s Gambit star knew what she was signing up for when she joined George Miller’s project. “I wanted to be changed. I wanted to be put in a situation in extremes where I would have no choice but to grow. And I got it.” She knew that it was going to be a tough job, but she did not expect it would be that extreme and probably traumatic.

Taylor-Joy said that the director was very strict with his vision for Furiosa. She said that she was only allowed to show “my eyes for a large portion of the movie. It was very much mouth closed, no emotion, speak with your eyes,” something the actress does not really approve of.


Still, Taylor-Joy did not want to come off as insolent on the set, and she maintained her respect for Miller. “At the end of the day, this is his vision. I can present everything that I have, but his word goes.

No one knows what exactly happened on the set, but the actress claimed she never regrets the experience. Although, in her interview, she mentioned that there is no one who made a Mad Max movie who doesn’t understand what she felt. “Everyone that I’ve met that has, there’s a look in our eyes: We know,” she added.
