On Tuesday, Anya attended the special screening of The Northman at Odeon Luxe Leicester Square in London (April 5). The Northman is in theaters from April 22.
It has a star-studded cast and is set to be one of the biggest films of the year. From visionary director Robert Eggers comes The Northman, an action-filled epic that follows a young 10th Century king prince on his quest to avenge his father’s murder. Today two of the show’s stars and Hollywood royalty Anya Taylor-Joy and Alexander Skarsgard join Ranvir live. They’ll be explaining why this is the hardest job they’ve ever had and the extreme lengths Alexander went to get the ultimate viking body. He’ll also reveal why he described his reunion with Nicole Kidman for the film as hilarious, and Anya will explain why she’s proud but shocked she made chess sexy, following the success of Netflix’s hit show The Queen’s Gambit.
On Sunday night, Anya attended the 2022 Vanity Fair Oscar party along with Malcolm McRae! The event was held at Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts in Beverly Hills, California (March 27).

VOGUE – It is late January and the end of a glittering Couture Week in Paris. As fashion editors and models head for the Eurostar under a cold, cement sky, in a studio in an industrial north-east suburb of the city, rails of gowns – Gaultier, Alaïa, Alexandre Vauthier – plucked from the catwalk during the previous days’ shows, are waiting for another outing. From a dressing room, Anya Taylor-Joy emerges in a shimmering Dior dress, made from gossamer-light silver lamé muslin, which sweeps along the floor behind her. As she steps in front of the camera, fixing those saucer-sized eyes down the lens, a crown is gently placed atop her head. Like subjects in a royal court, we all coo approvingly: all hail Queen Anya.
There is, it should be noted, nothing remotely imperious about the 25-year-old’s demeanour. I go to say hello and Taylor-Joy immediately pulls me into a hug, then springs back, mortified: “Can I?” she says, in that high, husky voice of hers, worried she has crossed a Covid-appropriate line. (Later, wrapped in a bathrobe between shots, I glimpse her sneaking outside for a quick cigarette. Legend.)
Still, this regal get-up befits a screen royal in the making. These days, it feels like Taylor-Joy is everywhere: teenage lead in indie darling Robert Eggers’s skin-crawlingly creepy The Witch in 2015; a deliciously cruel Emma (“incredibly clever, but so bored”) in Autumn de Wilde’s 2020 Austen adaptation; tragic Soho chanteuse in Edgar Wright’s chilling Last Night in Soho last year. You must have seen her small-screen outing as red-headed chess genius Beth Harmon, in Netflix’s lockdown superhit The Queen’s Gambit, the part that properly propelled her to global renown, bagging her a Golden Globe, a Sag and a Critics’ Choice award, fantastical red-carpet fashion and fans galore.
