The latest addition to the list of Anya Taylor-Joy movies and TV shows? The Menu.

In the buzzy dark comedy, a foodie couple makes their way to a remote and exclusive restaurant founded by a celebrity chef...who has a few unorthodox ideas in mind for his customers. (Have you wondered, "Is The Menu streaming?" We have you covered.) 

Despite the focus on the cuisine—and you know, getting out of Julian Slowik's restaurant alive—the actor admits cooking is not one of her strong suits. 

"It’s just more that it doesn’t really interest me," she revealed to PageSix. "I’m not going to lie to you. I feel like we have delivery, we have takeout."

Despite a lack of interest in the foodie scene, her role as Margot Mills in the new film kept us hooked from the moment she questioned Hawthorne restaurant's unusual tactics. Given her résumé, captivating audiences seems to be on brand for Taylor Joy.

Anya Taylor-Joy movies and TV shows

The 26-year-old gained attention with her role in the Netflix hit, The Queen's Gambit, one of the most popular scripted shows in the streamer's history and Netflix's most watched show two years ago. This limited series aired in 2020 but takes place during the Cold War era, when an orphan chess prodigy tries to prove just how skilled she really is.

"I was desperate to tell this story," she revealed to Deadline about her character, Beth Harmon. "I fell in love with her immediately, and I really thought that I could do it right."

You can also catch the actor in: 

  • The Northman (2022) 
  • Last Night in Soho (2021) 
  • Emma (2020)
  • Glass (2019) 
  • Thoroughbreds (2017)
  • Split (2016)
  • The Witch (2015) 

She also has a Golden Globe Award and a Screen Actors Guild Award, plus she earned a spot on TIME magazine's 100 Next list in 2021.

Anya Taylor-Joy upcoming movies

Taylor-Joy will also star in Furiosa in 2024, and The Super Mario Bros. Movie in 2023, where she plays Peach. 

"Once I booked the job and my friends were so excited, we bought all of, you know, the Mario Kart world and we really went for it." she told MTV News. "My favorite way to play is at the arcade, though. I've now become, like, a hardcore adult arcade individual."

Anya Taylor-Joy age, nationality

Born on April 16, 1996, in Miami, Florida, Anya Taylor-Joy is 26 years old (and an Aries).

Though she spent some of her childhood in Argentina, she and her family—whom she describes as "nomadic, traveling gypsies" while on The Drew Barrymore Show—made their way over to London. 

After intense bullying in school, she decided to make her way over to New York and try her hand at acting. At age 16, when she happened to have been back in London, she was scouted by the modeling agent who discovered Kate Moss. Her big break into Hollywood came at 17 when she landed a role in The Witch

Anya Taylor-Joy husband

PageSix uncovered all the details: Taylor-Joy and her boyfriend of a year, Malcolm McRae, made their red carpet debut at Vanity Fair Oscars afterparty in early 2022, and by the summer, the two wed, though Joy is very quiet when it comes to her personal life.

We'll be here patiently waiting to see what the star does next—especially when it comes to channeling our favorite 90s princess, Peach!
