Anya Taylor-Joy

Anya Taylor-Joy is set to play one of the most badass drivers in movie history in 2024’s Furious–but she doesn’t even have her license.

Recently, Anya Taylor-Joy fessed up that, even though her role of Furiosa requires quite a bit of action behind the wheel, she never actually went through the hassle of obtaining even a learner’s permit. “I don’t actually have a license, so I can’t drive. I can’t on a highway, I can’t parallel park.” Still, that doesn’t mean she’s entirely incapable of handling a vehicle. “If you need me to do a juicy 180 in a truck, I can do that and not hit the camera people, which is great.”

Anya Taylor-Joy would like to get her license at some point, but acknowledges it may be tough on the passenger. “If a driving instructor gets in a car with me, all I know how to do is crazy stunt driving…I fear for the poor man or woman that is taking the test with me, because gentle, I am not.” She continued, “I’m planning on getting my stunt driver’s certificate…so then I’ll be able to do all of my driving in all films, which would be great.”

It’s all a bit ironic, but certainly she doesn’t need her license. It’s not like she needs to be royalty to play Princess Peach or be buddies with a satanic goat to star in The Witch.

Anya Taylor-Joy recently wrapped production on Furiosa (the prequel to Mad Max: Fury Road), which has a scheduled release date of May 24, 2024. By her account, it seemed to be one wild shoot. “Any time I get to be dirty or bloody and not perfectly prim and pretty, I’m just having a ball, that’s where I feel most comfortable. So yeah, Furiosa was definitely right up my street.”

How do you feel about Anya Taylor-Joy taking over the role in the prequel? Can she live up to Charlize Theron’s original go?
