Born in Miami and raised in Buenos Aires and London, Taylor-Joy left school at the age of 16 to pursue an acting career. After small television roles, she made her film debut with a leading role in the horror film The Witch (2015), before starring in the horror film Split (2016) and its sequel, Glass (2019), and the black comedy Thoroughbreds (2017). She won the Trophée Chopard at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival.

Taylor-Joy has since appeared in the fifth and sixth series of the television drama Peaky Blinders (2019–2022), and played Emma Woodhouse in the period drama Emma (2020), which gained her a Golden Globe nomination. The same year, she received critical acclaim for her performance starring as Beth Harmon in the Netflix miniseries The Queen's Gambit (2020), winning several awards, including a Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Award.

Early life

Taylor-Joy was born on 16 April 1996 in Miami, Florida, to Dennis Alan Taylor, OBE, [4] a former banker, and Jennifer Marina Joy, a psychologist. She says her birth in Miami was a "fluke", since her parents had been holidaying in the city at the time; because of her birthplace, she holds American citizenship due to the country's jus soli nationality law. [5] Her father is an Argentine of English and Scottish descent, the son of a British father and an Anglo-Argentine mother. [6] [7] [8] Her mother was born in Zambia to an English diplomat father, David Joy, and a Spanish mother from Barcelona. [9] She is the youngest of six siblings, four of whom are from her father's earlier marriage. [10]

Taylor-Joy lived with her family in Buenos Aires and attended Northlands School until the age of six, when the family relocated to the Victoria area of London. [8] [11] She is fluent in both Spanish and English. [12] [8] [10] Taylor-Joy experienced the move as "traumatic" and refused to learn English in hopes of moving back to Argentina. [13] She was educated at Hill House and attended Queen's Gate School, acting in school productions. She left school at the age of 16, citing bullying from her fellow pupils as the reason; she recalled:

Argentina is all green and I had horses and animals everywhere. All of a sudden I was in a big city and didn't speak the language. I didn't really feel like I fit in anywhere. I was too English to be Argentine, too Argentine to be English, too American to be anything. The kids just didn't understand me in any shape or form. I used to get locked in lockers. I spent a lot of time in school crying in bathrooms. [8]

Taylor-Joy initially trained in dance, studying ballet until the age of 15. [14] Aged 17, she was scouted as a model by Storm Management founder Sarah Doukas, while walking her dog outside Harrods department store in Knightsbridge, London. [8] [15] She signed with the agency on the condition that acting was her passion and pursuit. During a modelling shoot promoting the television series Downton Abbey which she had almost rejected because she was studying for her GCSE examinations, Taylor-Joy was noticed by the Downton Abbey actor Allen Leech running errands for the crew and reciting the Seamus Heaney poem "Digging" for a forthcoming screentest. He later introduced her to his agent, whom she signed with as an actor. [16]

Career

Early work and breakthrough (2013–2019)

Taylor-Joy was removed from the final cut of her first acting role in the 2014 horror comedy Vampire Academy , with her role left uncredited. [17] [ better source needed ] She made her television debut as Philippa Collins-Davidson in an episode of the detective drama series Endeavour , and followed this appearing in a multi-episode arc of the 2015 fantasy-adventure drama series Atlantis . [18] Her breakthrough role was in The Witch , a period horror feature film directed by Robert Eggers, which tells the story of a Puritan family that encounters forces of evil in the woods beyond their New England farm. It premiered at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival to critical acclaim, and Taylor-Joy's performance was praised. [19] Anthony Lane of The New Yorker wrote, "Taylor-Joy is remarkable in the role, her wide-eyed innocence entwined with a thread of cunning—proof either of her quick wits, scarcely unusual in a clever and curious girl, or of some fell purpose." [20] The film was a commercial success, [21] and she won the Gotham Independent Film Award for Breakthrough Actor and the Empire Award for Best Female Newcomer. [22] [23]

The following year, Taylor-Joy starred in Luke Scott's science fiction horror film Morgan , playing the title character. It received negative reviews and was a commercial failure, but Booth Michigan's John Serba wrote that "Taylor-Joy disarms us with a performance that keenly teeter-totters between little-girl innocent and dead-eyed viciousness." [24] She next starred in the drama film Barry , which focused on a young Barack Obama during his first year at Columbia University in 1981; it premiered at the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival. [25] The same year, Taylor-Joy's likeness was licensed from Storm Management to represent the character of Valkyrie Cain on the tenth anniversary book cover of Skulduggery Pleasant , and subsequently the covers of the seventh, eighth, ninth, and fourteenth books in the series, before she appeared in the music video for Skrillex's remix of GTA's song Red Lips. [26]

In 2016, she was cast opposite James McAvoy in M. Night Shyamalan's Split , where she played Casey Cooke, a teenage girl abducted by a man with multiple personalities (McAvoy). It was a commercial success, grossing $278.5 million on a budget of $9 million. [27] [28] Her next film that year was Cory Finley's directorial debut Thoroughbreds . It co-starred Olivia Cooke and Anton Yelchin in his final film role. Taylor-Joy played Lily, a high-school student who schemes to kill her stepfather via a contract with a drug dealer. It premiered at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival; David Ehrlich of IndieWire called her performance "captivating". [29] Her third release in 2017 was Sergio G. Sánchez's horror mystery Marrowbone , whose ensemble cast critics praised; Tasha Robinson of The Verge wrote that Taylor-Joy brought "a shy, appealing warmth" to an inconsistent character. [30] Taylor-Joy was nominated for the BAFTA Rising Star Award [31] and was awarded the Trophée Chopard at the Cannes Film Festival that year. [32] In December 2017, she portrayed Petronella Oortman in the BBC One period drama miniseries The Miniaturist , based on Jessie Burton's novel of the same name. [33]

[46] Darren Franich of Entertainment Weekly called Taylor-Joy's performance "darkly fascinating" and noted how she "excels in the quiet moments, [with] her eyelids narrowing as she decimates an opponent, [and] her whole body physicalizing angry desperation when the game turns against her." [47] Similarly, Caroline Framke of Variety found her "so magnetic that when she stares down the camera lens, her flinty glare threatens to cut right through it." [48] Taylor-Joy received numerous accolades for her performance, including winning a Golden Globe, a Screen Actors Guild and a Critics' Choice Television Award. [49]

In 2020, she next appeared in the drama film Here Are the Young Men , directed by Eoin Macken and based on the novel of the same name by Rob Doyle; it wasn't released until April 2021.
