Taylor Joy made her big screen debut in The witch – 91%film directed by Robert Eggers and premiered the same year as road fury. Set in 17th century New England, this acclaimed period supernatural horror film established Taylor Joy like an actress who isn’t afraid to get her hands dirty. During the interview with indiewire, Anya revealed that while she’s had to get pretty dirty in previous movies, she’s never done it before to the degree that her character in the prequel to Mad Max requires. His words were as follows:
It’s the dirtiest and bloodiest I’ve ever been, which is saying something, really saying something. Anytime I get dirty or bloody and not perfectly demure and pretty, I’m just having fun, that’s where I feel most comfortable. So yeah, ‘Furiosa’ is definitely what I wanted.
The upcoming prequel will tell the story of Furiosa’s youth, when she was kidnapped along with her mother and taken away from her home in “The Green Place,” only to later find herself at the Immortan Joe audience. The film covers a period of 15 years, which probably means that we will see a lot of her life on the wasteland and perhaps the end of her connects directly with Mad Max: Fury Road.

As the world collapses, the young Furiosa is snatched from the Green Place of Many Mothers and falls into the hands of a vast Biker Horde led by Warlord Dementus. Touring the Wasteland they come across the Citadel presided over by The Immortan Joe. As the two tyrants battle for dominance, Furiosa must survive many trials as she musters the means to find her way home.
