The award-winning actress Anya Taylor-Joy has opened out about her first feature film, “The Witch,” and how disheartening it was for her to see the finished project.
25-year-old actress Maisie Richardson-Sellers, who starred in The Queen’s Gambit, described her feelings of devastation when she watched the film for the first time, just hours before it was released to the public.
When I lost my job, I was absolutely convinced that I would never have another job again. I still get chills thinking about that day. I felt very mortified, as I had let my loved ones down. “It wasn’t done correctly.”
And I enjoy talking, communicating. I simply sobbed. She said, “I could not look at my own face so huge.
I really wanted to be the younger version of Maleficent in the 2014 picture, but it was very impossible.” I’m a big fan of Angelina Jolie, so it was Disney. People say I don’t look anything like her, therefore I never stood a chance of getting it, but I was naÃ¯ve and believed, “Miracles can happen.”
After failing to land a part in the Angelina Jolie-starrer, Taylor-Joy was later called to audition for The Witch. Thomasin was seen as plain, therefore she claimed she never expected it. “And that’s when I started thinking, ‘There are still many things I can do with my face, but I can’t really change it that much,'” she said.
