Taylor-Joy

If pandemic binge-watching needed a patron saint, the British-American Taylor-Joy could be just that person. In 2020, her feature “Emma” from Focus Features dropped just as the quarantine hammer came down, and her Netflix series “The Queen’s Gambit” became a must-watch for stuck-at-homes, suddenly making everyone care about chess. With usually intriguing and fashionable appearances, Taylor-Joy is the most interesting thing on the screen at any given time, and at just 25 earned an Emmy nomination along with Golden Globe and SAG wins for “The Queen’s Gambit.” As such, she’s a Hollywood hot ticket, leading Edgar Wright’s spooky thriller “Last Night in Soho” in October and appearing in upcoming projects such as David O. Russell’s next film for 20th Century in 2022 and leading the “Mad Max: Fury Road” prequel, “Furiosa.”
