Anya Taylor-Joy Movies and Series Ranked

Welcome to our ranking of movies and series of Anya Taylor-Joy! We start with her Certified Fresh works, including her career introduction in The Witch, Netflix’s addictive chess miniseries The Queen’s Gambit, Edgar Wright’s swinging Last Night in Soho, and the fifth season of Peaky Blinders. Those are followed by Glass, the sequel to M. Night Shyamalan’s surprising Split, and the long-delayed New Mutants, the last in Fox’s run with Marvel and X-Men. Her latest was reuniting with Witch director Robert Eggers for the Viking revenge epic The Northman.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Its moves aren't always perfect, but between Anya Taylor-Joy's magnetic performance, incredibly realized period details, and emotionally intelligent writing, The Queen's Gambit is an absolute win.
