Early Life and Family
Anya-Josephine Marie Taylor-Joy was born on 16 April 1996 in Miami, Florida, to Dennis Alan Taylor, a former banker who was awarded an MBE and the OBE, and Jennifer Marina Joy, a psychologist.
She has said her birth in Miami was a “fluke” since her parents had simply 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.
Her father is an Argentine of English and Scottish descent, son of a British father, and an Argentine-British mother. Her mother was born in Zambia, to an English diplomat father, David Joy, and a Spanish mother from Barcelona. She is the youngest of six siblings, four from her father’s previous marriage.
Taylor-Joy lived with her family in Buenos Aires and attended Northlands School until age six when the family relocated to the Victoria area of London. She is fluent in both Spanish and English and holds dual British and American citizenship.
Taylor-Joy experienced the move as “traumatic” and refused to learn English in hopes of moving back to Argentina. She was educated at Hill House and attended Queen’s Gate School, acting in school productions. She left school at age sixteen, citing bullying from her fellow pupils as the reason.
Taylor-Joy initially trained in dance, studying ballet until age fifteen. At seventeen, she was scouted as a model, by Storm Management founder Sarah Doukas, while walking outside Harrods department store in Knightsbridge, London.
