Mad Max: Fury Road is getting a spinoff film based on the popular character, Furiosa. A few days back, it was revealed that Anya Taylor-Joy has bagged the titular role, which was played by Charlize Theron in Fury Road. Now the young actor talked about being cast as the imperator.
In a recent conversation with Josh Hororwitz on Happy Sad Confused podcast, Anya Taylor-Joy expressed her excitement on landing the role of Furiosa. She said that the first thing that went through her head when she found out that she was going to do it, was the fact that she was ‘so excited to work so hard’ on the project.
Furiosa was essayed by Charlize Theron in Mad Max: Fury Road. She was a war captain under Immortan Joe, played by Hugh Keays-Byrne, but turns against him in order to free “The Five Wives,” from Joe. She plays a major role in saving Max Rockatansky, portrayed by Tom Hardy.
Anya Taylor-Joy mentioned that she fell in love with Furiosa, the way that Charlize Theron presented her in the previous outing. She stated that the Oscar-winning actor did such an “incredible job” and it was so beautiful that she cannot even think about trying to step into her shoes. Taylor-Joy asserted that her depiction has to be something different because what previously happened just cannot be done. She revealed that she has already started dreaming about Furiosa and she is coming in pretty strong.
