1. English is not her native language.

Anya didn't learn English until the age of eight. How surprising is that?

It's even more surprising listening to her speak in Spanish with Argentinian accent.

The actress of Split lived in the South American country until she was six but continued to speak Spanish because her mother is Argentinian and her father Spanish.

2. This girl has no home.

Yes, the actress has been moving around since she was born.

First from Miami to Buenos Aires, then to England and now Anya divides her time in planes or hotels while shooting and promoting movies around the world.

In 2016 this young lady worked in 4 different films!

3. She quit high school at the age of 16 to become an actress.

No Anya Taylor Joy didn't switch to home school, she just dropped out.

Probably the actress will resume her studies at some point but for now she seems to be doing just fine.
