Anya Taylor-Joy on the cover of Elle, May 2021.

Anya Taylor-Joy covers the May 2021 issue of Elle magazine, as photographed by Zoey Grossman, and styled by Alex White in a plaid Dior jacket.

On her childhood growing up in London: "I joke about this, but I’m kind of serious when I say that the characters in the Harry Potter books were my friends. I spent the first two years in England playing hand-clap games with plants—if you slap them hard enough, they clap back—and learning how to read. That was my existence. I didn’t hang out with other kids. I was clearly a very normal child."

On her friendship with Mia Goth: "She was the first actress close to my age that I met, and we had a very cool conversation where I was like, ‘I love you,’ and she said, ‘I love you.’ And I said, ‘I’m always going to have your back.’ And she was like, ‘I’m always going to have your back.’ It was like, ‘Okay, cool. Let’s progress in this very wild industry, knowing that we’re going to take care of each other.'"
