In 2015, Anya Taylor-Joy received an offer to star in a Disney Channel pilot the same day she received an offer to star in The Witch. In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, after receiving the offer from Disney, Taylor-Joy said, “It was so exciting to be offered anything at all that I ran through the house like an idiot.” However, she ultimately chose to star in The Witch instead. She continued, “I just had this really good feeling about The Witch that made me willing to give up the Disney experience for the thing that felt unfamiliar, the thing that felt sacred.”

She went on to say that working on this film taught her many lessons that she still applies to her acting today. She said there was hard work that went into producing the film, not just as an actress but as creatives in general, noting that she will always pay attention to things like blocking as well as her performance as it is her responsibility also lying on the set.

The Witch proved to be an excellent decision for Taylor-Joy as she received rave reviews for her performance in the film. For example, at the time of the film’s release, The New Yorker wrote, “Taylor-Joy is remarkable in the role, her wide-eyed innocence [is] intertwined with a thread of ruse.” In 2017, she even received a Fangoria Chainsaw Award, a prestigious accolade in the genre community, for Best Actress for her performance in the film.
