Her upcoming projects include Edgar Wright’s psychological thriller, Last Night in Soho; Focus Features’ The Northman and David O. Russell’s forthcoming feature for New Regency. Anya is about to commence filming Fox Searchlights The Menu opposite Ralph Fiennes and then will film the title role in Furiosa, a prequel to George Miller’s multi-oscar winning blockbuster Mad Max: Fury Road. Her extensive filmography includes Autumn de Wilde’s Emma, for which she was nominated for a Golden Globe; and most recently, hosting the season finale of Saturday Night Live.
