'Furiosa': Anya Taylor-Joy opens up about demanding action sequences

Actress Anya Taylor-Joy revealed she is performing all the driving related stunts on Furiosa herself even though she does not have a license. 

She is playing the titular role in the film which explores the backstory of the character originally played by Charlize Theron. 

It also includes a number of vehicle actions and Anya was at the wheel most of the time. 

In an interview with IndieWire Anya said, "I don’t actually have a license, so I can’t drive. I can’t on a highway, I can’t parallel park, but if you need me to do a juicy 180 in a truck, I can do that and not hit the camera people, which is great." 

"Eventually, I will be in a place long enough to get a driver’s license and then I’ll be really happy, because then I can play. But in terms of first cars, I think I’m quite spoiled in the fact that they were built by the Mad Max art department," added Anya. 

Anya also hopes she could avail a drivers license soon so that she can roam around the roads as well.
