Anya Taylor-Joy Named Newest Jaeger-LeCoultre Ambassador

Miami-born actress Anya Taylor-Joy has been named the newest ambassador of the home of fine watchmaking Jaeger-LeCoultre. Known for combining technical ingenuity with aesthetic beauty and a distinctively understated sophistication, La Grande Maison filmed a short video “A Call of the Heart” starring Anya Taylor-Joy; a symbol of welcoming the new ambassador to the Maison. The video was inspired by an historic phone call that was to have a profound impact on the Manufacture LeCoultre.

CEO of Jaeger-LeCoultre Catherine Rénier declared the following: “The encounter with Anya was meant to be. Her long family history with polo and interest in watchmaking led us to a natural partnership.” “With her ethereal beauty, her sensitivity, her talent and hardworking ethics, she embodies the values and style of our Maison,” she added.

Recognised as one of the most exciting talents of her generation, Anya Taylor-Joy is the living embodiment of modern femininity. Her on-screen presence has a mercurial quality – otherworldly yet intensely present, fearless but vulnerable, innocent yet dangerous.

Born in Miami to British-Argentine parents, and raised in Buenos Aires and London, the 26-year-old actress won rave reviews for her breakout performance in Robert Egger’s The Witch in 2016. A series of critically-acclaimed roles followed and, in 2020, the Netflix hit The Queen’s Gambit shot her star into the stratosphere; her mesmerising portrayal of Beth Harmon won her a Golden Globe, a Screen Actors’ Guild award and a Critics’ Choice award. This was followed by major roles in Edgar Wright’s Last Night in Soho and Robert Eggers’ The Northman, and she will next be seen in David O. Russell’s Amsterdam with Christian Bale and Margot Robbie, as well as Mark Mylod’s comedy-horror The Menu with Ralph Fiennes and Nicholas Hoult. Anya is currently filming Furiosa, the Mad Max prequel.
