Anya Taylor-Joy becomes an animated princess in the upcoming The Super Mario Bros. Movie. The Queen’s Gambit star will lend her voice to the beloved Princess Peach, a role that turned her into a gamer.
“So now I am a gamer, and it’s really fun,” she told Modern Luxury San Diego. “Ideally, I like playing at arcades because, again, it’s like cinema; I love the ceremony. I’ll go with a whole bunch of friends. And we’ll just spend hours at the arcade.”
Taylor-Joy is part of the star-studded cast that includes Chris Pratt as Mario, Charlie Day as Luigi, Jack Black as Bowser, Keegan-Michael Key as Toad, Seth Rogen as Donkey Kong, Fred Armisen as Cranky Kong, Kevin Michael Richardson as Kamek and Sebastian Maniscalco as Spike.
