1 Dec - Although it was Charlize Theron that made Imperator Furiosa a beloved character through her portrayal in "Mad Max: Fury Road", Anya Taylor-Joy recently revealed that she has not discussed the character with the actress for her upcoming new movie.

The actress, who plays the character as a young woman in the spinoff "Furiosa", stated that there was no talk between the two about the character prior to her filming the movie, likely so that they can play the character in their own unique ways.


"Charlize was sweet enough. I think both of us ended up in a situation where we were both so respectful of each other that we didn't want to reach out prior [to filming]," she said. "The second it was over, once this press tour is over, we're having dinner and we're going to swap war stories for sure."

In a previous interview, Theron admitted that she was a bit saddened by the fact that she couldn't return as Furiosa in the spinoff, but respects director George Miller's decision, seeing that the movie is about the younger version of the character.

"I really love that character, and I'm so grateful that I had a small part in creating her. She will forever be someone I think of and reflect on fondly," she added.
