Does Anya Taylor-Joy Have Any Pets?

Khala

Dog

Admitted animal lover and acclaimed actress Anya Taylor-Joy has a dog named Khala. She actually got her start in modelling, all thanks to walking her dog. When she was 16 years old, she was walking Khala while practicing wearing her mom’s high heel shoes. She noticed a car following her suspiciously, so she decided to grab her dog and make a run for it. The car caught up with her and said she should stop or she’ll regret it…. She did stop, but warned people (while sharing the story to James Corden in the video below) that they shouldn’t copy her. Luckily, the man driving the car was head of a modelling agency and asked Joy to come to his office with her parents. She then quit school that year to pursue her career as a model and actress!
