Does Malcolm McRae Have Any Pets?

Charlie (Black Phillip from 'The Witch') (Goat)

Breed: Black | Adopted 2015

In the 2015 movie The Witch, Anya Taylor-Joy’s family has a billy goat named Black Phillip, whose real name is Charlie. Charlie was infamous for his bad boy behavior on set. He’d either take a nap when they needed him to act act aggressive or if he was supposed to be still, he’d rip around the set. Ralph Ineson, the actor playing Anya’s dad, had several scenes grappling with the goat, who tipped the scales at 210 pounds (about 50 pounds more than the actor). Charlie ended up ramming Ineson with his horns one day on set, which dislodged a tendon and had the actor taking painkillers for the month left of shooting.

Khala (Dog)

Admitted animal lover and acclaimed actress Anya Taylor-Joy has a dog named Khala. She actually got her start in modeling, 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 modeling 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!

Kitsune (Cat)

Breed: Ragdoll | Adopted May 2022

In 2022, while filming Furiosa in Australia, Anya Talyor-Joy adopted a Ragdoll cat named Kitsune. She adopted the cat to keep her company through the exhausting shoot, but later admitted in interviews that Kitsune immediately stole the spotlight from her.
