Anya Taylor-Joy spotted smoking on hotel balcony ahead of Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga world premiere

American actress Anya Taylor-Joy was seen smoking a cigarette while relaxing on the balcony of her hotel room in Sydney.

The 28-year-old was in the country with co-star Chris Hemsworth to promote the latest Mad Max film, Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga, ahead of its Australian release on Thursday.

The Queen’s Gambit star, born in Miami but raised in London, was seen enjoying some quiet time in a fluffy white robe.

Her blonde hair was curled and she had makeup on, but she looked like she needed a few minutes of respite before finalizing her outfit.

The film Furiosa follows Taylor-Joy’s character as she seeks revenge for the trauma inflicted by the cruel Dementus, played brilliantly by Hemsworth, who has spent years playing the superhero Thor.

The film was shot in the outback of regional New South Wales and fans can expect plenty of wildly pimped-out vehicles, visceral action and plenty of unforgiving wasteland.

Director George Miller’s follow-up to the 2015 box office hit Fury Road arrives 45 years after the filmmaker launched Mel Gibson’s career with Mad Max.

Speaking to The West Australian, Miller said he always thought 1985’s Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome would be the last film in the franchise, but improvements in digital filmmaking and special effects inspired him to make Fury Road.

Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga hits Australian cinema screens on May 23.
