In an interview with Collider, Anya-Taylor Joy spoke about her role in the upcoming film Glass as well as the reshoots for FOX’s X-Men spin-off The New Mutants. Here are highlights:

On if she knew Split would be a sequel: “No. Night is a mastermind. Whenever people are like, “Do you ever try to figure out what he’s going to do next?,” I’m like, “No, I just let him be, and when I’m supposed to know, I’ll know.” We went to a test screening in Arizona, just the two of us, and at the end of the movie, I was really buzzing. I’d never seen Split before, and it wasn’t with the ending with David (Bruce Willis) in it. We went outside into the parking lot, and I was really buzzing. I was like, “This is so crazy!” And then, he let me in on it and I was just like, “Oh, my goodness! That’s going to blow people’s minds! That’s so crazy! You have to allow me to come onto set and see you doing it.” And he was just like, “What makes you think you’re not coming, too? Casey is a part of Glass.” I was just like, “Really?! Seriously?!” I was fangirling so hard. I found out about it the way that everyone in the audience found out and was just like, “No way! That’s crazy!” It’s really fun to be part of a movie where you know that it’s a cinematic experience for people. People will remember being in that movie theater and seeing Bruce Willis pop up on screen, and experiencing that mindfuck. It was crazy!”

On what made Glass different to shoot: “With Split, there was a giant sense of adventure and discovery. We were making something different, and it was weird and everything was so intense. There was a real sense of adventure with Split, whilst with Glass, it felt so epic. Every single day, everyone was so happy to be there because we were aware that we were making cinematic history. That’s a big deal. And then, you see Sam [Jackson] in his costume. I’m a true fangirl, so I was just like, “Oh, my god, that’s Elijah Price! That’s crazy! And I’m in a scene with him. That’s nuts!” I think we were all just so excited to be a part of it, and all very grateful to be a part of something so monumental.”

On the New Mutants reshoots: I think we’re making the movie that we set out to make, in the beginning. That’s what we’re going to end up delivering to people. It feels like the movie we all signed up to do, which is good.
