“Lilies that Fester: Autumn de Wilde and Anya Taylor-Joy Discuss ‘Emma.’ and How Easy It Is to Slip into Cruelty”

It’s always a delight speaking with Anya Taylor-Joy, and by that I mean I’ve spoken with her twice in four years. I’m telling you this to avoid the appearance of putting on airs; it’s not like we talk all the time or anything. But she is a delight, and so is her director for Emma., Autumn de Wilde*, and I had a wonderful time interviewing them both about my favorite least-favorite subject (Twitter) and how jealous I am of Emma to grow up in a time when social media didn’t fucking exist.

Honestly, this all came about due to recent events involving the director of Deathgasm doin’ a casual racism online. So in a weird way I’m indebted to Jason Lei Howden’s atrocious behavior for the incredible conversation** I had with Anya and Autumn. Regardless, this is the kind of thing I aspire to with my interviews, so I truly hope you dig it.

The full piece is posted over at Paste Magazine.


*Disclosure: De Wilde has done photography for Paste Magazine in the past. Do with that what you will. (Nothing. You will do nothing with it. There’s nothing you can do with it. So there.)
**Plus a separate piece-yet-to-be-published. So: Teaser!
