Anya Taylor-Joy gave a stellar performance as Beth Harmon in the Netflix original series The Queen’s Gambit, which premiered on the streaming platform in October 2020.
Based on the novel of the same name by Walter Tevis, the seven-episode miniseries tells the story of a young orphan named Beth who discovers her talent for chess, an affinity that leads her to become one of the best chess players in the world. The series was ranked at the No. 2 spot in the U.S. on Netflix’s Top 10 List when it was initially released.
The Queen’s Gambit follows a talented woman attempting to make a name for herself in the male-dominated chess circuit during the 1950s and 1960s. The production design and costume design were impeccable, which really set the tone for the show. Anya Taylor-Joy shines in the lead role and the supporting characters were also great; We particularly loved Thomas Brodie-Sangster as Benny Watts.
