Any actor worth their salt is going to do a little research for the roles they’re taking on. Anya Taylor-Joy is one of those actors, and the accolades and awards she’s accrued over the years is proof of that. That’s why it’s no surprise to learn she did her homework when it came to the Mario movie.

In an interview with Modern Luxury San Diego Mag, Taylor-Joy spoke a bit about her involvement with the Super Mario Bros. movie, where she’s voicing Princess Peach. According to ATJ, being involved with the film turned her into a gamer!

“So now I am a gamer, and it’s really fun. Ideally, I like playing at arcades, because, again, it’s like cinema; I love the ceremony. I’ll go with a whole bunch of friends. And we’ll just spend hours at the arcade.”

Hearing that, I’ve got two burning questions I need answered. First, I’d love to hear what Anya is spending her time playing. Second, and perhaps more important, where in the world did Anya find an arcade to hang out in!?

Near my place there's a retro arcade place, maybe something like that or someone's home arcade setup?

Arcades certainly have a unique social aspect. I'd like to get back to one soon.

We never had arcades in germany (aside very few in some major cities). I'm kinda jelly that you still have them over there...
