Netflix’s most recent drama series, The Queen’s Gambit, has hooked audiences all around the world.

But now, the star of the hit, Anya Taylor-Joy has made a heartbreaking revelation about her personal feelings in regard to her own appearance. Read on to see what she had to say…

And since it was founded in 1997, it has experienced nothing but unbelievable volumes of success.

Netflix began launching its own content 6 years ago, starting with political drama, House of Cards, which has gone on to have 6 seasons.

Closely following House of Cards was Orange Is The New Black, which just aired its seventh and final season, and is one of the platform’s biggest success stories.

Many people signed up to the platform to watch the hit show, which follows Piper Chapman as she is sentenced to spend time in a minimum-security women’s prison in Connecticut for transporting drug money 10 years earlier.

Shows such as The CrownGlow, and Grace and Frankie have all attracted huge viewership.

And, of course, we can’t forget Stranger Things.

The sci-fi show debuted in 2016 and has since become one of the most popular Netflix originals on the platform.

Out of all the streaming services, there’s no doubt Netflix is top of the game – with over sixty million paying subscribers in the U.S. alone.

People are going absolutely wild for The Queen’s Gambit, with many seeing it as one of the best sports shows ever.













Now, The Queen’s Gambit isn’t your generic Netflix series.

Set in 1960’s America, the series follows an introverted, orphaned child as she grows into an unbeatable chess champion.

“Orphaned at 9, prodigious introvert Beth Harmon discovers and masters the game of chess in 1960s USA. But, child stardom comes at a price,” the series’ synopsis reads.

The Queen’s Gambit challenges topics such as sexism and the ways in which women were treated in the 1960s…

And viewers simply love the heartwarming yet devastating morale behind the story.

The star of the series, Anya Taylor-Joy, has received a lot praise for her performance.

The American-Argentine-British actress is best known for her roles in Peaky Blinders, Emma, and Glass, and she’s already cemented herself as a very talented and versatile actress.

She opened up to The Sun this weekend about her own perception of herself, and it’s breaking people’s hearts.

“I don’t think I’m beautiful enough to be in films.”

“But I just think I’m weird-looking.”

“The beauty of being in your own skin is that you don’t have to look at your own face.”

“I genuinely had a panic attack on Emma because I thought, ‘I am the first ugly Emma and I can’t do this.'”

“Because the first line in the movie is, ‘I’m handsome, clever and rich.'”

We hope as her success grows, she’ll learn to see what the world sees! Want more from Netflix? Scroll on for the major complaint everyone has with The Haunting of Bly Manor.
