Anya Taylor-Joy was confronted by overzealous fans as she landed in France ahead of an appearance at Cannes Film Festival.

The 28-year-old is at the annual film festival to promote her upcoming movie, Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga, which serves as a prequel to the 2015 hit, Mad Max: Fury Road.

She will be hitting up the red carpet alongside her co-stars, Chris Hemsworth and Tom Burke, and director George Miller.

Videos making the rounds on social media saw the moment locals went into meltdown at the first sighting of the Queen’s Gambit lead, hoping to get her attention.

In a video shared on TikTok by a user known as Makaveli75paris, Anya could be seen making her way to her car in a stunning strapless orange dress – with a thigh-high slit – complete with brown heels, sunglasses and a giant straw hat.

She was flanked by security guards as she strolled, when a fan appeared armed with a pen and something for her to sign, desperately pleading for an autograph.

Her security team initially pushed the man in question away, but he followed the star down the street, continually shoving the pen in her face.

The clip ended with Anya standing by her car, waiting to leave the area, as more fans surrounded the vehicle, hounding her for a signature.

Those watching the action from afar were left stunned by the footage, with many left ‘anxious’ by the scenes.

Unpacking the video on social media, prominent journalist Yashar Ali tweeted: ‘These fans are so insane omg. This is Anya Taylor-Joy at Cannes.’

Brad King replied: ‘Those are not fans. Those are autograph hounds that would have immediately listed that stuff for sale 60 seconds after she had signed it.’

‘They aren’t fans. They just sell those autographs online for a massive profit,’ Tammy Famous agreed.

Av Michal replied: ‘I literally would never want to be famous in a million years. It’s a special kind of hell.’
