Everything We Know About Bones & All Actress

Taylor Russell. If you haven’t already heard that name, it’s time to familiarise yourself with it because you’ll be hearing a lot more about this incredibly talented rising star.

Hollywood is buzzing all about the new movie Bones & All, which, yes, it does star our beloved Timothée Chalamet, but don’t be mistaken because it is actually Taylor who takes on the lead in the movie.

Based on Camille DeAngelis’ novel of the same name, the movie star Taylor Russell as Maren Yearly, a young woman who suffers from a condition that sees her wanting to eat other humans, something that she has had since she was a child. (Is anybody thinking of Silence of the Lambs, or just us? ) Anyways, after being abandoned by her mother on her sixteenth birthday, Maren falls in love with a fellow cannibalism lover and intense drifter Lee (Timothée). The pair embark on a cross-country trip during Ronald Reagan’s America, where all roads lead them back to their terrifying pasts….

Given the intense nature of the plot, you can be sure that director Luca Guadagnino searched far and wide to find the perfect Maren, and we don’t blame him for landing his sights on 28-year-old Taylor.

So, with Bones & All opening up to critical acclaim on the film festival circuit, how exactly did Taylor become Hollywood’s most sought-after rising star?

Well, Canadian-born Taylor made her professional acting debut ten years earlier with a small guest role in an episode of the medical drama series Emily Owens, M. D. A further slate of appearances came Taylor’s way in the form of Lifetime’s television film The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story alongside the show’s original cast member, Lark Voorhies.

Other acting credentials included the drama series Strange Empire, the science-fiction series Falling Skies and the horror series Dead of Summer.

After paying her dues over several years, Taylor first earned recognition in 2018 for her starring role as Judy Robinson in the science fiction Netflix series Lost in Space, and also took the lead in 2019’s psychological horror film Escape Room, which was a huge success. She reprised her role of Zoey Davis in the sequel Escape Room: Tournament of Champions, which was just as commercially successful. She also won praise for Edward Shults’ family drama Waves in 2019.
