And British actress Anya Taylor-Joy was seen on Tuesday puffing on a cigarette after a morning of filming at Melrose Park in Sydney’s northwest.
The 26-year-old Queen’s Gambit star exited her van with a cigarette in her mouth before taking a few puffs, pressing it to the ground and jumping into her waiting vehicle.
Stressful day? Anya Taylor-Joy was seen puffing a cigarette after finishing filming on the set of Mad Max: Furiosa in Sydney on Tuesday
The blond beauty was dressed casually after her day of filming and showed off her slim figure in black trousers paired with a navy blue sweater.
She had styled her long locks in a braid and her face was completely made up.
Last week, Anya was also spotted smoking in Sydney’s Hyde Park.
She sat down on a park bench and lit a cigarette, flashing her beautiful wedding and engagement ring.

Production on the film resumed this week after the site was forced to close after legendary director George Miller Covid. contracted
Last year, the Golden Globe winner revealed that she suffered a burnout while filming The Queens’s Gambit, as it came right after filming two movies.
The first was her lead role in Autumn de Wilde’s big screen adaptation of Emma. After just one day off, she started working on psychological horror Last Night in Soho, before immediately filming The Queen’s Gambit.
“I survived on Diet Coke, cigarettes and coffee, and by the end I was like, ‘I have to eat a vegetable,'” she told Tatler magazine at the time.
By the time she started filming the Netflix miniseries, Anya admitted that she was in bed by 8pm every night, but struggled with wanting to go out and party like her friends in their 20s.
It’s: go home, take a bath, get up for work. I sound mental, but that’s what’s working for me right now,” she added.
Production on the latest Mad Max episode Furiosa was halted in Sydney last week after legendary director George Miller caught Covid.
Daily Mail Australia revealed that production, which has been underway in a number of locations in and around Sydney since June, has been suspended for a week and all on-screen shooting has been halted until at least August 15.

Clearly, Miller, 77, tested positive for Covid and was immediately forced into isolation at his Sydney home.
The setback echoes Miller’s infamous shooting for Mad Max: Fury Road in 2012, which was plagued by a number of costly delays and production issues.
Filming initially started in Namibia, but ran into a number of PR problems after the Namibian Conservation Coast and Management Project accused the producers of damaging a number of plant and animal species in a leaked design.
The filmmakers later dismissed these messages as “rhetoric.”
Subsequent filming took place in Potts Hill and Penrith Lakes in western Sydney, but bad weather led to a number of delays.
Years later, it was also revealed that tensions between Mad Max: Fury Road stars Charlize Theron and Tom Hardy also led to major disturbances on set, with Theron later admitting that she demanded protection from Hardy at one point.
Speaking to writer Kyle Buchanan for his book Blood, Sweat & Chrome: The Wild and True Story of Mad Max: Fury Road, Theron said Hardy’s late presence on set created tensions that almost completely derailed the film.
After Hardy arrived several hours late one day, Theron asked the British actor; “How disrespectful are you?” and said the producers “should pay the f—— a $100,000 fine for every minute he delays this crew.”

Hardy responded by “rushing at her” and saying, “What did you say to me?”
The Oscar-winning actress later confirmed that the couple had “settled” their disagreements.
The film grossed nearly $400 million worldwide and won six Oscars.
Furiosa is a prequel to Fury Road with Anya Taylor-Joy playing a younger Theron in the title role as the headliner of the post-apocalyptic blockbuster.
Taylor-Joy and co-star Chris Hemsworth were first caught on set just before the current shutdown, with both wearing a red wig for their roles.
Details about Hemsworth’s character in the film have been kept secret by Miller and studio insiders Warner Bros., with his role officially defined as “unspecified.”
