Who is Taylor Russell?

Born in Canada, Taylor had dreams of becoming a ballet dancer or a painter until she took acting classes at 18 years old, she told Dazed in 2022. After buying a Toyota Yaris and constantly traveling to Los Angeles to audition, Taylor recalled that it took “four years before anything happened.”

Taylor got a big break in 2018 when she landed the role of Judy Robinson in Netflix’s sci-fi series Lost in Space.

“I hope people like me and I hope girls can see themselves in my character and see something they can relate to,” she told TheGrio in 2018. “I know there are not a lot of women of color who are in the sci-fi genre and I feel really lucky that they chose me to hold that position on our show.”

By 2019, Taylor had starred in horror film Escape Room and drama Waves. She picked up more recognition when she acted alongside Timothée Chalamet in 2022’s Bones and All, a movie centered on the lives of two young cannibals.

Taylor is performing at London’s National Theatre for The Effect, a play following two young volunteers in a clinical drug trial. The play marks Taylor’s first onstage performance in over a decade.

“I’m terrified,” she told Vogue in an interview published July 18. “I just want to be challenged and do things I’ve never done before.”

Where does Taylor Russell live?

Taylor lives in New York City, where she’s found comfort in the writings of singer Patti Smith, she told Dazed.

“Her words are so deeply ingrained in the map of my body,” said Taylor, who has a lightning bolt tattoo on her inner wrist to match Patti’s ink on her knee. “I discovered her writing when I first moved here, and I felt akin to her in so many different ways—ways that have revealed themselves to me more with time and reflection.”
