She became a model after being scouted in London by Sarah Doukas, founder of Storm Model Managment. However, she almost missed that chance, because she initially mistook Doukas for a stalker. While walking in the streets, she noticed a car trailing her, after which she tried to run away. She then heard someone calling from the car "If you stop you won't regret it... please, there's someone in this car who would really like to meet you." Anya consented and was signed to Storm the following day. Through her modeling job, she would later meet an acting agency where she signed up, and it all went from there.
