Maya Hawke first appeared on many viewer’s radars when she joined the cast of “Stranger Things” as Robin in 2019. The actor is steadily building a solid career for herself, with roles that cover a wide range of genres. Of course, she’s not without mentorship when it comes to which movie and TV parts she should take: her parents are the actors Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman. In a few short years as a working actress, Hawke has appeared in projects including “Fear Street Part One: 1994” and “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.” In the coming months, she’ll also appear in Wes Anderson’s “Asteroid City” and Bradley Cooper’s “Maestro.”
Hawke opened up to Curbed Magazine in June about how joining “Stranger Things” solidified her career choice and how she’s grown in her role as Robin. She said, “‘Stranger Things’ is one of the few things at that moment that was as heavy as my parents. I was excited to get enough credits under my belt that being a celebrity kid was only a piece of the larger picture and not the whole picture. So in the end, I crossed my fingers that I wouldn’t fail in front of the ‘Stranger Things’ fans.”
Hawke, who’s also a musician, also spoke about her acting process at the time. She told Curbed, “Sometimes people say actors are liars but, for me, it’s the place where I can’t lie. It’s the place where lies feel poisonous, you have to find a way for everything to be true. Connect the tissues of you and the character. I feel the same way in music where for me, it’s faith and sanctuary and a place where anything is possible, but everything has to be true.” Ahead, see every movie and TV show Maya Hawke has starred in so far.
