Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman’s 19-year-old daughter Maya is ready to debut her acting in three successful TV shows and it is believed that she is going to be the next big thing in Hollywood. Maya will be seen in PBS’s Little Women miniseries, season three of Stranger Things, and 2019 thriller Ladyworld.The actress has already started making public appearances and is promoting her upcoming debut in Little Women. Wowing people with her sophisticated attire, Maya was seen wearing a black pantsuit and red turtleneck sweater, a chic set of velvet sandals that made the entire attire a perfect fit. She paired the suit with a small black clutch and silver spider brooch.
Due to dyslexia, Maya had to move many schools and was finally enrolled at Saint Ann's School, a private school in Brooklyn, New York. The school was famous for emphasizing artistic creativity and not grading work. It was here that Maya found her passion in acting.
In order to pursue her dreams, she attended the performing arts school Juilliard for one year but was forced to drop out after accepting her role in Little Women. Apart from acting, Maya also followed the footsteps of her mother, Uma, and Grandmother, Nena von Schlebrügge and started her career by modeling for Vogue.
She was also chosen as the face of the British fashion retailer AllSaints's 2016/2017 collection. In 2017, she became part of several faces in a video campaign for Calvin Klein's underwear range which was directed by Sofia Coppola. Seeing their daughter doing extremely well already, there is no doubt that her parents are proud of her. Talking to The Sun, Ethan confessed he was happy to see their daughter following the footsteps of her parents.
"She was always an artist, writing poems, singing songs," he said. "She didn’t discover acting until junior year of high school. It’s one of the most amazing moments of my life watching her in Little Women." It would be great to see what Maya brings to the other shows that she is expected to be in.
