While Maya is known for her appearance in the Stranger Things franchise and recently in the miniseries The Good Lord and the film Mainstream directed by Gia Coppola.
Fans of the 22-year-old star are expecting to see what her next feature will be, as she has caused a great impact among her newly found fanbase, similar to the success of her parents Uma Thurman and Ethan Hawke at the early stages of their careers.
