Daughter of actors, Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman, Maya Hawke will be playing a role in Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming film, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood. The young actor recently opened about up about how she became part of such a major project to a leading Hollywood magazine. She shed some light on the role that her father played in her being cast in the film.
Maya said, "I got an audition for the project through the normal channels through my agents. I did an audition in my bedroom with my dad. We sent in the tape to Quentin and I got a callback. He actually organized a really amazing callback process that was unlike anything I've ever been through ... except for maybe auditioning for drama school. It was all day.”
She continued, “We worked on the scene in many different ways and in many different combinations of people and eventually he found a group of people who were doing the scene in a way that he liked. And then everyone went home and people got the call."
Reports say that Once Upon A Time In Hollywood has proved to be a game-changer for Maya. She made her debut as Jo March in the BBC adaptation of Little Women in 2017. She was recently seen in the Netflix Original series Stranger Things where she essayed the role of Robin.
Once Upon A Time In Hollywood stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt and Margot Robbie. It is scheduled to release in India on August 15, 2019.
