In the latest chapter of Nepotism in Hollywood, this model (who is the daughter of two VERY famous actors) Snagged a job before starting Julliard by working as a model for AllSaint’s 2017 catalogue and video.
So who’s this freckle-faced beauty? Find out, after the jump!
She’s Maya Thurman-Hawke, the daughter of (you guessed it) Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman!
While being interviewed at TIFF for The Magnificent Seven, Ethan Hawke gave Maya and her career path his full seal of approval:
“She did that modeling gig so that she didn’t have to ask me for spending money,” Hawke, 45, told me with a laugh while promoting his new action western The Magnificent Seven (in theaters Sept. 23) at the Toronto International Film Festival.
The artsy video features Maya running through fields and swimming in a country lake.
Maya recently started her freshman year at the Juilliard School, the prestigious performing arts college in New York City. “She’s studying to be an actress and so I think she does look beautiful [in the AllSaints video], but what I’m really most proud of is how beautiful she is inside, because she truly is,” Hawke gushed.
The Before Sunset actor insisted that he’s not nervous “at all” about Maya following in her parents’ footsteps. “She’s got her head on straight,” Hawke said, adding that she often visits him at work. “She loved watching all these different actors on set and she’s so passionate about the arts.”
Both Uma and Ethan began their careers at fifteen so by familial standards she’s kind of getting a late start. I’m giving her a lot of credit for getting into Juilliard and making an effort to study acting rather than asking mommy or daddy to make a few phone calls for her. And honestly, if I had to have famous actor parents…there are definitely worse and dumber people you can think of than Ethan and Uma, who are really serious and smart and funny.
