Uma Thurman & Ethan Hawk's Talented Kids: Maya & Levon Hawke's 4 Best Roles
Are they outshining their famous parents?
When you think of Hollywood dynasties, the first names that might pop into your mind are probably the Barrymores or the Sheens. But there’s a new generation of talent.
For Maya and Levon Hawke, as the children of Uma Thurman and Ethan Hawke, the acting prowess runs in their genes. While both parents have left indelible marks on the world of cinema, their children are fast making waves of their own.
1. Once Upon a Time in Hollywood — Maya Hawke
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, a cinematic masterpiece by Quentin Tarantino, took us back to 1969’s Hollywood. In the middle of it all, we see Maya Hawke portraying Flower Child, a Manson Family member.
Even though she isn’t in the spotlight throughout the movie, she makes a lasting impression by being the one member who breaks free from the infamous cult.
2. The Crowded Room — Levon Hawke
Levon Hawke reminded us about the exceptional Thurman-Hawke genes in the Apple TV+ series Crowded Room. Playing the role of Johnny, Levon depicts a character that seems to always pick the wrong path.
Despite Johnny's intentions to help, his rash choices tend to land the protagonist, Danny, portrayed by Tom Holland, in hot water. Those who watched the series know what it really means.
3. Stranger Things — Maya Hawke
Now, who hasn’t heard of Stranger Things? Maya's entry as Robin Buckley in the show's season 3 was nothing short of splendid. Working alongside Steve at the Scoops Ahoy! ice cream parlor, their banter-filled relationship was an instant hit with fans.
The big reveal about Robin being the series' first major LGBT character was a significant moment, and Maya handled it with grace. Fans are eagerly waiting for her return in the upcoming season 5.
4. Pussy Island (Upcoming Film) — Levon Hawke
Well, this movie hasn’t been released yet, and while details are still under wraps, given Levon's performance in The Crowded Room and the fact that it's Zoë Kravitz’s directorial debut, expectations are flying high.
The story revolves around a cocktail waitress and a tech mogul on a private island. Sounds intriguing.
