Maya Hawke has been simply amazing as Robin Buckley. There is no actress who could’ve played the role of Robin as well as she did. However, even though Stranger Things is Maya’s most notable work to date, she has also appeared in numerous projects. In fact, Maya made an appearance on The Good Lord Bird in 2020, besides her father, Ethan.

While promoting the show about legendary abolitionist John Brown, Ethan, who played Brown, credited Stranger Things for helping Maya get cast in the show.

Let us see what Ethan Hawke had to say.

Stranger Things helped Maya Hawke get other roles

Stranger Things certainly has helped its actors make great careers for themselves. Each actor from the show has gone on to star in multiple high-budgeted projects.

But apparently, it helped Ethan Hawke more than anyone else as he got a chance to work with his daughter thanks to the Netflix Original.

While appearing on Late Night with Seth Meyers back in 2020, Ethan shared how he desperately wanted Maya to play John Brown’s daughter, Annie Brown.

But Ethan said he did not know how to bring the conversation up with his producers. Fortunately, the 51-year-old actor did not have to.

Ethan said that after watching Stranger Things, the producers themselves called Ethan to enquire to see if Maya would be interested in playing Annie and stopped him for being a “crazy, nepotistic dad.”

Ethan commented, “The funny thing about it was that I really wanted Maya, and they were glad to have her. And I was glad to have her, and she was happy to be there.”

The Marvel actor then went on to say how fortunate he felt that he got to work with his daughter and also mentioned how artistic Maya is.

He even shared how he and Maya used to draw when she was young and how impressed Ethan was with her work. The father-daughter duo will also be seen together in the unreleased Beatles-inspired comedy, Revolver.

Portraying a character with whom you can identify is one of the great privileges of being an actor. Therefore, when Millie Bobby Brown got to portray Eleven in Stranger Things and Enola in Enola Holmes, adapting the character became a little easier for her. However, there are some key changes she had to make to justify the character, which she talks about in an interview.

The Netflix Originals, Stranger Things and Enola Holmes, have given Millie Bobby Brown two different identities. While achieving many things in her career, Millie Bobby Brown has received a lot of respect from many women. In fact, after the success of the first Enola Holmes film, she posted an encouraging message for young girls. Now, after the success of the Enola Holmes sequel, she shares her feelings about playing two feminist characters.

Millie Bobby Brown could identify with the characters

With the changing times, everything around us changes as well. Now, women are finding themselves in more versatile roles. That is what Enola Holmes represented. Meanwhile, in Stranger Things, Eleven took charge of the evil situations and found her voice. She spoke loudly for her rights and herself. The 18-year-old actress portrayed both of these characters. Talking about them, Brown revealed, “I personally identify as a feminist.” 

The actress also said she believed in women’s rights, specifically that of children. She added she wanted to protect them as much as she could. She started out in the industry when she was just a child. The young Eleven actress got an amazing education, and she wished to give the same kind of education to others as well. With the changing world, Brown is of the belief that we need to educate our next young generation to help change the planet.

This is how this talented and skilled actress felt when she portrayed two feminist characters simultaneously.

#Snoop #Dogg #Invited #Prince #Harry #Meghan #Markle #special #Thanksgiving #Renunciation

Everyone is aware of how welcoming the US has been to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Ever since their renunciation of the Royal Family, many legitimate stars and celebrities have extended their support to the couple. From Madonna to the American Rapper, Snoop Dogg, all praised the pair for defying royal customs and conventions. With Thanksgiving 2022 wrapped up, it is time for a throwback to when the “Deep Cover” rapper, who is currently in the headlines, invited the couple over for the same. 

After the infamous Megxit, the self-exiled couple was enthusiastic about meeting new personalities across the world. As reported by many publishing houses and news media, Prince Harry and Meghan have always taken time out of their tight schedule to meet and greet people of all backgrounds and races, building up on the groundwork laid by Lady Diana. 

Snoop Dogg once praised Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and called them over for thanksgiving

Last year, in October, the couple strengthened their ties with another fellow American personality. Carrying their diverse legacy forward, they graced the occasion of Thanksgiving as they came over to Snoop Dogg’s house. When the couple officially gave up on their UK sovereigns, the rapper made it a point to praise them for their step. He reportedly said to publications, “Prince Harry and Meghan Markle…got an even bigger set of balls.” 

Continuing further, the rapper claimed that “they got to live their life their way.” And that, as he affirmed, gained them tremendous respect from his end. In the same interview, he extended his hearty invitations to the couple for Thanksgiving the same year. Dogg reportedly mentioned, “if they want to come over for Thanksgiving dinner, they are in for something special.” The rapper continued to make Prince Harry and Meghan Markle feel at home, saying they can come over to his crib.

Flexing his hospitality, he further added, he was taught to cook by none other than Chef Gordon Ramsay. Well before the Thanksgiving invitation, rumors had it that the star would perform at Prince William’s bachelor party. Reports say the rapper considers Harry and William as his “boys”. 

There has always been a good friendship between the star and the Royals. However, he did not back from praising the daring couples for their massive step. 

At present, the Sussexes are leading their freedom-filled lives in their Montecito abode, awaiting Spare’s and their docuseries’ release. Meanwhile, Snoop Dogg is in the news for his resemblance to a Senegal coach.
