Maya Hawke admits filming ‘Stranger Things’ was ‘heartbreaking’

Maya Hawke admits filming the final season of Stranger Things was “heartbreaking.”
The 25-year-old actress, who joined the series as Robin Buckley in its third season, which aired five years ago, is trying to be there for her castmate and crew, who have been a part of the Netflix sci-fi series since the beginning.
She told Entertainment Tonight: “It’s starting to get painful, you know? I mean, it’s the end of a really long journey.
“Even longer for some of my castmates than for me. It’s really sentimental.
“But as a cast member who joined later, I feel like it’s my job to be here to ease their feelings and just be grateful and excited that I was even a part of it.”
Despite all the emotions surrounding the end of the series – which will end with the upcoming fifth and final season – and the often exhausting storyline, Maya tries to be the one who cheers people up on set.
She added: “We shoot for a long time, so it kind of brings joy to life and finds it every day and makes it new. It’s really great fun.”
The “Inside Out 2” star is the daughter of Hollywood stars Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman, and recently admitted that “so many people” in the world can’t pursue a career like hers because they don’t have industry connections.
She told the Saturday Times: “Deserves…” is a complicated word.
“There are a lot of people who deserve this life and who don’t deserve it, but I guess I feel comfortable that I don’t deserve it and I do it anyway.
“And I know that if I don’t do it, it won’t help anyone. When I started, I saw two paths, and one of them was: change your name, get a nose job and go to open auditions.”
