Uma Thurman and Ethan Hawke’s Daughter Maya Is Joining Stranger Things Season 3 Cast

Stranger Things is adding a member of Hollywood royalty to its cast.

For the Netflix series’ upcoming and highly anticipated third season, Uma Thurman and Ethan Hawke‘s 19-year-old daughter, Maya Thurman-Hawke, has been tapped to play “alternative girl” Robin.

“Maya Thurman-Hawke is headed to Hawkins as Robin, an ‘alternative girl,’ ” the streaming service tweeted. “That is her literal character description so get ready for some angst.”

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

According to Variety, Maya’s character will discover a secret in Hawkins, Indiana — the fictional town where the sci-fi series is set.

In January, Hawke opened up to PEOPLE about how proud he was of his daughter, whom he shares with ex-wife Thurman. Maya stars as Jo March in the new BBC adaption of Little Women — a role last played by his old friend and costar Winona Ryder, who also stars in Stranger Things.

“Words cannot explain,” Hawke told PEOPLE from Cafe Artois at the Sundance Film Festival.

“She was always an artist, writing poems, singing songs. She didn’t discover acting until junior year of high school,” he explained about Maya.

“It’s one of the most amazing moments of my life watching her in Little Women,” Hawke continued. She didn’t do a good job, she did a great job. To see your child thrive, and to see her thrive at a profession that you have a lot of respect for, that I’ve dedicated my life to, I was so proud of her.”

He was especially pleased seeing her follow in the footsteps of Ryder, who also starred in an adaptation of the novel in 1994 — the same year she costarred with Hawke in the Generation X cult classic Reality Bites. 

“Winona in Little Women was astounding, so for me to see my daughter play a part that one of my favorite actresses played, and Katherine Hepburn before her, it’s awesome,” Hawke said.

Meryl Streep Is Joining Big Little Lies—and Internet Reactions Are Too Funny

Meryl Streep is joining the cast of Big Little Lies for season 2. Yep, you read that right. Fresh off of the show’s major award wins at the Golden Globes and SAGs, Streep is the latest celeb that will star in the HBO show. It’s already been confirmed that Streep will be playing the mother of Perry (played by Alexander Skarsgard). According to Hollywood Reporter, “Skarsgard is said to be returning in some capacity for season two,” but we’re already predicting that Meryl will be getting some serious screen time with Nicole Kidman (who plays Skarsgard’s wife) when the show airs.

We didn’t think BLL could get more star studded than it’s already impressive female cast including Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Laura Dern, Zoe Kravitz, and Shailene Woodley—but it just has in a major way. Witherspoon already tweeted a welcome to her new co-star: “Beyond thrilled to have the one, the only, Meryl Streep joining the cast of #BLL for season 2. Get ready for more wine, secrets, and Big Little Lies. Monterey better watch out!!!” And it sounds like everyone else is as excited as Witherspoon. When the news broke today, the internet quickly lost it. Here are the best reactions to the news.

Alber Elbaz, Apple Not Joining Forces

Alber Elbaz and Apple are not joining forces, despite tepid rumors to the contrary.
Sources told WWD that there is no collaboration or business partnership between the well-known designer and the tech powerhouse after speculation appeared in a small European media outlet.
A representative for Apple declined to comment, citing a policy on “rumors.” Reached by phone, Elbaz also declined to comment. While attending the Valentino show in October, WWD asked Elbaz what he was up to lately, but he demurred, saying, “You know, silence is a beautiful thing.”
Elbaz did discuss a bit about Apple and fashion during a 2016 talk with students at Beijing’s Tsinghua University, recounting his experience at the launch party for the Apple Watch and concluding then that the future of fashion was “mixing technology and the humanity and beauty of fashion.”
Elbaz has been keeping busy with various design projects and plenty of speaking engagements since his abrupt and acrimonious 2015 dismissal from Lanvin, where he served as creative director for 14 years and revived the 129-year-old French fashion house. But he seems to be shying away from apparel.
He’s designed a Converse sneaker, released a limited-edition makeup line with Lancôme, created a fragrance with French perfumer Frédéric
