The 18-year old Maya Thurman-Hawke, daughter of Uma Thurman and Ethan Hawke, kicks off her modeling career starting with the British brand, All Saints. This Spring/Summer 2017, whilst shooting for the campaign Maya also stars in a short film titled Far From Here. According to reports, Far From Here aspires to create an “uplifting alternative to fashion week” with Maya running wild in the picturesque countryside of Woodstock, also her hometown in New York.
“Anyone who spends any time with Maya will tell you that she’s smart, cool and possesses an infectious enthusiasm for new ideas, the creative process, and life in general,” All Saints’ creative director Wil Beedle explained.
“And as the title suggests, making this film with Maya is a conscious decision to escape from the city and New York’s increasingly overcrowded fashion week. Taking a trip up to Woodstock with Maya to capture the collection in the environment that inspired it–and then share it a week later with the world–felt more appropriate, more free, more now.”
The self-explanatory title takes its audience a trip down memory lane, back to one’s roots where it all happened. Running away from the hustle and bustle of the City to a much pleasant countryside, clearly shows the uniqueness of the Spring/Summer 2017 collection. Maya is known for her ingenuity, just as the campaign itself.
Maya is a freshman at the Juilliard School in New York, which says a lot about her talent. According to her father, Ethan Hawke, this was not the only reason behind her modeling decision.
But in fact, “she did that modeling gig so that she didn’t have to ask me for spending money,” Hawke told E! News at the Toronto International Film Festival.
“She’s studying to be an actress and so I think she does look beautiful [in the All Saints video], but what I’m really most proud of is how beautiful she is inside, because she truly is,” Hawke added.
We wish Maya Thurman-Hawke all the best for her modeling career! Make it acting or modeling, she presents herself beautifully on screen. She has the confidence and the creativity required to be a successful Television Artist.
