Stranger Things’ Newest Cast Member Is the Daughter of *This* Former Hollywood Power Couple
The Strangers Things gang just got a little bit bigger! We already knew that season three of the show would likely introduce us to a few new faces, with director Shawn Levy teasing appearances from Eleven’s mysterious siblings (“I can’t imagine that the world will only ever know Eleven and Eight”). Apparently, the core gang, reportedly in high school at this point, will also be gaining a member or two, however, with Maya Thurman-Hawke also signing onboard to round out the group’s girl power.
That’s right! In addition to Millie Bobby Brown as Eleven and newbie Sadie Sink as Mad Max, the kids, er, young adults, will also welcome onboard Uma Thurman and Ethan Hawke’s daughter as a new cast member named Robin. According to the The Hollywood Reporter, her character will be “an alternative girl who is equal parts sharp and playful.”
Thurman-Hawke, 19, will stumble on the secret of the city of Hawkins, changing her mundane world forever.
It’s won’t be the first time we’ve seen the former power couple’s child act: you may also have caught her as Jo in the BBC’s recent adaptation of Little Women.
We’ll have to wait awhile before we see her hit the small screen again, however, as the show’s third installment isn’t set to hit until 2019.
We can’t wait to see what she adds to the mix!

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
