Uma Thurman Congratulates Daughter Maya Hawke on 'Stranger Things' Role
'Stranger Things' Kids Are All Grown Up at Season 3's Star-Studded World Premiere

"Congratulations beloved @maya_hawke" Thurman wrote in the caption.

Uma Thurman is praising her daughter Maya Hawke and her blossoming acting career.

On Sunday, the "Kill Bill" star shared a sweet post congratulating Maya on her role in the latest season of "Stranger Things."

"My victorious loving mermaid daughter," Thurman captioned a photo of the 21-year-old on a mermaid pool float. "A weekend of triumph on Stranger Things. Congratulations beloved @maya_hawke #strangerthings #netflix #motherlylove #mayahawke."

Maya, 21, is the eldest child of Thurman and actor Ethan Hawke. The couple, who were married from 1998 to 2005, also share son, Levon, 17.

On Friday, Hawke shared a post of his own, where he also praised his daughter's breakout performance.

"Some of you may have missed her in last year's BBC production of Little Women," Hawke began in the caption. "Some of you may have missed her work at Juilliard. I know many missed out on numerous high school productions — heck I even missed a few and I'm her father."

"Some of you may know her music, some may not," he continued. But Ladies & Gentleman, get to know MAYA HAWKE. She's the real thing. #StrangerThings"

In "Stranger Things 3," Maya plays Robin, a Hawkins resident who works at the Starcourt Mall with Steve Harrington (Joe Keery). Like many characters, Robin gets entangled with the secrets of the town and helps our favorite young heroes try and save the world ... again.

Fans have praised Maya's role in the third season of the Netflix series, which hit the streaming service this past Thursday. As Hawke pointed out, before "Stranger Things," Maya starred in the 2017 BBC version of "Little Women."

The young actress will next be seen in the highly-anticipated "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood," directed by Quentin Tarantino, who of course directed Thurman in the "Kill Bill" films and "Pulp Fiction."
