Maya Hawke has told how her famous parents – Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman – did not want her to have ‘bit parts’ in their film when she shared her desire to act.
The Little Women actress, 23, admitted that they were ‘cautious’ about her acting dreams and wanted to make sure she had the ‘backbone’ to pursue her career herself.
Maya told the Guardian: ‘They wanted to make sure I had a strong enough backbone, my own passion for it and work ethic. They did not want to run me along every red carpet or have me do bit-parts in their movies. ‘

The screen star, who also played a role in Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, said Ethan and Uma had reservations about her choice.
She said: ‘They were on guard against the public life side of acting and the difficulties of it. They also tried to protect me from falling into acting.
But when they became confident of her strong desire to play, they gave her their approval and full support.

Maya said, ‘When I was old enough, and it was clear that they were my choices, they were very supportive.’
Maya’s big acting break came when she starred as Jo March in the miniseries Little Women, which aired in 2017.
Two years later, she had a role in Once Upon A Time and has since been at the center of rumors that she will repeat her mother’s role in Tarantino’s Kill Bill Vol 3.

Quentin revealed in July that he would like to cast Maya in a potential third Kill Bill movie.
The 58-year-old filmmaker appeared in Tuesday’s episode of The Joe Rogan Experience and talked about his ideas for a third feature in the highly stylized action throwback series.
He is currently planning to end his career after completing the production of his upcoming tenth film and is currently considering potential projects to tackle.

Tarantino originally told the podcast’s powerhouse about his ideas for the potential setup of the project, which would take place after 2004’s Kill Bill Volume 2.
“I think it’s just revisiting the characters twenty years later and just imagining that the bride and her daughter, BB, have 20 years of peace, and then that peace is shattered,” he remarked.
The filmmaker went on to note that the idea of getting Maya to work with his mother was particularly exciting to him.
He continued: ‘And now The Bride and BB are on the run and just the thought of being able to cast Uma [Thurman] and cast her daughter Maya [Hawke] it would be damn exciting. ‘

The Oscar-winning director then gave Rogan some more plot details about the direction of the feature and teased the return of several old characters.
‘Elle Driver is still out there, Sophie Fatale had her arm cut off, but she’s still out there. They all got Bill’s money. In fact, Gogo had a twin sister, Shiaki, and then her twin sister could show up, “he said.
Tarantino has been publicly teasing Kill Bill Volume 3 for years since the release of the second feature, though he has chosen to work on other projects.
Plot details about the feature remain speculative, though he has discussed bringing the daughter of Vernita Green back, played by Vivica A. Fox, who was killed during the first feature.
The actress talked about her choice for the role during a sit-down with Express and expressed that her ideal choice was qualified to take on the role for a very specific reason.
She said, ‘I think they should go after the young girl who did it, Ambrosia Kelley … If not, if I could have my dream daughter? Zendaya. She is tall, she has the long legs; she would kick a **! ‘
The development of the potential feature was hampered for nearly two decades by a controversy over the involvement of Kill Bill’s lead role in a car accident during the production of the second film.
The performer was set to drive a vehicle to a particular scene and felt uncomfortable doing so before the instructor assured her that the safety protocols on the set would keep her safe during filming.

Long-term development: Work on a potential third Kill Bill feature has been hampered over the past few years due to a controversy surrounding a destructive car accident with Thurman that took place during production
However, Thurman was seriously injured when her car hit a tree and eventually sustained several injuries, including a concussion and knee injury.
The entire incident was captured on camera, and when the actress asked for the footage, she claims she was informed by Miramax that it would only be given to her if she relinquished her rights to pursue claims related to the crash, which she denied.
The Pulp Fiction actress and Tarantino remained on unfriendly terms for years afterwards and only reunite after the company released the footage after several allegations of sexual abuse leveled against Harvey Weinstein.
During a 2018 interview with Deadline, the filmmaker talked about the events surrounding the crash and expressed that the incident still brought him shame almost twenty years after it took place.
‘I told her it would be safe. And it was not. I was wrong. I did not force her into the car. She got into it because she trusted me. And she believed in me … it’s one of the biggest regrets of my life, ‘he remarked.
The Reservoir Dogs director also elaborated on his feelings, noting that the crash and its follow-ups had added a downside to two of his most successful projects.
‘We held hands in this film all the way through its entire march. We managed it side by side, and one of the things that Uma and I regret is that this stains Kill Bill’s legacy, Tarantino said.
