Maya is a very driven, poised, kind and witty girl. Since she first brought down the house at age 6 as “Maya the Joke Teller” in her school talent show she has known that acting is what she wants to do with her life. She’s fearless and focused and works extremely hard to be the best she can be, no matter the size of the role. Very intelligent and observant, with a near-photographic memory, she can memorize lines with ease and mentally and emotionally inhabit a character to deliver the most expressive performance possible. Well-traveled and a great listener, she picks up accents quickly. While Maya is very studious, she’s also fun-loving, athletic and creative; she’s on her school volleyball team, was recently elected Spirit Leader and is an accomplished baker, artist, and writer.
Having visited over 45 countries with her family, Maya is accustomed to stepping outside her comfort zone and enthusiastically adapting to new situations but also has the ability to be extremely diligent, organized and directed as her straight-A academic record shows.
Maya is the only student at her school, which has an excellent performance program, to have been accepted into its annual talent show for seven consecutive years, performing original, one-person skits. While her professional experience is still to come, she has studied acting for seven years and has received rave reviews from her teachers.
Maya is excited and honored to be represented by Gray Talent Group and looks forward to the next phase of her career. Expect maximum effort, flexibility and intelligent nuance from this well-rounded, gifted young performer.
