If you are in the middle of bingeing Alien things Right now you are not alone, and you may have noticed a new face hanging around Hawkins, Indiana. It would be Maya Hawke, who joins the show for her third season as Robin.

Maya may be relatively new to this whole acting thing, but the 20-year-old New York City Indian has been around the entertainment industry literally since birth. Here's all you need to know about her.

She plays Robin on Alien things.

Before the series hit Netflix, it was quite unclear what Robin's role in the show would be, but she could share some sentences with WWD. "There are three sentences I can say," she said. Robin is "an alternative girl who is equally sharp and playful. Bored with her everyday day job, she just wants some excitement in her life … and gets more than what she negotiated when she reveals a dark secret in Hawkins." She works with Steve, Joe Keyer's character.

While you may think that having known parents gives you a serious leg in the industry, she said that it also makes things really challenging. "It does [for] more expectations and so do people doubt your intentions and your ability and your place, but the truth is that you only have to work hard and hopefully you will learn your place, "she said WWD.

"And there are all sorts of ways it will help you get a foot in the door, but you will have to get out the door if you, when you are in, suck."

She initially did not want to go into the spectacle.

She acted like all the games and musically she could grow up, she said, but she wasn't sure she wanted to make it into her career.

"I resisted it a little, because it was the family business, until I realized that it made me most happy and that was what I was best at," she said.

But she decided to go to Juilliard, and one year she landed her first professional role Small women.

She is in the film's film.

She plays "Flower Child" in Quentin Tarantinos Once in Hollywood. You will want to see it, trust me.

Maybe she has a boyfriend.

Maya uploads many pictures with Gus Wenner, the son of Jann Wenner, founder of Rolling stones.

Not to put her on blast or anything, but if they are a couple they are sweet together.
