Maia Mitchell Says Moving to America Changed Her Entire Career

Maia Mitchell might’ve never moved to the United States if it hadn’t been for her passion for acting.

In a brand new interview, the 24-year-old actress revealed that she would’ve been happy to stay in her native Australia, however, everything changed because of one audition.

“America was never my plan,” Maia shared. “I would have been very happy to work in Australia. I am so close to my family and my friends back home are still my friends. I never thought of America.”

After auditioning for an American TV show that was shooting at Warner Bros. in Australia, she started auditioning online for roles that would be shot in the country and from there, landed a job her senior year of high school.

“I feel lucky that since I moved to the United States, I have had this consistent family base with the cast and crew,” Maia added. “I spend my days with people I have known for years and have seen me in my darkest days.”
