Speaking with WhoWhatWear Australia recently, the 22-year-old Fosters actress opened up about her fashion sense, acting advice and more. Check it:
On exploring her home country: “I’m really lucky because I was just visiting home and I got to spend six weeks in Australia. I went to Uluru, which I’ve always wanted to visit. I realised that I spend so much time travelling around different countries, and hadn’t actually seen Australia. So I’m definitely going to make more of an effort to try and see all over Australia—it really was one of the most spectacular things I’ve ever done.”
On her career advice for aspiring actresses: “This may sound blunt, but if there’s anything else you can imagine doing, or that you’ll be happy doing, do that first, because this is really hard, and you have to really, really, really love it for it to be worth it. The lifestyle is a huge sacrifice, and if you love your work, love getting up early and you’re excited by the idea of a day on set, then it’s totally worth sacrificing everything else.”
On her personal style: “My aesthetic is important to me. I like feeling good in what I’m wearing and I like feeling like a part of me is expressed through my aesthetic. As far as labels are concerned—not so much. I’m not really too concerned about what people think of my clothes, I just want to feel good when wearing them.”

The 22-year-old Fosters actress kept it casual for a night out with friends, just a week after the season finale of her Freeform show.
“That was an interesting scene that we shot, with Brandon saying ‘Let’s do it, let’s tell them.’ He’s almost irking her on, but he’s not,” Maia shared with Zap2It about the duo’s relationship in the series. “He’s angry and frustrated that she keeps bringing it up, and she’s frustrated that it’s still something that she’s feeling.”
She continued, “We definitely see that come to a head, especially because their relationship is so similar to Romeo & Juliet and star-crossed lovers. Now seeing how that has influenced his art and his play, she’s almost seeing his words come out of Matt’s mouth. It’s really intense for her.”
Maia added, “They’re on a journey of letting each other go and accepting the family as the priority, but it’s a process and it takes time. They’re going to slip up occasionally, and have annoying conversations where it’s one step forward, two steps back. They’re just going to have to keep on keeping on.”
In “Under Water”, after Callie (Maia Mitchell) and Jude discover Jack is being abused by other boys in his group foster home, they turn to foster care advocate Justina (Kelli Williams) to get him help.
Meanwhile, Jesus (Noah Centineo) attempts to get to know Gabe at work even as Nick urges him to tell Gabe the truth about who he is, and Mariana (Cierra Ramirez) is surprised when Nick asks her out.
