In an interview, Margaret Qualley revealed what was her greatest apprehension before turning in “Maid”, the new mini-series which is a hit on Netflix!
Launched on October 1, the mini-series Maid has since met with phenomenal success on Netflix, to the point of being approached to beat the record of views on the platform (for a mini-series) currently held by The Lady’s Game. .
From the autobiographical work by Stephanie Land, Maid follows the daily life of a young single mother who became a cleaning lady to meet her difficult ends of the month. It is the young actress Margaret Qualley (discovered in The Leftovers) who landed the main role of the miniseries. But for the latter, a condition was essential as she confided in our colleagues of Vanity Fair :
My biggest concern has been to be able to play the role of a mother credibly. So I moved closer to Reyla making sure she felt comfortable in my arms.
In order to create a link with Rylea Nevaeh Whittet, the young actress who plays her daughter in the series, Margaret Qualley did not hesitate to give of her person by multiplying the interactions with the girl before the shooting. By going shopping at the supermarket together for example, or by driving her regularly in her personal car, a routine which allowed the two actresses to get to know each other better and even to develop a common passion for singing.
The mini-series Maid can be discovered now exclusively on Netflix.
