Stranger Things star is actually the daughter of Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman and she looks just like them

Those who binge-watched the latest season of Stranger Things will have been introduced to the show's newest character, Robin.

It turns out many are only just clicking on to the fact that the newcomer, who works alongside Steve at the ice-cream store Scoops Ahoy in the show, is played by actress Maya Hawke … hmm, now where have we heard that last name before?

That’s right - Maya Hawke is the daughter of A-listers Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman!

In fact, the 20-year-old looks just like her famous parents, with many pointing out how much she resembles a young Uma Thurman, who was a teenager in the 80s - which is funny considering Stranger Things 3 is set in 1985.

Proud dad, Ethan – who separated from Uma in 2005 after seven years of marriage – took to Instagram to congratulate his daughter on her part in Stranger Things, calling her "the real thing".

Alongside a video post of Maya, Ethan wrote: "Some of you may have missed her in last year’s BBC production of Little Women. Some of you may have missed her work at Juilliard. I know many missed out on numerous high school productions — heck I even missed a few and I’m her father. Some of you may know her music, some may not. But Ladies & Gentleman, get to know MAYA HAWKE. She’s the real thing."

So sweet!

Stranger Things 3 is available to stream on Netflix now.
