Nick Robinson and Chloë Grace Moretz Discuss the Weight of Getting Heavy

While Squid Game has been blowing minds, Netflix dropped another series that is bound to break hearts. Maid, adapted from Stephanie Land’s bestselling memoir of the same name, is a meticulous and agonizing look at one woman’s (Margaret Qualley) struggle on several fronts, from trying to eke out a living for her and daughter, to extracting herself from an abusive relationship with the father of her child. That character, Sean, could have easily come across as a cookie-cutter villain, but as embodied by Nick Robinson, with an assist from showrunner Molly Smith Metzler​​’s nuanced and sensitive take on the source material, Sean is instead portrayed as complicated and contradictory, a man whose own troubled background explains his behavior without excusing it. Robinson, who made his acting debut at age 11, made an impression last year as a student caught in an abusive relationship in the FX limited series A Teacher, and with this role has cemented himself as an actor capable of evoking trauma and its murky aftermath. Another former child actor who’s entered a more mature phase of her career is Chloë Grace Moretz, who recently spoke to Robinson about challenging expectations and avoiding comfort zones.
