Maya Erskine


Maya Erskine plays the iconic female lead in Amazon’s MR. AND MRS. SMITH opposite Donald Glover. The series, which is a remake of the 2005 film of the same name, received incredible reviews.

She also co-starred and co-created the brilliant Emmy nominated series PEN15 for Hulu. During its first season, the series won the 2019 Gotham Award for Breakthrough Series and Erskine, along with co-creator and co-lead Anna Konkle, was nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Writing in a Comedy Series. The duo also received WGA Award nominations for New Series and Comedy Series and a Critics Choice Award nomination for Best Comedy Series. In its second season, PEN15 earned an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Comedy Series and a Peabody Award nomination.

Maya also voices the lead character ‘Mizu’ in Netflix’s critically acclaimed show BLUE EYE SAMURAI, which Rolling Stone called a “gory and gorgeous animated series.”

She is currently developing the international bestselling novel The Perfect Nanny as a limited series for HBO, in which she is set to star alongside Nicole Kidman in addition to serving as creator and writer.
