Interview by Paul Salfen
Paul Salfen talks to real-life mother and daughter Andie MacDowell and Margaret Qualley about working together in Netflix’s MAID as onscreen mother and daughter.
“Maid follows the story of Alex, a single mother who turns to housecleaning to – barely – make ends meet as she escapes an abusive relationship and overcomes homelessness to create a better life for her daughter, Maddy.
“Seen through the emotional yet humorous lens of a desperate but determined woman, this series is a raw and inspiring exploration of a mother’s resilience.”
It is based on a true story, Stephanie Land’s memoir Maid: Hard Work, Low Pay and a Mother’s Will to Survive.
