The 25-year-old actress has been dropping hints about leaving her beloved villain who everyone adored.
The third season is now available on Netflix, and it’s generating a lot of buzz. People are already speculating about the next season, while others are still trying to figure out what happened in the previous one. Maeve’s fans, on the other hand, maybe left waiting for a new season if Emma Mackey decides to leave the program.
The 25-year-old actress has been hinting as such that it is time to bid adieu to her badass character that everyone fell in love with. Maeve has been with the program since 2019, and could it be her final appearance?
Mackey spoke to Hunger about the significance of her strong character in the show’s audience. Her performance in the part even earned her a first-time Bafta nomination. “It’s a gift to act like that sort of person,’ she added. ‘I thought it was a great show,’ she says. ‘It really resonated with me.
I loved how personal it felt because that’s something that doesn’t happen often in movies, and again, just because it didn’t happen very much before to me.’ In the episode, she said that her real persona is “a lot less sassy” than her on-screen character, and she even confessed to sharing conflicted feelings about the teen drama series in which she portrays a teenager while approaching her late twenties.
It’s a difficult thing for me to understand. It’s rare for a series to get better with each season, but Season 2 of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is just that. It’s never been so much about the concept, as it has been this year, and the cast is incredible. I genuinely care about them all, and I formed lifelong friendships.
‘We’ve kind of grown-up together,’ Mackey added. ‘And it’s kind of bittersweet because I can’t be 17 for the rest of my life.’ Despite all of the praise and accolades, Maeve has a sell-by date for Dinah.
After that, she may work towards more challenging roles in future endeavors; though some would argue that her looks are getting worse. She has her eyes set on playing bigger cinematic females, and she’s already on a mission to do so.
Mel’s first project will be a TV series based on Agatha Christie’s novel The Adventure of the Blue Train. She is set to play female figures in history as part of the same, which adapts Agatha Christie’s novel and stars Mel as Victorian novelist Emily Bronte.
She is taking on the roles because they are a part of her personal feminist mission. ‘We don’t learn enough about women in history,’ she continued.
‘Many times, while reading history books, the only information and statistics available on [women] are who they married and how many kids they had or didn’t have.’ That’s a shame – you’re erasing entire identities and lives from the historical record.
“So much of your job is to ask people about who they were or what their lives were like,’ she continues. It’s wonderful to be able to reinvent and reimagine someone’s life from scratch.”
It’s possible that she isn’t playing Maeve again, but we can expect her to play equally strong female roles in her future projects, which is something we can rely on.
