The Dead Poets Society actor, 48, shared a short clip on Sunday, July 7, of Maya in character as Robin and encouraged his followers to check out his talented daughter’s work.

“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,” Ethan wrote on Instagram. “Some of you may know her music, some may not. But Ladies & Gentleman, get to know MAYA HAWKE. She’s the real thing. #StrangerThings.”
