Max

Mikey Madison plays “Max,” Sam's magnetic oldest daughter who fluctuates between bratty teen and self-sufficient young woman.

Madison is quickly establishing herself as a highly sought-after young actress in film and television. She currently stars alongside Pamela Adlon in FX’s critically acclaimed series Better Things and recently co-starred in Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood opposite Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio and Margot Robbie.

Madison can also be seen in the feature film Nostalgia directed by Mark Pellington starring opposite Catherine Keener, in which she plays the lone survivor of a car accident that took the life of Keener’s character's daughter. Additionally, she co-starred in Monster alongside Jennifer Hudson, Nas and A$AP Rocky. The film, based on the bestselling novel by Walter Dean Myers, follows Steve Harmon, a 17-year-old honor student and aspiring filmmaker who prosecutors deem a “monster” after being charged with felony murder for a crime he says he did not commit.

Madison is a former equestrian who found success on the hunter/jumper circuit. She is based in Los Angeles.
