‘Moon Knight’ Star Ethan Hawke’s Acting Failed to Impress His Teen Daughter Till Now

Ethan Hawke is an incredibly versatile actor. He has brought many wildly different characters to life, never failing to deliver a top-notch performance. Despite a lifetime of impressive acting, his role in the Marvel series Moon Night has thrust him into the spotlight. In fact, it’s the first role that’s even impressed his teenage daughter — and, as parents know, that’s just about the toughest audience to please.

Actor Ethan Hawke made his big-screen debut at 15 years old in the sci-fi film Explorers. However, his big break came a few years later in the 1989 blockbuster hit, Dead Poets Society

From that point, Hawke starred in several memorable films, including White Fang and Reality Bites. He earned his first Academy Award nomination for the crime thriller Training Day in 2002. Hawke also earned a nod for his unique role in Boyhood, filmed periodically throughout a decade of his life. 

Ethan Hawke’s ‘Moon Knight’ performance is turning heads — even his daughter is impressed

Moon Knight has audiences and critics raving due to its phenomenal storyline, exciting action, and incredible casting. Oscar Isaac stars as the titular character, who has dissociative identity disorder. No matter which personality Isaac is portraying, he nails it every time. 

But every good superhero story would be nothing without an equally entertaining supervillain. Enter Hawke, who plays the soft-spoken cult leader, Arthur Harrow. The entire series really is fun, and the way Hawke completely embraces his character is captivating. 

He’s even managed to impress the harshest critic out there — his 13-year-old daughter, Clementine. In a recent interview with People, Ethan Hawke shared his daughter’s reaction to the Moon Knight trailer. “She watched it on her phone. She’s like, ‘Dad; this looks really good.’ I mean, her eyes just went [wide]; she couldn’t believe it. ‘That’s what the kids at school are talking about.’ So this is the first one that [impressed] her.”

Ethan Hawke is the proud dad of four awesome kids. He has two children with his current wife — Clementine and Indiana. He also has two children from his former marriage to actor Uma Thurman — Maya and Levon. His oldest daughter followed in her famous parents’ footsteps and became an actor as well. 

Maya Hawke became instantly recognizable after her recent role in the beloved sci-fi series Stranger Things. She plays Robin Buckley, the smart, sarcastic teen behind the counter at Scoops Ahoy. Hawke joined the cast in season 3, and fans instantly adored the witty banter between Robin and Steve Harrington. 

Hawke returns to the role in season 4 of Stranger Things. She said that “things will take a ‘scary’ turn” for Robin this season. Netflix will release the new season in two parts, with the first five episodes out on May 27, 2022, and the final four episodes on July 1.
