Maya Kazan (born November 24, 1986) is an American stage, TV and film actress and director. She is known for playing Caroline in Frances Ha, Eleanor Gallinger on The Knick and Mabel Thompson on Boardwalk Empire. She is the daughter of screenwriters Nicholas Kazan and Robin Swicord. She is the granddaughter of film director Elia Kazan and playwright Molly Kazan. Maya is the younger sister of actress Zoe Kazan.
In 2012, Kazan starred as Lucrece in Pierre Corneille's The Liar, written by David Ives at the Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey.
In 2013, she played the role of Laura in Michael Rabe's play The Future Is Not What It Was at the Walkerspace theater in New York.
In 2014, she took on the role of the adult Perdita in William Shakespeare's The Winter's Tale at the Old Globe Theater. In a February 2014 Los Angeles Times review, critic Charles McNulty wrote: "Kazan doesn't yet possess a strong stage voice, but she has everything else that's needed to make us fall in love with Perdita — natural radiance, unassuming intelligence and gentleness."
In 2014, Kazan landed a recurring role as Eleanor Gallinger in Steven Soderbergh's The Knick on Cinemax alongside co-stars Clive Owen, Eve Hewson and Grainger Hines. That same year, she landed another recurring role on HBO's Boardwalk Empire playing Mabel Thompson, the wife of a young Nucky Thompson, in a string of flashbacks throughout the series' fifth and final season.
