For most people Maia Mitchell is an Australian actress, for others, she is a singer-songwriter and singer in equal measure.

Maia Mitchell Bio (Age)
Maia Charlotte Mitchell was born on 18 August 1993 in Lismore, New South Wales, Australia. Her father, Alex Mitchell, is a taxi driver, while her mother, Jill Mitchell, who she considers her greatest musical inspiration, is a teacher. Maia has only one sibling, her younger brother Charlie Mitchell. She grew up with her brother in South Wales, where the family lives. The actress was trained at Trinity Catholic College in Lismore.
As a young girl, Maia Mitchell took dance lessons and was known at school for her active participation in stage productions. The enthusiastic girl later switched to local theatre productions. Her big breakthrough came in 2006 at the age of 12 when she was scouted by talent agencies. As a result, she got a role in a children’s series – Mortified, in which she was allowed to play Brittany Flume. But then the series only ran for a few months (June 30, 2006 – April 11, 2007).
Her appearance in Mortified earned her a role as Natasha Hamilton in another Australian TV series, Trapped, which was broadcast sometime between 2008 and 2009. In 2011 the young woman also played the same role in Castaway, the sequel to Trapped. Before that (2009) Maia appeared in an episode of the television series K-9, which focused on K-9, the robot dog. K-9 was an offshoot of Doctor Who, a popular British television series at the time.
Like most Australian actors, Jane soon gained entry into Hollywood because of her wonderful performances. Maia Mitchell played the role of Shaylee Michaels in 2 episodes of Jessie, a Disney Channel TV series. Her first film also came to the USA; in 2013 she played the role of McKenzie in an original Disney Channel film called Teen Beach Movie. In 2015, the actress also played the revenge role in the sequel Teen Beach 2.
From 2013 to the present, Lady Maia plays a leading role as Callie Adams Foster in the ABC Family drama series The Fosters. This series is scheduled to end after the currently running fifth season. However, there are talks about a spin-off in which she is supposed to be involved. So fingers crossed!
The Australian actress also played the role of Beatrice in the film After the Dark (2013), the role of Amy Calhoun in Hot Summer Nights (2017), and played the leading role of Angela in Never Going Back, which was released in 2018.
That’s not all, Maia has also taken on several narrative roles over the years. In 2013 she sang a role as herself in an episode of Phineas and Ferb. In an episode of Jake and the Neverland Pirates, she spoke as Wendy Darling. And from 2016 to the present, the Aussie is the voice of Jasiri in the children’s animation The Lion Guard.
As an entertainer, Maia plays guitar remarkably well (since her childhood) and writes her own songs. However, she insists that writing and singing songs are a private matter for her. The actress has said that music is something she would thrive on if she were to record them officially. While Maia receives the credits for the soundtrack albums on Teen Beach Movie and Teen Beach 2, she also appeared on some singles with Ross Lynch.
Boyfriend – Her Relationship With Rudy Manusco
In 2012 Maia dated the American actor Ramy Youssef, but the relationship ended in 2014, and in 2015 she started dating Rudy Manusco, an American musician. Their relationship does not seem to be a secret, as they have been seen with each other countless times. They also make Youtube videos together.
On December 11, 2017, they released their first official single “Sirens”. In March this year (2018), Rudy released another song in collaboration with Maia. This time soft pop music called Magic. Rudy described Maia as the perfect partner for his song and expressed that she had a daring spirit, which was reflected in the song and the video. We are certainly looking forward to more from this power couple.
