We want to satisfy your curiosity about the details of Maeve’s professional and personal life.
Stella Maeve Bio/Ethnicity
Maeve was born as Stella Maeve Johnston on November 14, 1989, in Nyack, New York. Through social media, Maeve told her fans about her ethnic background that she is a Native American from “Blackfoot and Cherokee”.
Although it is known that Stella grew up in Nyack, New York, not much is known about her upbringing or how her passion for entertainment was awakened. However, she made her feature film debut in Hollywood in 2005 in a comedy-drama called Transamerica. In the same year, she starred in a short film called Liminality and also had guest appearances in Law & Order: Criminal Intent, Law & Order, and Law & Order: Special Unit for Victims in 2006.
Stella quickly built up her filmography and worked on both the small and the big screen. She appeared in the comedy Harold in 2008, and in the same year, she had a temporary recurring role in the hit series Gossip Girl, in which she played the role of Emma Boardman in two episodes.
Maeve starred alongside Ethan Hawke and Wesley Snipes in Antoine Fuka’s crime thriller Brooklyn’s Finest, which was an average success, earning $36.4 million from a $17 million budget. In 2010, Stella starred in The Runaways, another film with an ensemble cast of Twilight veterans Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning. Although it was well-received by the critics, The Runaways was a flop, earning only $4.7 million with a budget of $10 million.
On the small screen, Stella appeared again in House and had guest roles in Bones (2010) and Grey’s Anatomy (2012). Starting in 2014, Maeve played the role of Nadia Decotis in Chicago P.D. The character became her longest recurring role at the time, having had 18 appearances before her character was killed in 2015.
Her role as Julia Wicker in The Magicians, which premiered on December 16, 2015, became her first lead role in a television series. Also in 2015, Maeve performed her own stunts in the thriller movie Flipped.
When the role of an actress involves a romantic mating or, as it is most often called, a date on the screen, it arouses the fans’ curiosity about her real romantic life, and so it is with Stella Maeve.
Although she has never been married, interestingly enough Maeve has had romances with several stars in the past. In 2013 she had an affair with the Day & Night hitmaker Kid Cudi (real name: Scott Mescudi). As a couple, they visited the premiere of Red 2 in Los Angeles in 2013 and gave the fans a hot PDA as a present.
At the 13th annual Stuart House charity event by John Varvatos, hosted by Chrysler with the children’s tent of Hasbro Studios, Maeve shared a kiss with Jordan Rock, brother of Chris Rock. That was in April 2016, but their relationship seemed to be just a fling.
So we snuck into her Instagram page to see if there was a new man in her life, but we didn’t find one. Unfortunately, we can’t say for sure if she is in a relationship at that time and with whom. But she and her magician co-star, the Indian hero Arjun Gupta, would make a great couple.
