Mia Goth reveals her experience playing the role of Maxine Minx in MaXXXine

In an interview with Time magazine, Mia Goth opened up about playing the roles of Maxine Minx and Pearl in Ti's West Horror X film trilogy. Goth revealed that playing these "fearless" characters (Pearl and Maxine) has been the most "creatively fulfilling experience" of her life.

She said that one of many reasons it’s been such a "gift" that she is "blessed" to play these roles is because the characters are brave and make their own choices, noting that they are "fearless and have such agency.”

The latest sequel, MaXXXine, follows Maxine, the lone survivor of a brutal Texas ranch attack from the original movie (X ), who moves to Los Angeles in the 1980s to pursue her Hollywood dreams. As she navigates the industry, Maxine confronts her past while a night stalker terrorizes the town.
