Margaret Qualley stars in “Maid,” a new Netflix series about a single mother named Alex who leaves a violent relationship and supports herself by working as a maid.

In the series, which was filmed in Victoria, BC, Qualley’s bipolar mother is portrayed by her real mother, “Four Weddings and a Funeral” star Andie MacDowell, who discussed her role in “The Graham Norton Show”.

According to MacDowell, the Daily Mail reported, she was offered the job based on her daughter’s recommendation, but admitted it was a tough role to play.

“It was interesting that my daughter suggested me for the role, and at first I thought, My God, does she see me like that? Of course she does not, but it was a little scary! MacDowell continued.

“It was so fun, but so challenging for me because I have never played such a character before,” she added. “It was great to do something different and show people what I’m capable of.”
