Who plays Max in Ginny & Georgia?

Sara Waisglass is the Canadian actor behind the "M" in MANG (Max, Abby, Nora and Ginny). The struggling friend group in Ginny & Georgia season 2 certainly provides drama, but it's hard to compete with leading lady Georgia Miller (Brianne Howey). 

When we're not caught up in the young mom's antics—"Who did Georgia kill in Ginny & Georgia?" is the main question on everyone's mind—we're back at school with Ginny and her clique, trying to make sense of what went wrong. Things seem to go haywire when Ginny falls for someone who's off-limits, a.k.a. Max's twin, Marcus. (Everyone's dying to know "Do Ginny and Marcus get back together?" You'll have to tune in to find out.) Can the quartet find its way back on solid ground?

Even if things start out shaky between the friends, Waisglass confessed to NYLON (opens in new tab) that she was pleased with the brother-sister interaction this season.

"Personally, what I'm most excited about, especially with Max, is her relationship with her brother [played by Felix Mallard]," she told the outlet. "You see that kind of shift and change. Obviously at the beginning she's like, "F*** you." As the season goes on, you'll see that she and him are always there for each other when they really need it, which is really beautiful."

Who plays Max in 'Ginny & Georgia'

Sara Waisglass landed the role of Max and does feel a strong connection to the Queen B of MANG...even if the character is being a little difficult.

"I feel like Maxine is me if I didn't have anxiety and if I drank 10 coffees a day," Waisglass joked to NYLON. "But we have the exact same heart. We love people fiercely and that's probably the thing that drew me to her the most."

Where is Sara Waisglass from?

The 24-year-old actor hails from Toronto, Canada. Her career began at age 7, when she booked the role of Jordy Cooper in Shaftesbury's Overruled. Now, she's pivoting towards screenwriting, according to IMDB (opens in new tab), and we can't wait to see where the adventure takes her. 

What movies and TV shows has Sara Waisglass been in? 

Waisglass has starred in shows like Degrassi, Suits and The Good Doctor and the 2020 film Tainted and 2008's Afterwards, to name just a few. She's currently in post-production for two projects, a thriller titled Cascade, which is about friends discovering  a crashed drug plane and Suze, which follows a single mother who has to console her daughter's boyfriend when she leaves for college, per IMDB. 

Are Max and Marcus twins in 'Ginny & Georgia'?

Yep, they're twins—and off-limits to friends. (Guess Ginny chose to ignore that memo!)

Why is Max mad at Abby in 'Ginny & Georgia'?

What did Abby do in Ginny & Georgia to cause tension? Why is there so much hostility? 

Abby (Katie Douglas) knew that Ginny (Antonia Gentry) had been unfaithful to her boyfriend and kissed Marcus. Although there was already some tension brewing between the two, this only made matters more uncomfortable...especially when Max discovers the text on her brother's phone.
