“The first scene we filmed together was our reunion scene — Mariana runs into her arms and I swear, I just melted,” Cierra told The Wrap. “To have Callie there is just everything to her. She’s that older, wiser person in her life that can help her make those decisions … it’s the person she needed most and she showed up.”
“I missed my Maia papaya more than you will ever imagine,” she added during a Q&A on Instagram story. “I was so happy that she came back for a visit. Especially for a time that Mariana needed her the most. You know that Callie was probably the one person on Earth that she wanted to be with during all of this. It was super special to have her back.”
In another interview, series showrunner Joanna Johnson dished on Maia‘s return and why now was the right time to bring her character back.
“Well, when [she] left, there was always the open door. She said she would come back and do episodes. I think Maia just wanted to go back to Australia for a little while. She missed her family, and I think she also just wanted to be open to pursue other things,” Joanna told Deadline. “But she always said, ‘I would love to come back when I’m available, if you guys want me.’ And we’re like, ‘Well, of course you’re welcome anytime.’ So, schedule wise and everything, it worked out great. I didn’t have this in mind when she left, because we just didn’t know when she would be able and ready to come back. She’s always going to be a part of this show. She loves it. It feels like coming home to her.”
