From the Casting Brief:
[MAUREEN ROBINSON] Late 30s - 40s, the mom
An aerospace engineer with a fearsome intellect. A driven and demanding woman both in and outside her home.
It's Maureen who makes the decision to bring her family into space.
She wants her children to have a chance at a new life on a better world. Her endless optimism is infectious.
She’s convinced there is no problem that can’t be solved if you apply your mind to it.
