Is Maya Stern, a former army Captain based on a real person?

No, Maya Stern, the character portrayed by Michelle Keegan in the Netflix series “Fool Me Once,” is not based on a real person. Harlan Coben, who created the series, got the idea for the character from a chance meeting he had on a United Service Organizations (USO) tour. Maya Stern may have drawn from the experiences of military pilots, but her story and character growth are completely made up for the show’s fictional plot.

Harlan Coben says that the idea for Maya’s character came from a real-life event that happened on a United Service Organizations (USO) trip. Coben met a woman who had been in the Gulf War and was one of the first women to fly a combat chopper. Coben found her experiences, like dealing with PTSD and the difficulties of returning to normal life, interesting, so she chose to base a character on her.
Coben talks about how different the British version is, pointing out that the difference in class between Michelle Keegan’s character and Joanna Lumley’s performance as Joe’s mother gives the story more meaning. Coben says that the creative mixing of American and British elements gives the show its unique draw and sets it apart from his other Netflix adaptations.
Michelle Keegan, who plays Maya, gives the character a lot of life by drawing on her own experiences as a military pilot. Coben’s choice to base Maya Stern’s problems on those of a combat helicopter pilot gives the story a more realistic feel and makes Stern an interesting and believable character.
