Actress Harriet Herbig-Matten (“Bibi and Tina”) has, at the dawn of her 20s, already had to have some experiences with toxic masculinity. “I have also been in contact with such men very often in my private life,” the Munich actress told the German press agency. Toxic masculinity generally means patterns of behavior marked by domination and sometimes violence towards women.

In Amazon’s new series “Maxton Hall,” Herbig-Matten plays Ruby, a private school student who is bullied by her wealthy classmate James (Damian Hardung) – but falls in love with him anyway.

“In the series, there were many scenes where James had power over Ruby. The feeling I felt then was still with me long after filming. It was hard to shake.”

The six-part coming-of-age series, based on the “Save Me” novels by Mona Kasten, will be broadcast from Thursday on Amazon Prime Video.
