"You are one of the bravest women I have ever met.."

A new arrival to Wentworth for season two, Maxine is a transgender woman who, despite having undergone gender reassignment surgery and wearing a wig and make-up, looks unambiguously male, often experiencing transmisogyny by inmates and officers. Her name was Max before she transitioned. Maxine would exit the series with a transfer to Barnhurst to be closer to hospital for her cancer treatment.

Time At WentworthEdit

Having lived for many years as a gay man, Maxine was determined to begin her transition to be a female. At the age of 39 and after many months of psychological counselling, Maxine began her hormonal therapy. 18 months later having formed a relationship with Gary, she made the decision to undergo reassignment surgery.

Maxine’s height and powerful physical build doesn't go unnoticed to Franky Doyle who wants Maxine on her crew. Maxine wants nothing to do with Franky, or in fact, anyone. However keeping a low profile at Wentworth is near impossible. She saved Bea Smith's life by punching the person that tried to kill Bea. Maxine tries to help Bea bring a shiv in. Bea gives Maxine a beanie after she has her wig confiscated after attempting to escape the prison.

Maxine is Bea's main offsider as top dog, acting as her hench as well as a friend and moral support. She is nurturing towards other inmates, including Bea and Boomer.

Maxine gets breast cancer and has surgery to get her breasts removed. She had decided to hold the fort for Bea while she was in the slot and the delay in treatment meant they had to go with the more aggressive option.

Maxine was transferred to Barnhurst to be closer to the hospital and is last seen being escorted out of the yard by officer Linda Miles.
