  • Maxine Conway

    Played by Socratis Otto

    Inmate number: 984738

    Charge: Assault causing bodily harm

    Sentence: 3 years

    Served:  1 year

    Maxine is a male-to-female transsexual who, despite having undergone gender reassignment surgery and wearing a wig and make-up, looks unambiguously male.

    Devastated after being rejected by her boyfriend following her surgery, Maxine responds by stabbing him resulting in time in Wentworth. That's one way to end up behind bars.

    Her height and powerful physical build doesn’t go unnoticed to Franky in season 2 who initially wants Maxine on her crew but her allegiance in seasons 3 and 4 shifts to Bea.

    Maxine is not a naturally violent person, however she will act to protect the vulnerable if she feels they are being unfairly treated.  Boomer experiences a softer side of Maxine and an unlikely friendship bond grows stronger in season 4.
