'The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel' season 2: Rachel Brosnahan, Michael Zegen reveal how they time traveled to 1950s New York
In an exclusive interview with Meaww, Rachel Brosnahan and Michael Zegen shared their insight into what's coming in season 2 of the hit show 'The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel'
The countdown for Amazon Prime Video's hit 'The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,' has begun. Season 2 of the series that bagged eight Emmys, picks up right where season 1 ends. "Season 1 followed Midge finding her voice, I have lost mine," said Rachel Brosnahan, who plays Mrs. Miriam "Midge" Maisel, in a special event celebration.
The 27-year-old Golden Globe winner looked stunning in a black jumpsuit and smokey eyes, but made it quite obvious that she isn't necessarily in her best health. As she lost her voice time and again, she retold her sentence. Explaining season 2 a bit more, she added: "Season 2 looks like the ripple effect of how that (finding her voice) affects everyone around her," she added in a husky tone.
Her experience on set, along with her co-star Michael Zegen has been a dreamy one. "By the time we walk on the set, we feel like we have time-traveled. We hardly have to do anything at all," said Brosnahan after thanking her "incredible costume designers and set designers including the 'brilliant' writers."
Zegen chimed in to add working on the sets often felt like "you're in a time machine," and "they" know what they are doing. Even the city of New York is its own character in a way. "(The city is in a) different time period and the sets are gorgeous. I mean, the whole show is visually stunning," he explained, adding "there's cars and costumes, I mean what is not there to like?"
The only thing to be liked more is the powerful Mrs. Maisel, who according to Brosnahan is "smart and sharp."
"She writes great jokes but she also has a lot of heart," she affirmed, losing her voice on the "heart" part. "A lot of heart in each one of these characters," she added further.
Zegen, who plays Mr. Joel Maisel added to the compliment: "She's so funny and witty and charming and yea, every episode is better than the last," he said of the upcoming season. "We get so excited for each new episode," the 39-year-old actor shared.
'The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel' first aired March 2017 and took home all the major awards including the Emmys and the Golden Globes. The series revolves around a housewife becoming a stand-up comedian in 1950s New York. The show comes from 'Gilmore Girls' creator Amy Sherman-Palladino.
Season 2 airs December 5 on Amazon Prime Video.
