6 Things to Know About The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel's Rachel Brosnahan
Rachel Brosnahan has gone from small-scale actress to a household name — and with several awards and critically acclaimed television shows under her belt, we can assume that this is the mere beginning. The actress won an Emmy in 2018 for her hilarious, charming role in The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, and is now nominated for another Emmy. Rachel has been on the scene for a while now, nabbing recurring roles in television shows and supporting roles in movies before getting her big break. See more facts about her ahead.
She Hails From the Badger State
The 27-year-old was born in Milwaukee, WI, on December 15, 1990.
She's Related to One of the Biggest Names in Fashion
Brosnahan is the niece of the late famous fashion designer Kate Spade. "People around me have said that I've inherited little pieces of Katie's style. For example, I love a good shoe and a good bag, and I know that she was largely influenced by my grandmother, her mother, June," she said about her famous aunt.
Her Breakthrough Role Came When She Was Still in High School
Brosnahan was cast in her first-ever movie role — as Lisa in The Unborn — while she was still in high school! She went on to snag roles in television series like Gossip Girl, Grey's Anatomy, and The Good Wife throughout college. Talk about having a full plate, right?
She's Happily Taken
Rachel is in a relationship with The Magicians star Jason Ralph. The two first met in 2015 while working on the WGN series Manhattan and have been together ever since. Though they both wear bands on their ring fingers, they have never officially confirmed that they are married. That being said, they certainly aren't shy about showing off their love on the red carpet.
She Is a Total Star on the Rise
She already has a Golden Globe and an Emmy, and she boasts other ultraimpressive roles in titles such as House of Cards, Patriots Day, and The Finest Hours. Get excited, because you're probably going to be seeing a lot more of Rachel.
