Marin Hinkle, who plays matriarch Rose Weissman on Amazon Prime’s Emmy-winning “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” wasn’t always on top of the world. In fact, before booking “Maisel” opposite Rachel Brosnahan, Alex Borstein, and Tony Shalhoub, the longtime stage and screen actor hadn’t worked for over a year and was even close to losing her health insurance. But thanks to creators Amy Sherman-Palladino and Daniel Palladino (and a scene-stealing, globetrotting character arc on Season 2), Hinkle was nominated for her first Emmy Award in 2019. She recently sat with Backstage to dish on it all and share some of her best advice for working actors. Watch her best bits in the highlight reel above!
