"I've been so fortunate in what is hopefully a fairly young career to have played a number of three-dimensional strong women [in my career]," the 32-year-old exclusively told Morning Honey at the Prime Video's fifth season premiere, which occurred in New York City on Tuesday, April 11. "It feels like the norm for me, but I recognize from the outside how impactful it is because there's still a need to see three-dimensional, flawed, ambitious and sometimes ugly — in the emotional sense — women out there doing their thing. We need more of those stories."
She added, "This is not necessarily one of those things, but we need more stories about ordinary women just as much as we need stories about extraordinary women. It's cool because we're part of a wave of change that's building in our industry."
As the cast gets ready to say goodbye to their characters for one last time, the brunette beauty reflected on what she'll miss most about the series, which stars a slew of stars including Tony Shalhoub, Alex Borstein, Marin Hinkle, Michael Zegen, Kevin Pollak, Caroline Aaron, Alfie Fuller, Reid Scott and Jason Ralph.
"It's bittersweet. I'm excited for fans to see how we wrap up everyone's stories because it's not just Midge's — and it's and not just Midge's and Susie's. I think everyone has a bit of a surprise ending, and I'm excited to see how fans respond,” she said.
"The hardest thing was moving just a couple of weeks after we wrapped into this play, The Sign in Sidney Brustein's Window, that I was doing at BAM," Brosnahan told People of moving onto another project so quickly. "I realized how much, physically, [Midge] was a part of me that I didn't realize it's hard to let go of that fast-paced dialogue."
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel will debut the first three episodes of its fifth and final season on Friday, April 14, on Prime Video.
