Rachel Brosnahan’s biographyRachel Brosnahan is a young TV series star, who became popular after the release of the first episodes of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel comedy-drama series, which became the favorite of viewers who appreciate both the idea of the project and its incarnation: Rachel’s character is an ordinary American housewife of the ’50s, who tries to break into stand-up and succeeds.
Early yearsRachel Elizabeth Brosnahan was born on December 15, 1990, in Milwaukee, in the family of Earl and Carol. The actress's childhood passed in Highland Park, Illinois, where the Brosnahan family moved in 1995. The future actress’s father worked in a children's publishing house. Rachel was the first child in the family, later she had younger brothers and a sister.
First rolesAfter graduating from the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University Rachel went to Hollywood but returned to New York eight months later. The actress said in an interview that it was difficult for her to live in a city where every housewife tries to look like she is a podium star and would not want to spend her life in the eternal talk about fashion and yoga.
Best worksRachel first became popular after the release of the House of Cards project. The young actress looked organically in the role of a former prostitute, for whom beauty was a curse, not a gift, and managed to transfer the whole depth of her heroine’s despair and loneliness.
Rachel's next success was her participation in TV projects The Blacklist, where James Spader played the main violin, and the Manhattan, where she starred alongside Olivia Williams and Harry Lloyd.
The actress’s partner was John Magaro. Miley Cyrus, who plays the role of a sexual-political activist cursing the capitalists and pouring quotes from Karl Marx, also participated in the project.
Late in autumn 2017, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel television show began, which brought Rachel her main but, sure, not last victory so far. The role of modest housewife Midge, who decided to go against the traditions and change her life that should pass near the stove, changed Rachel’s life too, suddenly making the talented but, in general, quite common American actress a world star.
