Meet Alex Borstein: Susie the Manager on The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Streaming TV Series


The hit comedy series The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is now in its second season, with all 10 episodes now running on Amazon Prime Video as of December 5.

Two hilarious episodes in the middle of the series take the Maisel and Weissman families to the Catskills for a two month stay.

The lead and supporting actors are all marvelous, but a surprise standout is Alex Borstein, who won an Emmy for her role of Susie Meyerson, the tough-talking manager of budding comedian Miriam (Midge) Maisel.

Borstein is not a newcomer to TV comedy. Her credits include Gilmore Girls, MadTV, Getting On, and Family Guy.

In interviews, she talks about growing up as the daughter of a Holocaust survivor, her life with two children in Barcelona, and her comfort in playing a role as part of an extended Jewish family.

Here is a video from IMDB reviewing her career so far.

Enjoy!
