Rachel Brosnahan is opening up about filming the final scene of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and how it hit home for the entire cast.

On the 2023 Emmy Awards red carpet, Brosnahan, 33, shared that filming the final episode of the Amazon Prime Video series felt "really cathartic."

"We shot it last," she told E! News of her character Miriam Maisel's emotional appearance on the show's fictional talk show. "It was the last week of shooting the entire cast was there we got to really close this incredible chapter all together as a team and as a family."

She continued, "I mean we couldn’t even look at each other. Michael [Zegen] and I couldn’t look at each other, Alex [Borstein] and I couldn’t look at each other, we were all just kind of like on the verge of tears, but it made for a really powerful moment for the ending of the show."
