Dec. 3 (UPI) -- Rachel Brosnahan was surprised by the mom-shaming her character experiences in The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.
In The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Midge (Brosnahan) is a housewife and mother turned stand-up comedian. Brosnahan said she was taken aback by reaction to Midge pursuing a career.
"It's been so surprising," the actress said. "I'm not a mom, so it's not something I've ever experienced personally, but I've found myself being offended on behalf of a fictional character.
"The number of times that I've been asked whether or not I think Midge is a terrible mom... I got asked in an interview whether or not I thought she loved her children," she shared. "I'm getting a little taste of the kind of mom-shaming that goes on in the real world."
Season 3 opens with Midge going on tour, which causes tension with her family. Midge's parents, Abe (Shalhoub) and Rose (Marin Hinkle), only recently learned she is a comic.
"That's caused kind of a ripple effect through the family," Brosnahan said. "It's a little tense between us when we start Season 3."
