A veteran of the Broadway stage, American actress Elizabeth Marvel has found increasing success in Hollywood; with various major roles in movies like "True Grit" and "The Bourne Legacy," and TV series such as "House of Cards" and "The Newsroom."
In an interview with the New York Times, Marvel explained how her portrayals on film and stage contrasts with most of her peers.
“In some ways I missed my era,” she said, “because I’m big and messy and have big feelings and take up space on a stage, rather than being diminutive and childlike in my woman-ness.” She continued, “I have to tell you, I feel proud of staking that kind of claim as a modern actress.”
Marvel will next be seen in the sixth season of "Homeland" as Elizabeth Keane, a junior senator from New York elected president of the United States. Said series star Claire Danes of the character: "She’s challenging norms and is a little threatening for that reason."
