In addition to being an "oddball character actress," Greta Lee is also a pool shark

The Russian Doll and The Morning Show star played a lot of pool trying to impress Koreatown boys as a teenager in Los Angeles. She also learned to code-switch attending the prestigious Harvard-Westlake School. "That ability to inhabit different roles has served her career well, in supporting roles in shows such as Inside Amy Schumer, High Maintenance and Girls," says The New York Times' Alexis Soloski. "She has a particular talent for satirizing privilege and entitlement." But Lee is trying to shift the perception of her by adapting he essay collection Minor Feelings: An Asian American Reckoning for series television.

Greta Lee Steals the Show (Again) in ‘Russian Doll’ Season 2

Russian Doll is Natasha Lyonne‘s show, through and through. She’s the co-creator, head writer, star, and sometimes director of the series, which bends genres as blithely as it twists the laws of physics. Lyonne’s character, Nadia Vulvokov, takes everything that is cool and unique about Lyonne and blows it up like a supernova. Without Lyonne, the Netflix show would simply not exist, nor would it have a defining voice. That said, there is one Russian Doll supporting player who continues to manage to pull attention whenever she enters a scene. In Season 1, Greta Lee‘s Maxine managed to turn the phrase,...

How Russian Doll's Greta Lee Approached Her Expanded Season 2 Role

Greta Lee's Maxine in "Russian Doll" is a truly unique character that gives Lee the chance to really run wild. In season 1, she was the host of Nadia's (Natasha Lyonne) birthday party, a bash that would unintentionally grow tiresome for Nadia as she relived it again and again through a "Groundhog Day"-style time loop. In season 2, Nadia recruits her for a trip to Hungary to investigate her family's roots, and Maxine turns out to be a real treat to travel with. With more screen time for her absurdly chaotic character, Lee had to figure out how to make Maxine's kookiness work in whole new situations. In an interview with AV Club, Lee explained the method to portraying Maxine's madness in season 2.

Greta Lee Gets Uncomfortable

The actress Greta Lee swore on her grave that she would never, ever return to her hometown of La Cañada Flintridge, a Southern California suburb known colloquially as La Cañada. Growing up at the foothills of the Verduro Mountains, just nudging the San Gabriel Valley to the southeast, Lee was “one of those L.A. kids who never felt comfortable there,” she tells me during a recent video call. While in the throes of classic teenage angst and rebellion, Lee would drive to a parking lot by the La Cañada country club and smoke Camel Lights, gazing into the expanse of greater Los Angeles, dreaming about the moment she could move to New York City, where she’d pursue her dreams of acting—and, no doubt, finally be accepted for who she was. “I just felt like, ‘I gotta get out of here, I am never coming back,’” she recalls. “‘Fuck this town, this is a shit town.’”

Greta Lee: "I feel so lucky to be a part of a show where people are moving towards truth and discomfort"

"This still feels truly radical," says Greta Lee, Zooming me from her home in New York with a genuinely joyful grin. "I have just climbed out of bed and now here we are." Interviews like this have, since the pandemic, become something of an everyday occurrence for me, I respond. But, of course, Lee didn't have quite the same experience during the height of Covid-19. "I mean, my husband was stuck at home working from a closet, while I got to be on the Sony stages sitting next to Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon 10 hours a day," she shrugs, apologetically, clearly still feeling slight residual guilt at nabbing a dream gig working with her "idols" during lockdown.
