I've known Marianna Palka for a pretty long time as she used to date Jason Ritter for like fifteen years or something (I could have the actual amount of years wrong there, so please forgive me, but it was a really long time). Marianna is awesome and a fierce director and actor in her own right. She's also a Sundance staple and I've loved getting to chat with her over the years.
I've been so thrilled to see her on GLOW - I'm always thrilled when good things happen to good people and this is no exception. She's fantastic on the show and I was stoked to get to see her at a Q&A last night with a lot of the cast.
