Kathryn Hahn feels like “a moral and actual disaster” compared with the kind-hearted rabbi she plays on Amazon’s “Transparent.”
The prolific character actress, who’s up for a supporting Emmy this September for her role as Rabbi Raquel in the comedy, praised her character’s flaws and showrunner Jill Soloway (whom she affectionately calls by her last name) for bringing the character to life.
“It’s hard to quit those Pfeffermans, for sure,” Hahn said during a recent visit to The Times video studio. “Even Raquel is a pretty solid human being — a decent human. Her head is screwed on pretty straight and it’s hard [to quit].”
