What has Kate Siegel said about her marriage?

Kate previously opened up to Collider about meeting her filmmaker husband for the first time. "Mike looked at me and he kinda sat there for a second, and he was like: 'Can you just do one more?' And I was like 'Yeah, yeah'. And I was waiting for the notes he was going to give me. And he looked at me and he waited until I stopped nodding, and he said, 'Can you just do one just for you?'

"And I was taken aback because I didn't know what that meant. I had forgotten. And something in me was brave enough to take the amount of time, which felt like an eternity, was probably two minutes, and figure out what it was that I wanted, and my acting changed forever on that day."
