Tuba Career

After toiling in semi-obscurity for nearly a decade, Betty Gilpin has received back-to-back Emmy nominations for her performance on Netflix’s “GLOW,” which returns Friday for its third season. Credit Caroline Tompkins for The New York Times.

As for what comes after the life-altering experience of “GLOW” — what will define her next persona — [Betty] Gilpin doesn’t know, but she has a hunch. “It feels like I’m in this room that I didn’t know existed, and there are all these things I ever wanted,” she said. “There’s still one more little locked box that I’m not quite sure what’s in there.”

“But honestly,” she added slyly. “I think it’s a tuba career.”
