Played by Olivia Colman
Maggie is Carl’s wife, and has a busy life, balancing the needs of the two teenage children and her job. She is strong, stoical, kind and happily married to Carl, her college sweetheart. Over the years together they have fallen into a comfortable routine of affectionate banter. She knows her husband can become disenchanted with the daily grind and lifts his spirits with wit and warmth. She is fond of Carl’s little foibles. They are a team; as parents and a couple.
