Hilty, 31, says she didn’t pay Monroe much mind until she read a biography on playwright Arthur Miller and discovered they had been married to each other. “Then I started getting into her life story because it is so fascinating,” says the theatrically trained actress, a native of Bellevue, Wash., who also starred in Broadway’s Wicked and 9 to 5: The Musical. “I like her almost childish behavior at times and how she just wanted to be loved. It is the core of what we all want.”
