Elisabeth Moss on The Handmaid’s Tale

Known for her roles in the hit series “Mad Men” and “The West Wing”, the six time Emmy-nominated actress is staring in a much-anticipated new drama – “The Handmaid’s Tale.” At the premiere, Elisabeth was beaming with admiration for her character, Offred. “For me, it’s essentially a story of a woman that will not give up in what she believes in and I think that that’s a beautiful thing and it’s something that we need right now.” As the original story was first published in 1985, it is now being met with 2017 resistance. Moss explains that there’s more to the story that meets the eye. “I think there’s more of it [hope] in the show than in the book. As you continue to watch the season, I actually think that it’s quite uplifting and really hopeful and positive. There is a resistance!”
