-This profile on Elisabeth Moss includes lots of interesting tidbits, including the fact she memorized The Handmaid’s Tale’s frequent voiceovers so she could repeat them in her head when shooting those scenes so that the words would match her expressions, and that she signed on to the show for 5-7 seasons (which is troubling).
