5 Reasons Why Elisabeth Moss Is Our Favourite Actor Right Now

Haven’t heard of Elisabeth Moss yet? She’s the American actor dominating our screens in some of 2017’s best TV series – The Handmaid’s Tale, Top of the Lake and Mad Men to name a few, and she isn’t stopping there… The Square, her latest movie role (and winner of the prestigious Palme d’Or award at Cannes Film Festival) comes out this October. Still not convinced? Here’s five reasons why she’s our favourite actor right now…

1. She’s the leading star in The Handmaids Tale

Well I’m in a little bit of shock!! 13 nominations is absolutely insane. I woke up to a gif from my publicist Erica of a shirtless Anthony Rizzo from the Cubs and knew it was good news (because a shirtless Rizzo is always good news) but 13 is blowing my mind! I’m so intensely proud of my cast and crew who put their blood, sweat and tears (literally) into this show. This is not a solo sport and each and every one of them is responsible for helping make something we could be proud of. And a special shout out to my executive producing partners, showrunner Bruce Miller and EP Warren Littlefield. Our triangle of collaboration and trust has been a gift to me and I love you both. Nolite te bastardes Carborundorum bitches. #handmaidstale
