DeadlineElisabeth Moss is well known as an Emmy-winning actress and force in several hit series going back toThe West Wing and most notably including Mad Men The Handmaid’s Tale along with limited series successes such as Top of the Lake.
Her film work includes acclaimed performances in Her Smell, Shirley, The Squareandand upcoming in Wes Anderson Cannes Competition entry The French Dispatch, among many others. But she isn’t content to be just onscreen, she also is becoming a force offscreen as well by producing several of her projects and now also directing.
She made her debut in the director’s chair helming three episodes of this season’s The Handmaid’s Tale, and is taking it even further by stepping behind the camera for an episode of her upcoming AppleTV+ seriesThe Shining Girls. Moss is always fun to talk to and joins me today for this week’s edition of my Deadline video series headtopics.com
Behind The Lens where we talk in depth about her decision to become a multiple threat in the business, and in particular finally deciding to add directing to her credits onThe Handmaid’s Tale,the series for which she has already won a couple of Emmys for acting and producing, and which continues strong into its fourth season with some new twists and turns to shake things up. We discuss the challenges involved, particularly the sad fact that she only got a day and a half into her directorial debut when Covid shut down production. She had months to prepare to shoot the rest of that episode giving her prep time that rivals that of legends like Stanley Kubrick(!) Joking aside she’s serious about this phase of her career and has definite ideas of how to do it. She is also working on that new Apple series, and as an actress, producer, and director is finding all sorts of new paths for her career to take. She also tells me who her filmmaking inspirations are so to watch our conversation and go ‘behind the lens’ with Elisabeth Moss just click on the link above.
