‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ is a very special story.
Reed Morano
I’ll sit down for ‘Stranger Things’ or ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ – or a really good documentary.
Russell Howard
There are a lot of challenges Ofglen faces as a Handmaid. She has to live her life for the Commander of her home, Glen, and it is really a bleak life. She has no rights, and her main job is to keep him and the rest of the people in his house happy.
Alexis Bledel
I like science fiction. Arthur C. Clarke, Philip K. Dick and Vonnegut, and I really like Margaret Atwood, ‘The Handmaid’s Tale.’ And you know, so much of science fiction has to do with predicting what’s to come, so I think that’s really interesting.
Conor Oberst
You could tell ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ from a male point of view. People have mistakenly felt that the women are oppressed, but power tends to organise itself in a pyramid. I could pick a male narrator from somewhere in that pyramid. It would interesting.
Margaret Atwood
There was a movie that was made about ‘The Handmaid’s Tale.’ And I never watched it on purpose because I didn’t want to… I just didn’t want to know.
Reed Morano
‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ is a human story, and women’s rights are human rights, and it’s all about equality, but at the end of the day, it’s not equal.
Yvonne Strahovski
‘Handmaid’s’ is the most profound television I’ve had the privilege to be a part of.
O. T. Fagbenle
I have a playlist for every project that I do. I made one for ‘Handmaid’ before I got the job.
Reed Morano
None of the atrocities in ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ are pure fiction. Everything Margaret wrote was something that has happened somewhere in the world to human beings.
Madeline Brewer
‘Meadowland’ was the reason I got ‘The Handmaid’s Tale,’ and probably my experience in cinematography helped. Everything was like a stepping stone to the next thing.
Reed Morano
What makes ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ so terrifying is that everything that happens in it is plausible.
Naomi Alderman
‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ is not a book or show advocating enslaving women or creating a theocracy. It’s not glorifying that. It’s talking about what happens if that happens.
Laeta Kalogridis
Music had always been the handmaid of the Roman liturgy.
Richard Morris
‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ breaks my heart. It’s a show based on the book written in the ’80s by Margaret Atwood – who is a spectacular talent. That book is a work of art.
Madeline Brewer
I’d been to an Orthodox Jewish primary school where, every morning, the boys said, ‘Thank you God for not making me a woman.’ If you put that together with ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ in your head, something will eventually go fizz! Boom!
Naomi Alderman
I read it in college as an assignment. I didn’t think about it at the time. But when I heard there was a ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ pilot, I freaked out.
Reed Morano
‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ takes place in the near future, a dystopian future, and is based on the book by Margaret Atwood. It takes place in what was formerly part of the United States at a period of time when society has been taken over by a totalitarian theocracy. It’s about the women who live in subjugation.
Alexis Bledel
When I first read the scenes I got to audition, I just could tell there was obviously something there. The writing speaks for itself, but also it’s just the fact that ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ is such an amazing story. I had never read the book before I auditioned.
Madeline Brewer
I really hope that men read ‘The Power’ and watch ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ and read ‘The Handmaid’s Tale.’

It’s funny because I was looking back on my Instagram,, and I saw that I had a bunch of feminist posts but that was all before ‘Handmaid’s Tale.’
O. T. Fagbenle
I knew from reading about Sarah Grimke that she’d been given a handmaid to be her personal slave and that her name was Hetty. The only other fact I knew about her was that Sarah taught her to read: They conspired in a very subversive way, by locking the door and screening the keyhole.
