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.
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.

I have a playlist for every project that I do. I made one for ‘Handmaid’ before I got the job.

‘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.
What makes ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ so terrifying is that everything that happens in it is plausible.
‘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.

‘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.
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!

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.
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.
