Tackling the Odds: Elisabeth Moss Prefers a Dramatic Workday

NEW YORK ( Associated Press) — He navigated the 1960s ad agency Boys Club on “Mad Men,” led the charge against an authoritarian regime on “The Handmaid’s Tale” and made an outrageous appearance in the 2020 film “The Invisible Man.” fought against the comrade. Based on her career choices, it makes sense to seek out Elisabeth Moss if things go south.

“It’s a huge compliment,” Moss said recently of the notion that she’s desirable to have a fantasy foxhole. “With the characters I play, my intention has always been to show how badass an ordinary person can be. I want people to feel like, ‘Oh, I can be that person. I would do that.’ Or, ‘I hope I respond that way.’ I love the idea of ​​playing superheroes everyday because I think we all have a kind of superhero inside of us. ,

However, fighting the bad guy is not easy. In her new series “Shining Girls” for Apple TV+, Moss has his work cut out for him. She plays Kirby, a newspaper collector in 1990s Chicago who is haunted and taunted by a serial killer (Jamie Bell) named Harper, who is always ahead of his victims and officers. Part of what makes the show so entertaining to watch is that it finds it impossible to stop.

Moss, who is an executive producer on the series and also directed two episodes, said of Bell, “I know I’m probably biased, but I really think it’s the best thing ever. . He surprised us every day.”

Harper is so convinced that he approaches his victim with swagger. Moss says it’s the charisma that sells the character.

“Our intention was to find someone who wasn’t mustache-twisting, who wasn’t your classic villain. It’s romantic. This approach is far more creepy than just playing something straight-up scary.”

Bell says he was drawn to the project because it gave him the opportunity to play someone different from his previous roles (“Billy Elliot”, “Rocketman”) and to work with Moss, whom he considered “working today.” Best Actress”.

For Moss, scripts made it impossible for him to say no.

“I wasn’t looking for another TV role, but it was one of those things where I was like, ‘I don’t think I can’t do this.’ I try to find things that I feel like I can’t.”

The real challenge, says Moss, was the disorientation of filming a series that constantly shifts its reality. Harper hurts Kirby so much that she has wandered about in time and is always playing catch-up in her life.

“I definitely had to remind myself of what I knew and didn’t know in the story at the time. It was almost 100 times more complicated to shoot it out of sequence than anything I’ve done so far. “

At the end of a work day Moss opts to watch lighter fare, “I don’t come home from filming and watch ultra-serious stuff. I don’t think it would be a good idea.” But don’t expect Moss to sign up for a rom-com or straight-up comedy anytime soon.

“As an actor and a director, I am very much interested in drama. I enjoy doing drama more.”
