The Veil | Elisabeth Moss on a mission

We would never have believed that an actress like Elisabeth Moss, after playing Peggy Olson in Mad Men and June Osborne in The Handmaid’s Tale, dreamed of playing the role of a spy in an action series. And yet it is the case. “It’s something I’ve always wanted to do,” insists the actress in an interview.

We’re talking about stunts with Elisabeth Moss because she plays in The Veilthe new offering from the creator of Peaky Blinders, Steven Knight. Miniseries from the American network FX that Disney+ has been relaying for several days, this spy thriller paints the portrait of Imogen Salter (Elisabeth Moss), an agent of the British foreign intelligence service on a mission, who must discover the secret of Adilah (Yumna Marwan), an enigmatic woman whom she must escort from Istanbul to London, via Paris. Hunted from all sides, they will have to find a way to work together to prevent a potential catastrophe.

“I knew I would have a lot of fun playing Imogen,” emphasizes Elisabeth Moss. As for working hours, I hadn’t really thought about it. Because there is always a lot of work behind everything I do. It’s normal ; I like challenges. And The Veil, it was quite one. I had to learn a lot of things, things I had never done before. »
