Four Nine sits down with Elisabeth Moss as she answers '49 questions'
Elisabeth Moss has become a household name in recent years; you'll recognize her from her award-winning stint on HBO's adaption of Margaret Atwood's dystopian classic, The Handmaid's Tale, as well as her turn as 60's "girl boss" Peggy Olson in Mad Men. Now, the actress has set her sights on the big screen with her role in this year's hotly-anticipated thriller, The Invisible Man.
Shedding light on abusive relationships through a sci-fi lens, The Invisible Man revolves around a tech mogul who stages his own suicide and uses his experience as a scientist to become invisible and terrorize his ex-girlfriend (Moss).
We sat down with Elisabeth to chat about The Invisible Man, as well as everything from her biggest fear (deep water) to her favourite celeb in her contacts (Tiffany Haddish, though Reese Witherspoon is a close second). Oh, and if you were curious, she's planning on playing a villainous "a**hole in her next film - and about time!
Watch '49 Questions' with Elisabeth Moss below:
As to what makes The Invisible Man different to other horrors, Elisabeth told Four Nine that it’s “the fact that it is grounded in reality, the fact that it is something that is real.”
“There’s a real villain, a real man who we can recognise, who we can see,” she continues. “And their relationship is real, and that’s scary.”
Finally, in true Four Nine style, we had to ask about some of Elisabeth's favourite women. Aside from Oprah - who she'd trade lives with "because Oprah" - she cites her top three acting influences as Meryl Streep, Marion Cotillard and Maggie Smith.
Great choices, we say.
