Elisabeth Moss

Actress Elisabeth Moss wasted no time getting her career off the ground. Starting as a child actor, Moss graduated high school two years early. As a result of her unusually mature work ethic, Moss was rarely without a job. After working steadily in film and television for years, Moss landed her big break in 1999 when she was cast as Martin Sheen's daughter on "The West Wing" (NBC, 1999-2006). Moving from her supporting berth at the White House, Moss took on an even more high-profile role as 1960s-era secretary-turned-copywriter Peggy Olson on "Mad Men" (AMC, 2007-15), the critically acclaimed drama from "The Sopranos" (HBO, 1999-2007) writer-producer, Matthew Weiner. As that series continued, Peggy became one of its most important characters as a foil to and protégé of conflicted adman Don Draper (Jon Hamm), Even before "Mad Men" ended in 2015, Moss went on to strong work as the lead of Jane Campion's murder mystery "Top of the Lake" (Sundance 2013) and its sequel "Top of the Lake: China Girl" (Sundance 2017) before starring as Offred in the Emmy Award-winning drama "The Handmaid's Tale" (Hulu 2017- ). Poised and talented, Moss seemed ready for any acting challenge on the big or small screen.
