Italian broadcaster RAI has made two high-profile acquisitions from European production, distribution and sales powerhouse Studiocanal: Three seasons of “Esther’s Notebooks” and Seasons 1 and 2 of “The Adventures of Paddington.”

“The Adventures of Paddington” is the latest iteration of the global IP phenomenon whose first season was a critical and ratings hit in territories around the world, scoring two Daytime Emmy Awards for Outstanding Preschool Animated Series and Outstanding Writing Team for a Preschool Animated Program. Maintaining the spirit of the Studiocanal box office smash hit films, the animated series delivers new narratives in 11-minute episodes focusing on themes such as family, curiosity and treating others with respect.

More from Variety

John Foster and James Lamont handle screenwriting duties on the series, which is produced by David Heyman’s celebrated production house Heyday Films, Studiocanal, Copyrights Group and with participation of M6. The series currently airs on Nickelodeon in several territories internationally and was acquired by Shanghai Senyu Media in China in March of this year.

“’The Adventures of Paddington’ 1 and 2 are heart-warming animation series which take the lead from Michael Bond’s original books,” said Studiocanal senior VP of sales and production financing Beatriz Campos. “While at the outset both series appear very different, they each deliver a unique take on life as seen through innocent and curious eyes and we are sure that they will have strong appeal to young viewers throughout Italy.”

“Esther’s Notebooks” is the serialized adaptation of the award-winning and critically acclaimed books from comic artist and filmmaker Riad Sattouf (“The French Kisses,” “Jackie in the Kingdom of Women”), which follows ten-year-old Esther through her daily life. Witty and clever, the girl’s unique point of view is expressed through innocent and often overly-honest takes on the world around her.

The show was created and written by Sattouf with Mathias Varin, and is a Canal Plus, Folimage, Les Films du Futur and Les Compagnons du Cinema co-production.

“We are delighted to see these entertaining animation series travel to free TV in Italy,” said Campos.

The Harry Potter series is perhaps the best known and most widely adored film franchise of all time and has super-fans by the millions.

If there’s one thing that Potterheads love it’s all the details from behind the scenes of the films, including finding out every little detail about the personal and private lives of the Harry Potter cast.

However, even the biggest boy wizard fan will probably have no idea that three of the film series’ most iconic stars were actually caught up in a heart-breaking love-triangle behind the scenes.

Kenneth, who Emma married in 1989, starred as hapless Defence Against the Dark Art teacher Gilderoy Lockhart in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.

Despite being known as one of Hollywood’s ultimate couples, in 1995, Emma and Kenneth announced their separation after Kenneth reportedly had an affair with another Hollywood legend.

The legend in question? Fellow Harry Potter actress Helena Bonham Carter.

Helena played major antagonist Bellatrix Lestrange in a number of highest grossing Potter films. Kenneth had a public relationship with Helena, although the pair later split in 1999.

Since then, Emma has spoken up about the heartbreak she dealt with after Kenneth’s reported affair.

According to Glamour magazine, Emma said she based the heartbreak of her Love Actually character on her real life experience.

“That scene where my character is standing by the bed crying is so well known because it’s something everyone’s been through,” the actor said.

“I had my heart very badly broken by Ken. So I knew what it was like to find the necklace that wasn’t meant for me.

“Well it wasn’t exactly that, but we’ve all been through it.”

Emma has reportedly forgiven Helena – she told the Sunday Times she has “made her peace” with Helena and described her as a “wonderful woman”.

“You can’t hold on to anything like that,” Emma said.

“It’s pointless. I haven’t got the energy for it.”

Bill Murray has just officially joined Tilda Swinton as part of the cast of Wes Anderson‘s new Spain-set film, per a report from Variety. Plot details for the new film are currently unknown, but rumors have been going around that it will be a love story of sorts. Production on the new movie will begin in August of this year, a month before Anderson’s The French Dispatch is even released theatrically. Swinton joined the currently untitled film back in June, and it seems likely that more casting updates will be revealed shortly.

Murray and Anderson collaborate frequently, with Murray appearing in a total of eight of Anderson’s films, two of which are voice roles only. These films include Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums, The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, The Darjeeling Limited, Fantastic Mr. Fox, The Grand Budapest Hotel, Isle of Dogs, and the upcoming The French Dispatch, which also stars Swinton. The French Dispatch had its world premiere at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, where it received a 9-minute standing ovation. The film was originally set to premiere at the 2020 Cannes Film Festival before a July 24, 2020 release date, but was pulled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

RELATED: Wes Anderson’s Next Movie Will Begin Filming in Spain This Fall

Sets have already been built for the newest Wes Anderson film, which have been spotted around Chinchon, Spain. Despite the film reportedly not being a Western, the sets bear a resemblance to desert landscapes. The film was originally going to be shot in Rome, but the decision was made to switch to Spain earlier this year. Only time will tell what the actual plot of the movie will be, but Tilda Swinton was quoted as saying “it’s not about Spain.” On top of starring in The French Dispatch and this new Anderson outing, Murray can also be seen in Ghostbusters: Afterlife, which is set to be released theatrically in November of this year. Murray will also appear in The Now, an upcoming series directed by the Farrelly Brothers, which will release on the Roku Channel.

Anderson is having a very busy year, awaiting the release of the already critically lauded The French Dispatch, as well as gearing up to shoot his latest project. One should expect to start hearing a lot more information regarding the beloved auteur’s new film after the release of The French Dispatch. The movie is now scheduled to premiere theatrically this year on October 22 by Searchlight Pictures.

Screen Star of Tomorrow 2018 Koby Adom’s London-based production company DBK Studios has partnered with Sky Studios to make five short films, titled Unearthed Narratives, to help raise the profile of up-and-coming Black and diverse filmmakers in the UK.

The five filmmakers are Charlene Wango (who assisted Rapman while he directed his debut feature Blue Story), Edem Wornoo, Teniola Zara King, Jessica Magaye and Nikki Fagbemi. Actress Domenique Fragale, who starred in HBO’sThe Nevers, serves as an executive producer on the series which is being fully financed by Sky Studios. Adom, Dola Araoye and Danielle Goff are also on board as executive producers.

The cast across the series includes Blue Story’s Stephen Odubola, Top Boy actors Hope Ipoku and Malcolm Kamulete and Noughts + Crosses and Peep Show actor Paterson Joseph. The subject matters addressed in the shorts include living with sickle cell anaemia, caring for a parent, racism in 1950s England, middle-class hobbies in the black community and gang violence.

Creative control

London Film School graduate Adom initially founded DBK Studios in 2018, but it became a main focus at the beginning of the pandemic in 2020 after a Netflix job on which he was due to work was shut down.

“I started a production company on my own for the sake of ownership,” said Adom, whose directing credits include episodes of Netflix series Top Boy and BBC series Noughts + Crosses. “I wasn’t a big fan of how the business end of things happened as a creative. I didn’t feel we [as creatives] were considered for how important we were for coming up with the ideas. A few instances after making my short film Haircut traumatised me a bit. I packed in all the deals I was in conversation with and thought – I’m just going to start a production company.

“I had some horrific instances where I felt like my business acumen was disregarded. I went to certain production companies who said I had great ideas but didn’t want to commission me as a writer. They wanted to get other writers on board and have me as a contributor. [With the Sky Studios deal] I want to bring five new writer-directors and not only make cracking short films but also to teach them how to retain ownership in work. All five are executive producers on their short films.

Adom said his experience as a Black man coming up in the UK industry has also influenced his decision to start his own company.

”The reason I started DBK Studios is because this industry doesn’t favour Black and ethnic minorities enoughl,” he said. “The kind of decisions that have been made and normalised haven’t favoured me personally and I know it’s the same for a lot of my Black and ethnic peers. I come from an underprivileged background, I grew up around gang culture. Life as a Black man in the UK wasn’t set up for me to succeed.”

“We’re also hoping to start traineeships,” added Fragale, who connected with Adom after he put a message on Twitter looking for collaborators on DBK Studios. “We want to help bring people on through DBK Studios to spend time with the likes of writers, directors and location scouts, to help make connections. I didn’t have that and Koby didn’t have that – we were very much paving our own way. We want the next generation of filmmakers to have what we didn’t have.”

Adom, under the banner of DBK Studios, is also developing a feature film based on his 2018 short Haircut with Film4 and is working on a feature SE28, based on his experiences growing up in Thamesmead, south London.

Adom, under the banner of DBK Studios, is also developing a feature film based on his 2018 short Haircut with Film4 and is working on a feature SE28, based on his experiences growing up in Thamesmead, south London.

The owner of CryptoPunk 7610, known to some as financial services giant Visa, is launching a non-fungible token (NFT) support program to help artists get involved in the digital art space.

The payments provider is partnering with Micah Johnson – a former Major League Baseball player, turned NFT artist and the creator of “Aku” – an animated astronaut character.

Visa, with Johnson’s help, will choose a small group of artists through applications and then build a program to help them learn more about the crypto and blockchain industry.

Aku is already a big deal, having become the the first NFT to be optioned for a feature film and TV projects – by Anonymous Content and Permanent Content, connected to the film director Shawn Mendes.

Aku was released in February 2021 on Nifty Gateway and sold more than US$2 million in NFT tokens in less than 24 hours. “Aku Chapters” NFTs currently have a floor price of 0.54 ETH (about US$1,960) on OpenSea, and a highest last sale of 4.25 ETH (US$15,427).

“NFTs unlocked an opportunity for me to build a community of people interested in supporting my work – in a way that goes way beyond simply liking or sharing,” said Johnson.

“With guidance from the early crypto community, I’ve been able to build a small business around my crypto-native character, Aku, that can grow into a global media company rooted in driving value back to that same community that evangelised my work.”

The Johnson/Visa program will also build connections between the selected NFT creators and Visa’s network of payment partners.

“We’ll be sponsoring this small group and providing consultative services to navigate the world of both crypto and traditional payment infrastructure,” said Visa’s Head of Crypto, Cuy Sheffield. “We’ll also look to foster meaningful relationships between creators and Visa’s network of payment partners, who can help creators reach new audiences and grow their businesses.”

“I’m excited about the opportunity to work alongside and learn from a trusted brand like Visa,” added Johnson. “We want to arm creators with the resources they need to stay at the forefront of this revolution.”

Other big recent NFT moves: Coinbase, TikTok, Ripple

It seems Visa’s recent delve into NFT buying, which included the purchase of a CryptoPunk for US$150,000, was a precursor to the global financial services company’s further expansion into the sector with program’s such as the Johnson collab.

The news also comes on the back of crypto-exchange giant Coinbase’s announcement this week that it will be creating an NFT marketplace to rival the likes of OpenSea, Rarible and Nifty Gateway.

Meanwhile, as also recently reported by Stockhead, social media behemoth TikTok and XRP creator Ripple Labs have both got their own big non-fungible plans launching and brewing.

The animated series is currently in its seventh season and was recently renewed for an eighth season. In October 2020, it was confirmed that production on the film had already begun, with creators confirming that the artists and producers were collaborating remotely during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

(CNN) — At just 45 years old, actress and comedian Sarah Silverman has had a lifetime.

You know her although it might be difficult to identify on what account. Perhaps it is because of her comedic performances, in which she brings up taboo topics like rape and racism, which one comedian called “somewhat depraved.”

Or, maybe you can recognize her from her appearances on almost every comedy show that was relevant in the last two decades, from “Saturday Night Live” and “The Larry Sanders Show” to “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” “Mr. Show with Bob and David “and” Chapelle’s Show “. She even had her own central comedy show “The Sarah Silverman Program” from 2007 to 2010, which received an Emmy nomination.

In recent years she has shown her serious side through political activism and roles in independent films. She received a Screen Actors Guild Award nomination for the film “I Smile Back,” in which she plays a mother struggling with depression.

She has learned a thing or two from everything she has been through and has been passing on wisdom in her recent media appearances to promote her film. These are the rudimentary insights she has to offer about depression, body image, and the “vagina taxes” that women pay in comedy and other areas of society.

Look less in the mirror

Sure, you need to see yourself before you leave home, and many people can’t help but pay attention to their appearance to head to work. That doesn’t change the fact that looking in the mirror can cause anxiety for many.

Silverman projects this anxiety in a scene in “I Smile Back” in which she looks in the mirror and raises her arms to see what her breasts would look like in a higher position.

Despite repeated references to her “playful” beauty and slim figure in newspaper articles, Silverman told NPR’s Terry Gross that she still experiences insecurity about her body. To stay in line, she follows this brilliant advice from her therapist: Look less in the mirror.

“It really blew me away in the best way,” he said. “And I just thought, ‘oh, right.’

“I always see myself knowing that I’m going to have a certain degree of cognitive distortion … so I represent it in a bell curve. I sort of adjust what I’m seeing and I know it’s better than what I’m seeing, whether whether that’s true or not. “

Talk about taboo topics

Comedians often tell jokes that make people uncomfortable and controversial, as Silverman well knows. (Check out his appearance on “Late Night with Conan O’Brien” in 2001).

There have been other times when Silverman uses comedy to address social injustices and instances of inequality. In a viral video from 2014, he parodied the wage gap between men and women in the United States, referring to it as a “vagina tax.”

“Comedy has always played an important role in pop culture and in the way of looking at history. Sometimes it is more of a mirror of society and more of an honest reflection of history than a story itself,” he said. Silverman told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour.

For example, there was a time when the transgender community was rarely recognized, she said. What has changed over time is that people started talking about the community and their experiences, he said.

“If you look at things that were once taboo and now are no longer taboo, the change is that they became a topic of discussion,” he said.

“If you look at the transgender community, these people always existed, they just lived in personal hells where they couldn’t expose themselves,” she said. “What it took – and it still is – is that it just became part of a conversation and then it’s not so far-fetched anymore.”

… And depression is one of those themes

When it comes to dealing with depression and anxiety, Silverman likes to quote Mister Rogers, who once said, “Anything that can be mentioned can be handled.”

It’s something he learned over time to cope with depression, starting as a teenager in New Hampshire. She has several ways of describing depression and how it differs from pain or sadness. For her, it is an instantaneous “chemical change,” like when a “cloud covers the sun” or when a sudden flu occurs.

“My perspective on the world changed about three degrees, and everything I saw was different,” he told NPR’s “Fresh Air.” “I had been a very social person with best friends and the class clown. And all of a sudden all of that meant nothing. I didn’t see any reason … being with friends felt like a burden.”

Initially, he was prescribed four Xanax, four times a day. She said she found a new psychologist and eventually stabilized after tapering off her medication. She channels those experiences by playing her character, Laney, in “I Smile Back.”

“She really lives in total anxiety, in that state where we all fall sometime, ‘would it happen if …?'” She told Amanpour. “We tell each other horror stories and that is anxiety … and there is no room for anything else.”

However, treatment is a life-long process — even a commitment — of adjusting medication, if necessary, and finding the right person to talk to.

“We drive all kinds of cars before choosing one. Plan to visit 12 different therapists before choosing one. It’s important,” he told James Lipton, host of “Inside the Actor’s Studio.”

“People say I can’t afford therapy. Get a cheaper car … it’s important.”

You can’t experience highs without lows

Even if you take your medication and visit a therapist frequently, the mood swings never go away, Silverman said. But you learn to handle them.

Silverman began experiencing panic attacks as an adult after she began working as a screenwriter on “Saturday Night Live.”

“I remember thinking I wanted to go home to New Hampshire. … You just want to go home and you don’t want to do anything scary. Then I found a woman who recommended a pill called Klonopin that all it does is block seizures. It really saved my life, as I could go to work on ‘Saturday Night Live’ and survive each day while trying to figure this out, “he told NPR.

Silverman said she has been taking a low dose of Zoloft since 1994, what she calls a “godsend.” It doesn’t numb you, but it helps control panic.

“It was the perfect fit for me and I feel like I could live life,” he told NPR. “It wasn’t something where, I said something like, ‘I’m happy now.’ I’m so lucky to experience highs and lows. I think those lows are important. But I’m not totally paralyzed and, you know, that keeps me from just being paralyzed by full”.

It’s okay to tell girls jokes

When Silverman got her start in comedy, the men around her regarded Paula Poundstone as the exemplary female comedian, as any man could take her material and be just as funny, she told NPR.

“She’s not talking about tampons or that kind of thing,” he said. “And I really considered that to be very true. I just accepted things as they were and that that was great.”

Over time, he came to see the value of sharing his experiences. And he found an audience for it. “Comedy is talking about my own experience, and I’m a woman. And that’s my experience. Just because it’s not yours doesn’t invalidate it.”

Embrace the quiet moments

From comedian Gary Shandling, who gave Silverman a chance on his popular 1990 HBO sitcom “The Larry Sanders Show,” Silverman learned not to fear the quiet moment.

The context for Silverman was on stage, but it’s a skill that could be applied in everyday life.

“It really taught me to find comfort in quiet moments,” he told “Inside the Actor’s Studio.” “The moments between the jokes, the montages, the auction … can be as powerful and say as much as the same words.”

“It really blew me away in the best way,” he said. “And I just thought, ‘oh, right.’

“I always see myself knowing that I’m going to have a certain degree of cognitive distortion … so I represent it in a bell curve. I sort of adjust what I’m seeing and I know it’s better than what I’m seeing, whether whether that’s true or not. “

Talk about taboo topics

Comedians often tell jokes that make people uncomfortable and controversial, as Silverman well knows. (Check out his appearance on “Late Night with Conan O’Brien” in 2001).

There have been other times when Silverman uses comedy to address social injustices and instances of inequality. In a viral video from 2014, he parodied the wage gap between men and women in the United States, referring to it as a “vagina tax.”

“Comedy has always played an important role in pop culture and in the way of looking at history. Sometimes it is more of a mirror of society and more of an honest reflection of history than a story itself,” he said. Silverman told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour.

For example, there was a time when the transgender community was rarely recognized, she said. What has changed over time is that people started talking about the community and their experiences, he said.

“If you look at things that were once taboo and now are no longer taboo, the change is that they became a topic of discussion,” he said.

“If you look at the transgender community, these people always existed, they just lived in personal hells where they couldn’t expose themselves,” she said. “What it took – and it still is – is that it just became part of a conversation and then it’s not so far-fetched anymore.”

… And depression is one of those themes

When it comes to dealing with depression and anxiety, Silverman likes to quote Mister Rogers, who once said, “Anything that can be mentioned can be handled.”

It’s something he learned over time to cope with depression, starting as a teenager in New Hampshire. She has several ways of describing depression and how it differs from pain or sadness. For her, it is an instantaneous “chemical change,” like when a “cloud covers the sun” or when a sudden flu occurs.

“My perspective on the world changed about three degrees, and everything I saw was different,” he told NPR’s “Fresh Air.” “I had been a very social person with best friends and the class clown. And all of a sudden all of that meant nothing. I didn’t see any reason … being with friends felt like a burden.”

Initially, he was prescribed four Xanax, four times a day. She said she found a new psychologist and eventually stabilized after tapering off her medication. She channels those experiences by playing her character, Laney, in “I Smile Back.”

“She really lives in total anxiety, in that state where we all fall sometime, ‘would it happen if …?'” She told Amanpour. “We tell each other horror stories and that is anxiety … and there is no room for anything else.”

However, treatment is a life-long process — even a commitment — of adjusting medication, if necessary, and finding the right person to talk to.

“We drive all kinds of cars before choosing one. Plan to visit 12 different therapists before choosing one. It’s important,” he told James Lipton, host of “Inside the Actor’s Studio.”

“People say I can’t afford therapy. Get a cheaper car … it’s important.”

You can’t experience highs without lows

Even if you take your medication and visit a therapist frequently, the mood swings never go away, Silverman said. But you learn to handle them.

Silverman began experiencing panic attacks as an adult after she began working as a screenwriter on “Saturday Night Live.”

“I remember thinking I wanted to go home to New Hampshire. … You just want to go home and you don’t want to do anything scary. Then I found a woman who recommended a pill called Klonopin that all it does is block seizures. It really saved my life, as I could go to work on ‘Saturday Night Live’ and survive each day while trying to figure this out, “he told NPR.

Silverman said she has been taking a low dose of Zoloft since 1994, what she calls a “godsend.” It doesn’t numb you, but it helps control panic.

“It was the perfect fit for me and I feel like I could live life,” he told NPR. “It wasn’t something where, I said something like, ‘I’m happy now.’ I’m so lucky to experience highs and lows. I think those lows are important. But I’m not totally paralyzed and, you know, that keeps me from just being paralyzed by full”.

It’s okay to tell girls jokes

When Silverman got her start in comedy, the men around her regarded Paula Poundstone as the exemplary female comedian, as any man could take her material and be just as funny, she told NPR.

“She’s not talking about tampons or that kind of thing,” he said. “And I really considered that to be very true. I just accepted things as they were and that that was great.”

Over time, he came to see the value of sharing his experiences. And he found an audience for it. “Comedy is talking about my own experience, and I’m a woman. And that’s my experience. Just because it’s not yours doesn’t invalidate it.”

Embrace the quiet moments

From comedian Gary Shandling, who gave Silverman a chance on his popular 1990 HBO sitcom “The Larry Sanders Show,” Silverman learned not to fear the quiet moment.

The context for Silverman was on stage, but it’s a skill that could be applied in everyday life.

“It really taught me to find comfort in quiet moments,” he told “Inside the Actor’s Studio.” “The moments between the jokes, the montages, the auction … can be as powerful and say as much as the same words.”

Some years ago, a journalist noted about Elisabeth Moss: “She is excellent at portraying very reserved characters, with deep wounds, who repress their feelings.” The work you’ve done since then seems designed to prove that statement wrong. He took cocaine, had outbursts of rage and spilled blood in Her Smell (2018); he used a pair of scissors to draw a grimace on his own face in Nosotros (2019); he fought his way through the danger of stabbing and shooting in The Invisible Man (2020). And now Shirley arrives.

In a claustrophobic chamber piece, Moss is horror novelist Shirley Jackson, a grumpy antisocial agoraphobic. She saw a lot of herself in the writer. “I’m pretty lonely,” says the 38-year-old actress over a light green smoothie. “For me the quarantine was a breath of fresh air because I have no problem staying at home for very, very long periods of time; I have no problem not seeing anyone. And I bury myself at work. “

Moss speaks on Zoom from his home in New York. The actress has said that she keeps her awards on the shelves, but in the crowded rows behind her there are no signs of her two Golden Globes (for Top of the Lake and The Handmaid’s Tale), her Emmy (also for The story …) and the Screen Actors Guild for Mad Men.

Shirley marks the first time in a three-decade career that Moss has played a real-life person, though the story takes delightful lines regarding Jackson’s life. Erasing his four children and inventing an infatuation with a young married woman, he is more concerned with capturing the complex spirit of the writer than with sticking to the facts. In the film she is seen for the first time surrounded by dust and debris, deeply thrown into what her husband Stanley (Michael Stuhlbarg) calls one of her “shoots.” The arrival of new neighbors Fred (Logan Lerman) and Rose Nemser (Odessa Young), to whom Shirley is somehow attracted, breathes new life into her.

Moss considered the character liberating. “I think there is a lot of Shirley in us,” she says. “We tend to doubt whether to say certain things because we don’t want to sound screwed up and we don’t want to sound difficult, and we bite our tongues and even almost have to speak in a different way than men do. What I loved about Shirley is that she said exactly what she was thinking, what she had in mind, and she didn’t give a damn that she looked like a bitch. “

In one scene, trapped at a party she no longer wants to be in, Shirley spills red wine all over the homeowner’s couch just for the fun of it. “How many times did we want to do something like that?” Says Moss. “You just mean, ‘Fuck this party, I don’t want to talk to this weird guy who’s talking too close to me.’ We were all there ”.

If Moss sounds a bit misanthropic, his demeanor is the complete opposite. Plainly dressed, with her Zoom name declaring her as “Lizzie Moss,” she is energetic and conspiratorial, taking quick breaths of air and speaking as if she were always on the verge of laughing. He disdains the idea that acting has to be a grueling artistic process. “My work is terrific,” he says, taking a script from beside him and shaking it in front of the camera. “I have these scripts that are written and I have to simulate and imagine. It’s ridiculous work, and I make money on it and feel invigorated by it. I never felt that it was a dark place, I always felt it as something bright ”.

Not that the work you do can be described that way. The Handmaid’s Tale is so brutal in its portrayal of a misogynistic and totalitarian society that it gave a Telegraph critic an anxiety attack. Moss was going through the filming of the first season when Donald Trump was elected President of the United States, and suddenly the idea of ​​eliminating women’s rights did not seem so far-fetched. Just as Peggy Olson from Mad Men became a feminist icon – even those who did not see the series recognize the image of Peggy bragging at work, with sunglasses and a cigarette in her mouth -, Offred became a symbol of suffering and female survival.

It was never easy to be at the forefront of a feminist movement. The actress says it was “a mistake” to say in a public interview that the show was a human story and not a feminist story. As a member of the Church of Scientology – born in Los Angeles, the self-described “valley girl” was raised in that religion by her musician parents – she has had to defend herself against charges of hypocrisy. When a fan pointed out on Instagram that “both Gilead and Scientology believe that every outside source (the news) is wrong or evil,” Moss responded, “That is not really true of Scientology.” Your religion is one of the few things you don’t like to talk about in interviews. “I understand the fascination, but you have to have the right to privacy.”

Today, Moss has no problem framing her work through feminist lenses. He says that The Invisible Man, the horror movie in which a woman, Cecilia, escapes from her abusive partner only to be harassed by his invisible presence, was “a gigantic analogy” of abuse and toxic relationships. “The invisible man can be your ex-boyfriend, ex-friend, ex-boss, whatever it is that makes you feel threatened by any kind of cycle of abuse,” says the actress. “It’s what we wanted it to be. That feeling of ‘I have to get over this, I have to fight this presence that won’t go away, this trauma that won’t go away.’ It is the story we were trying to tell, like a Trojan Horse in the packaging of a horror movie ”.

You never actually see the abuse Cecilia is running from, but you don’t need it either. Every cringe, scream, and shudder betrays the depth of his character’s trauma. Although she is able to capture every subtlety, she is not that kind of actress with a single tear rolling down her cheek; his crying is with convulsions of his whole body. Countless women wrote to them after the premiere – one of the last major releases before the pandemic, which grossed $ 134 million at the box office – to tell them how identified they had felt with the story. “Friends who I did not know had gone through such an experience could appear to tell me that watching the movie had been cathartic,” he says. “I think we all have experiences in which we feel that we are drowned, that they take advantage of us or tell us that we are crazy to believe or feel something. That history of abuse is not something that has emerged in the last five years. It is not a car that just anyone gets on now. It is a story as old as time ”.

Moss feels a deep responsibility to tell women’s stories well; She has been playing complex female characters since she was a teenager, when she was one of the victims – along with Angelina Jolie and Winona Ryder – of Inocencia Interrupted, or as the sparkling daughter of the President in all seven seasons of The West Wing. “Women can be wonderful and have flaws, they can be good and bad and complicated; for me it’s all about telling an honest story, ”he says. “It is not about telling the story of someone perfect or that it is a moral lesson, just telling stories of women with honesty. That is the guiding principle. “

Then he points to his favorite line on Shirley: Stanley is questioning his wife’s fascination with a missing woman, a student whom he does not know but with whom he feels a bond. “And she says, ‘Don’t tell me I don’t know this girl,'” says Moss. “I feel like this is very true for many of us. We all have common experience as women, either in feeling alone or in feeling that you cannot talk about something, or feeling that if you do, they will tell you that you are crazy, or that you are hysterical or difficult. We have that common experience, and I loved that line of dialogue because I loved the idea of ​​her looking at this man and saying, ‘Don’t tell me I don’t know what it feels like. You have no idea how I feel. ‘

That is why she feels so relieved since, thanks to the #MeToo movement, women are increasingly sharing their experiences with each other. “I’ve had more conversations in the last few years than I’ve had all the time before,” he says. “It is important for us to talk about this. Even in things like being in a meeting and a man interrupting a woman, that is something that is now noticed. Now you can say, in the wonderful words of (Democratic vice presidential candidate) Kamala Harris, ‘I’m talking. It is not to say that it does not continue to happen, but there is a greater recognition that it should not be done. And that is already a good thing ”.

Moss also tries to set an example for the younger generation. When I see someone I’m working with have an opinion and speak it, I think it’s important to say ‘Thank you for doing that. I hear you. It’s exactly what you have to do. ‘ It’s okay to have an opinion. It’s okay to say it. ” And she smiles: “No one is going to think you’re a bitch.”
