Although the show sees the character of Elisabeth, June Osborne / Offred, going through quite a few challenges, the star said she loves the intensity of her role.
& # 39; The more difficult scenes are my favorites to work on. I'm an actor, so I don't want to stay put and look happy all the time, & she explained. & # 39; When I do that, I get bored. I am not a dark person, but my favorite days are the emotional material. & # 39;
Elisabeth also added that she & # 39; very good & # 39; is in discarding her character when the camera & # 39; s stop rolling because it is & # 39; not someone who stays in the moment & # 39; because that would mean that & & # 39; would lose eye & # 39 ;.
