Elisabeth Moss's Quotes
- To go from Girl, Interrupted (1999), where I had to cry every day, to a TV show like The West Wing (1999), where I get to laugh and joke around every day, has been a welcome relief.
- The great thing about Pete and Peggy's storyline is that you barely have to do anything. There's so much there, so much history, that you can have them exchange a look and it's so loaded. So you honestly don't have to do anything.
- Obviously, my life and my job in 2010 is very different from Peggy's experience in the 1960s. I exist in a world that enjoys more equality between men and women. But I don't take any of that into my performance. I just want to play the character as who she is as an individual - scene to scene.
- I've heard people say, 'I love how the characters never say what they're really thinking, and I love how things are so open-ended and you just never know what's going to happen.' Do you know what I mean? So it's an opinion, you know? I've heard very few, if any criticisms of the show, and I think that it obviously is working, whatever we're doing.
- I think my guideline has been to find things that inspire me. And as long as I stick to that, I don't think I'll have any problems crossing over to becoming an adult actress.
Elisabeth Moss – From Childhood to the Big Stage
Elisabeth Singleton Moss is one of the most talented actresses of our time. She has earned a reputation in the entertainment industry for being versatile and imaginative with her roles. Moss’s net worth is $30 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth, thanks to her work as an actress and executive producer in the film and television industry.
Moss was born in Los Angeles, California, on July 24, 1982, to musical artists Linda and Ronald Moss. Moss first discovered her passion for dance at a young age and went on to study ballet at an intensive program at the School of American Ballet in New York City. After completing this, she trained under celebrated ballerina Suzanne Farrell at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. Moss attributed her dance background to helping her launch her acting career and maintain a professional attitude on set.
The Early Years in Television
Moss landed her first television gig when she was only eight years old in the television film ‘Bar Girls.’ Over the next decade, Moss would build a substantial career in television, receiving recognition and critical acclaim for TV appearances on such shows as ‘The West Wing,’ where she played Zoey Bartlet, the daughter of President Bartlet for 25 episodes. However, it was her onscreen persona of Peggy Olson on the show ‘Mad Men’ that really brought Moss into the spotlight.
From ‘Mad Men’ to Success
As Peggy Olson on ‘Mad Men,’ Moss earned five Emmy nominations for best actress in a drama, bringing to life a complex character who rises from lowly copywriter at an advertising agency to a full-fledged feminist operating on her terms. After the show came to an end in 2015, Moss took on a myriad of other projects on the big and small screens, which included productions such as ‘The One I Love’, ‘Her Smell’, ‘Us’, ‘Shirley’, and ‘The Invisible Man.’
Moss extends her theatrical talent while also marking full-time appearances on the small and big screens. She has appeared in various stage productions, like the revivals of David Mamet’s ‘Speed-the-Plow,’ playing Karen, Anna Schnitzler’s ‘The Heidi Chronicles,’ for which she earned a Tony nomination, and Lillian Hellman’s classic drama ‘The Children’s Hour’ alongside Keira Knightley.
Moss has received widespread acclaim for her notable performances across multiple genres of entertainment, and she has been consistently judged praiseworthy by both industry peers and audiences. Her work in TNT’s dystopian television series adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ and the standalone miniseries ‘Top of the Lake’ earned Moss much recognition, including one Emmy, one Golden Globe Award and a Screen Actors Guild award
What is Elisabeth Moss’s Net Worth?
According to various reputable sources, Moss has an estimated net worth of $30 million. This amount comes from the revenue generated by her label as the best performer on TV via Elisabeth Mobile Phone Productions, her company, as well as from her high salaries performing both on and off-screen. She calls herself as tiny brave for producing and acting in meaningful content. The star actress earns around $1 million per episode for her work in the show ‘The Handmaid’s Tale.’ Besides acting, production companies give Moss high paychecks for acting roles.
The Actress of a Lifetime
Elisabeth Moss is regarded as one of the greatest actresses of her time, and for good reason. Her versatile and sturdy range has been on full display in both blockbuster films and prestige television. Moss is an outspoken advocate for women’s issues both on and off-screen, creating roles that go beyond being mere entertainment. The actress runs her production company to promote diverse programming for women
Beyond the Screens
In 2017, Moss created an Instagram account, which she rarely uses except once a year during Earth Day to urge her followers to act for the environment. She has also actively supported the Planetary Health Alliance and is involved with Friends of El Faro, a non-profit organization that provides day-care and services (educational, healthcare and socialization) for working homeless families in Los Angeles.
Overall, Elisabeth Moss is a highly versatile and immensely charismatic actress who has left a fantastic impact on the entertainment industry. Her stage, film, and television work are all of high quality, rooted in an authenticity that has made her immeasurably respected by audiences and critics worldwide.
