Sandra Oh

On the success of Killing Eve: “I’m grateful that this happened at 47, because I’ve done enough work on myself to really experience it. And then, too, it just has deeper meaning for me.”

On realizing she was offered the leading role in Killing Eve: “I was like ‘Where’s my part?’ When my agent said, ‘You’re f*cking Eve,’ I just couldn’t see it. I couldn’t see myself in a leading role… it’s like a f*cking shard in my heart.”

On maintaining her balance: “I know a big part of my job is to rest, do you know what I mean? The outcome is tremendous, and if you do not rest, you will not be balanced. And if you’re not balanced, you’re an asshole.”

 

 

 

Elisabeth Moss

On the political relevance of The Handmaids Tale: “It’s not like I did this to have a political platform. But at the same time, I’m an American. I’m a woman. I have things that I believe in as a citizen. There’s a responsibility there that I try to handle with as much intelligence as possible.”

On the potential of having children: “I’d like to have that experience of loving someone more than you could ever possibly love anything other than yourself. Of course you think about it when you’re 36. You’re like, How much time do I have left?”

On who she’s dating: “I learned you just don’t talk about it. Who really gives a shit whether or not I’m dating anyone? I hate to put that importance on it. I cringe a little.”

 

 

 

Thandie Newton

On being a survivor of abuse: “The sense of worthlessness, shame—these things are very hard to move on from. But you can.”

On being a role model for her children: “One of the things I relish in life is taking responsibility for the things I have inadvertently or otherwise done that have hurt anybody. Particularly with my children, I want them to see how important and possible it is to change.”

On Westworld and the cultural significance of her character Maeve: “It couldn’t have happened at a more relevant time, let’s face it. Particularly Maeve, because she educates herself in order to revolt and beat them at their own game…which was very satisfying.”
