Elisabeth Moss Makes Rare Scientology Comment in Response to Fan

Elisabeth Moss is speaking out to defend Scientology in response to a fan.

The 35-year-old Handmaid’s Tale actress rarely discusses her religion, but she made an exception in the comments section of one of her Instagram photos this week.

Elisabeth captioned the photo, featuring herself on a rooftop, “Last Handmaids Tale season 1 event until the Emmys! Thank you for coming out everyone last night, your love and support of the show means more to us than I’ll ever be able to express in words. Truly. And now we get to go work on bringing you season 2!!! Which by the way is going to blow your minds…😜#handmaidstale ” @ladygraypi.”

User @moeleybanks commented, “Love this adaptation so much. Question though, does it make you think twice about scientology? Gilead and Scientology both believe that all outside sources (aka news) are wrong and evil… it’s just very interesting.”

“@Moeleybanks That’s actually not true at all about Scientology,” Elisabeth replied. “Religious freedom and tolerance and understanding the truth and equals rights for every race, religion and creed are extremely important to me. The most important things to me probably. And so Gilead and THT hit me on a very personal level. Thanks for the interesting question!”

Elisabeth‘s fellow Emmy nominee Leah Remini recently revealed that Elisabeth “isn’t allowed” to talk to her because of Scientology.
