The same day that Elisabeth Moss took home an Emmy Award for her work in The Handmaid's Tale, the actress appeared on Today, where she talked about her career, her early days as a performer, and, very briefly, her faith. Moss, who recently made headlines when she defended being a Scientologist to a fan on Instagram, had this message for anyone wanting to know more about her connection to the church.

"I'm always happy to have a personal conversation with somebody off the record, but in this kind of scenario, no," she told Willie Geist about speaking about her religion in an interview.

When asked if she feels like being a Scientologist had affected her work or roles in any way, she added: "I feel like I've done OK... I mean, I honestly don't pay attention to anything except for what people think of my work."

Back in August, the Emmy winner clarified for a fan if her work on The Handmaid's Tale and her faith "make you think twice" since, according to the fan, "both Gilead and Scientology both believe that all outside sources (aka news) are wrong or evil."

“That’s actually not true at all about Scientology. Religious freedom and tolerance and understanding the truth and equal 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!" she said.
