Elisabeth Moss on the New Season of ‘Mad Men’: “It’s pretty clear she’s on her way to being Don Draper”

Elizabeth-Moss-Mad_MenThe brand new season of AMC’s Mad Men premiered last Sunday after a 17-month hiatus and the future of Elisabeth Moss’ character, Peggy Olson, is bright. She’s posed to become enormously successful in the advertising world after paying her dues. 

In an interview with Daily News, Moss said, “It’s pretty clear she’s on her way to being Don Draper.  She’s not exactly like him, but she has the skills and she can rise the way he did.  She’s become harder as she’s gone along, but she still has her feminine side.  I think woman today absolutely face and understand the things Peggy goes through.  I’ve never tried to play this as a period drama.”

After being nominated three times for Emmy’s, Moss knows her role in the acclaimed drama is significant.  She said, “Peggy is a great role.  For me, and I think for most of the actors on the show, I’m sure it will be one of the top five roles we ever play.” 

Along with her role on Mad Men, Moss is also filming a Jane Campion BBC miniseries called Top of the Lake—a role in which her outfits are quite different from Peggy’s 60s dresses.  The actress said, “The most important thing for me is my work as an actor, playing characters and roles that are interesting and different.  And often that involves looking different.”
