It's been revealed that Alexis Bledel will play Ofglen, a fellow handmaiden and companion to Offred, played by Elisabeth Moss. Ofglen seems to be a loyal follower of the system but is really subversive and is also a lesbian.

Also in the cast is Joseph Fiennes, Yvonne Strahovski, Max Minghella, Ann Dowd, Samira Wiley, and Madeline Brewer.

Re: The Handmaid’s Tale


[sign in to see URL] looks pretty depressing to [sign in to see URL] it has Yvonne Strahavski in it, so I might give it a shot just because of that...

It's a bit of a dystopia so might be a little depressing but it can only go up from there
