Elisabeth Moss Talks "Mad Men" in Bello April 2014

On her first thoughts about "Mad Men":
"It's one of those things that when I first got sent [the script] - I mean I had to audition for it - but when i initially got sent it, obviously I was like, 'Yes, I would love to be a part of this!' But then I thought to myself, 'I'm sure they're going to give it to some other actress.'"
On her character
"I feel like in seasons four and five she was getting stronger and funnier and more ballsy, and so now it's kind of about bringing back some of the elements from the beginning of the show when she was a little more lost and vulnerable and bringing it all together into one even more complete person. That last moment that I play [Peggy] and that last take when they yell 'cut' and check the gate: that's the moment that's gonna be kind of freaky. But I think when it really comes down to it, when it ends, it's going to be very much not real to me - it's going to feel like, 'Oh, we'll be back in six months.'"
On her acting before the show:
"I've been around for awhile. I've had disappointment, I've had those moments where you really wanted to get something and you didn't, or when you thought you could do it, but no one else did, so it's nice to finally be like, 'Ok maybe I don't suck.'"
