Alexis Bledel Character Description:
EMILY, a college professor who was a mother married to another woman before the war, has endured horrific punishment as Offred’s Handmaid companion Ofglen. Cynical and hell-bent on revenge, she still treats the victims of Gilead with tenderness and compassion.
Season Two Synopsis:
The Emmy-winning drama series returns with a second season shaped by Offred’s pregnancy and her ongoing fight to free her future child from the dystopian horrors of Gilead. “Gilead is within you” is a favorite saying of Aunt Lydia. In Season Two, Offred and all our characters will fight against – or succumb to – this dark truth.
The Handmaid’s Tale stars Elisabeth Moss, Joseph Fiennes, Yvonne Strahovski, Samira Wiley, Alexis Bledel, Ann Dowd, Max Minghella, Madeline Brewer, O-T Fagbenle and Amanda Brugel.
