As we know, in the cast of the fifth season of The Handmaid’s Tale there will also be Genevieve Angelson , seen in New Amsterdam .
The actress will play a new character, Mrs Wheeler, a Canadian woman who admires Serena Waterford and all she has managed to achieve in Gilead .
Speaking with TVLine , Angelson said:
I am very tempted to say that, in reality, there are no villains. Even though Serena is “the bad one” on the show, she is looking for painful solutions to an equally painful problem. You have to resort to drastic solutions.
Continuing with his speech, he then added:
To play Mrs Wheeler, I couldn’t just say “I’m playing an evil character.” I had to say, “I am playing a person who is willing to do anything to continue the existence of the human race, and that is what we have to face. Do I want to be this person? Most likely not. But I’m accepting that this is my reality and that’s what I’m doing ”. That’s how I got away with it.
The plot of season 5
In the new episodes, June will face the consequences of killing Commander Waterford as she struggles to redefine her identity and purpose. Widow Serena attempts to improve her image in Toronto as Gilead’s influence seeps into Canada. Commander Lawrence works with Aunt Lydia as she tries to reform Gilead and rise to power. June, Luke and Moira fight Gilead from afar as they continue their mission to rescue little Hannah and reunite with her.
