Which Show Paid More Per Episode: Elisabeth Moss’ ‘Handmaid’s Tale’ Salary vs. ‘Mad Men’ Salary?
Elisabeth Moss’ third hit TV show is The Handmaid’s Tale. Before directing Hulu’s adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s 1985 novel, the actor appeared in The West Wing and Mad Men. For her role as Peggy Olson, she earned six Emmy nominations, and for her role as June Osborne, she won her first Emmy. But which of the two shows offered her the highest salary?
Elisabeth Moss has a net worth of $1 million.
Moss has been at it for a long time. Her resume is stacked as a result of her early credits, which date back to 1990. She appeared in Gypsy with Bette Midler when she was a child. Moss starred in films such as Girl, Interrupted, Anywhere But Here, Mumford, and The Joyriders before starring as Zoey Bartlet on The West Wing from 1999 to 2006.
She went on to star in TV shows including Grey’s Anatomy and more films after leaving The West Wing. Mad Men by Matthew Weiner, on the other hand, catapulted her to new heights. Even though she didn’t win an Emmy for her role as Peggy Olson, the secretary-turned-copywriter opposite Jon Hamm’s Don Draper, Moss’ portrayal of the secretary-turned-copywriter is one of her most memorable.
Moss was able to break into the production industry thanks to his Mad Men fame. After the AMC drama ended in 2015, she produced a few designs. In 2017, she produced and starred in the first season of The Handmaid’s Tale. She is now an executive producer and director for the series. Her producer role means she wins an Emmy whenever The Handmaid’s Tale wins categories like Outstanding Drama Series, which it did in 2017.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Moss is worth $30 million.
