I was amazed at the visually stunning opening of The Handmaid’s Tale, the fourth season of the dystopian tragedy.
The series was so beautifully shot that I felt guilty when I saw it on a small screen.
Fans, now a cultural phenomenon, were delighted to learn that the June (Elisabeth Moss) battle to escape Gilead was not in vain.
But this season, new challenges await her. And her longing for justice and revenge makes the relationship she cherishes somewhat destructive.
Based on Margaret Atwood’s acclaimed 1985 novel, The Handmaid’s Tale has won and has received 75 impressive awards so far.
Several characters are back this season.
And Ann Dowd, who plays Aunt Lydia, became quite soft in the third season.
When she was first introduced, she showed strict characteristics as a maid’s responsibility.
Regarding the change in her personality, Daud admitted:
“I think Margaret Atwood, the author of The Handmaid’s Tale, and Bruce Miller, the showrunner, would disagree, but I’ve come to know her in the fourth year.
“Gilead is certainly not in the right position. The walls that keep it alive are falling. Gilead’s outlook is not good.
“Lydia isn’t a fool, she does what she needs to survive. It’s about maintaining her senior position. For example, commanders can always afford to break the rules. This is a testament to their power. ..
“Lydia is engaged in a fight of love for Janine (Madeline Brewer) and June. She knows that siding with them can put her in a dangerous position. I know I have the upper hand to survive and I understand that if I want to continue my life, I need to lie. “
She continued. “The truth of the matter is that Lydia praises June for her fearlessness, but understands that such recklessness can cost her life.
“As a result, Lydia has developed a fine-tuned, independent filter that continues to harness herself and the people she cares about.”
This season, Lydia finds herself trapped in June with Commander Joseph Lawrence (Bradley Whitford).
She states: He is very good His contempt in June was annoying, and Lydia was able to level him in two sentences, but she can’t do this in the hierarchy.
“This season, Lydia walks on the board and finds herself working with Lawrence.
“Lydia leaves her comfort zone and acts like a commander she’s never seen before.”
Lydia’s attachment to June is strong in seeing much of herself in June.
The sexagenarian actress explains: I say this because June is someone who wants to be Lydia.
“The courage of June, the willingness to see what it is, and the choice of principles over safety, in my opinion, is Lydia.
“Lydia may not be consciously aware of this similarity, but she is deeply excited and amazed at the risks that June takes.
“Lydia wants her to be able to do the same, and this season she does, and it’s great.”
And she also couldn’t stop singing the praise of Moss wearing the director’s hat.
“She’s great. We’re intimate as both colleagues and friends, so her understanding of Lydia allows her to suggest other ways to see the character.
“She always had a new idea. If I had a hard time understanding something, she was always digging it up.
“Elizabeth is a great leader and she sets a great example.
“It was really great to see her break out of her leadership role and step into some of these brutal scenes.”
Despite the series being filmed during Covid-19, Daud says the level of care for the set was outside this world.
Fans will also witness a deeper bond between Lydia and Janine.
Oh, before I forget, child actor McKenna Grace joins the cast as the wife of a much older commander teenager.
The first three episodes of “The Handmaid’s Tale” are currently being streamed Showmax.. New episodes will be dropped every Monday.
