Alexis Bledel’s work as Ofglen is one of the highlights of The Handmaid’s Tale. In a series full of career best performances she’s consistently been one of the standout turns, especially episode 3 which she spent silent despite being front and centre.
Now, it seems like she’s set to be back more often. While her appearances in season 1 are sporadic her season 2 work will be as a regular. Which is a surprise given how episode 5 plays out, and that’s why we’re hiding this behind a spoiler
We’re delighted by this because Bledel’s great, the show is doing excellent work expanding on the book and it means Ofglen gets at least some good news. Which, as we see, is long overdue…
Thanks to Variety for the tip.
The Handmaid’s Tale is on Sundays on Channel 4 at 9pm.
