Based on Atwood’s historical novel, Gadon plays Grace, who recounts her life story to a young psychiatrist trying to help jog her memory.

“While he’s having these interviews with Grace throughout the show, you begin to question his intentions,” Gadon said in a recent interview. “Is he succumbing to Grace? Does he want to conserve her? Has he become obsessed with her or is she manipulating him?”

Gadon said the engaging part of the story is the gray location of it all. She and director Mary Harron examined various circumstances that would make Grace guilty or not. Gadon states they have their own beliefs about what happened however don’t wish to influence anyone seeing the series.

“The series and the book are everything about the ambiguity and it’s all about the journey,” Gadon said. “Did Grace do it? Did she refrain from doing it? Do you desire her to have done it? It sort of have fun with all those human emotions that we all feel.”

To get ready for the function, Gadon hung around at Black Creek Pioneer Town, a working town in Ontario, Canada, that carries visitors back to the late 1700s to mid-1800s.

“I discovered how to milk a cow, churn butter, begin a fire and … utilize a Victorian-era kitchen,” she stated.

Gadon likewise learned to sew due to the fact that Grace stitches a quilt by hand as she is being spoken with by her doctor. Gadon states she would need a refresher on sewing, but “might churn some butter. It’s pretty simple. It’s a lot of work but I could certainly churn some butter.”

Another Atwood novel, “The Handmaid’s Tale,” is an Emmy-winning series on Hulu.
