Moss appears on the cover of the Fall 2014 issue of Gotham magazine. She talks about who she wants to work with, what makes her happy, and New York City.
I love going to the theater. I can’t get over that feeling when you’re walking down a street in the 40s, with rows of theaters on either side. It’s 7:30 pm and you’re going to see a play, and so many people are also going to go see plays, which I think is so cool. There’s an excitement and there’s buzz. It brings me back to when I’ve done Broadway and makes me wish I were backstage in my dressing room getting ready. You can go to beautiful places, neighborhoods, and parks in many different states and countries, but there’s nothing like the theater district for me.
Moss plays Sophie, a young wife in a troubled marriage, in this dark romantic comedy directed by Stuart Murdoch. During a marriage counseling session with her husband, their counselor suggests a weekend away at a retreat where he sends some of his clients. Upon arrival, the couple find nothing but a big empty house in which they first, begin to rekindle some of their former spark, and second, encounter some things they cannot explain. Co-starring Mark Duplass and Ted Danson.
And I don’t know a couple, whether they’ve been together for three weeks or 16 years, where one of them doesn’t at some point say “Huh … this isn’t exactly where I wanted to be.” And they have to decide whether or not they stay.
Moss is nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress at the 65th Primetime Emmy Awards for portraying Peggy Olson on Mad Men.
It’s shocking, honestly. You don’t get used to it, so it’s almost like every year is more surprising than the last. You just expect it to stop at some point. This is my fifth nomination for Mad Men, every year it blows my mind even more.

I woke up and I did not intend to get up, but I checked my phone – as you do – and I saw that I had one text from Connie Britton, who’s my friend, and a voicemail from my publicist, Erica. I was like, what is this about? I checked the message and she said, “Double nomination,” and I was sort of shocked and confused. I don’t think it’s sunk in. I have a birthday next week, and it’s kind of a nice little birthday present. I just want to… feel good about and enjoy this moment. I’m so honored to be part of these two groups – Mad Men and Top of the Lake – and I’m proud of both of them. They’re both families. It’s something I just want to enjoy. This is a good moment.
Moss discusses her career and role in the BBC and Sundance Channel miniseries, Top of the Lake, in this interview for PBS.
It had that sort of Twin Peaks kind of vibe, and the character is very different from my day job as Peggy. It was something that was going to really challenge me, and so that kind of one-two-three punch, I really wanted to be involved. Then I was sort of like, well, I look forward to congratulating the actress that ends up doing this role.
