As I said on the 21st-century actors thread, she and Carrie Coon are my two favourite actresses right now. Shirley is the fourth film of hers I've seen--still a few to catch up on, but of the four I probably liked her best in this. Whether she ever eclipses Peggy on Mad Men that'll be tough. Haven't yet seen The Handmaid's Tale.

Damn, sorry about the name.

Its maybe obvious ito resemblance a bit but she brings great jodie foster/clarice starling energy to a few roles

Also saw The One I Love, so five films. She had a pretty big role in Girl, Interrupted, long before Mad Men. I may have seen that, but I don't remember the film or her.

This past Xmas season, I was quite amused to discover Moss voiced the female lead in the '90s animated Frosty sequel TV special w/John Goodman (one of her first roles, IIRC).

I like her a lot, even when — as in Her Smell, e.g. — I think the movies fall short.

I stayed away from that one based on the trailer I saw, but yeah, I get the feeling she's worth seeing in anything--hard for me to imagine a bad performance from her right now.

(Thanks to whomever for the title correction.)

Almost went with that for the thread title. I checked a couple of Peggy Olson Quotes lists, tried to look for something lesser known.

(Actually almost scans the same as a famous quote from Friday Night Lights--and rhymes with it.)

I'm Peggy Olson and I want to smoke some marijuana
Now that's what I call a 12-step program.
Hi, Peggy!
