Elisabeth Moss spoke to WOW247’s Matthew Turner about starring alongside Tom Hiddleston in Ben Wheatley’s upcoming JG Ballard adaptation High-Rise, and her memories of playing Peggy Olson in Mad Men.

Watch the interview:

After seven seasons playing the much-loved Peggy Olsen in acclaimed AMC drama Mad Men, Moss has chosen a number of interesting projects, appearing as Detective Robin Griffin in New Zealand-set TV thriller Top of the Lakes and acting in a selection of highly acclaimed indie movies, including Listen Up, Philip and The One I Love.

Her latest film is Ben Wheatley’s High-Rise, adapted from the 1975 novel by J.G. Ballard, in which Tom Hiddleston plays a doctor who moves into a luxury tower block and discovers an isolated community that gradually breaks down, erupting into violent class conflict.


Playing housewife Helen Wilder, Moss joins an eclectic cast that includes Jeremy Irons, Sienna Miller, Luke Evans, James Purefoy and Reece Shearsmith.

High-Rise is released in UK cinemas tomorrow (18 March).
