If anyone were to take a picture of Joseph Fiennes from Shakespeare in Love and The Handmaid’s Tale, it would be hard not to think that these were two different actors. Fiennes has this uncanny ability to just morph into whatever role he takes on. His actions as Commander Fred Waterford in the first three seasons of Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale were a major part of the spark which ignited the revolution which dominates Season 4.
Mr. Waterford however finds himself in a different place this season. He is no longer the captor and has become the captee. Will he have to pay for his crimes? We were lucky enough to speak with Joseph about season 4 and touched on how the tone of this season is vastly different than previous ones.
