June Osborne – Elisabeth Moss

In an interview with BAZAAR.com, The Handmaid’s Tale showrunner Bruce Miller revealed the fourth outing is entirely from June’s perspective.
He said: “The show is all from June’s point of view—all of it, including scenes with other people. Those are scenes where either she knows those people well enough to piece together what would have happened, or at some point afterwards, someone who was there told her what happened.
“Every single thing we see is something she either knows or would know because she’s telling us this story … The voiceover is her memoir.”
Outside of The Handmaid’s Tale fame, Moss is best known for playing Zoey Bartlet in The West Wing between 1999 and 2006.
