Moss began the interview by remarking that she was regretful about not being included in the movie’s team.  

The performer stated: ‘I mean, I’m not gonna lie. I wish…I could have done it. Of course.’

The star of The Handmaid’s Tale also pointed out that she and Campion had been in close contact for an extended period of time prior to the movie’s release. 

‘It’s hard because I really, really wanted to do it and Jane and I talked about it for a couple of years,’ she said.

Although the performer remained regretful about the missed opportunity, she noted that she was understanding of the circumstances.

She stated that ‘[Campion] and I have been very kind to each other in that process, knowing that sometimes these things just don’t work out, and it’s not really anyone’s fault.’ 

Moss then expressed that the performer who filled her prospective part, Kirsten Dunst, was an ideal choice for the role of Rose Gordon.

‘I was actually so happy that Kirsten was doing it because I respect her so much as an actress,’ she said.

The performer added: ‘I think if that role had gone to somebody that I didn’t love, I don’t think I would have liked that. And obviously it’s such a beautiful film.’

The actress reiterated that she was fine with missing out on the role and stated that she wanted to collaborate with Campion in the future. 

‘In the end I’m happy that it happened the way that it did, but I would say my only desperate desire is to work with Jane again,’ she said.

Moss pointed out that she had spoken with the filmmaker on numerous occasions and expressed her desire to appear in one of her films.
