Early life

Moss was born in Los Angeles, California, the daughter of Ronald Charles Moss, who is British, and Linda Moss (née Ekstrom), an American of part-Swedish descent. Both of Moss’s parents are musicians; her mother plays jazz and blues harmonica professionally. Moss has one younger brother. She was raised a Scientologist.

Initially, Moss aspired to be a professional dancer. In her adolescence, she traveled to New York City to study ballet at the School of American Ballet, after which she studied with Suzanne Farrell at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C She continued to study dance through her teenage years, but started getting acting roles as well. To manage her education and career, she began homeschooling, and graduated in 1999.


Personal life

Moss holds both British and American citizenship.

She met Fred Armisen in October 2008,and they became engaged in January 2009, marrying on October 25, 2009, in Long Island City, New York. They separated in June 2010, and in September 2010, Moss filed for divorce, which was finalized on May 13, 2011.

Moss practices Scientology  and identifies as a feminist. After a fan questioned whether her role in the Hulu series The Handmaid’s Tale made her think about her involvement with the Church of Scientology, Moss defended her beliefs on Instagram, writing that the idea that Gilead in the series and Scientology “both believe that all outside sources are wrong or evil”, as the fan had described, is “actually not true at all”. She continued, “Religious freedom and tolerance and understanding the truth and equal rights for every race, religion and creed are extremely important to me.”
