Elisabeth Moss stars in new spy thriller series The Veil, which has already arrived on Hulu in the US and is now coming to Disney Plus in the UK.


The series, which comes from writer Steven Knight, stars Moss and Yumna Marwan as two women playing – per the official synopsis – "a deadly game of truth and lies on the road from Istanbul to Paris and London", with one said to have a secret, while the other has an objective to reveal it "before thousands of lives are lost".

Moss spoke recently about why she wanted to take on the role, explaining that she 'loves' the spy genre, and felt The Veil was bringing something new to the table.

She said: "I love all the spy franchises, but I don't know if we've seen this kind of story on television before. At least, not in a while. For that reason, I am excited for people to get hooked by how fun, entertaining and global this story is."

Moss continued: "The Veil is an action-packed and international drama. I think that's the hook. And then, of course, there are these two characters at the centre of it all.

"Imogen [Moss] and Adilah [Marwan] are the emotional truth and the emotional heart of the story. I think we’ve achieved a great balance between the character drama and the complexity of that, as well as a lot of fun."
