Elisabeth Moss is one of the few Hollywood celebrities who are followers of Scientology.
The 40-year-old American actress is well-known for her lead role as June Osborne in The Handmaid’s Tale. She is also a co-producer of the Emmy-winning TV drama.
The series is back with the first episode of Season 5, “Morning,” airing on September 14.
Elisabeth Moss Religion: God Faith And Belief
Elisabeth Moss follows Scientology. She has been Scientologist all her life as her parents were both devout followers of the religion.
Her father once played in a jazz band with Ron Miscavige, whose son, David Miscavige, is the current chairman of the Church of Scientology.
Moss says that Scientology helps her feel “centered.” She believes that it is not a closed-off religion like many people think and that it always welcomes anybody who wants to learn more about it.
Further, Moss thinks Scientology has improved her communication ability and helped her become a better person.
Nevertheless, not all her fans are happy with her religious affiliation. But Moss says she cannot control what people think and is unaffected by their views.
Furthermore, she values religious freedom, tolerance, and equal rights for every race, religion, and creed.
Tom Cruise, John Travolta, Kelly Preston, and Katie Holmes are some other famous followers of Scientology.
