Elisabeth Moss says she is not the one to take sexual harassment lying down - she never has and she never would.
The 35-year-old actor, who both leads and produces the dystopian drama "The Handmaid's Tale", said she feels a sense of "responsibility" to ensure a safe workplace environment for the cast and crew.
"I don't tolerate that kind of behaviour regardless, whether it be as an actor or a producer and I never have.
"But I do think there's a certain amount of responsibility as a producer to make sure we have a safe working environment. And I do feel maybe a little extra responsibility being that I am a female producer," Moss told OK! magazine.
The actor said she is proud how the Hulu series has found a connect with audiences around the world.
"The thing that means the most to me that people say is that it gave them some sort of strength or some sort of bravery. Maybe they're going through something in their own country, whether they're a woman or whether they're gay or whatever it is.
"They watch the show and it gave them some sort of strength to be who they are and to not give up on who they are," she said.
The series, based on the 1985 novel of the same name by Margaret Atwood, is currently in its second season.
