The Handmaid's Tale's Moira actress teases Canadian resistance and fate of Commander Lawrence in season 4

THE Handmaid's Tale's Moria actress has teased Canadian resistance and that Commander Lawrence's fate may be sealed in season 4.

The dystopian tragedy drama has been confirmed to return to screens next year and Samira Wiley, 33, has teased a major change in her character Moira.

One of Gilead's guards shot rogue Handmaid June (Elisabeth Moss) at the end of series three.

After receiving an Emmy nomination for her efforts, Wiley's alter-ego is set to play a pivotal role in the fight against Gilead along with June's husband, Luke (O-T Fagbenle).

The former Orange is the New Black star told Deadline: "We have seen so much of her journey be to try and rescue people."

“I think I’m really excited to see the different sides of Moira.

"We saw her being in love in season one and season two and seeing Moira as the person, side by side with Moira as the activist. I’m excited for that journey."

Lawrence (Bradley Whitford) has proved to be a very intriguing character, at it was brought in for the TV series and does not feature in the original novel.

It has since become known as one of the most morally ambiguous characters in The Handmaid’s Tale.

Whitford, 60, commented: "He reminds me of Robert McNamara, who is the guy who prosecuted the War in Vietnam.

"A brilliant economic mind whose huge brain obliterated his humanity, and he used that brilliance to exterminate a couple of million people in Southeast Asia."

Former Top of the Lake star Elisabeth Moss, 38, has admitted June is 'reaching the end of her nine lives' after repeatedly surviving the horrors of Gilead.

After she was shot, June was seen looking up at the sky, with specks of blood on her skin and a small smile on her face as she was carried along, and now Elisabeth has hinted her time could be up.

"Maybe they killed me off and they’re all off still shooting and they are afraid to tell me,” Elisabeth told TVLine.

She joked: “Yeah, June’s dead, and I’m just going to direct it."
