Ahead of the final episode of season 3 of The Handmaid's Tale, star of the show Elisabeth Moss has spoken about which scene of the show was the hardest for her to film.

When asked during an interview with Jimmy Kimmel, the actress who plays 'June' said - "Probably the birth scene in season two, where I had to give birth by myself, naked."

"There was one baby that, in order to get that post-birth look, the guck that comes on a baby, they put cream cheese and jelly on the baby."

The audience let out an adoring 'aww', to which Moss quickly responded.

"That baby was not 'aww'. That baby was not having it. First of all, it smelled, which is weird. The cream cheese and jelly was odd."

"And it hated it, so it was screaming so loud. So I was doing this really emotional scene. I'm like naming the baby after my mother. It's all very emotional and this baby's just screaming at the top of its lungs in my ear. And they're so loud!"

She went on to respond to critics who have said the show is 'too dark and depressing'.

"When people say the show is hard to watch, I get my hackles up," she said. "If you can't face our show, then how are you going to face what's actually happening in the world?

"It's shockingly relevant. It's important to hold that mirror up to society and to ourselves to try to get people to face what's going on, before it's too late."

The Handmaid's Tale is available to stream now on Lightbox.
