The firstborn child of Ron and Linda Moss, Elisabeth spent her early years in Los Angeles with her younger brother, from an early age being raised as a Scientologist. She started attending dance lessons from an early age, and from then on her love for performing only increased. She studied ballet at the School of American Ballet in her teen years, and then trained with Suzanne Farrell at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. From dancing, she quickly transferred to acting, and after a few minor roles, had to finish her high school education at home, but successfully obtained her high school diploma two years early.

Her first on-screen role was as Lucky at age six, in the TV mini-series “Lucky Changes” in 1990, while two years later she was chosen for the role of Cynthia Parks in the TV crime drama series “Picket Fences” (1992-1995), and in 1995 had her first film starring role as Anna in the fantasy adventure film “Escape to Witch Mountain”, next to Robert Vaughn and Erik von Detten. She came to prominence with the portrayal of Polly in the biopic about Susanna Kaysen, in the film “Girl, Interrupted” in 1999, featuring Angelina Jolie, Winona Ryder and Clea DuVall in the lead roles.

The same year, Elisabeth was selected for the role of Zoey Bartlet, appearing in 25 episodes of the highly praised TV drama series “The West Wing” (1999-2006), which increased her net worth to a large degree.

She remained active in search of other acting engagements, and in 2003 starred in the drama film “Virgin”, next to Stephen Brian Jones and Andrew Thaman, while in 2007 she landed the role of Peggy Olson in the TV drama series “Mad Men”, which remains one of her most prominent roles so far, appearing in 92 episodes through 2015, during which time she not only increased her net worth to a large degree, while she also received several Primetime Emmy Award nominations and a Golden Globe Award nomination; unfortunately, the reward slipped through her hands every year.

However, Elizabeth’s popularity increased, and she was cast in a couple of successful projections, including the comedy film “Get Him to the Greek” (2010), starring next to Russell Brand and Jonah Hill, then the lead role of Robin Griffin in the TV crime drama series “Top of the Lake” (2013-2017), which won her a Golden Globe Award in the category for Best Performance by an Actress in a Miniseries or Motion Picture Made for Television, while she then starred in the film “Listen Up Philip” in 2014, appearing with Jason Schwartzman and Jonathan Pryce, further increasing her net worth.

The following year, Elisabeth starred in the thriller drama “Queen of Earth”, with Katherine Waterston and Patrick Fugit, and continued with successful film roles, including as Angie Wood in the drama “Mad to Be Normal” in 2017, and the same year she also had the lead role in the comedy-drama “The Square”, next to Claes Bang and Dominic West. To speak further of her accomplishments, Elisabeth began portraying June Osborne in the sci-fi drama “The Handmaid’s Tale”, which brought her second Golden Globe Award, this time for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Drama. Elisabeth is now working on the film “Seagull”, scheduled for release later this year, all of which are adding a considerable amount to her net worth.

Elisabeth has also had success on stage; she appeared in such plays as “Speed the Plow”, “The Heidi Chronicles” – for the latter being nominated for the Tony Award for Best Actress in a Play – and also appeared in “The Children’s Hour”.

When it comes to her personal life, Elisabeth was married to Fred Armisen from 2009 until 2011, however, they were already separated in June 2010. Apparently Elisabeth is now single.
