Q&A with Elisabeth Moss. Moderated by Jarett Wieselman, ETonline.

Sundance Channel presents TOP OF THE LAKE - a 7-part series starring Holly Hunter and Elisabeth Moss. Written and directed by Academy® award winner, Jane Campion.

12 years old and 5 months pregnant, Tui Mitcham walks into a freezing lake ... then disappears. Detective Robin Griffin returns home to investigate, but it's not a simple missing persons case. In this breathtaking but remote mountain town, there are evil forces as powerful as the land itself. And those who offer a glimpse of paradise also provide a path to hell. Trapped where happiness and honest work are just out of reach, Griffin must not only find the girl but also face her own haunting past. With the men that she once left behind now standing in her way, every step closer to solving the case unearths a dangerous truth about herself.

Elizabeth Moss stars as Robin Griffin, a gutsy but inexperienced detective called in to investigate the case of a young girl who is discovered pregnant and then goes missing. An expert in child protection, Robin is based in Australia but has come to Queenstown, New Zealand, to visit her ailing mother. She is also returning to a place where she endured traumatic events, years ago. Robin embodies a series of dichotomies she's very smart and yet naïve; she's strong but vulnerable, she's learned a lot but remains emotionally damaged. Although she has become an accomplished detective, Robin discovers she can be brought to her knees by her past, by what she has denied and is hoping to forget.

Elisabeth Moss also stars as 'Peggy Olson' on the Emmy® and Golden Globe® Award-winning series Mad Men. In addition to the series numerous honors, Moss has received three Emmy® Award nominations, a Golden Globe® nomination, and two Screen Actors Guild Award® nominations for outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series, as well as an Emmy® Award nomination for outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series. She has also joined with the entire cast to win the Screen Actors Guild Award® for Best Ensemble in a Drama Series for three consecutive years. Prior to Mad Men, Moss played Zoey Bartlett, daughter to Martin Sheen's president, for seven seasons on Aaron Sorkin's critically acclaimed and award-winning drama, The West Wing.
