Directed at Moriarty during the show’s recent third season, the “unsolicited commentary on her appearance.”
After posting several screenshots of the essay on Instagram, Moriarty wrote in her caption, “I do feel silenced.
I do feel dehumanized. I do feel paralyzed. I’ve put blood, sweat, and tears into this role (over & over again).
