With high-concept shows like The Handmaid’s Tale, it’s often hard to predict what the characters might look like in real life. How weird is it seeing the characters of Game of Thrones with eyeliner and crop-tops instead of their usual medieval garb?

Yeah, well, seeing The Handmaid’s Tale cast in real life is just as weird.

Evil Aunt Lydia? Looks sweet as pie. Serena Joy? A mellow girl who, at least on Instagram, always seems to be out hiking. And The Commander? Well, he actually more or less looks the same, but just less skeezy.

Here we go!

We’re going to need some time to digest this before we can start Season 2. We’re glad we have some time, even if we are DYING to see what happens next!
