Oprah Winfrey did indeed lend her voice to last night's episode of the Hulu series, playing a radio announcer in an uncredited cameo. "We'd heard Oprah was a fan of the show, and had a story idea, and thought, wouldn’t it be wonderful if... . So we asked and she said yes, and it was a lovely, easy process," The Handmaid's Tale creator/showrunner Bruce Miller said in a statement. "The radio segment she recorded was inspired by the free radio of the Allies from WW2. It was an absolute honor to have Oprah featured on the show, and especially thrilling as she was the one who presented us with the Emmy last year." In April, Elisabeth Moss recalled a "silent freak-out moment" of Oprah asking her questions about the show in early 2017, before filming a drama actress roundtable. "She was in the dressing room next to me and she kept popping back into the room to ask questions about the show or to make comments or ask what was coming up for a specific character," said Moss. ALSO: Oprah's cameo was the rallying cry the show needed.
