The Story

Under his eye.

I think I know what that means....

It means we sat down with actor O-T Fagbenle, star of “The Handmaid’s Tale,” to text about his morning routine, favorite podcast, and his advice for June. Hint: He's not giving up on their marriage.

What else did he say?

He gave us some insight about life on set. Turns out, the show swaps out babies because you can't a keep kid on set for too long. He also has a book rec for Luke called "Man's Search for Meaning." We'll let you guess why.

What about when he’s not trying to save his TV wife from Gilead?

He’s perfecting his American accent (fun fact: he’s British), listening to Russell Brand’s podcast or bingeing “Killing Eve”.


O-T isn’t slowing down anytime soon. You’ll see him in the next Black Widow movie. Praise be.
