Remini says of her King of Queens co-star, “They always tried to get me to, (asking) ‘Why is he not in? Why have you not promoted it to him?’ I was like, ‘Because he’s Catholic. He doesn’t want anything to do with it. They let it go after a while, but usually you’d be expected to recruit, especially with somebody you work with for nine years.”

Elisabeth Moss responds after a fan asked if The Handmaid's Tale made her “think twice about Scientology
