In the third instalment of The Handmaid’s Tale season four, June Osborne (played by Elisabeth Moss) and her fellow handmaids were put in a truck and told they would be taken to work on the colonies but used for the sickening Gilead ceremonies each month in the hope they would conceive. The fate for the handmaids was not a nice one and June took her chance and attacked Aunt Lydia (Ann Dowd) so they could all escape. Unfortunately when the handmaids ran off, Alma (Nina Kiri) and Brianna (Bahia Watson) were killed by a speeding train as they ran across tracks.

Viewers were left devastated over Alma and Brianna’s death and they also had an affect on June and Janine (Madeline Brewer) who survived the escape.

Looking back on the heartbreaking scene and her time on the show, actress Nina explained she was “forever grateful” for the chance to star on the Hulu series.

Posting on Instagram, she shared a snap of herself talking to author of The Handmaid’s Tale, Margaret Atwood.

Nina captioned the shot: “Thank you for all your sweet sweet messages this week and tbh these past four year.

“I want to share this pic of the completely brilliant person who created this entire world.

“This was at the szn 1 wrap party and I was trying to tell her a (very) long winded story about how I used to READ HER BOOKS EDIBLE WOMAN AND BODILY HARM ALOUD TO MYSELF, especially a specific monologue by a character named jocasta who I really liked.

“Her writing has such spark and pizazz, it was a delight just to say the words out loud.

“Anyways it was way too loud to be telling such a long winded story but I really needed her to know HOW cool to was for me to go from reading her books out loud to myself during an isolated time in my life, to then get to bring to life a character she created ?!! VERY FULL CIRCLE VIBES.”

Nina continued: “Shooting the last three episodes was really special.

“I felt held and heard, thank u to Colin, Lizzie, Bruce, and our other insanely talented writers for that.

“This show has lifted me and guided me in COUNTLESS ways, so many of the beautiful cast and crew became dear friends of mine and I’m forever thankful for that.

“There’s nothing like getting to our set, kicking of my shoes and feeling like HONEY IM HOME. Love you all always and forever.” (sic)

She concluded: “Your support for Alma means everything, so thank u so much for loving her as much as I loved playing her.

“To me, Alma and Brianna live forEVER! Luv u dummies xoxox.” (sic)

Nina wasn’t the only star to bow out of The Handmaid’s Tale in season four with Fred Waterford (Joseph Fiennes) also killed off.

In the final episode, Fred was released to Gilead but in a shocking turn of events, the handmaids were given the chance to take their revenge.

After attacking the Commander, his battered and bloodied body was hung from The Wall in Gilead.

Speaking of his exit, leading actress Elisabeth said: “He was just so inspiring and fun working with him as an actor and then as a director was just, I’m going to miss him.

“But I think we all send him off with love.”

The Handmaid’s Tale seasons 1-4 are available to stream on Hulu now. Season 4 is currently airing on Channel 4 in the UK on Sunday at 9pm.
