It should come as no surprise that the latest jewel in the Disney crown is already breaking records on Disney Plus. In a recent tweet, it was announced that Obi-Wan Kenobi had "the most-watched Disney Plus Original series premiere globally to date." As the series continues on its successful trajectory, one of the most talked-about characters has become Reva, aka the Third Sister, played by actress Moses Ingram.

So far in Obi-Wan Kenobi, Ingram's portrayal of Reva relentlessly pursuing the titular Jedi has captivated many viewers and left them sitting on to the edge of their seats wanting to know what happens next. While we’d like to say all Star Wars fans have embraced the performer for her acting chops, it sadly isn’t the case. 

Ingram recently took to Instagram to share in a series of IG stories that she was the victim of vile racist attacks on social media. Those hurling insulting comments her way seemed to despise that she, as a Black woman, was a new focus of the hit sci-fi show. It’s disheartening that Ingram would still have to deal with this in today’s society, but her composure in how she’s replied to this group of critics is worthy of applause. 

Additionally, both Star Wars and Ewan McGregor, who plays Obi-Wan Kenobi, have made a point of rallying around Ingram.

Also backing Ingram is her own resume. She's come a long way since her youthful days in Baltimore.  As detailed in the Washington Post (opens in new tab), not that many people are fortunate enough to land an Emmy-nominated acting job within a year of graduating from a fine arts program (even if it is the Yale School of Drama). 

In a matter of roughly three years, she has built quite the name for herself in Hollywood. 

Here is a list of some of Moses Ingram’s most notable performances.

The Netflix series has become what some would call a sleeper hit for the platform. Not only was season one popular among subscribers, but it was also a critic favorite having earned 18 Emmy nominations. One of those nominations was for Ingram’s portrayal of Jolene DeWitt, the paralegal and best friend of the main character Beth Harmon.
