The up-and-coming Moses Ingram plays the villain Inquisitor Reva Sevander in the series. But the real villains have been anonymous social media users spamming the Emmy-nominated star with vile racist abuse since the series launch.
Star Wars, Disney+, and Ewan McGregor have come out in support of the actor after she shared screenshots on her Instagram story, with one message reading, ‘You’re a diversity hire and you won’t be loved or remembered for this acting role’, according to Rolling Stone.
What Is Moses Ingram’s Net Worth?
As of 2022, Moses Ingram has an estimated net worth of $500,000 (£397,000), according to Celebrity Net Worth.
Moses Ingram made her wealth from her roles in major TV series and films.
The name will ring a bell for Queen’s Gambit fans - Ingram played Jolene, a supporting character to Beth, in the hit Netflix series.
Ingram stood out in the series so much that she was nominated for an Emmy for Oustanding Supporting Actress.
She also shone as Lady Macduff in Joel Coen’s The Tragedy of Macbeth and as Amy Sharp in Micheal Bay’s Ambulance. All this bagged Ingram a well-deserved spot on Variety’s top ten actors to watch in 2021.
The 29-year-old was born in Maryland, USA, and plays a Jedi hunter in the new Obi-Wan Kenobi series on Disney+.
Ingram says she’s received hundreds of racist messages since the series launched, adding “there’s nothing anybody can do to stop this hate”.
The official Star Wars Twitter account hit back at the haters, writing: “There are more than 20 million sentient species in the Star Wars galaxy, don’t choose to be a racist”.
