After critics left racist comments on all of actress Moses Ingram's social media accounts, the "Star Wars" franchise and actor Ewan McGregor stepped in to defend her.


Ingram recently just debuted her character Reva in the franchise's Disney+ series "Obi-Wan Kenobi." On Twitter, the franchise stated they are proud to welcome the show's newest star.

The franchise added that critics who want to make Ingram feel unwelcomed in the series should choose not to be racist. Likewise, McGregor conveyed his dismay to the racist naysayers.

In a separate video on the "Star Wars" Twitter account, McGregor expressed disappointment, saying that it "sickened him in the stomach" that some people still make racist remarks today. He said:

"And if you're sending her bullying messages, you're no 'Star Wars' fan in my mind."


McGregor, who plays Obi-Wan Kenobi in the series, complimented Ingram's professionalism, describing his co-star as a brilliant woman who is "absolutely amazing" in the upcoming show.



One of Hollywood's up-and-coming actresses to watch out for, Ingram grew up with five other siblings in a blended family in Baltimore, Maryland. The actress's mother worked in a daycare center, while her stepfather used to work in city operations.

Ingram began acting at ten years old to improve her communication skills. She attended Baltimore School for the Arts for high school and participated in an after-school theatre program.


While attending Baltimore Community College, she acted in local plays and competed in contests. She earned an associate's degree from the college.

After that college, she auditioned for and got accepted to the Yale School of Drama in 2016. She graduated with a Master of Fine Arts degree in June 2019.


As she builds a name for herself, Ingram has been conscious of the ramifications of joining the entertainment industry as a Black woman. Before joining the "Star Wars" cast, TV company LucasFilm cautioned Ingram about "trolls" who might spew racial remarks directed at her.

The team assured Ingram that they would assist her in the series. Ingram remains optimistic, declaring that the "Obi-Wan Kenobi" series will be the most diverse show ever seen by fans.



Before the "Obi-Wan Kenobi" series, Ingram wowed the audience with her acting prowess in another critically-acclaimed show and star-studded film.

Ingram shot to fame in the 2020 Netflix drama series "The Queen's Gambit," where she portrayed Jolene, a close friend of chess prodigy Beth Harmon, played by actress Anya Taylor-Joy.


While Taylor-Joy won a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress, Ingram earned a nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actress on the same awards show.

Ingram also starred as Lady Macduff in the 2021 drama film "The Tragedy of Macbeth" alongside actors Denzel Washington and Frances McDormand.



Ingram responded to racist trolls by posting their comments to shame them on Instagram and prove that she will never get intimidated by any hateful remarks. She accompanied her post with Megan Thee Stallion's song "Megan's Piano."

She also thanked those who stood up for her against the critics, noting that many people seemed to expect her not to speak up. The fearless actress said she is "not built like that."
