Indya Moore plays "Angel Evangelista," a Puerto Rican streetwalker. After leaving Stan and the financial stability he provided, Angel reluctantly returns to the piers. She’s soon pushed to pursue a career as a fashion model, launching her to new heights, new demands, and burgeoning new love.
Moore is an actor, writer, director, model, social activist and founder of Beetlefruit Media Inc., a production company focused on storytelling in various mediums. Born and raised in the Bronx, they have appeared in such publications as Teen Vogue, L’Officiel, GQ, Vogue, OUT, as well as collaborations with such designers as Altuzarra, Louis Vuitton and Calvin Klein. Moore’s work has graced international music videos as well as the big and small screens. Vanity Fair has praised Moore’s performance as “Angel,” writing “Moore is terrific at communicating Angel’s wariness and want, craving the intimacy and stability…[her storyline] is handled with sensitivity and nuance, all of it expertly maneuvered by Moore with rich, subtle emotional clarity.”
Moore has performed alongside Katy Perry and Migos on Saturday Night Live. Moore also appeared in the critically acclaimed feature film Saturday Church, which debuted at the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival and was distributed by Samuel Goldwyn Films. The New York Times called the film “a disarmingly and consistently sensitive movie,” and Variety described it as “constructive in the way it invites viewers to consider and discuss issues of intolerance and hypocrisy.”
Last year, Moore wrapped production on the pilot for an anthology TV series Magic Hour, a modern take on Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein that follows a mysterious young woman who wakes up one morning without a soul and roams the streets of Tokyo in search of one. On the producing side, Moore is currently in development on numerous projects across multiple mediums under her Beetlefruit Media Inc. banner.
Moore currently resides in New York City.
