Moses Ingram is set to star opposite Natalie Portman in Apple TV+’s upcoming “Lady in the Lake,” reports Variety. She replaces Lupita Nyong’o as the character of Cleo Sherwood. Nyong’o dropped out of the production on May 23 for unknown reasons.
As noted by Variety, this is the latest high-profile TV role for Ingram, who is fresh off her starring turn in the Disney+ “Star Wars” series “Obi-Wan Kenobi.” Ingram is also known for appearing in the hit Netflix show “The Queen’s Gambit,” for which she received an Emmy nomination for best supporting actress in a limited series. On the feature side, she has starred in projects like “The Tragedy of Macbeth” (which streams on Apple), “Ambulance,” and “The Same Storm.”
About ‘Lady in the Lake’
“Lady in the Lake” is an adaptation of Lippman’s New York Times best-selling novel of the same name. The limited series takes place in ’60s Baltimore, where an unsolved murder pushes housewife and mother Maddie Schwartz (Portman) to reinvent her life as an investigative journalist and sets her on a collision course with Cleo Sherwood (Ingram), a hard-working woman juggling motherhood, many jobs, and a passionate commitment to advancing Baltimore’s Black progressive agenda.
