The actress has joined the cast of Eva Victor’s drama film ‘Sorry Baby.’ The shooting of the project began in Massachusetts last month.

The actress also played Sully in the ‘Star Wars’ series ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi‘ and gained recognition for creating and starring in Hulu’s ‘PEN15,’ which offers a comedic portrayal of middle school challenges.
