Yes it's true — I just joined the Marvel Universe as DODC Agent Deever on the new Disney+ series, Ms. Marvel. You might also know me as Natalie "Fig" Figueroa on ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK (and I won a SAG AWARD as part of the incredible cast!).
However, IRL I’m an actress, activist, producer and eco-momma who uses her superpowers for good.
But did you know? You can also catch me as Sunny on critically acclaimed, Peabody Award-winning BETTER THINGS on F/X, and Kathryn in the new Starz horror-comedy series, SHINING VALE, alongside Courteney Cox and Greg Kinnear, and Kiki Rains on HBO's THE DEUCE. Also, I both star in & produced the Sundance Film Festival hit, EQUITY, and Tribeca Film Festival favorite EGG, which is 100% fresh on ROTTEN TOMATOES (whaaaaa?!!?). A few other recent adventures include getting naked on BROAD CITY with Abbi and Ilana and going head to head against Annalise on HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER. Damn, I am a lucky girl.
But MOST Importantly, I LOOOOVE working as a change maker for women. As an advocate for women's rights and climate change initiatives, I am an ambassador for GDIM, started an eco-fashion initiative, Livari, and just became the first ever eco emissary for zero-waste beauty brand, Izzy. I am also on the Advisory Board of the EARTH DAY INITIATIVE. I have been invited to speak at The White House, The United Nations, Google, Cannes Lion, Women's Media Summit, Collision, and countless film festivals and other events about breaking barriers for women in all fields, specifically the entertainment industry. And to (not so humble) #humblebrag for a sec, I'm really proud to have been awarded the Persistence of Vision Award by the Women's Media Summit, the Sarah Powell Leadership Award by the Women's Prison Association, the MUSE Made In NY Award from The Mayors office & New York Women in Film and TV, the Moves Power Women Award, the Pioneer in Filmmaking Award, the Collaboration Award from the Coalition for Women in the Arts and Media, and, oh please, I don’t want to bore you with all of um...
