Early life[edit]

Reid was born on July 1, 2003, in Atlanta, Georgia, to Rodney and Robyn Simpson Reid.[1][2] She is the youngest of four siblings, which include her brother Josh and two sisters, Iman and Paris.[3] From an early age, Reid aspired to become an actress, and at the age of 9, she and her family moved to Los Angeles for her to pursue acting.[2]

Career[edit]

Reid began her professional acting career at a young age, debuting with the television film A Cross To Bear in 2012. In 2013, she starred as Emily in the historical drama film 12 Years a Slave, which received critical acclaim.[4] In 2016, she starred as Tina in the science fiction drama film Sleight, the younger sister of the film's protagonist, Bo.[5] The film was a success, and was received positively.[6][7] Also in 2016, she starred as Aki in the film Lea to the Rescue, which was part of the American Girl film series.[8][9]

In 2017, she appeared as Patricia in the comedy-drama film A Happening of Monumental Proportions, which had been received negatively by critics.[10] Better received was her role as Meg Murry in Ava DuVernay's A Wrinkle in Time, which was based on the novel of the same name.[11] In spite of the film emerging as a box-office bomb, Reid's performance earned praise from critics, with some noting her take on the character as a highlight of the film.[12] Writing for The Hollywood Reporter, Josh Spiegel stated that "Reid is one of the film's biggest assets overall; Meg's arc from being crippled by self-doubt to embracing her faults and her dysfunctional family is wonderfully realized through her expressive and subtle work."[13] For the role, she earned a nomination for the Teen Choice Award for Choice Fantasy Movie Actress and the NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Breakthrough Role in a Motion Picture.[14][15][16]

In 2019, Reid starred as Lisa in two episodes of the critically acclaimed Netflix limited series When They See Us.[17][18] and began portraying the main role of Gia Bennett, the younger sister of the series' protagonist Rue, in the HBO teen drama series Euphoria.[19][20][21] That same year, she voiced Nia in the Hulu series The Bravest Knight,[22] and co-starred with David Oyelowo in the drama film Don't Let Go as Ashley, the latter of which earned her and Oyelowo positive reviews.[23][24] FilmSnobReviews wrote that the pair "bring an emotion-filled performance to the screen, capturing grief and confusion to near perfection."[25]

In 2020, Reid starred as Sydney Lanier, the daughter of James Lanier, in the science fiction horror film The Invisible Man, which was a commercial success and received critical acclaim.[26][27] In the same year, she was nominated for the BET YoungStars Award.[28] Reid appears in the superhero film The Suicide Squad, which was released in 2021.[29][30] The following year, she starred opposite Colson Baker, Kevin Bacon and Travis Fimmel in the ensemble action feature One Way.[31]

In 2023, Reid had leading roles in the mystery/thriller film Missing, which was filmed over the COVID-19 pandemic, and the supernatural horror film The Nun II.[32][33][34] Also in 2023, she portrayed Riley Abel in the HBO series The Last of Us, appearing in the episode "Left Behind". /Film's Motamayor wrote that Reid "gives a memorable performance that ... sticks with you long after the credits roll",[35] and Push Square's Bayne said she effectively captured Riley's sense of "youthful pride".[36] For her performance, she won the Black Reel Award for Outstanding Guest Performance in a Drama Series and the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series.[37][38]

Personal life[edit]

In the fall of 2021, Reid began attending the University of Southern California, majoring in dramatic arts and minoring in African American studies.[39][40] She is a Christian.[41]
