Erin Moriarty (born June 24, 1994)[1][2] is an American actress. She has had recurring roles on One Life to Live and True Detective, been a series regular on Red Widow and Jessica Jones and appeared in supporting roles in several movies.

Early life[edit]

She was born and raised in New York City.[3] Upon graduation from high school, she deferred attending college to act.[3]


Among her first notable roles were in the center of a love triangle with Nick Robinson and Gabriel Basso in The Kings of Summer,[4][5] in The Watch as Vince Vaughn's daughter,[6] and in Red Widow.[1] She had a recurring role on season 1 of True Detective as Audrey Hart,[7] the problem child of Woody Harrelson's character.[8] She appeared in Blood Father, a 2016 film also featuring Mel Gibson.[9] Her role as Gibson's daughter in Blood Father received praise from critics such as Manohla Dargis of The New York Times,[10] Alonso Duralde of TheWrap,[11] and Owen Gleiberman of Variety,[12] but Ignatiy Vishnevetsky of The A.V. Club felt she was unconvincing[13] and Allen Salkin of the New York Daily News felt she was overshadowed by the likes of Gibson and William H. Macy.[14] In Captain Fantastic, she plays the love interest of George MacKay's character.[15] In season 1, of Jessica Jones, Moriarty played the critical role of a college student with a difficult life, but was not a central character.[16]

In June 2016, she was cast in the LD Entertainment feature film Live Like Line along with Danika Yarosh and Helen Hunt.[8]
