Trina Colette McGee, formerly known as Trina McGee-Davis, (born September 6, 1969) is an American actress best known for her portrayal of Angela Moore on the ABC-TV sitcom Boy Meets World.

Early life[edit]

Born and raised in The Bronx, New York, McGee is of Haitian descent.[2] She attended Howard University in Washington, D.C. for a couple of years.[3][1]

Career[edit]

After minor film roles and guest starring in various sitcoms, McGee got her first reoccurring TV role as Angela Moore in Boy Meets World in 1997. Her character's interracial relationship with Rider Strong's character Shawn Hunter was a relative rarity for a major network television show, especially one whose target demographic was youths. McGee once remarked that the typical reaction regarding the relationship she received from young fans was overwhelmingly positive and encouraging, often inquiring as to when the characters would reconcile after a breakup. She expressed her personal wish that her character's relationship would serve as an example of color blindness for the world.[4] In 2015 she reprised the role for the spin-off, Girl Meets World.
