Simone Missick

Simone Missick made history for her powerful and extraordinary portrayal in Marvel’s Luke Cage on Netflix as TV’s first black female superhero, “Misty Knight.”  She has been touted as the show’s “breakout star” and was featured as one of People Magazine’s “Ones to Watch” prior to the first season premiere. She continued to portray this impactful character in the other Netflix/Marvel shows The Defenders and Iron Fist. Currently, Simone headlines the upcoming CBS fall series, All Rise in the role of “Judge Lola Carmichael.” All Rise follows the dedicated, chaotic, hopeful, and sometimes absurd lives of the judges, assistant district attorneys, and public defenders as they work with bailiffs, clerks, cops and jurors to bring justice to the people of Los Angeles. Simone will also be starring this year in Season 2 of the Netflix series, Altered Carbon, opposite Anthony Mackie. Previously, Simone filmed the lead in an independent film Jinn directed by Nijla Mumin which premiered at SXSW Festival in 2018.  The film tells the deeply intimate and timely story of a woman that converts to Islam and how this affects her family dynamic.
