Mo Davis is an actress who has worked in TV, film, and commercials. In her various roles, Mo showcases a broad range of personas, and has a great ability to blend into a character, finding a unique voice with each.

In her acting clips, Mo’s artistic range can clearly be seen. She plays characters that range from quirky oddballs to hard-edged professionals, in various situations. With only minor changes to her outward appearance, Mo is able to project a completely different personality, allowing her to disappear into her roles. The cheerful, smiling face in Mo’s headshots instantly becomes another person.

I find it interesting to see how Mo uses her acting to help solidify the power dynamics between characters in a scene. In one clip, Mo plays a detective interrogating a suspect, and manages to come across as quite intimidating. In another, she expresses a romantic struggle with an interesting amount of deference and timidity.
