Sophisticated, hard-working, and an undeniable talent, Angel Parker has brought to life some of the most dynamic and diverse characters on screen today. She was most recently seen starring on FX’s critically acclaimed Emmy Award winning series “The People v. OJ Simpson: American Crime Story.” Angel was a scene stealer as famed celebrity attorney Shawn Chapman, one of Simpson’s “Dream Team” lawyers.
Angel can be seen recurring on NBC’s highly anticipated series “Trial and Error” opposite John Lithgow. “Trial & Error” takes a comedic turn on a murder trial similar to the recent documentary, “Making a Murderer.” Angel joins the cast as Heidi Baker, a perky Carolina newscaster who is following the Larry Henderson [Lithgow] murder case and reports on the case’s many unexpected twists and turns. The series premieres on March 14, 2017.
Also set to premiere in March 2017, Angel can be seen recurring in BET’s “Rebel” which follows Rebecca “Rebel” Cole (Danielle Moné Truitt), a diligent African-American police officer turned rogue private investigator after her brother is slain by the police. Angel plays Stella Parker, Rebel’s union-appointed attorney who tries to do her best “lawyering” when Internal Affairs is tasked with investigating Rebel’s shooting of a fellow officer. Furthermore, Angel will recur as Alex Green on the final season of FX’s horror series, “The Strain,” airing later in 2017.
Premiering in 2018, Angel has already been cast as Catherine Wilder in “Marvel’s Runways” which will air on HULU.
In television, Angel’s first acting gig was on Joss Whedon’s “Angel.” Since then, she has appeared on some of the most buzzed about series including: “ER,” “Castle,” “Criminal Minds,” “The Closer,” “The Soul Man,” and “Sean Saves the World.” Angel is also well known for her role as the intrepid and vivacious Tasha Davenport on five seasons of Disney XD’s live-action comedy series “Lab Rats.”
At only 16 years old, Angel was accepted into the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. There, she immersed herself in performing, and went on to study Shakespeare at the British American Drama Academy, work with the Independent Shakespeare Company, Will & Company, and performed with The Blank Theatre’s Young Playwrights Festival for more than 10 years.
Angel currently lives in Los Angeles with her husband and two children.
