Natalie Morales career
She spent most of her career on television, but has since made appearances on the big screen as well.
Her breakout role was on the sci-fi series “The Middleman” (2008), which was a brief but successful run for Morales.
After high school, she met her manager, who landed her a role in “Fruitvale.”
After landing lead roles on television, Morales turned to directing. Landing lead roles didn’t solve all her problems, and landing a lead role on an established network didn’t fix her issues.
The actress was starring on NBC’s “Abby’s” when a series executive replaced her, but felt that NBC had lost interest in her show during a time of executive turnover.
Eventually, she earned the opportunity to direct an episode of HBO’s anthology series “Room 104”, which is created by Jay and Mark Duplass.
