Love Ayo Edebiri in “The Bear”? Watch Her Other Amazing Performances

Hulu’s “The Bear” has taken the internet by storm. Regarded by several critics as one of the best shows of 2022, the series was almost immediately renewed for a second season. Season two of “The Bear” hit Hulu in June 2023, and was the most-watched premiere of any FX series on the platform, per TV Insider. Among “The Bear’s” dynamic plot with complex characters, the series has also been praised for its stellar cast, which includes the talented Jeremey Allen White, Ebon Moss-Bacharach, and breakout star Ayo Edebiri, who plays chef Sydney Adamu. Edebiri’s performance in the acclaimed comedy-drama has already earned her multiple award nominations, including an Emmy nomination for outstanding supporting actress in a comedy series, as well as significant attention from audiences.

Edebiri started her professional career in standup comedy, and her foundation of writing and comedic wit helped launch the digital web series, “Ayo and Rachel Are Single,” which she developed and co-starred in with friend and NYU classmate Rachel Sennott (“The Idol”). In 2020, she helped write episodes of Netflix’s “Big Mouth,” and later joined the cast to voice the role of Missy. Her role as the soft-spoken, shy nerd opened her up to a number of opportunities, including the animated “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem,” currently in theaters, and the upcoming Marvel film, “Thunderbolts.”

Regarding her recent exposure and line up of future acting gigs, Edebiri revealed to Rolling Stone in a 2023 interview, “Life is wonderful and sometimes unexpected things happen, but it’s all learning opportunities. It’s beautiful to go through hard things when you have wonderful people in your life. It’s great to be lucky enough to learn lessons. And I haven’t narrativized it yet, but I can feel myself learning. I’m excited to be at the point where I’m looking back 10 years later…If the Earth isn’t, like, completely flooded by then.”
