YV: Tell us about yourself—who is Muretta Moss?

Muretta Moss: I found an old journal and in there was a section where I had once written, “I’m a decidedly mixed up girl with a strong lead into the heart of God.” I’m now a spiritual, self-assured woman who still gets mixed up every now and then. For the sake of simplicity, I’m an actress, writer, and improviser based out of Atlanta. I love cats and avocado toast.

YV: What motivated you to become an actress?

Muretta: At this point, I can’t imagine being anything else. There is a cosmic pull to acting and performing. It all started when I was in college and had a turbulent time trying to “figure it all out.” Everyone around me seemed to know what they wanted to do with the rest of their lives. I realize now that wasn't the case—we were all figuring things out. But when my university was being used as a location to film a full budget movie and I got to be a part of it, that was a game changer. Walking into the quad filled with lights and cameras and actors—I was hooked. A film set really is a magical place.

YV: Holiday season is approaching, and we love a great holiday movie! Your upcoming film, A Loud House Christmas, focuses on reconnecting a family for the holidays. Tell us a bit about your role as the Matriarch, Rita Loud.

Muretta: Rita Loud is the mother to eleven kids—eleven! Ten girls and one boy, Lincoln Loud. And it’s a lovely story of how some things change and some things stay the same. It’s difficult when everyone grows up and that one constant of having the holidays all together shifts. These kids are all so talented and professional that it made me think “wow, I could actually parent 11 kids in real life” but I joke. I joke because these kids are exceptional. I also love how clearly defined their characters are, it’s fun to watch “my kids” bring their characters to life. A Loud House Christmas is the perfect holiday movie to snuggle up on the couch with your loved ones and have a nice “loud” laugh.

YV: Let’s talk about Intersection. You are the co-creator, writer, and star of this dark comedy about gentrification and the people living through it. What about this series makes it a dark comedy?

Muretta: This is a great question because there isn’t really anything funny about gentrification, right? Watching this series, you may have one of those moments where you don’t know whether to laugh or cry. The character I play, Mary Margaret, is a struggling real estate agent desperate to have her name in the spotlight and will go to great lengths to make it happen. She’s cringey and a little too relatable at times.

YV: Oscar Wilde once said, “life imitates art far more than art imitates life.” How will this series
