On Thursday, July 11, CBS Mornings welcomes actor Moses Ingram and retired soccer player Brandi Chastain to the show. Ingram will discuss her role in the upcoming HBO series Lady in the Lake, while Chastain will reflect on her illustrious soccer career and her current work as a coach and sports broadcaster.

Moses Ingram, best known for her roles in The Queen’s Gambit and Obi-Wan Kenobi, joins the show to talk about her latest project, Lady in the Lake. Ingram, who grew up in Baltimore, rose to prominence with her portrayal of Jolene in the Netflix miniseries The Queen’s Gambit, for which she received an Emmy nomination.

She gained further recognition as Reva Sevander/the Third Sister in the Disney+ miniseries Obi-Wan Kenobi, a role that unfortunately led to her receiving hundreds of racist messages and death threats on Instagram. Despite this, Ingram persevered, and her dedication to her craft has been recognised by her co-stars, including Ewan McGregor, who praised her as “a graceful little butterfly”.

Brandi Chastain, a retired American soccer player, is a two-time FIFA Women’s World Cup champion and two-time Olympic gold medallist. Chastain represented the United States national team from 1988 to 2004, scoring 30 goals in 192 caps. She is also a coach and sports broadcaster, sharing her expertise and passion for the sport with audiences beyond the pitch.

Chastain’s iconic World Cup-winning penalty shootout goal against China in 1999 remains a defining moment in sports history, with her spontaneous celebration—removing her jersey and falling to her knees in a sports bra—gracing the covers of Sports Illustrated, Time, and Newsweek.

CBS Mornings airs Thursday, July 11, 2024, at 7:00 a.m. on CBS.
