ROBOT. As Rolling Stone wrote in their review of the MR. ROBOT series finale: “…what makes the scene so powerful are the performances by Rami Malek and Gloria Reuben (who delivers a masterclass in how to convey so much information while making it feel emotionally resonant).”

In film, Gloria portrayed “Elizabeth Keckley” alongside Daniel Day-Lewis & Sally Field in the Steven Spielberg film LINCOLN, appeared with Paul Rudd and Tina Fey in Paul Weitz’s ADMISSION, and starred opposite Samuel L. Jackson in REASONABLE DOUBT. Gloria’s portrayal of Condoleezza Rice in David Hare’s play STUFF HAPPENS at The Public Theater in NYC garnered her a Lucille Lortel Award for Best Actress.

In music, Gloria’s career includes being a backup singer for Tina Turner in 2000, which led her to record her solo record JUST FOR YOU. Gloria released a jazz album PERCHANCE TO DREAM in 2015 on the iconic MCG Jazz label, and her new album FOR ALL WE KNOW will be released on Valentine’s Day 2020, again on the MCG Jazz label.

Gloria’s non-fiction book MY BROTHERS’ KEEPER: TWO BROTHERS. LOVED. AND LOST. (an intimate tribute to her two brothers who have passed away) was published by Post Hill Press in November 2019 and is available in stores and online.
