But on the verge of 2020, Moses starred in ‘Queen’s Gambit’ which excelled to be one of the biggest and most successful shows on Netflix. She played the character of ‘Jolene’ in the series. And since then, we can say that her name is quite skyrocketing. Thanks to her talents and natural instincts on the camera, she successfully played the character with such ease.

In the movie Star Wars Episode 2: Attack of the Clones, he played the character of young Owen Lars, which he played very well through every minute.  Owen Lars himself was later revealing himself as the foster parent of Luke Skywalker. Therefore, he was playing such a vital role in the movie.

Remembering that Joel has such a diverse and fat body of work throughout his career, some people forgot that he starred in Star Wars long before he starred in ‘The Gift’.

In 2018, he starred in Jennifer Lawrence’s Russian affair in ‘Red Sparrow’. The year before, in 2018, he slew a character of an angry baptist in a gay conversion therapy in ‘Boy Erased’. His comeback to the Star Wars franchise is surely an exciting thing to see for this Australian actor.
