The Girlfriend Experience (2016)

Riley’s first television role was in The Girlfriend Experience. She played Season 1’s lead character Christine Reade.

Her performance earned a wealth of praise, and led Riley to her first Golden Globe nomination. She was nominated in the Best Actress – Miniseries or Television Film category.

Welcome the Stranger (2018)

Riley played the character Misty in the 2018 mystery thriller film Welcome the Stranger. She also served as the movie’s producer.

Zola (2020)

Riley played Stefani in the 2020 comedy crime movie Zola. Her co-stars were Taylour Paige, Nicholas Braun, and Colman Domingo.

“...on the page the character was totally outrageous and [the movie’s director] Janicza [Bravo]…allowed me to go as far as I wanted, and didn’t kind of pull me back in, which was a really fun experience,” she told Vanity Fair.

The Terminal List (2022)

In 2022, Riley played main character Lauren Reece in the action thriller TV series The Terminal List. Chris Pratt plays the lead (and Lauren’s husband) James Reece.
