Trina McGee, formerly known as Trina McGee-Davis, is an American actress best known for her portrayal of Angela Moore on the ABC TV sitcom Boy Meets World.[1][2][3] Her character's interracial relationship with Rider Strong's character Shawn Hunter was a relative rarity for a major network television show, especially one whose target demographic was youths. Davis once remarked that the typical reaction regarding the relationship she received from young fans was overwhelmingly positive and encouraging, often inquiring as to when the characters would reconcile after a breakup. She expressed her personal wish that her character's relationship would serve as an example of colorblindness for the world.[4]

McGee, going by the name Tekla Ruchi, played Cinnamon in the 2002 movie Friday After Next.
