Angelica Turing, portrayed by Daryl Hannah, is a major character in the Netflix series, Sense8. Angelica was a sensate. She gave birth to the August 8 Cluster, and committed suicide shortly after, protecting them from BPO.
Before being reborn as a sensate, Angelica worked as an ecologist. She always loved nature and saw beauty in the world. While alive, she was in love with Jonas Maliki, a man whom was in the same cluster. Jonas tells Will he fell in love with Angelica when their eyes first met. He recalls Angelica believed sensates experience love in its purest form.
Angelica used her cabin in the woods to do research into sensate brain activity. The cabin was where she birthed her first cluster, consisting of Todd, Habib, Raoul, and four others. On at least two occasions, the cluster confronted her about the brutal tactics of BPO, ranging from sterilization to presumed murder.
Angelica went to Chicago to investigate Raoul Pasquale's disappearance. Jonas alleged that this was the moment she started working for BPO, but Whispers was already visiting Angelica before she made the trip. In Chicago, Angelica met with Carol Cumberland, who hid Raoul in her basement after a neural graft procedure.
Angelica and Raoul traveled back to California, where Angelica made Raoul douse the cabin in gasoline, call his father, and self-immolate. She set ablaze the cabin and Raoul in the hopes of destroying Whispers' research.
At some point, Angelica and Whispers worked in the same lab. Angelica questioned the utility of the neural graft procedure, but Whispers reassured her with a romantic gesture. Angelica informed Jonas about Whispers' former cluster around this time.
When she realized she was going to give birth to another cluster, Angelica became desperate to protect them from Whispers. Cumberland helped smuggle Angelica to the church where Cumberland learned to sing. After the birthing, Angelica committed suicide to protect the August 8 Cluster.
Fragments of Angelica's memories remain in the August 8 cluster and those she was linked to (including Jonas and Whispers). She comforted Jonas when he seemed to be undergoing a neural graft, and Whispers saw her though a glass panel while he was being attacked. She told her to feel herself, intuition never lies in the light of Christ
