‘When We Rise’: Why Trans Actress Ivory Aquino Finally Decided to Play a Trans Woman on TV

1 March 2017 6:00 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Ivory Aquino didn’t come out publicly as a transgender woman until she landed a role on ABC’s “When We Rise,” a miniseries that retraces the gay rights movement in America. She had previously been playing cisgender roles in theater, and only select people knew her gender history.

“This is my first trans role because I have played cisgender roles on stage,” Aquino told IndieWire during the Television Critics Association (TCA) press tour in January. “I have been in New York doing theater, doing Shakespeare. I got to play Juliet two seasons ago in Bryant Park, and no one knew I was trans. And it didn’t matter to the audience because they were so invested in the story. After playing Juliet, for me, I was telling a castmate, ‘I could go to heaven now.’”

Laverne Cox Talks ‘Doubt,’ ‘Orange Is the New Black,’ and Making History

20 February 2017 9:28 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“I’m literally living the dream,” admits Laverne Cox.

After years of struggling to launch her career, Cox is coming off a whirlwind year — which saw her star in Fox’s “Rocky Horror Picture Show,” film her scenes for her role in Netflix’s “Orange Is the New Black,” and land a series regular role on CBS’ new drama “Doubt,” opposite Katherine Heigl, which debuted last week.

Cox plays Cameron Wirth, an Ivy League-educated attorney at the law firm where Heigl’s character, Sadie Ellis, works. Cameron, like Cox, is trans, and her casting makes history for broadcast. Here, she talks to Variety about what that means to her, as well as what she wants to explore onscreen with the character. (Hint: There’s a big love story ahead!)

Why did you want to take on this role?

I’ve always wanted to play a lawyer, but when I was approached with this script I saw that »
