Bravo has cast actress and trans activist Laverne Cox in a guest spot on its first scripted series, “Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce.”
Cox will play Adele Northrop, a Pulitzer-Prize winning war journalist and LGBT activist who presents an award at a marriage equality gala.
Represented by Hartig Hilepo Agency, Cox plays trans prisoner/beautician Sophia on Netflix’s “Orange Is the New Black.” She’s also appeared on “Bored to Death,” “Law & Order” and “Law & Order: SVU,” as well as in the independent films “Carla” and “The Exhibitionists.”
Cox will executive produce and host “Trans Teen: The Documentary” in the fall and and is planning a documentary titled “Free CeCe.”
“Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce” stars Lisa Edelstein as Abby McCarthy, a self-help book author who hides the fact that she’s separated from her husband as she starts to navigate her life as a single woman in her early 40s.
“Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce” will debut later this year.
