Laverne Cox on her ‘The Trustee’ pilot not becoming a series: ‘I had such an amazing time working on it’
So the pilot I got to do back in March called "The Trustee" did NOT get picked up for series. But I had such an amazing time working on it with the awesome cast and crew, playing Amanda Jones and being a red head. These are some shots of me on the set of "The Trustee." Just getting the opportunity to be a co-lead on a network pilot is a dream come true especially for a girl like me. It's made that much more special because Amanda wasn't written as a trans character. But the writers, producers and network thought the specific qualities I have as an actress were right for the character. So they hired me. It is my hope that more writers, producers, networks and casting directors will continue to hire talent because of our talent and the very unique, special qualities we as artists can bring to the work.
