American actress, Laverne Cox, who is currently shooting the fourth series of Netflix show in New York, is still thrilled she landed the part.

On being cast as the character, she told the Summer 2015 issue of Gay Times magazine: ‘I was just happy to get a job! I hadn’t worked in, like, nine months as an actress and I was thinking about going to graduate school and not acting anymore. I was thinking ‘I gotta make some money’ because my rent was past due. I’d literally been in eviction court and stuff, so I wanted a job real bad.

‘And I thought, ‘Oh my God, this is what I’ve been waiting for and I’ll get to show that I can act and maybe I’ll get more work off the back of it.’
