How Trans Actors Are Rewriting the Rules of TV Casting

How Trans Actors Are Rewriting the Rules of TV Casting

Although Jen Richards is transgender, the character she played in the NBC series “Blindspot” was not — at least not on the page.

Richards was approached last year by the showrunner Martin Gero to play, she said, an “aggressive, duplicitous C.I.A. agent,” in a two-episode arc that aired in January. “He saw something in me and liked me,” she recalled, adding that she wasn’t asked to audition for the part.

She had recently picked up Gotham and Peabody Awards for “Her Story,” a web series she starred in and helped write about a pair of trans best friends juggling their personal and professional lives. The six-episode drama was hailed as a landmark moment for L.G.B.T.Q. representation — a rare chance to see trans lives depicted honestly and authentically.
