Congrats are in order for Laverne Cox!
Cox will play Cameron Wirth, a successful defense attorney, who will fight for her clients and even get intimate with one them who may or may not be guilty of a crime.
The role was reportedly created for a transgender actress, and Cox will certainly rise to the occasion as the first transgender series regular character on TV.
On Tuesday, she tweeted out a cryptic message voicing her gratefulness for the opportunities that are coming her way.
I am so grateful for the universe's plan for me and the amazing people in my life who support me and that plan. Thank you so much— Laverne Cox (@Lavernecox) February 11, 2015
