Actress Ivory Aquino Comes Out As Trans
The cool thing about the actress playing Cecilia in this miniseries is that she is a girl like us.
The 26 year old transpinay always knew she wanted to act, but initially gave up on that dream because she felt there was no place in Hollywood or the acting world for someone like her.
Interestingly enough, when she auditioned for the role of Cecilia,, producer Dustin Lance Black was pissed at casting because they hadn't found any trans actresses for the role, and he was determined to cast a trans person in it.
"You spend your whole life dreaming of these things,"she said. "And it's really humbling when your dreams come true."
Looking forward to seeing you play Cecilia when this miniseries airs February 27-March2
