Amiyah Scott's Making History On The FOX Show 'Star'
When the Lee Daniels produced FOX Empire spinoff show Star debuted December 14 with an audience of 6.71 million viewers watching it, our sis Amiyah Scott was making her small screen debut playing Cotton Brown, the trans daughter of Queen Latifah's character Carlotta Brown .
Amiyah made a little TV history as well when the show debuted..She became the first out trans person to play a trans major character in a scripted television drama series that is scheduled to have 13 episodes in Season 1.
Even though Carlotta had her own brush with stardom, she is not that supportive of the musical stardom dreams.of her goddaughters. Carlotta is also struggling as a devout churchgoer with accepting her daughter's transition
There's also Miss Bruce, a recurring gender fluid in the series played by Miss Lawrence, who is an employee in Carlotta's salon. In real life Miss Lawrence is a celebrity hair stylist who owns a salon in Atlanta's Buckhead area with celebrity clients such as Ciara Jennifer Holiday and Serena Williams
Going to have to watch the show now that I know I have a reason to do so.
And congrats to Amiyah for making television history
