Asia Kate Dillon has been upped to series regular on Billions.
The performer will be promoted for the upcoming season with Season 2 currently airing. Dillon plays the first gender non-binary character on TV introspective financial whiz Taylor Mason. The news came during a panel for the Showtime show at Deadline’s The Contenders Emmys Event.
Dillon wrote to the TV academy asking ““I’d like to know if in your eyes ‘actor’ and ‘actress’ denote anatomy or identity and why it is necessary to denote either in the first place?””
The answer “anyone can submit under either category for any reason.”
Billions stars Paul Giamatti, Damian Lewis, Malin Akerman and Maggie Siff.
