Dame of the Day: Laverne Cox

Laverne Cox

Today’s Dame of the Day is Laverne Cox (May 28, 1984-). While she dabbled in reality television, her big break came as the role of Sophia Burset in the TV series, Orange is the New Black. Her performance earned her an Emmy nomination and a spot on the cover of Time magazine; she is the first openly transgender woman to earn either honor. In addition to acting, Cox is an active advocate of the LGBTQ community.
