Laverne Cox Rocks Orange Is the New Black

The Netflix dramedy set in a women's prison is credited for creating more fresh and diverse female characters than all the network shows combined, but the series is also a big step forward for the transgender community. Cox, who plays trans hairdresser Sophia Burset in the series, says she plays a "multi-dimensional character that the audience can really sympathize with" — a first for mainstream television.
