Alexandra Grey Cast in Guest Role on CBS’s Doubt

Red Carpet - 27th Annual GLAAD Media Awards
Alexandra Grey.

CBS has cast Alexandra Grey in the sixth episode of its new legal drama Doubt, starring Katherine Heigl and Laverne Cox. Grey, who is transgender, will play Delilah, a working-class transgender woman who’s been treated poorly her whole life. She’s been suppressing her pain and anger and struggling to accomplish normal day-to-day tasks, and one night she finds herself in the wrong place at the wrong time and is accused of assaulting a Major League Baseball player. The fact that a trans actress will play a trans character likely comes as a relief to many following a recent controversy involving the casting of cisgender actor Matt Bomer to play a transgender sex worker in the upcoming film Anything.

Grey has played transgender women on Transparent and Code BlackDoubt will premiere in mid-season, but no date has been announced.
