Bold Italics reports that a new mixed race Asian American character has been added to the cast of the popular Orange is the New Black.
Kimiko Glenn plays Brooke Soso and appears in 8 of the 14 new episodes.
Season 2 was released on Netflix just yesterday.
According to the article, “Brooke Soso could (hopefully!) be a breakthrough for Asian American representation in popular culture. She is an attractive, seemingly “normal” character, and – surprise! – she can speak perfect English! That speaks volumes for how underrepresented Asian Americans are in mainstream media.”
