“Pose” Cast: The cast of the series is made up of MJ Rodriguez as Blanca Rodriguez; Indya Moore as Angel; Dominique Jackson as Elektra Abundance, Hailie Sahar as Lulu Abundance; Angelica Ross as Candy Abundance; Ryan Jamaal Swain as Damon Richards; Billy Porter as Pray Tell, Dyllon Burnside as Ricky; Evan Peters as Stan Bowes, Patty’s husband; Kate Mara as Patty Bowes, Stan’s wife; James Van Der Beek as Matt Bromley, Stan’s kingpin boss; and Charlayne Woodard as Helena St. Rogers, a modern dance teacher. This show features the largest cast of transgender actors in series regular roles ever.
According to Mother Jones, Janet Mock, who wrote and produced the show, said, “It’s surreal to think that five trans women of color are going to be brought into people’s homes every week for this entire summer. So often trans folks’ stories and narratives are told by people who are not trans and sometimes we’re even embodied by people who are not trans … This show does something radical in that it centers fully the experiences of women who have never necessarily been centered, who often have always been side characters. In that way, it forces an audience to confront their own limitations about who they believe could be heroines of stories.”
