|Taylor - Asia Kate Dillon|
It is a story about wealth, influence and corruption. Played by Paul Giamatti (Chuck Rhodes, Federal Prosecutor, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York) and Damian Lewis (Bobby Axelrod, billionaire, ambitious, owner/manager of the hedge fund, Axe Capital). There are lots of side stories one being with the prosecutor's wife (Wendy Rhodes) working at the hedge fund as a psychiatrist, in-house performance coach. Plus lots of other characters; friends and foes. The twist and turns are many.
The most interesting person this season is Asia Kate Dillon as Taylor Amber Mason. A non-binary analyst at Axe Capital, who becomes close to Bobby and is appointed CIO of Axe Capital. Taylor character is usually the smartest person in the room.
Taylor is widely considered to be the first non-binary character on mainstream North American television.
I DID SOME RESEARCH INTO NON-BINARY, AND I JUST THOUGHT, ‘OH MY GOSH,’ LIKE, ‘THAT’S ME...THAT’S WHO I AM,’”The rumor has it that SHOWTIME has put Asia Kate Dillon in for an Emmy nomination. They deserve it.
