It’s hard enough to survive in the cutthroat Hollywood setting, so one can only imagine how much harder it is for a transgender person to land roles and get recognition. Laverne Cox shared that she went through her own struggles as she pressed on to realize her dreams at an interview backstage for the 2016 Screen Actors Guild Awards.

Laverne stepped on the red carpet of the SAG Awards on behalf of the “Orange is the New Black” cast.
