There already is. On Supergirl, there’s a character called Nira Nal played by an actual transgender woman, one who won a big lawsuit in Maine in real life.

Interesting. I wonder how the acting profession will handle transgendered roles. Will such roles be reserved for transgendered actors.

Darren Criss, who was so outstanding as Andrew Cunanan in American Crime Story to the point I was shocked he's straight, announced he'll no longer take roles where he plays a gay man because he doesn't want to take a part from a gay person.

I don't suspect we'll see many transgendered roles played by cis actors going forward.
