Orange Is the New Black star Laverne Cox will not only have her very own wax figure at Madame Tussauds’ but she will also be the first transgender celebrity to have such an honour.
One small snag for is that it will be be in their San Francisco Museum.
Cox’s figure will be revealed during a San Francisco Pride press conference on June 26 and will be on display at the exhibit in Fisherman’s Wharf.
In a statement from the San Jose Mecury News, Cox expressed a great deal of gratitude when talking about her achievement saying,
“I am so deeply honoured to have been asked to be a part of the Madame Tussauds legacy…I hope that this will be a source of inspiration for everyone who encounters it to believe that their dreams matter and are possible.”
