‘The reality is we don’t get enough trans people on television, enough transgender stories told and so I think we have a long way to go before we have more of those representatives like Sophia, but I would like to think we are moving in the right direction.’

Cox is also starring in the new series of Orange Is The New Black, which comes back on Netflix on the 6th June.
