Asia Kate Dillon is breaking barriers. As one of the stars of the hit show “Billions,” Dillon has been cast in a role that’s breaking barriers in the high-stakes Wall Street drama steeped in money, power and politics.

  1. I first found out about AKD fron Gen:Lock ; when I did I felt like I finally figured out myself. I guess I had problems trying to find myself for years ; since I was around 10 years old, I liked watching animated movies and shows where the main character is an adolescent male (of course other stuff was good too) ; which made me write fan fiction stories where the protagonist is an adolescent male (not all the stories have human characters) and it would be just them and their single widower fathers ; but my other stories are about girls. I've just been wondering why that stuff.

  2. Congrats, but sorry to tell you that we've always had people in the world struggling with their born identity. The more they swim against the natural current, the deeper and more profound the war within continues. Be at peace. Accept reality. It's all any of us have.

  3. Taylor is such a cold blooded killer, boss of a character on that show. Really mind altering in a lot of ways but in positive ways. I mean the character was just a stone faced killer and a quick witted, principled, resourceful genius. How could it not be mind opening at the least. Great show too.

  4. What a fruit loop. Fine…I identify as a mushroom, no…a tv remote control, no…a truck tire…yeah that’s it! What’s that you say…DNA…oh yeah, I’m still the same gender I was born with, my bad. Fools. Male or female once and for all.

  5. I can never wrap my head around Damian's natural accent. The only major productions I've seen him in he plays American characters. Knowing he's British still doesn't help with the strange sounds coming out of his mouth.

  6. I LOVE the Taylor character! I was born a white male, but lately I identify as a black lesbian. To clarify, I identify as a black woman trapped in a white man's body who is sexually attracted to women.
