Josie Totah is Lexi, the most popular girl and cheerleader in Bayside. She is as loved as she feared. Her other credits include The Other Two, Champions and No Good Nick.
During Peacock's TCA summer press tour, Totah stated, "Obviously, it's very rare to be just a transgender role on screen. There's almost no representation of people in the trans community. As a young trans girl, I feel like I've never seen myself and never really felt accepted by the world. "
The trans actress called the role an "incredible opportunity," especially since Lexi's identity isn't all about being transgender. "My character is so much. She's in the theater, she's like evil. She's the popular girl in school," added Totah. "But she's just transgender."
