ABC hires its first non-binary actor for a lead role in crime TV series

The new Big Sky regular landed the role of  Jerrie Kennedy; a kidnapping victim who is an aspiring musician, sex worker, and also happens to be non-binary.

Jesse’s (she/them) importance to the show is made clear during the pilot as they are the first character to be attacked and, later, also kidnapped.

Speaking to The Advocate, the actor explained that the character originally had a different outline. Before redrafting the role, Keitel’s character was a “cis gay man who dressed in drag to turn tricks at the truck stop.” The character took a bit of reshaping before it reached its current version.
