I really hope Lexi gets close with Renee and Jasmine. I really hope Lexi doesn’t feel left out of the OG cast. I really hope fans are as good and kind to Lexi as they’ve been to Pippa. I really hope Lexi isn’t treated differently just because she has some big shoes to fill. I really hope Lexi isn’t compared to Pippa. I really hope people take Lexi as she is. I really hope people trust Lin’s and Tommy’s judgement in choosing Lexi to make her debut as Eliza. I really hope people allow Lexi to play Eliza like Lexi, not like Pippa or Carleigh. I just really hope Lexi gets to enjoy what she’s evidentially worked really hard to achieve.
“Daveed thinks that seeing a black man play Jefferson or Madison or Washington when he was a kid in Oakland might have changed his life. ‘A whole lot of things I just never thought were for me would have seemed possible,’ he says.”
