  • Lea DeLaria has landed a recurring role on the upcoming drama starring Abigail Spencer. She previously appeared in all seven seasons of Netflix's Orange Is the New Black.
  • She will play Queenie, the crowned matriarch of The Banished Brawlers. She has played an integral part in the rise of the Bang-A-Rang, the chaotic burlesque club the gang is known for.

And when Doris (Spencer) makes her return as Katherine Harlow, many of those secrets will threaten to be unearthed.

Having lived through multiple horrific wars in his homeland, he is a world-weary man who is dedicated to preventing the eruption of war again.
