Dear fans of Trenton, Thank you so much for your love and support. You cared, so I cared more. When in doubt, you lifted me up and clarified that representing an Iranian-American Muslim woman on screen makes a positive impact. I’m thankful I had the opportunity to reflect a hugely underrepresented identity in a nuanced story that remains terrifyingly relevant to our times. Playing a character who was good, principled, strong but silent, and then ultimately pinned for a ma s sive terrorist attack makes me want to hurl. What a comment on how easily a trap it is to equate brown and Iranian with terror. It’s a sickness, kill it with kindness. Please be kind to your neighbor. So much love to @khanflesh as my ride or die. Stay tuned for our 1000 spin-offs: ep. 265 “Mobley and Trenton hack the Ether” FOR MORE “nuanced, terrorist” work, follow me as #arthiepremkumar on Netflix’s GLOW ! ! ! I love you and I love America!
