“Faking It” casts Yvette Monreal as a “hip, edgy lesbian”

 
 

When we recently chatted with Rita Volk at the MTV VMAs, she hinted there would be new love interests for some Faking It faves, though she wouldn’t say who. But the newly announced casting of Yvette Monreal as “Regan, a hip, edgy lesbian with a rebellious streak” has us thinking Amy might be taking a liking to someone else besides Karma.

The Hollywood Reporter says that Regan is “a cater-waiter by day and DJ by night who is fiercely out and proud and independent with a husky voice and sexy confidence who supports herself and her music career with odd jobs.” Yvette Monreal has previously appeared on MTV’s Awkward and was most recently seen as Senna Galan on Matador. Yvette showed off her new hairstyle for the show on her Instagram.

Also new to the cast is Keith Powers, who will be a love interest for Lauren (Bailey Buntain). Keith will play Theo, “a friend of Liam’s (Gregg Sulkin) who is full of Texas swagger. He’s a laid-back guy’s guy who enjoys working on cars, playing pool and making girls blush.”

But even more exciting: Laverne Cox! The Orange is the New Black star will play “Margot, a Hester High alum and the director of the school’s elite drama club. Demanding, intense, and full of herself, Margot is a big fish in a small pond—in her mind, at least. While holding auditions for the drama club, Margot puts hopefuls through a ghastly series of exercises, all designed to strip them down to their cores.”

What do you think about the new casting additions? Are you worried for Karmy or hopeful Amy will find love with Regan?
