Asia Kate Dillon Talks Emmys, ‘Hypermasculinized’ World of ‘Billions’

Asia Kate Dillon Talks Emmys, ‘Hypermasculinized’ World of ‘Billions’
“What do the words ‘actor’ and ‘actress’ mean to you regarding the awards?” “Billions” star Asia Kate Dillon recalled asking the Television Academy when they were deciding whether to submit under supporting actor or supporting actress for this year’s Emmy Awards.

Dillon, who identifies as gender non-binary (using the pronouns they, their, and them) and plays a non-binary character on the hit Showtime drama, eventually chose to submit in the supporting actor category after learning from the Television Academy that “any performer can enter either category for any reason.” Dillon, who plays Taylor Mason, a financial genius who becomes a potent weapon for Damian Lewis’ hedge fund king Bobby Axelrod, also mentioned a definition they learned for the term “actor,” which, in the late 1500s was often referenced as a non-gender and non-sex word.

“I’ve been aware of binaries in awards systems since I’ve been aware of awards ceremonies,” Dillon

SkavArt asks:

Earlier in the year you commented that it was “a nonsense” that only privately educated actors were becoming dominant in acting. Don’t you feel that, due to the lack of funding in all the arts, such as the removal of grants and increase course fees, that it’s becoming less diverse? That there isn’t the healthy mix of students from different backgrounds that there once was?

You're right, we have to protect against lack of diversity. If theatre, film, TV, dance, opera, ballet are going to remain true artforms, they must be reflective of all society.
