Dascha Polanco has been promoted to a series regular for season three of Netflx/Lionsgate’s Orange is the New Black. Polanco, repped by Gersh and Shirley Grant Management, has appeared in virtually every episode of the hit dramedy’s first two seasons playing ‘jailbird sweetheart’ Dayanara Diaz. She can be seen in the upcoming Adam Sandler dramedy, The Cobbler.
In another Season 3 promotion, Nicole Gale Anderson is now a regular on the CW’s Beauty & the Beast where she plays the sister of Catherine (Kristin Kreuk). Anderson actually started off as a regular in the pilot, though the role was made a recurring after it was picked up to series. While recurring on BATB, Anderson landed a lead in the ABC Family’s Pretty Little Liars spinoff Ravenswood. When that show was cancelled after one season, Anderson, repped by Paradigm and the Marshak/Zachary Co., planned to take time off but was invited to return to BATB as a recurring and was quickly upped to a regular.
