The new Netflix show, helmed by Riverdale showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and streaming worldwide later this month is to include a character Susie Putnam, who uses gender-neutral pronouns and is played by the non-binary actor Lachlan Watson.Representation of non-binary people is however still largely lacking on TV, so this role is very important for Watson, they treat it very responsibly. “I dived in head first and some of the conversations [with Aguirre-Sacasa] were just about my thoughts on gender and my personal life and my transition, very strange transition as it was, and kind of the person that I’ve become,” the actor told Syfy Wire, “And I almost feel like he was vetting me a little bit to see if I can hold my own in an interview later on. I think he was sort of like: ‘How well can you speak on gender? Are you willing to do it for the rest of your life?’”. The actor added that Susie is a typical non-binary teen what believes they know who they are, what to do and how top live, but in fact they are only on the way to understand it.
