Actress Kimiko Glenn has become a popular topic on the Internet and with entertainment insiders for her role on the Netflix show "Orange Is the New Black" in which she plays Brook Soso, the Asian prison inmate.
Rumours about the show suggest that she is one of the more narcissitic individuals on the show and completely different from the Asian character Chang who during last season was portrayed as a strange woman who could barely speak English, rarely spoke and was both unattractive and asexual.
Kimiko Glenn's character Brook Soso unlike Chang is a talkative, unreserved liberal whose personality is such that many on the show want to punch her.
Of the 14 episodes of the second season of the show Brook Soso is seen in eight episodes and for many viewers she represents a pleasant break from the sterotypical Asian character who has a limited understanding of English or life in America.
With the drama and tension that is bound to ensue between Brook Soso and other inmates such as Piper, an inmate whose personality will clash with Kimiko Glenn's character, it is likely that Asian viewers will be drawn to this show because her character is treated as a normal individual who happens to be Asian-American.
Some entertainment insiders are predicting that by the end of the second series she will be one of the new stars that emerges because the environment is ideal for an actress on the rise to steal one or more scenes in this popular prison drama and leave a memorable impression with viewers and filmmakers.
A new star is likely to emerge from the second season of "Orange Is the New Black" and considering the buzz that is surrounding her appearance on the show many suspect that Kimiko Glenn and her character Brook Soso are names that will be known throughout the entertainment industry and with fans by the end of season 2 of the show.
