Asia Kate Dillon is a performer, writer and director residing in New York City. Recently cast in the role of Taylor, a non-binary gender identifying character in Showtime's Billions, Dillon is the first non-binary gender identifying actor to ever be cast in a major television series. In addition to Billions, they can be seen playing Brandy Epps in the Netfilx series Orange Is the New Black.
Born and raised in Ithaca, New York, Dillon studied at the American Musical and Dramatic Academy (AMDA) in New York City, graduating from the Studio Program. They then returned to Ithaca to complete the Meisner training program at The Actor's Workshop of Ithaca (Dillon began during their junior year of high school at age sixteen, the youngest student ever admitted to the class). As an active alumni Dillon not only acted with the theatre company, but also served as a teaching assistant and stage manager.
In 2007 Dillon took the titular role of Rachel Corrie in My Name is Rachel Corrie. This role required Dillon to memorize over thirty monologues and play over seven alternate characters over the course of the one person show, which received rave reviews calling Dillon "absolutely magnetic."
Dillon returned to New York City and was chosen from nearly one thousand actors to participate in a Workshop at The Flea Theatre in Manhattan of fifty new plays by Tony and Academy award nominated and winning playwrights and directed by Ed Sylvanus Iskandar. This was followed by a featured lead role as Lucifer in The Mysteries, also directed by Iskandar. Following The Mysteries, Dillon traveled to Washington, D.C. to perform in The Tempest at The Shakespeare Theatre Company.
These strong performances led to television roles in Orange Is the New Black, Master of None, Younger, and Billions. Dillon played the role of Albert Cashier in Good Men Wanted at Dixon Place, which would later host US- an evening of storytelling followed by a talkback of which Dillon is the creator, curator, and director. US puts a magnifying glass to racism in the United States using original and found text, audio and video footage to drive the #BlackLivesMatter conversation forward.
