After finding Kacy on her Instagram, Anna attended her workshop and bought a $4500 training package. They became fast friends and went on vacations together. Anna’s credit cards would magically stop working during those trips.

But their tumultuous friendship came to a sad end when Anna refused to come clean despite all the help she received from Kacy. Fortunately, the fitness trainer didn’t end up losing too much money when she was frolicking around with the supposed German heiress.

    I like the show Inventing Anna. I saw a few photos of the real woman Kacy Duke and she’s a lovely looking black woman, and I know what I’m about say, especially in today’s climate could be taken as a cop out or some type of an apology incase I’m hurting anyones feelings but anyone who reads this doesn’t know my heart so…. anyways I was just curious as to why a transgender person was cast to play the part of a person who was born a female., I just wish I could talk to the powers to be of a very well put together series to have an adult conversation about what’s become a serious subject in society…..

      Cis (meaning not trans) actors have been playing trans people since the very first portrayals. They win awards for it regularly while trans folks can barely get roles as trans people. I think you can get over a fantastic trans actress play a cis person. They’re both women.

    What’s the big deal? Women have played men and vice versa. Get over yourself.

      Payden, I agree with you. The transgender actress did not portray the non trans character very well.
