Appearing Monday on HuffPost Live, transgender actress Hari Nef said that she hopes to see more trans individuals telling their own stories on film and television.

The 23-year-old Nef currently appears on the second season of Amazon's Transparent, which revolves around the Pfefferman family and the later-in-life coming out transgender of a parent.

“I feel like the clock is ticking in terms of how long can these studios and these producers really get away with casting cis people in trans roles when like, I'm here. Laverne [Cox]'s here. Trace Lystt's here. Alexandra Billings is here,” Nef said. “We're all here – and we're trans. We can come to set with years, months of lived experience that a cis actor would have to study for months and months and months.”

“Yes, Jeffrey Tambor kill this role [in Transparent]. Eddie Redmayne's a great actor and is fabulous in The Danish Girl, and I feel like these are roles that are being given to great actors. But, at the end of the day, trans people deserve the opportunity to tell our own stories, and I hope moving forward we can see more of these castings,” she added.

Nef is also a model and an author who writes a sex advice column for Adult Mag.
