Newcomer Elliot Fletcher will portray Noah, a recurring transgender character, in the upcoming third season of MTV's Faking It.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Fletcher was picked following a nationwide casting call on YouTube for trans actors and actresses.

Noah is “charismatic, confident and hip and is equal parts charming and vulnerable,” The Hollywood Reporter wrote of the character. “He is the the boy next door with a leather jacket and a rock 'n' roll attitude who plays guitar or bass for a band that competes in a battle of the bands contest.”

Faking It, which features gay, straight, bisexual and intersexed characters, will have its diversity boosted with the addition of Noah.

GLAAD, which worked with the show's producers in developing the character, said that Fletcher will first appear in the show's fourth episode. Season 3 of Faking It premiers Tuesday, March 15 on MTV.
