The MarketWatch Q&A: Laverne Cox: ‘I could cry right now thinking that I’ve paid off my student loans’

“Orange Is The New Black” star Laverne Cox got emotional when she was finally able to pay off her student loan debt.

“I could cry right now thinking that I’ve actually paid off my loans,” Cox tells MarketWatch at a Pride event in New York City.

The 47-year-old actress and LGBTQ advocate was barely making minimum wage working as a waitress while going on auditions before landing her breakthrough role playing Sophia Burset in the Emmy award-winning Netflix NFLX, +1.98% prison-set dramedy “Orange is the New Black.”

Cox was the first transgender person to make the cover of ‘Time’ magazine.
