Lex Scott Davis stars as Cassidy in the new abc legal drama Rebel.
The legal show is loosely based on the life of executive producer Erin Brockovich. Annie “Rebel” Bello (played by Katey Sagal) is a legal advocate with a twist: she doesn’t have a law degree. Rebel has several children from different marriages creating one large blended family that navigates her fearless spirit together. The unit goes through the challenges of life and having a matriarch committed to changing the world.
Lex Scott Davis plays lawyer Cassidy, one of Rebel’s daughters, on the show. Davis describes Cassidy as vibrant and passionate. Rebel is the actress’s first starring role for primetime television. Her introduction to the art of acting began with her love of dance and local acting classes she took in her hometown of Baltimore, Maryland. The city of Baltimore is where she was introduced to performing beginning dance at the age of three and taking acting classes at the arena playhouse. After studying dance in Philadelphia she transitioned into pursuing acting full time which later led to her first television role as Toni Braxton in the Lifetime film “Unbreak my Heart.”
With the show being loosely based on Erin Brockovich, it will inspire audiences to advocate for change regardless of their credentials. Davis was surprised to learn that Erin wasn’t a real lawyer, but was still able to create an impact within the legal profession. Erin Brockovich’s life story and the new series loosely based on her life Rebel will show that curiosity and the desire for change are the only thing needed to create a lasting impact on the world.
