Cherry Jones on getting married and playing a lesbian feminist in Season 2 of “Transparent”

Out actress Cherry Jones has played The President, Eleanor Roosevelt and Sister Aloysius, but her new role is one queer women can especially appreciate. In Season 2 of Transparent, Cherry plays a women’s studies professor based on legendary lesbian poet Eileen Myles. We spoke with the Tony Award-winning actress about getting called for the part and the great news that she just married actress Sophie Huber this summer. (We’re the first to know!)

Transparent Season 2 premieres on December 11th on Amazon.
