Scandal alum Katie Lowes, Orange is the New Black alum Laverne Cox and The Bold Type actress Alexis Floyd have also joined Inventing Anna.

"Joining Julia & Anna in the @Shondaland project are @KatieQLowes as Rachel, a natural born follower whose blind worship of Anna almost destroys her life; @LaverneCox as Kacy Duke, a life coach; and Alexis Floyd as Neff, who street-smart aspiring filmmaker who collides with Anna," Netflix tweeted.
