How to Get Away With Murder” has cast Amy Okuda in a recurring role for Season 2, Variety has learned exclusively.

Okuda was discovered through the 2014 Disney/ABC Diversity Talent Showcase. She starred in YouTube comedy web series “The Guild,” and has guest credits in “The Middle,” “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” and “Californication.” She also appears in an arc in Amazon’s “The Man in the High Castle.”
