Per usual in Shondaland, details on Okuda’s part are being kept under wraps.
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.”
“HTGAWM” marks a Shondaland reunion of sorts for Okuda, as she guest starred in one episode of “Grey’s Anatomy” during its 10th season.
She joins a recurring roster, which includes “The Vampire Diaries” alum Kendrick Sampson; “Supernatural’s” Matt Cohen, who will play Levi, a sexy, edgy, working-class guy; plus “X-Men” and “Taken’s” Famke Janssen, who will play a brilliant defense attorney who takes her job very seriously.
Okuda is repped by the Kohner Agency & Authentic Talent and Literary Management.
The second season of “How to Get Away With Murder” premieres on Sept. 24.
