About a month ago, Kristen Bell walked away from voicing the biracial character Molly Tillerman on Central Park after the first season. She is happy to turn over her role to another actress who can give the show a more accurate portrayal of the character. Raver-Lampman will now play Molly in the second season of the show and the creators are very excited about this change.

You can read Bell’s Instagram post below, where she writes a beautiful message to welcome Raver-Lampman to the cast.

Raver-Lampman’s resume includes playing Allison Hargreeves on the series The Umbrella Academy, Rebecca in A Million Little Things, and Lily Lofton in Jane the Virgin. She also has a talent for musical theatre, obtaining her Bachelor of Arts in Theatre at Marymount Manhattan College in New York. Raver-Lampman has had the opportunity to be a part of the original ensemble cast of Hamilton on Broadway in 2015 and land the starring role of Angelica Schuyler in the first national tour of Hamilton in 2017.

The Virginia native is thrilled to be playing the role of Molly. “Representation is vital and broadens our ability to tell stories…I only hope that my lived experience will enrich Molly’s story and make her even more lovable than she already is,” Raver-Lampman wrote on her Instagram.
