Meet Lily Richards of Twenty The Webseries in Hollywood

- VoyageLA

“I feel like I have always had a hard time quantifying success because you are so often taught to look at success in a purely monetary way and when you work in a creative field that is often hard to do, at least when you are first starting out. I find that I try to jump from milestone to milestone as quickly as possible and I am never fully satisfied as I can always see what I can do to improve.”

TWENTY A WEBSERIES TRADES TROPES FOR HONEST BUT HUMEROUS LGBT REPRESENTATION

- Queeks

“The queer community has its own special list of recognizable tropes. Most of our readers are probably most familiar with the “Bury Your Gays” trope, but other familiar queer tropes include queerbaiting, coming out, and finding out one’s queer through infidelity. That’s not to say these storylines aren’t important to the community – they are essential – but they can also limit queer stories.

When writers understand this, when they create stories without confining their female characters to the tropes above, they give their audiences stories that truly represent them – stories like the one Lily Richards tells in Twenty: a Webseries.”

TWENTY | Shifting the Narrative

-HerLaunch Interview

“Lily is a writer, director, and actor of her first hit web-series Twenty, and partner, Caitlin is the head producer of the show. Fellow alums from Emerson College, Lily, and Caitlin aspire to break the LGBTQ stereotypes that exist in media today. After getting cast in multiple projects that were shelved and never released, Lily wanted to attempt to take on a project entirely of her own. Already a writer, an actor and a director, and by her side, Caitlin as a producer, they were off to a strong start.”

“TWENTY THE WEBSERIES” FOLLOWS A CHARMING AND FUNNY LESBIAN AS SHE FINDS HER WAY IN THE WORLD

-Bella Books

“Richards is ridiculously charismatic as Maya, who has just enough awkwardness and self-awareness not to fall into the “lothario lesbian” stereotype. She makes Maya’s uncertainty believable and something that most of us can relate to. She has terrific chemistry with her love interests, and you can’t help but root for her.”
