For the majority of its life, The Bold Type has been a forward-thinking and critically lauded show, but one plot in particular sparked debate among fans when Kat Edison began a relationship with a Republican lady. 

The Challenging Republican Story

Nikohl Boosheri, who plays Kat’s love interest Adena El-Amin, has spoken out about the “difficult” backlash-inducing relationship, despite not being part in that story.

“Oh, that’s difficult,” she said to Digital Spy. “I was not present.” Even as Nikohl, I feel like the ex-lover since I’m envious that I’m not there. ‘What the hell?’ I think to myself.

“However, the actors did a great job with a really difficult storyline.” It’s impossible to predict how an audience will react.

“Not every idea is… you know, there’s so many levels to how it’s going to translate in the end.” But I think they did a fantastic job, and it’s not my position to pass judgement on Kat’s other suitors.” 

Aisha Dee, who plays Kat, has previously criticised the plot – despite giving it her all – as well as the absence of diversity behind the scenes, which made the on-screen varied casting less real.

Nikohl made these remarks during a lengthy interview for our Rainbow Crew series, in which she discussed the show’s finale and the implications of portraying a gay Muslim woman on film. 

The Bold Type is available on Freeform in the United States and Netflix in the United Kingdom.
