Season 3 of American Gods launched yesterday after a two year hiatus. Rejoining the cast as recurring character Ms World – an incarnation of Mr World – is actress and model Dominique Jackson.

Who is Dominique Jackson in American Gods?

Born 1975, Jackson is a Tobagonian-American actress, author, model and reality television personality. 

Known principally for her leading role of Elektra Abundance on the FX series Pose, Jackson has also appeared in Vogue España.

Dominique Jackson moved to the US in 1990 because of problems in her home country of Trinidad and Tobago, saying “enough was enough”. Jackson is a trans woman.

While living in New York, she experienced homelessness and lived off credit cards for survival. She finally got her Green Card in 2015 and soon afterwards underwent surgery to transition medically.
