The Politician hits Netflix on Sept. 27, and just like many of Ryan Murphy's projects, it includes a handful of recognisable faces. While Jessica Lange and Gwyneth Paltrow have worked with the showrunner on several different series over the years, Laura Dreyfuss actually got her big break on a hit Murphy show. The 31-year-old actress, who plays one of Peyton's political advisers McAfee, appeared on the final season of Glee.

Not only does Dreyfuss's role on The Politician mark a reunion between her and Murphy, but it also marks her second project with the show's star, Ben Platt. The two previously played love interests in the Broadway musical, Dear Evan Hansen. As you get ready to binge-watch The Politician, learn more about her most notable roles ahead.
