We’re still sad about the way things turned out for Lawrence and Issa during last night’s season finale of Insecure. We’re also a wee bit (okay, very) angry at the prospect of Tasha the bank teller possibly being his new lady. However, we’re excited for what the future holds for the series, which has proven to have some really great writing. We’re also excited to see more of DomiNque Perry, who plays Tasha, the flirtatious bank teller who finally gets Lawrence in her bed by the end of the finale. But who is the beauty? After doing some digging, we were able to find out a few things about the model and actress. Get to know more about Perry:

Jet Beauty of the Week

In 2012 (the week of October 22), Perry was featured as JET‘s Beauty of the Week. When explaining why she was happy to be the Beauty of the Week, Perry told the publication, “I’ve wanted to be a part of JET since I was younger. It’s an all-American dream for a young lady to be a JET Beauty of the Week. It embodies class to me and I’ve always aspired to be a part of that.”

She’s From Houston

She may be doing big things in Hollywood now, but the beauty is an H-Town girl. It only makes sense that she was happy to take a picture with Tina-Knowles Lawson at the L.A. premiere of Insecure. Solange Knowles is the music consultant for the show.

She Will Appear on Underground

I won’t give you all of the tea on her character, but Perry is set to appear in Season 2 of the hit WGN America series when it premieres next year.

GROWTH| (2014) Get Hard role of "Shonda" #growth

A post shared by DomiNque Perry (@dominquep) on

She Was in Get Hard

She played the character of Shonda in the film Get Hard, which starred Kevin Hart and Will Ferrell. It was her first film to be shown in theaters. Shonda was the love interest of Ferrell’s character, James. She was also quite the talented twerker in the film.

She Dances

We’re not sure of her full dance background, but Perry used to be captain of the cheerleading squad in high school. She shared video on her page of her dancing for fun and also practicing routines to dance for Ne-Yo at the BET Awards. She has some smooth moves!

She Has a Crush on Tristan Wilds

Not only did she make him her MCM on Instagram recently, but Perry also said in an early career interview that both Wilds and Michael Ealy are her favorite actors — and pretend husbands.

Born Again Virgin — She Was on the Show

She hasn’t had the chance to show it on Insecure just yet, but Perry is pretty funny. You can figure that out for yourself when you follow her on Instagram. But if you’re a fan of the TV One show Born Again Virgin, I’m sure you spotted her playing the role of a girl named Splendid, working the window of a fast-food joint while also hustling as a booty model on the side.

She Loathes Socks

Random, we know, but it was an interesting bit of information Perry shared with Beats and Lyrics Magazine. As she put it, “I hate socks. I have always never worn socks since I was little. My mother would send me to school with socks on and I would snatch them off. I don’t own not one pair of socks. I think they feel sooo nasty!”

Her Favorite Show Is Probably Your Favorite

We told you that Perry is pretty funny, and she had the chance to have an important role on the HBO comedy Insecure. It’s no surprise that her favorite show is a classic comedy. She told Beats and Lyrics that her favorite show is Martin. According to her, it “never gets old.”

People Say She Looks Like Taraji

Not only do people say she somewhat resembles Taraji P. Henson, but Perry must agree because she does comical impressions of the actress via Dubsmash on Instagram.
