Get To Know Dash & Lily's Troy Iwata! (Exclusive)

Troy Iwata can be seen in the new Netflix holiday series Dash & Lily!

The actor plays Langston, Lily’s (Midori Francis) gay older brother, who is romantic, impulsive, and just a little immature. Having dropped out of college after experiencing his first heartbreak, he’ll happily give his sister advice on boys, but could stand to take some advice himself.

Langston is half Japanese, and playing the role has implored Troy to learn more about his own Japanese background.
