Based on her body of work, Uma Thurman was born to play Lenny, a tough, take-no-prisoners kind of woman on Imposters

How did an Academy Award nominated actress land on a brand new Bravo series? Well, Uma's been friends with Adam Brooks, who created the show along with Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce star Paul Adelstein, for years. 

In an interview with The Daily Dish, the actress reveals she's known the showrunner since she was 17. "Adam was the first friend I ever made when I moved to New York as a teenager. When Adam made the first installment of Imposters...I had a dinner party for him to show the pilot to his friends and just to celebrate. And that night he suggested that what if he were to write me a part, so he did."

While we were only introduced to Lenny in the last few minutes of episode three, we can expect to see more arm-breaking badassery next week. Inbar Lavi, who plays con artist Maddie Jonson said it was surreal to film scenes with her. "I don't remember much other than just how incredible it was and felt like there was electricity everywhere in the room."

Rob Heaps who plays frazzled husband Ezra Bloom unfortuantely doesn't have any scenes with Uma but came on set anyway, just to meet her. "I wasn't in that day, but I went because, I've just got to see this," he told The Daily Dish. "And it was just amazing. She's really special." 

Is Lenny Cohen connected to "The Doctor" that Maddie and her team keep mentioning? Is Lenny working for Maddie or against her? Who are we supposed to be rooting for, anyway?! So many questions and hopefully these will get answered when the season two premiere of Imposters airs Sunday, April 22 at 9 E/P!
