entitled prepster, whose alt-right leanings are encapsulated by ardent claims that Marta is an “anchor baby” who is out to get his grandfather’s fortune.

Other noteworthy characters include Linda and Richard Drysdale, played by scene-stealers Jamie Lee Curtis and Don Johnson. Linda left her father, Harlan’s publishing company and as a result, started her very own business, but it shouldn't go unnoticed that she did so with a three million dollar loan from her father. A great deal of attention is put into ensuring the viewer that Linda is very proud of her supposed “self-made” wealth, despite its origins. Richard’s hatred for immigrants as a whole is made abundantly clear. Walt, who is Harlan’s son and his wife Donna, similarly both despise Marta because of her being an immigrant and just like Linda, Walt didn’t really start from the ground up, since his father gave him a job in the family business. Arguably, the only two family members, other than Harlan, who for a period of time, are sympathetic towards Marta are Joni, Harlan’s daughter in law, played by a shrewd and sassy Toni Collette and Harlan’s granddaughter, Meg, playing the free-spirited, seemingly open-minded liberal perfectly by Katherine Langford.
