M Lamar emerged to reveal he’s the twin brother of Emmy-nominated actress Laverne Cox on Monday’s edition of the ABC series Claim To Fame.

‘I think she is the most extraordinary person I’ve ever met. She has endured all kinds of insanity and continues to; she continues to stand with so much dignity and pride and go forward and be an inspiration for so many people.’

M Lamar said that the success of Cox, who played Sophia Burset on the Netflix hit, ‘is so much bigger than her,’ noting the many doors she’s opened up with her ascent.

‘The number of Black trans actresses who are on the covers of magazines, who are starring in television shows, all of that did not exist before my sister,’ he said. ‘And I just want to thank her and praise her.’

M Lamar, who grew up in Mobile, Alabama with the Inventing Anna star, made a pair of appearances on Orange Is the New Black in 2013 and 2015, respectively.

He has a background in music and art, as he describes himself in a bio on his website as ‘a composer who works across opera, metal, performance, video, sculpture and installation to craft sprawling narratives of radical becomings.’

Cox took to Instagram with a clip of her twin brother’s appearance on the show, saying she didn’t ‘have words to express what his words’ on the ABC show meant to her’ and that she is ‘immensely blessed’ to have known him her whole life.

She added: ‘My brother’s love, support and counsel are part of the reason I am who I am. And this reaffirms for me that there is a God, a higher power, a blessed energy force bigger than us.’

Cox described her sibling as 'brilliant, talented, charismatic, visionary, revolutionary [and] genius' in a response on Instagram
