There aren’t many women with speaking parts on Ballers. The new HBO show stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as a former NFL star turned financial manager for professional football players. He’s doing his best to keep his clients – young, handsome, rich, famous and talented young men – from blowing all their money and getting into trouble in and out of strip clubs.
One of the few female characters that sticks out is Tracy Legette. She pushes the buttons of The Rock’s character, Spencer Strasmore. The sportscaster for a local Miami TV station is portrayed by Arielle Kebbel. The 30-year-old actress is best known for her roles as Lexi Branson on The Vampire Diaries, Vanessa Shaw on 90210, and Lindsay on Gilmore Girls. Ballers airs Sundays at 10pm on HBO.
