“Billions” is Back This Week for a Final Season, And the Biggest Change is Condola Rashad’s Shortened First Name in the Credits


Fans of “Billions” love the character Kate Sacker, played by Condola Rashad.

For seven seasons Rashad has played Sacker with a great pedigree. She’s been nominated four times for Tony Awards. Her mother is Tony and Emmy winning Phylicia Rashad, her father is sportscaster and former NFL star, Ahmad Rashad.

But there’s a big change I noticed in the opening credits of the seventh and final season of “Billions.” Condola is now calling herself “Dola.”

“Dola” is what she’s been using for her music career. I guess with “Billions” ending, we’ll be seeing the emerging Dola on the music scene. I just hope Condola gets back to the stage soon. She’s a terrific actress!

As for Kate Sacker, we’ll have to wait and see what her fate is on “Billons.” Season 7 drops on August 8th.
