She is portrayed by Georgie Flores.
Cassandra was born to Katheryn Perkins, an actress on a light night soap opera. When her mother received an Emmy for her performance, seven-year-old Cassie fell asleep before Katheryn won and gave her speech. She has regretted it since, despite it wasn't her fault. Her mother died from cancer when she was nine.
Cassandra is Paige's caring friend, and they have supposedly known each other since freshman year. Cassie always dreamed of becoming an actress and went to many auditions without any success. After she convinces Paige to audition for her first time ever, and she gets the part in a huge movie, Cassie is visibly jealous and hurt that Paige was able to get a huge role "so easily" while Cassandra failed. This caused a divide between them that slowly progressed through the season.
Cassie doesn't come from as much money as Paige nor does she have a high-paying acting gig to rely on for tuition, but what Cassie does have is a strong work ethic. Unable to make ends meet as a full-time student, Cassie found a less-than-savory way to pay her bills. However, it's soon revealed that Cassie isn't a sex worker, as was implied -- she's a topless maid. She also pawns everything she owns that may be of any value, including the bracelet that was a gift from Paige.
When Paige finds out about her cash crisis, she confronts her and tries to be supportive, but instead they fight. Cassie tells her that she's upset that Paige just walked into her first ever audition and got the part, when Cassie had been trying for years without any luck. They were able to somewhat fix their relationship after they voiced their thoughts, but Cassie wanted to move out of the apartment and get out of Paige's shadow.
However, Cassie then does very well on an audition for a commercial, and is very happy about it, which seems to suggest that things may be starting to go her way.
