‘Tulsa King,’ created by Taylor Sheridan for Paramount+, is an intriguing blend of crime drama and Western elements. The series is set in the titular town and follows Dwight “The General” Manfredi, a former mafia capo from New York who is recently released from prison. Dwight arrives in Tulsa with the intention of forming his own criminal empire. The third episode of the series takes some time for world-building and introduces the notorious biker gang known as Black McAdam and their member, Roxy. However, given Roxy’s peculiar background, viewers must be curious to learn more about the character and the actress who plays her. In that case, here is everything we have gathered on Roxy from ‘Tulsa King.’ SPOILERS AHEAD!
Who is Roxy?
Roxy first appears in the third episode of ‘Tulsa King,’ titled ‘Caprice.’ Her real name is Rochelle Harrison. However, she is affectionally called by her nickname, “Roxy.” In the episode, Stacy and the ATF are forced into a standoff with a man named Dumont. The man locks himself up inside a house. After realizing that he cannot escape, Dumont kills himself in an explosion that destroys the house. Following Dumont’s death, Stacy investigates Dumont’s known associates, including Caolan Waltrip.
Waltrip is the leader of a local one-percenter biker gang known as Black McAdam. The crew is filled with notorious criminals such as Waltrip, Pike, and Dumont. Roxy is also a member of the gang. However, she is drastically different from the other members. While the other crew members have several criminal charges in their records, Roxy is actually a decorated former US military soldier. She served three trips in Afghanistan and is an ammunition expert. Therefore, Roxy’s association with Black McAdam is surprising. Furthermore, she is the member that Waltrip trusts the most. Hence, Roxy is definitely a complex and intriguing character we will learn more about in the upcoming episodes.
