From Minnesota to HBO series, Indigenous actor is bringing 'my people and my stories with me'

Isabella Star LaBlanc keeps running into her 17-year-old self.

The 25-year-old actor was reminded of her on a recent visit home to Minneapolis, on a stop by her old high school. But she's been running into her in Iceland, too. There, LaBlanc is filming the next season of "True Detective," playing Leah, the 17-year-old stepdaughter of Jodie Foster's character, Det. Liz Danvers.

Like LaBlanc, her character is Native American. But unlike LaBlanc at that age, she's proud. Confident.
