HOLLYWOOD, CA (Hollywood Daily Star) 2017/6/9 – “I think there’s a vulnerability when you don’t know who you area,” says Orange is the New Black star Taylor Schilling. “Your anchor hasn’t quite dropped, to project yourself on someone else. That is one of the tightest, most explosive bonds I think two people can have. Because Piper does not know who she is, she can create a self in relationship to this woman. It’s almost filling more her need than any desire for partnership. She’s getting something from it.”


Schilling didn’t have high expectations when the series began in 2013 and Netflix streaming was an unknown medium. “I really thought it was like a web series. That was the only thing I had to compare it to. The book was amazing, and Jenji Kohan I was such a fan of. I thought this is an incredible project, but it’s going to be like the equivalent of doing a black box…downtown, off-off-off Broadway. It felt like a play, and I had to have my clothes off.”

Orange is the New Black is the series from Emmy-winner Jenji Kohan about a rag-tag group of female prison inmates. At the end of season 4 Samira Wiley as Poussey was accidentally suffocated by a white prison guard. Guard Bayley (Alan Aisenberg) felt he was just doing his job. When Poussey’s death is covered up it prompts a riot by the inmates.

Dascha Polanco as Daya grabs one of the guard’s guns. The prisoners show their frustrations with how they were treated and retaliate. The entire season is 13 episodes that covers three days. The series has been renewed through season 7 by Netflix.
