Taylor Schilling Talks Orange Is The New Black Season Five- “It Hits Each Character At A Core Level”
We are so excited for Orange Is The New Black to return in a week from tomorrow, and were thrilled to see a bunch of interviews pop up with various cast members about the new season.
Taylor Schilling, who plays Piper Chapman, and Natsha Lyonne, who plays Nicky Nichols, recently sat down to talk season five.
“It’s an interesting thing to see everyone take up the baton of injustice,” Schilling said of the new season, which picks off right where the shocking fourth season left off. “Take up the baton of how they deal with injustice. Everyone does it in a slightly different way.”
She added that, “The common thread is that everyones deeply invested in it… It hits each character at a core level. And that manifests different behavior. It’s interesting to see. It was fun to watch.”
Check out the above clip where Lyonne also interestingly compares this season to the classic novel Lord Of The Flies.
We, for one, cannot wait to start watching the new season.
