hype intensifies as spoilers about season 3 emerge online.
One difference that the audience must look forward to is Laura Prepon’s full time exposure as Alex Vause. Prepon was mostly absent in season 2 as she hid from Kubra Balik after testifying against him. Now, Piper Chapman’s drug dealing ex-girlfriend is set to appear in all episodes of the next season.
“The fact remains that I want to do Orange, and it’s a matter of trying to balance different aspects of your career,” Prepon shares.
“Unfortunately, there was not two of me… I tried to do as many Oranges as I could. For season 3, I’ve already handled it so it’s not going to be a problem.”
The former “That 70’s Show” actress also told Entertainment Weekly that Alex’s character fits her like a glove.
One of the most intriguing scenes she’s now working on is her intimate moment with Taylor Schilling who plays the part of Chapman. During the 2014 Critics’ Choice TV awards, Prepon gave E! News a slight hint about the experience as she shared, “Honestly, Taylor and I are so comfortable with each other — Thank God!”
She went on to say, “All the women on the show are different shapes, sizes, colors and creed — everything! You really embrace who you are, your curves and everything,”
“So if anything on this show, it’s the most comfortable I’ve ever been because all of us just really embrace who we are. It’s wonderful.”
also revealed that Dominican-American actress Dascha Polanco who plays Dayanara Diaz on the show would be reappearing in next season, along with Yael Stone also known as Lorna Morello, Samira Wilet as Poussey Washington, and Adrienne Moore as Black Cindy.
Rumors say that Oscar winner Mary Steenburgen will be part of the next season, but no official statement regarding her role has been made yet.
Orange Is The New Black Season 3 is expected to be released in early 2015.
