As the season 4 of Orange Is The New Black kicks off on Netflix, we know there are butt-loads of surprises and awesomeness coming our way. The ladies from Litchfield surely know how to get past prison security and get through interesting things during their stay.
But there are a few things that even the biggest OITNB fans have no idea about. After doing some research, we found out some of the rarely known facts about the series. Did you know it was based on a true story and the show was inspired by a book written by an actual prison inmate? Probably not. But if that fact blew your mind, check out some more facts about your favorite Netflix series.
That is the real Piper Chapman, btw.
It could be due to the phone slots given to the same inmate during Piper's phone slot. Or the production company found it easier to shoot for a few phone scenes at one time.
The exact location would be Orangeburg Road, in the hamlet of Orangeburg, in the town of Orangetown.
During the shooting for OITNB, Lauren divorced her husband of 2 years and started dating Samira Wiley (Poussey).
They play the role of mother and daughter, but the daughter (Dascha) is only 2 years younger to the mother (Elizabeth) in real life.
But since the audience and the show producers loved her character so much, they decided to keep her on for longer.
But due to her personality suiting the character of Alex Vause better, she was selected as Alex.
She did one time overdose on drugs and had to get operated on her heart.
M Lamar, who is Laverne Cox's twin brother, played her role before the transition in the series.
