Yael Stone plays Lorna Morello in Netflix’s Orange Is The New Black, which returns next month.
In hit show, she has a strong accent – a mix of Brooklyn and Boston – but in real life, Yael Stone is an Aussie.
Talking recently in an interview she opened up about the up-coming season.
We finished shooting last November so it’s been a while, but it felt good and exciting. The stories are getting richer. For the third series we’re exploring this issue of faith and what people put their faith in.”
Whilst she stayed quiet on how much of Morello we’ll be seeing in the third series she hinted there would be new inmates joining the already huge cast list.
In a loose way, there’s always joy in finding new faces in and outside the prison and we still delight in the older characters.”
The show was nominated for the International award at this year’s Baftas but lost out to True Detective.
I like our status as rebels. You can’t deny there’s an impact Netflix has made. The original content is world class and it’s a real force. It’s making things people are hungry for and we’re proud to be part of it.”
Anyone who follows the cast on Instagram or Twitter will know they like hanging out socially and for a wild night, Stone says there are a few members you need to tag along with.
I mean Samira Wiley (who plays Poussey Washington) and Dascha Polanco (who plays Dayanara “Daya” Diaz) are the ones who want to dance with. But then you’re going to have fun if you go out with Laverne Cox or Lea DeLaria (who play Sophia and Big Boo) too.”
