How are the Children Cast of Orange is the New Black Today

BY Evil Jenji

One of the main assets of Orange is the New Black, it is without a doubt the cast. It must have been one of the most difficult stages in the production of the series, because besides the cast being numerous, some actors have shown it in two or three stages of its history. I’ve tried counting the number of actors on Orange is the New Black more than once, but I’ve always given up after the hundredth actor. This week I brought together some of the little actors from the series to show them how they are today! It was a very difficult task to find information. What I found is here. Many of them continue their artistic career, others not so much. It’s beautiful to see children growing up, some are even adults. I hope you like it, it took work to search. My dream is to be able to interview many of them. But it is a very time-consuming job due to intense professional commitments. I’ve been pretty busy this week too, but I would never leave you without a new post! so with you, see how our children are growing!
