Interview with one of the Inmates of the OITNB Opening!

By Evil Jenji

Today I would like to bring you a short interview with one of the inmates who participated in the opening of Orange is the New Black. I’ve always been curious to see the series from the point of view of those portrayed in the series.

She contacted me on Instagram, and I loved it! It’s not easy to get any kind of feedback from the people who participated in the Series, I never quite understood why, but that’s how it happens most of the time. Surprisingly, some are extremely friendly and committed. I came to like some characters, because I came to like the person who plays!

We’re going to call our inmate Mel, and she’s not in prison anymore. Her answers have not been edited. They are exactly as she was answered.
