Q&A With Laverne Cox From ‘Orange Is The New Black’
A show about women in prison could have easily devolved into mindless titillation or stereotypical boredom. But Netflix’s breakout hit Orange Is The New Black has skillfully avoided either trapping. Instead, viewers are treated to a show with well-thought-out story lines, sharp social commentary, diverse, multi-faceted characters with compelling backgrounds, and stellar performances. One of these standouts is actress Laverne Cox, who captures audiences with her portrayal of transgender prison inmate, Sophia Burset.
