Orange Is the New Black's Taylor Schilling: Everybody Is a Breath Away from Prison

Taylor Schilling looks gorgeous for the cover of Boston Common magazine‘s May/June issue celebrating “Women of Influence.”

Here is what the 29-year-old Orange Is the New Black actress had to share with the mag:

On what to expect from season two of her show: “The thing that I love about this show is the idea that everybody is kind of a breath away from prison. None of us are angels, and looking back at my past I think, My God, I can’t believe I got away with that,” she says. “It’s like the what-if scenario gets played out every episode of the show. This season that happens a lot more clearly with a lot more of the characters, so we really get to see where people are coming from and why they’re there and what happened to them.”

On how she relates to her character: “She makes a lot of sense to me. I always think there’s that negotiation between what you think you need to be for the outside world and what your own honest experience is. I certainly think I’m on that quest myself; I relate to that. She has to figure out how to play by her own rules. That’s an interesting journey people go on whether or not they’re in prison. That’s kind of what life is about.”

On dropping out of NYU: “I had nothing lined up when I left school, I just knew that NYU wasn’t making sense to me anymore. I felt done. And it was scary to leave, but it felt like following my gut, my intuition.”
