Samira Wiley Talks 'Orange is the New Black' & Her New Found Fame to 'Maniac Magazine'

Samira Wiley gets wild and fun for the cover of Maniac magazine’s October 2014 issue.

Here’s what the 27-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On wanting to be an actress: “I’ve known I wanted to be an actress my whole life. As long as I’ve known that acting was a thing that existed and you could get paid to do it, I wanted to do it.”

On her new found fame: “You know, I always loved talking to people, and just being out in the world and getting someone to like me through my own personality.”

On the appeal of Orange is the New Black: “Because of the way the show’s episodes are released all at once on Netflix, people can decide how they want to consume it, which gives them a sense of ownership over it.”
