Taryn Manning on OITNB's Third Season: 'Buckle Up'!
Here’s what the 36-year-old actress had to share:
On her hit show Orange is the New Black: “I definitely am so grateful to be a part of a show like Orange, which has die-hard fans everywhere I turn. However, for shows to succeed, it requires the talent and passion from every department. That means makeup, costume, lighting, editing, and even catering, plus everything in between. Energy is contagious and I feel like the viewers catch the energy we feel on set, and that’s what sets us apart. I am very thrilled for the success and grateful for all the hardworking, talented people involved in our production.”
On portraying kidnapping victim and survivor Michelle Knight in Lifetime’s Cleveland Abduction: “Not only did I research Michelle, I really began to study the psychology behind both a victim and perpetrator of abuse. I wanted to be able to take this amazing story of survival and portray it in a way that general society could comprehend. No one can ever properly relive such hardship on a source used for entertainment. However, once becoming Michelle’s friend, it became my moral duty to have the audience realize that this isn’t a story about a victim, [but] rather a story of a true survivor. In my opinion, I think Michelle wants people to know that no matter the situation, big or small, we all can survive by having faith.”
On last words for Orange is the New Black fans: “Just buckle up and get ready for the ride. You don’t know where a rollercoaster takes you until it drops!”
