Danielle Brooks Explains Why She Almost Turned Down 'Orange Is the New Black'

Danielle Brooks rose to fame thanks to her work on the hit Netflix series Orange Is the New Black, but she almost didn’t accept the part!

The 27-year-old actress, who plays Taystee, says the nudity on the show almost persuaded her from taking the job.

“To be honest I didn’t know Orange was going to be one of those dream jobs,” Danielle told People. “I almost turned it down in the beginning because there was possibility for nudity, but I’m really glad I didn’t do that.”

“Getting to work with so many incredible women and getting to play this character that has just grown tremendously throughout the season — I just pray for 100 times more chances like this in my career,” she added.

Danielle‘s success on Orange Is the New Black led to her Broadway debut in The Color Purple, which earned her a Tony nomination.
