The 26-year-old Orange Is the New Black actress, who is currently starring on Broadway in the Tony-winning musical The Color Purple, was on her way from New York City to Los Angeles for an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
“I hate when gate agents look at me like I’ve never flown first class and say ‘You’re in first class, lucky you!’😒 really tho,” Danielle tweeted.
Danielle was nominated for a Tony Award for her performance in The Color Purple, but lost to Hamilton‘s Renee Elise Goldsberry.

During the event, Laura answered a question about her character Alex and Taylor‘s character Piper possibly ending up together.
“There will never be any settling down for Alex and Piper, which is why it’s such a fun relationship to watch,” Laura said (via EW). “It’s just one of those things where you really can’t control where your heart goes. They love each other and they hate each other, and they manipulate each other and they help each other when they need it, but the thing that’s so great is that it’s always grounded in the reality that they do ultimately love each other. You’re always kind of rooting for them because of that genuine love.”
