Taylor and Laverne both praised the show for dealing and echoing the real issues that is going on in today’s time.

“There’s a ripple effect and in our case it allows for the audience to see people who may be outside of their sexuality, race, socioeconomic status, size, gender or many number of things and see how it relates to them,” Taylor said. “I think crossing those lines is a political act, but that’s not the genesis of it.”

“It has us constantly thinking beyond ourselves because the stakes are so high,” Laverne said.

Season 5 of OITNB is set to premiere on Netflix on June 9.
