I've watched half the series - it's really great and surprisingly light-hearted. I was surprised to find it's based on a true story. You keep expecting violence or something nasty to happen but it always ends up leaving you with a smile (Wentworth Prison this is not!).
How many of you realised Red was played by the captain of Star Trek: Voyager - actress Kate Mulgrew?
It's an amazing transformation!
Great to see Natasha Lyonne get another great role FINALLY years after American Pie. Somehow, i don't think she's acting much!
Lyonne was arrested in August 2001 for driving under the influence of alcohol after she ran her rented automobile onto a Miami Beach sidewalk, hitting a road sign and causing minor damages. In August 2002 she pleaded guilty to drunk driving and paid $1,000 in fines and court fees, performed 50 hours of community service, took part in a victim's panel organized by Mothers Against Drunk Driving, was placed on probation for one year and had her license suspended for that same period. In 2003 she was evicted by her landlord, actor Michael Rapaport, following numerous complaints by other tenants about her behavior.In December 2004, Lyonne was arrested after verbally threatening her neighbor, breaking a mirror in the neighbor's apartment, and threatening to molest the neighbor's dog. She spent a night in jail before being arraigned on charges of criminal mischief, harassment, and trespassing
Of course Jason Biggs is great and Taylor Schilling is very winning and adorable. Taryn Manning is unrecognisable as the grungy "Christian", too!
