Because Friday (March 14) night’s PaleyFest panel for “Orange Is The New Black” was preceded only by a three-minute clip package, there was a reduced window for the show’s stars to make their way from the Cool Kids’ side of the red carpet over to the hinterlands. 

Since I was in the hinterlands, I only got to chat with Danielle Brooks and Yael Stone. [I also talked to Kate Mulgrew and Natasha Lyonne, but mostly they talked to each other.] Fortunately, I love Taystee and Morello.

You’ve already seen my 11 Things We Learned From the 'Orange Is The New Black' PaleyFest Panel post, perhaps?

Up first for my video interviews is Brooks, who teases that this season she finally got to learn the difference between Taystee and Tasha (her character’s real name). She also discusses her first fan moment.

Check out the Brooks interview above.

I’ll post Stone and the Mulgrew/Lyonne frivolity later.

And remember: “Orange Is The New Black” returns to Netflix on June 6.
