Actress Alysia Reiner

Summer Rayne Oakes interviews actress Alysia Reiner, best known for playing warden Natalie Figueroa on Netflix’s original series Orange is the New Black.

Reiner talks about her method of getting into character, comparing it to raising children in that one needs to be “willing to keep on wondering about your child… and with your character, the same… ‘I wonder who you are.'” She says that she will “experience something, and then I sort of digest it to see how it relates to this character.” She also mentions the roles she won’t take, including “a killer” or “someone whose spouse has been killed.”
