Here Is What The ‘OITNB’ Cast Looks Like In Real Life


Since 2013 when it first premiered, many people have became obsessed with comedy-drama Orange Is the New Black. Based on Piper Kerman’s memoir, Orange Is the New Black: My Year in a Women’s Prison, which is about her experiences at FCI Danbury, a minimum-security federal prison. There have been five seasons now, and everyone who is a fan already has a favorite character. Here are some of the ladies we see on the show in the real world versus their behind bars characters, as compiled by Diply.

1. Piper Chapman

She is the main character of the series, and most people don’t know how to feel about her. Some don’t mind her, but a lot of people hate her.
