Natasha Lyonne, Orange is the New Black


Natasha Lyonne is nervous she's going to get in trouble one of these days while shooting Orange Is the New Black.

Lyonne, who plays the lady-loving Nicky Nichols on the hit Netflix series, says she has to watch her mouth.

"I make a lot of really filthy comments throughout the sex scenes that I feel like maybe aren't helpful in terms of calming the other person," Lyonne said of the more NSFW moments on the show when we caught up with her at HBO's Emmys party. "But it helps me to have a...filthy mouth to get me in the mood. I don't know if that's necessarily beneficial to the other actors, maybe selfish of me."

Danielle Brooks, Orange is the New Black


We also got to chat with Danielle Brooks, who plays Taystee.

"Taystee is very close to my heart," Brooks said. "I feel like people can relate to her. She loves really hard. She's just trying to make it. We've all been there, where we're just trying get on our feet."

As expected, Brooks was tightlipped about what's to come in season two. "Better, better and more better," she said with a big laugh. "The writing is even stronger. And you're going to see more of Taystee and Crazy Eyes (Uzo Aduba) because we've been made series regulars."

Cannot wait!
