New Taylor Schilling interview with ‘The Hollywood Reporter’

Here’s a new interview of Taylor Schilling with THR

From THR

Below, THR spoke with the women who were left standing in the finale about what they think could happen when they return to set in July to film the sixth season.

Taylor Schilling – Piper Chapman

What was going through your head? “There’s nothing really off limits or formulaic to what we’re doing. [Before Poussey’s death and Wiley’s exit], we had this sense that we were sort of doing this on our own. There was a sense of invincibility. It really brought home that there’s an end to this. That there’s an end in sight and that things are changing.”

What was going through Piper’s head? “Everybody’s mortality was at stake. It was a real moment of reckoning. It’s an existential moment of: Why are we here, are we going to continue to be here and, if we’re going to continue to be here, what’s the price?”

What could happen next season? “It’s not looking good! Jenji talks about how her intention isn’t to be a politician or an activist, but to tell honest stories about individuals and that then the individual becomes universal. Then, in seeing yourself in someone you previously deemed as ‘other,’ it’s an inherently political act. By relating to something that you thought was apart from you. So I think that is, particularly now, really important.”
