New interview of Taylor Schilling with ‘Monster and Critics’
From Monster & Critics
Monsters and Critics: This is reminiscent of the Kings series BrainDead. Were you aware of them? Did you know their writing?
Taylor Schilling: The Good Wife and The Good Fight are iconic shows, so I definitely was aware of their writing. I’ve heard other people refer to BrainDead when discussing this show and I’ve never seen it, so I’m not super familiar with that, but I do know that they have an interest in zombies and monsters. They have that side to them.

NEW photoshoot and interview of Taylor Schilling for Imagista Magazine
Taylor Schilling first grabbed our attention with her role as “Piper” on the hit Netflix series, Orange Is the New Black. But the actress, who was nominated for a Golden Globe award for the role, is so much more than that. We caught up with the busy actress as she navigates being creative in the time of pandemic.
Imagista: Hello Taylor. How are you keeping at this curious point in history?
Taylor: With lots of practice, I have become quite adept at living by life day by day. The ‘one day at a time’ practice is always very useful to me, but has proven to be even more vital now. Just as much as sleep or water. I’ve also gotten more involved in my own community, and spent time focusing on my interests outside of acting.

New interview of Taylor Schilling and Mary Laws with Showbizjunkies
Emmy nominee Taylor Schilling (Orange Is the New Black) leads the cast of season one episode five, “Plainfield, Illinois.” The episode explores the relationship of a couple, played by Schilling and Roberta Colindrez, as they push the boundaries between life and death. Schilling joined Monsterland showrunner and executive producer Mary Laws for a virtual roundtable discussion during New York Comic Con to discuss the source material and Schilling’s riveting (and disturbing) episode.
What type of research did you do to better understand what your character was dealing with, both in terms of having bipolar disorder and also turning into a zombie?
Taylor Schilling: “I think that I had many moments where I felt like I was experiencing my life as a horror film. And it feels that way and it feels that heightened. I think a lot of times it’s just when a script is very well written and feels very emotionally solvent, logical, it’s really just a little bit of detective work to figure out, to connect the dots from what’s happening there to what’s happening other places.
This piece made a hell of a lot more sense to me than other more seemingly simple things I’ve done.”

Here’s a new interview of Taylor Schilling with Rolling Stone
From Rolling Stone
Orange Is the New Black actress Taylor Schilling appeared on Rolling Stone‘s The First Time to discuss her starring role in an episode of Monsterland, a new horror anthology series from Annapurna that premiered on Hulu earlier this month.
“I was really interested in the way the script externalized the more monstrous parts of ourselves into scary monsters outside of ourselves,” Schilling said. “I thought that was really fun, and a great way to get some distance from what’s happening in our internal landscape to talk about it in a narrative form. As a construct, it’s a fun way to give enough distance from our internal world in order to talk about them.”
Schilling also talked about her first experiences with being recognized by a fan in public, meeting a personal idol, quitting a job, and voting in a U.S. election.
“I was a college student in New York City,” she recalled. “It was Obama in 2008, and I felt so enlivened by his message. It was the first time I was really in a community of people my own age, like-minded college students, and everyone with a burgeoning sense of their own politics. It was a thrilling moment in time.”
