Taylor Schilling’s interview and photoshoot with Imagista
Imagista: Ok, so how about we talk about “Orange” first and then get into some other topics? How does it feel now that “Orange” is wrapped, to say goodbye to that chapter of your life?
Taylor Schilling: You know, it feels enlivening. There’s a surreal nature to be involved in something that has had a profound impact on a large number of people. I think I have a better perspective on the scope of “Orange” now than I ever have. I feel a tremendous amount of gratitude. I think that’s how I feel. It feels ready to be over, from my perspective. I’m not a creator on the show but in my capacity as an actor it feels like it was a really good run. And it feels really exciting, and the world feels different. It feels exciting to be able to see the horizon again. For seven years the rhythm of one’s life was around the TV show. We’d have six months to eight months in production and then six to eight months off. So there was this built in rhythm.
So it’s so wild and exciting now to just be able to see the horizon. It feels like the possibilities are limitless again. It’s very exciting.
