Taylor Schilling managed to turn orange into the new black thanks to her turn as Piper Chapman in the Netflix original comedy-drama.

And now, in a new pulsating and tense original film, The Titan, she attempts to save the world alongside the dreamy Sam Worthington.

Starring in a film set in a dystopian future, where the world has become uninhabitable due to global warming, may sound like a Sci-fi lover’s dream, but until filming commenced, Taylor wasn’t a fully-fledged futurist geek.

“I’m not big into it! I love it when I do watch Sci-fi films, but I have never even really followed stars that much, I’m getting into it now,” she said. No time like the present then, hun.

New interview and photoshoot of Taylor Schilling for Gotham Magazin

Here’s a new interview of Taylor Schilling with Gotham Magazine


As parole on Orange Is the New Black begins to look imminent, Taylor Schilling trades prison walls for outer space in the new sci-fi flick The Titan. While driving through New York City, she reveals her future predictions for Instagram, what it’s like to play a mom and that someone special who may – or may not – be living in Gowanus.

I think the Manhattan Bridge is faster. It will be faster when we get out of New York.

Taylor Schilling is heading home to Brooklyn after perusing the David Hockney exhibit at The Met with Yael Stone, her co-star on the wildly popular Netflix series Orange Is the New Black, which premieres its fifth season this June. “I’m a backseat driver,” she informs me and the Lyft employee who’s transporting her.

Schilling is 10 minutes late for our call because her phone’s battery was at only 4 percent and she was trying to find an outlet to charge it. She is wholeheartedly, authentically apologetic, as most multitaskers tend to be. “My phone always goes dead,” she says seriously. “It happens. But I snuck down from The Met to the Apple Store,” she explains. “The thing about Apple Stores is… outlets.” You get the feeling this happens to Schilling often.

Preview of a new interview with Taylor Schilling

Here’s a short preview of Taylor Schilling’s interview with Gotham

From Page Six

“Orange Is the New Black” star Taylor Schilling says she has found love in a hopeless place: Gowanus, most famous for its putrid canal.

“I’m not gonna talk about it, but someone special does live in Gowanus,” Schilling says in the upcoming issue of Gotham. “It’s full of special people. It’s a special place,” she added.

Schilling, who will star in Netflix’s forthcoming sci-fi film “The Titan,” was rumored to be dating Carrie Brownstein.

She tells the mag, however, that when it comes to love, “there’s no part of me that can be put under a label. I really don’t fit into a box — that’s too reductive . . . I’ve had a lot of love, and I don’t have any qualms about where it comes from.”

Here’s a pic and few quotes of Taylor Schilling with German magazine ‘NEON’

Translation found on the internet:

 “Dating doesn’t change much, surprisingly, when your counterpart can google nude pics of you before your first date. I hope, nevertheless, that my dates don’t read too much about me on the internet before the date”

“I’m a tall woman, so men have to stand on apple crates while shooting to appear taller. I don’t want to go into detail but I’ve learned: Don’t adress it. We’ll both pretend it is not happening.”

“I don’t really drink alcohol, that’s just not me nor my lifestyle. I’m living a life without hangover”

“If you’re stuck and don’t see a way out: There is always one, I promise.”

“While working as a nanny I’ve learned two important things: Everybody wants to be heard. And nobody likes it to be excluded on the playground.”

” I cannot confirm the theory of falling in love with someone inevitably just because of kissing them many times. I’ve kissed Laura Prepon constantly over the last five years, because we play a couple on “Orange is the new black” but I’ve never fallen in love with her.”

“Try, under any circumstance, to look behind a persons face and not to jump to conclusions too fast. We have a lot in common, more than we think.”

” I want to absorb the news, not to be absorbed by them. It’s a balancing act staying mentally healthy and to be aware of the things happening to the world at the same time. The daily 15-minute podcast of the “New York Times” is a good way not to lose track.”

“Risk something in life. You have nothing to lose.”

Taylor Schilling talks about what winning a SAG Award means to her

Taylor Schilling talks about what winning a SAG Award means to her

From Variety

The words that you should “remember where you came from” could easily be the motto of the Screen Actors Guild Awards. While many of the winners are household names and living legacies, they all know too well what it feels like to audition to be Waiter Number Four (again).

That the SAG Awards have only grown in media scrutiny and prominence since their debut in 1995 has not gone unnoticed by the winners. Nor do they necessarily think this is a bad thing.

Taylor Schilling
Netflix’s “Orange Is the New Black” has won the TV comedy ensemble category every year since it became eligible in 2014. But star Schilling’s speech at the 2017 ceremony got a particularly strong reaction when she called out the then-newly elected commander in chief of the United States.
Her remarks were a response to President Trump’s executive order earlier in the week banning immigrants from certain countries from entering the U.S. (a ban that has since been struck down in courts). Schilling is part of the most ethnically and racially diverse casts on TV — and she says she needed to comment that night.

“This story that we’re telling through this show, collectively, would not be possible without refugees and immigrants,” she says now. “You can’t unbraid the show from the immigrant experience and it felt vital that, if we were going to be honored again, then we needed to acknowledge it.”

She says this win also resonated with her because she feels “the SAG Awards are the most meaningful of all the awards.” She thinks about the Theodore Roosevelt speech that claims that the person who truly counts isn’t the critic, but the “man who is actually in the arena.”

“We’re really all in the ring together,” she says. “To be acknowledged by somebody who truly understands the experience? I don’t know what could be more exciting than that.”

Lately, Taylor Schilling has been starting her days writing. About a year ago, the 33-year-old actress and star of Orange Is the New Black realized that setting aside time in the morning just to write—no goal, no agenda, no word count—tuned her in for the rest of the day. “I’m finding that if I wake up and write out whatever is clogging up my thinking—fears, worries, whatever it is—that by the time I’m done writing, I’m a little more focused on what I want to have happen, instead of what I’m afraid of.”

Schilling feels her best in the morning—“I love the freshness of a new day”—and she relishes those moments to herself when time stands still: eating breakfast, writing, and drinking tea in her Brooklyn home. “It sets me up and focuses me on what I’m curious about,” she says. “Kind of tosses the external stuff that’s not as important and connects me to my values, and what matters.”

What matters to the Emmy-nominated actor these days—while she films the sixth season of Orange Is the New Black—is using her talents to make an impact. It can be anything from voicing concerns on behalf of her peers to calling lawmakers about issues she’s passionate about, or even babysitting a friend’s child. “That’s really a go-to way for me to feel beautiful, when I’m making some kind of contribution,” she says, reflectively. “It’s part and parcel of feeling beautiful. Yes, I feel incredibly beautiful when my skin is gorgeous, and after I’ve exercised and I’ve been eating in a clean way; or when I’m ready to go out for an evening—I love that stuff. But that can be more hit-or-miss in terms of an internal feeling of real power or beauty. It’s the physical part lined up with my own power.”

When Schilling was little, around the same time she saw community theater productions which inspired her to pursue acting, she felt beauty in physical triumphs such as when she could win a race against her brother or do a swing flip on the monkey bars. “I felt impenetrable,” she says. “I think that’s my earliest recollection of beauty. That feeling of attractiveness, and feeling magnetic and confident. And then it shifted a little bit,” she admits. “But I try to remember that and use it as a touchstone for what beauty means to me. I was embodied, inside of myself. I felt confident and ready to go.” This is where Genaissance de La Mer— a time-reversing formulation born from the crystals in a castoff beaker in the La Mer lab—and Schilling’s perspective meet: an understanding that there’s beauty and strength to be found in the unassuming, seemingly unremarkable moments every day.

Schilling refers back to that feeling of being grounded in her body as she continues to garner acclaim in a field where painting on a persona is part of the gig. “I can put on as many layers of shellac as I want, but my belief is that you can’t really fool anybody,” she says. “And what I love about Orange is that it celebrates all of that inside stuff. It’s made me bolder in my own life. It’s taught me that it’s not about seeking approval.” It’s also made her more forthcoming with the people who inspire her. “I’ve started doing this thing where I write to people whose work I love—writers, artists—sometimes just to offer gratitude or appreciation. It’s helpful,” she says, “And it’s kind of fun to write fan mail.”
