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.”

When Jenji Kohan’s women’s-prison drama started, there was no real way of knowing it would remain great after four years – in fact, the brilliance of the first season looked like a fluke. But it keeps getting better – the recent fourth season is the most intense yet. No other drama can match this ensemble, as actresses like Uzo Aduba, Jessica Pimentel, Danielle Brooks and Samira Wiley go deep on these characters and the heart-shredding stories that brought them here.
