Orange er den nye sort: Seks ting vi lærte om Star Vicky Jeudy, a.k.a Janae Watson!

Whether you’re marathon-watched every episode for a single weekend or work steadily through Season 2 of Orange er det nye sort, Chancerne er Janae Watsons baghistorie som en high school spor stjerne trukket på dine hjerte strings. Men i virkeligheden kan Vicky Jeudy (som skildrer Janae) ikke være mere forskellig fra hendes hårde personskærm på skærmen, og det skinnede igennem under hans besøg på Med stil headquarters.

Med sin varme, venlige personlighed, it’s no wonder she is friends with all her thrown friends from the set. And they have a fair amount of fun while watching movies too. “Adrienne, der spiller Black Cindy, er en god ven af ​​mig, og efter at hun filmade sin scene som TSA agent, hvor hun skulle klappe ned en rigtig flot fyr, hun kaldte mig op som:” You will never believe in what i did today! ‘ Funny, that guy is now his coach, “says Jeudy.” We are nuts! Vi plejer at synge imellem tager, spiller patty-kage eller bruger disse lange, orange elektriske ledninger som hoppetov. We even have a signal, we cry out when our dormitory starts. “

Although she differs from Janae in her personality, Jeudy finds parallels between her and her character. “When you see Janae in prison, she is very obvious. I think she’s a little activist and I’m also an activist,” she says. “When it comes to human rights, civic rights and gender equality, I’m right there. It rains me in a few seconds, and I discussed it for Janae.” Under besøget spildte Jeudy mange sjove factoids om filmen, hvad hun audition var ligesom og meget mere. Hendes er seks ting, vi lærte om stjernen!

1. Hun er en undercover eventyr pro.

Før hun begyndte sin karriere som skuespillerinde, var Jeudy en af ​​de 25 bedste semifinalister i Miss New York USA-arrangementet. “If you can wear bathing suit or bikini with high heels, then go down the runway, while everyone is cheering with confidence, so you can do pretty much!” hun fortæller os.

Mens dokumentarfilm og reality-tv shows can make you believe that the exciting atmosphere is pretty similar to being in competing groups at Litchfield, so Jeudy does not look like the competitive aspect, but in that supportive. “I think it’s a big avenue for women because it helps create confidence and you meet many friends. I still keep in touch with the girls I competed with,” she adds. “Det er det samme for orange. We are all together at this amazing hit show together, but we are not competing against each other. Hvad er der for dig, er for dig, din rejse er din egen, og vi er alle støtteberettigede. “

2. Uzo Aduba oprindeligt auditioned for Janae.

“Uzo er ud over talentfulde,” siger Jeudy. “Hun auditionerede faktisk til Janae, men fik at vide, at hun var den forkerte type for den rolle.” Selvom casting direktørernes absolut anerkendte Adubas færdigheder-de ønskede hende på showet, men de var ikke sikre på hvilken rolle hun ville spille. Hun blev kontaktet senere og fik at vide, at hun ville spille Crazy Eyes, og jeg tror, ​​hun gjorde en fantastisk arbejde, tilføjer Jeudy. “Jeg elsker den måde, hun har skildret Suzanne, og alt hvad der går i hende.”

3. Jeudy behøvede kun at høre en gang før han blev del af Janae.

“I remember, when I auditioned, it was hot outside and I had a summer dress because I just came from a commercial audition,” she says. “I thought:” Oh my goodness, it’s so hot and this character does not like wearing dresses, “so I walked into the bathroom, ripped off all my makeup, threw on sweatpants and a hoodie and went in there like ‘You Er Janae, “og forbandede en storm!” Her rapid thinking gave a rejection when she received news that she only landed two days later. “No recall, I have just reserved it,” she adds. “I was so grateful! “

4. Hver skuespiller får deres script en uge før optagelse af deres scener.

We were keen to know what the end of season 2 meant for the friendship between Janae and Yoga Jones, and Jeudy admitted to herself also was unsure! “Vi får faktisk vores scripts en uge før vi skal skyde. It’s a good thing – it keeps us surprised,” she says. “You never know what will happen, and when you look at the character of Lorna (Morello), Yael had no idea she was crazy until she got her script! Everyone in the set was like:” Oh my Gud, du er nødder, pige! ‘ men it worked since she was so invested in that guy. “

5. She and Janae share an athletic background.

Besides having similar personlighedstræk is the star athletic like her character – except where Janae prefers to run, Jeudy would choose to swim. “I spore a semester, but I was a swimmer,” she admits. “Jeg var svømmer i gymnasiet, and when I was 18 years old, I became a certified aerobic instructor. It’s funny because Netflix had no idea I could run or not!” One week before the film of Janaes bakgrundshistorie called Netflix her to ask if she could videotape herself run on the treadmill, and because of her aerobic background, she could pull it off!

6. Hun elsker fan feedback.

Hvis du tilfældigvis ser Jeudy ud og om, vær sikker på at hun ikke er så skræmmende som Janae i real life. “Jeg tror, ​​på folkemusik forventer, at jeg bliver virkelig mægtig!” hun siger. Under en nylig cykeltur i Central Park blev en fan overrasket over hvordan fløjten hun var personligt. “Jeg havde på en lyserød hovedbøjle og sneakers, bare all girly, because I’m beautiful in the real life,” tells Jeudy us. “A guy asked if he could take a picture with me and of course I said yes, and when he looked at my bag he goes,” You are beautiful girly! I expected you to get out of your bike and be as: Deuces, baby! ‘”

Even though she becomes more and more recognized publicly, the star loves to hear from her fans and how they relate to her role. “You never know who you want to influence, and people approach you so I accept it and try to get a positive impact out of it,” says Jeudy. “If I can make you smile or even make you a little curious orange, so i do my job. “
