Think You Could Pick Oitnb's Kasey Sankey Out of a Lineup?

21 June 2017 11:35 AM, PDT | | See recent Popsugar news »

Now that season five of Orange Is the New Black has premiered, you should be more familiar with Kelly Karbacz, who plays white supremacist leader Kasey Sankey. But if you've been wondering what she looks like outside of her khaki Litchfield jumpsuit, then look no further. While most of the characters on the Netflix show portray hardened women behind bars, the cast is a lot more glamorous in real life.

Kasey is rough around the edges, and, well, pretty racist, while Kelly isn't used to saying and doing any of the things that her character does, making it very difficult for Kelly to play her. In a recent interview with Hidden Remote, Kelly opened up about what it's like playing Kasey, saying, "I do think she has a heart, and I do think that she's a complex character. She's challenging for me. Saying and doing these things are nothing like me in life, so it's difficult." Kelly then explained what she does to "bring her to life," adding, "What I do is try to find little ways to connect with her . . . to make her honest and truthful and tell the story that the writers want to tell. So I try to remember not to judge her. I reflect and think, 'Ok, this is what she knows, and this is why she behaves this way.' And then I try to find the kernels to hold onto so I can breathe life into her." Even though Kelly's makeunder may not be as dramatic as the others, would you be able to pick her out of a lineup? »

Spoilers for season five of Orange Is the New Black! Alison Abdullah (Amanda Stephen) joined Orange Is the New Black season four as one of the new inmates who was transferred in by McC as a way to eke every last cent out of Litchfield by stuffing it to the gills. She initially didn't get along with bunkmate Black Cindy (Adrienne C. Moore) but gradually came to be part of the group that includes Cindy, Taystee (Danielle Brooks), Janae (Vicky Jeudy), Suzanne (Uzo Aduba), and Poussey (Samira Wiley), until Poussey's untimely death in the final episodes of season four. When the show picks back up, Alison is still firmly part of the group, and in fact, she's instrumental in crafting the inmates' demands as part of the riot, due in large part to being more emotionally removed and practical since she wasn't as close with Poussey. In episode four, viewers are treated to Alison's backstory, »
