Michelle Hurst, who plays the hardened Miss Claudette on the hit Netflix series, Orange Is The New Black, has emerged from a 16-day medically-induced coma following a car accident before the holidays. The news comes as the series launched a Kickstarter-like fundraising campaign on YouCaring.com to help Hurst’s family to pay for medical expenses and time off. Hurst will need the expenses and time off to recover from injuries close to her spine. She’s currently in the ICU at the Unc Chapel Hill Hospital in North Carolina.
