Personal Quote:

I loved school, but I was very precocious. My second grade teacher would 100% agree that I had a very "strong personality". A distinctive dynamic and a strong personality. She was one of my favorite teachers - we still keep in touch now and have since the second grade. She saw that precociousness and didn't really try to change me or make me conform. See more »

Trivia:

After having mostly unsuccessful auditions, Aduba got the call that she got the role of Crazy Eyes on "Orange is the New Black," 45 minutes after she decided to quit acting altogether. See more »
