Interviews: Daniel Schmidt
Netflix series “Orange is the new black” season four begins on June 17. In the last three years, the American drama series has attracted attention with an attempt to break the classic image of women. We have the cast of “OITNB“ they met in Berlin and spoke with them exclusively about ideals of beauty and images of women in times of gender discussions, plus-size models and more naturalness. For the actresses, the new and diverse images of women, which are also taken up again and again in the series, represent a departure into a new era. The show did a good job because it gave viewers more self-confidence. But see for yourself what the actresses had to tell us:
No makeup, orange jumpsuits, badly styled hair, unless you get a date with prison hairdresser Sophia (Laverne Cox). This is how you meet the actors of the Netflix series. “Orange is the new black ”on television. Uzo Aduba (Suzanne “Crazy Eyes” Warren), Yael Stone (Lorna Morello), Dascha Polanco (Dayanara “Daya” Diaz), Selenis Leyva (Gloria Mendoza) and Lea DeLaria (Carrie “Big Boo” Black) attended the interview, naturally stylized and in their most beautiful clothes. The American series, based on the book “Orange Is the New Black: My Year in a Women’s Prison” by Piper Kerman, set out not only to entertain the audience, but also to address some of the fundamental issues that women in today can affect. .
The cast of “OITNB” raises important questions: Is it really necessary to put on makeup and cleanse every day? And who are we really doing this for? For us, for men, for other women? And how do people who are not oriented to gender or sexual orientation deal with it? And how does the environment react? Actress Laverne Cox, in the series playing Sophia, who used to be a man and now has to grapple with the fact that her young son also accepts her as a second mom, was the first transgender woman in 2014 for her guest role. in “OITNB” for an Emmy Nominee. Lead actress Taylor Schilling (Piper Chapman) initially struggles to cope with her new existence as a pretty blonde recluse, who is constantly stripped naked by some lesbian recluses.
We think it’s great that “Orange Is the New Black” gives so many different types of women the opportunity to stand out and show how different and multifaceted women really are. Let’s see what season four has to offer, which you can follow on Netflix starting June 17.
