Best Instagrams From the Cast of ‘Orange Is the New Black’

The cast of the Netflix hit are friends in real life. Check out their adorable photos of each other

While you’re probably already deep into binge-watching Season Two of “Orange Is the New Black” on Netflix, you might want to take moment to appreciate how appealing the show’s cast is in real life. One of the best features of the prison drama is the realistic way the friendships of the main characters are portrayed. These women support each other through rough times, and the show largely steers away from cliched tropes and oversimplified drama. But it gets better, in real life, the actors are friends, too. Danielle Brooks, who plays Taystee on the show, and Samira Wiley, who plays Poussey, have talked about their longtime friendship. They, and the rest of the cast members, express their affection for each other all over Instagram.

Check out some of their best posts below.
