Alysia Reiner Orange is the New Black - H 2014

The actress who plays assistant warden Fig tells #pretapodcasts that she didn't get the role she originally wanted - not that she's complaining

"Didn't get it. Heartbroken," Alysia Reiner said of auditioning for the role of Alex in Orange Is The New Black before being cast as the woman viewers soon most loved to hate, Assistant to the Warden Natalie Figueroa.

Reiner joined #pretapodcasts in-studio to explain why she can't bring herself to watch her most infamous scene in season two; the suspicions she developed about her character when Jenji Kohan would tell her "nothing" beyond what was in the script; and why she's so proud of once playing "a ho - a professional ho."
