Hair Idol: Uzo Aduba
At this point, I might as well make the ladies of Orange is the New Black a recurring series. And before you ask, no, I have not started watching this. I've got to catch up on Breaking Bad, just started Sleepy Hollow, and since Hannibal is coming back soon my "Must Watch Queue" is overflowing.
Uzo Aduba is best known for playing Suzanne "Crazy Eyes" Warren in Orange is the New Black but she started getting recognized for her work way back in 2003 when she won a Helen Hayes Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress in the play Translations of Xhosa.
She made her Broadway debut as Toby in Corum Boy and hung out with the stage crowd until 2012 when she made the jump to TV with a small role in the cop drama Blue Bloods before landing her role in Orange is the New Black.
Are you a fan of all these Orange is the New Black posts? I hope you are! Because this single show has more Black women in speaking roles than some entire networks!
