Danielle Brooks & Samira Wiley Have Been Friends Since College

3 years ago|4 views
Danielle Brooks, who plays Taystee on Orange is the New Black, says her character's most emotional moment couldn't have happened with any other actor than Samira Wiley. Brooks, who also stars in the Broadway Musical 'The Color Purple,' says she first met Samira when the young actor helped her move into her dormitory at Julliard. The pair have remained close over the years, helping to make the moment where Taystee reacts to Wiley's character's death all the more emotional.
