"Piper’s character, she seems to require a wide range of skills. Sometimes she’s doing straight-up comedy, but sometimes it’s very, very dark what she’s doing. How hard was that role to cast?"
That's the genius of Taylor Schilling. She's a hot girl who can play comedy. She's a unicorn. She's just really, really talented and she had that range. We looked for a long time, because you wanted a certain look, but at the same time you need her to be more than you necessarily associate with that look. And Taylor was it. (x)
