Interviewer: Watching the show, particularly in Season 1, it often feels intimidating and terrifying. Does it feel that way for you on the inside?
Yael: It definitely did for one moment, with Pornstache (Pablo Schreiber) in the car [Season 1, Episode 6]. That was a fun experience but probably my definition of fun is a little strange! It was genuinely intimidating to be there with Pablo. He’s an incredible actor but I don’t know him very well because we never did a lot of work together. I kind of knew he was this amazing force of crazy quick silver. So actually, that scene was about coming up to his level and making sure I didn’t let the writing fall flat. That was a scene where my character was in every sense in a great deal of physical danger. And potential sexually physical danger. That was an intimidating time, but very much within the walls of professionalism. But you know, it was one of those moments where you don’t have to reach too far for the given circumstances…
The women of Orange is the New Black for Emmy magazine
One of the most dramatic moments of season 1.
Dita and Manson about their marriage:
“I would not get married if I didn’t believe in it. I’ve always believed in tradition. I think both of us did, at the time. Let’s just say that it must have been something pretty bad for me to move out of the house after six years together and to pack up my stuff on Christmas Eve. I loved him, and this was the most painful thing I have ever had to go through. It’s been really difficult. It’s not what I expected when I got married, and I felt like I’d found the man of my dreams. But sometimes things change overnight, and you have to make a choice as to whether you’re going to respect yourself and say, ‘I’m not going to accept this. This is not okay.’ I’m not the first woman, or the last, to go through what I’m going through. I just keep reminding myself of that.”
Manson: “Yes, it has an inconvenient, unfortunate parallel to getting married. I think they ultimately have to be associated. I don’t think that the relationship was… something to blame… as much as the, just the, the cliches of marriage. Being expected to change. Change who you are. I started to feel — and maybe this is only how I perceived it, or it’s what my ex-wife genuinely expected of me — but to have to change who I am because suddenly I’m supposed to be more responsible or adult or to have to apologize for who I am… It just ultimately wasn’t what I was prepared for. I think that somebody’s always going to suffer more. And I’d think I hurt her more. But only because she didn’t understand the amount of pain I went through before it became apparent to her. She didn’t understand that my idea of the relationship was suffering for longer than she knew. And so when things ended equally between us, she might have assumed that I didn’t care. Not realizing that I had been experiencing it for much longer.”
hate when i lose something and my parents says “well i guess u didnt care about it enough” like you’ve lost me in a grocery store before
