Orange is the New Black Actress Shares Her Character Transformation

Actress and singer Francesca Curran met with Joanna Gagis on “A Life & Living Moment” to discuss the physical and mental transformations she went through to play a Neo-Nazi character in Netflix original series, Orange is the New Black.

“I usually like to do a physical and a vocal warmup before I go in,” Curran says. “Helen is such a deep character, and I have to go to those dark places.”

The actress had to do quite a bit of research in preparation for this character. “Research really helped me to learn about the character and about this culture that I had no idea about,” she explains. “It just goes to show that I grew up in a bubble.”
