On Tuesday afternoon, we’ll talk with Taryn Manning about her role as dangerous prison inmate Tiffany ‘Pennsatucky’ Doggett on the Netflix series “Orange is the New Black,” which returns for its second season on June 6. Join us for our live chat on May 27, at 2:00pm PT/5:00pm ET on Gold Derby’s home page.
Manning is a contender for Best Comedy Guest Actress for playing Pennsatucky, a drug addict-turned-religious zealot who becomes the nemesis of Piper Chapman (Taylor Schilling). She vowed to kill Piper, but at the end of the season finale, Piper turned the tables in a violent cliffhanger.
In addition to “Orange,” Manning has made numerous other TV and film appearances over the past 15 years, including “8 Mile,” “Cold Mountain,” and “Hustle & Flow,” the last of which earned her a SAG nomination for Best Motion Picture Ensemble. She also played recurring roles on “Sons of Anarchy” and “Hawaii Five-0.”
