Uzo Aduba on 2nd season of ‘Orange is the New Black’ being ‘a hard exercise as an actor’ [Exclusive Video]

Uzo Aduba is looking to add a Golden Globe Award to her mantel next to her Best Comedy Guest Actress Emmy for her breakout role as Suzanne “Crazy Eyes” Warren on “Orange is the New Black.”

In our recent chat with the multi-award winner (watch below), Aduba revealed to us that the transition from guest to supporting wasn’t hard for her from season one to two but seeing what “Crazy Eyes” would be going through was: “That was a hard exercise as an actor. This was an exercise in standing by a choice that I would never choose. But I have to take my own judgments and my own thoughts about the matter and shelve them and I have to put them over here and I have to exist from a place of hope.”

With the Globes and Screen Actors Guild nominations on the way, Aduba told us that not even her recent Emmy win back in August has made her an “awards pro” yet: “It’s still a surprise. Like is this really happening? I think they said my name. Maybe there’s another Uzo? I just feel humbled and grateful by the whole thing.”

Having just wrapped the third season of the hit Netflix series, Aduba wouldn’t give us any major spoilers – not that we’d want to be spoiled – but she did offer this ominous tidbit: “I realized ‘Oh my gosh’ there is a greater story that she [creator Jenji Kohan] has been meaning to tell since the beginning.”
