My 7 Favorite "Orange is the New Black" Characters

~No intense spoilers~
  1. Honorable Mention: Sister Jane Ingalls
    Part of this is probably the Catholic in me, but I love how much she cares for Sophia. She's pretty badass.
  2. 7. Poussey Washington
    Definitely the character with the purest heart.
  3. 6. Tasha "Taystee" Jefferson
    Taystee was an early favorite of mind. She's so fun and funny, and definitely someone I'd want to hang out with if I was in prison.
  4. 5. Gloria Mendoza
    I just love Mendoza's maternal instinct. I hope we keep seeing more of her.
  5. 4. Lorna Morello
    Ohh, Morello. What a sweet, sweet mess you are. If I remember correctly, Morello was one of the first inmates we meet on OITNB, and she instantly became a favorite. I live for that accent and red lipstick.
  6. 3. Nicky Nichols
    The things that come out of Nicky's mouth are just so colorful. I'm always rooting for Nicky.
  7. 2. Suzanne "Crazy Eyes" Warren
    Uzo Aduba though. 2 Emmys so far, and I say keep them coming. I can't keep my eyes off the screen when Suzanne is in the scene. She's also such a brilliantly heartbreaking character.
  8. 1. Galina "Red" Reznikov
    The ultimate mama bear. Sometimes I get the feeling I'm the only one who appreciates how out-of-this-world amazing Red is. She's the ultimate badass. I'm a little disappointed Kate Mulgrew hasn't received more attention for playing her.
