One thing we loved about the new season of Orange is the New Black is that we really got into the backstories of some of our favorite characters — one of whom is ‘Poussey’, played by Samira Wiley.
While we got a closer look at Poussey’s history and past loves, it’s actress Samira’s off-screen love life that catching attention.
Rumor has it, she’s cozied up to one of Orange’s show writers, Lauren Morelli.
Lauren was previously married to her husband after 6 years of commitment. They married 6-months before the series began shooting. It was during the taping of the show that Lauren came to the realization that she was gay.
She came out in an open letter, writing: “I went through it all on set: I fell in love with a woman, and I watched my life play out on screen. I encourage you to embrace your own narrative, whatever that may be. It will be worth the effort.”
And now that she’s found her freedom, it looks like she can’t get enough Poussey!
The two have posted several photos of each other on Instagram, ‘just chillin, you know?’
They look boo’d up to us. What do you think?
