Interview & New Photoshoot: Laura Prepon talks about motherhood, OITNB, career and more.

Interview & New Photoshoot: Laura Prepon talks about motherhood, OITNB, career and more. If you’re a longtime fan of Orange Is the New Black, you can expect to see Alex Vause, the dangerously sexy convicted drug smuggler played by Laura Prepon, doing a few things. You can expect to see her entangled in a sweaty prison cell makeout with fiancée Piper (Taylor Schilling), or placing the arm of her trademark black spectacles against the corners of her lips (there are numerous GIFs capturing this specific act, each image so erotic as to nearly constitute a violation of Tumblr’s pornography ban). Or you can see her in fight mode, stalking around with a scowl and a threatening message for her enemies, who alternately refer to her as “Sasquatch,” “Elvira,” and “Superc*nt.”

Behind the Scenes (Video) below the full interview and article.

What you don’t expect to see Alex Vause doing is cooking an egg.

On YouTube, Prepon, the actor behind Vause, patiently explains how to fill a saucepan of eggs with water, and demonstrates what constitutes a good boil. She then methodically peels the eggs and proudly cuts one in half, revealing a circle of yellow inside a white oval.

“In my house we have something that has basically become a hashtag,” she says in the clip, titled The #PerfectYellow Hard Boiled Egg. ”When we hard boil the egg and slice it open and we see the color of the yolk, we’re like” — Alex Vause voice — “‘perfect yellow.’” 

The video has more than 50,000 views, and when I ask Prepon why she thinks this simple topic generated such a strong response, she laughs.

“A lot of people love that video, you have no idea about how many people have reached out about that.”

OITNB Season 6: [Spoiler] Inside that Surprise Wedding.

OITNB Season 6: [Spoiler] Inside that Surprise Wedding.

Two stars take the Hollywood Reporter behind the scenes of their characters’ big decision in the season 6 finale: “It was about two people who love each other.”

Alex Vause had a surprise up her sleeve in the Orange Is the New Black finale.

During the supersized, 84-minute season 6 episode, the Netflix prison dramedy paused its maximum security infighting so it could hold a secret prison wedding for Alex (Laura Prepon) and Piper Chapman (Taylor Schilling). Alex — with officiant Nicky Nichols (Natasha Lyonne) and witness Lorna Morello (Yael Stone) in tow — planned the wedding Piper so desperately wanted to have before leaving Litchfield.

“It was a sense of normalcy for Alex and Piper,” Laura Prepon tells The Hollywood Reporter. “With these women in prison, anything that gets you to forget where you are, even for a few minutes, is pretty magical. That scene in that moment was about their union and their love and they did what they could with it, considering they are in a Max prison.”

While the Litchfield nuptials signified a full-circle moment for the formerly tumultuous couple at the center of OITNB, the scene also carried with it a heavy weight. The even bigger finale twist was that Piper was being let out of prison on early release, meaning that the wedding sequence doubled as a final prison moment for the scene partners, who are likely to have glass between them when the show returns for its already-renewed seventh season next year.

“I’m not really a wedding vows person — that isn’t my forte, but I was really excited to do this for the fans of this show,” Brian Chamberlayne, who wrote the episode titled “Be Free,” tells THR of penning Alex’s prepared vows and Piper’s impromptu speech. “I have always been a fan of their relationship, so getting a chance to do a momentous moment like that was a big deal. And then to be on set when they’re shooting it really did feel like something special. It was beautiful. And they all brought it. Natasha was amazing. It was really a beautiful, beautiful scene to watch.”

With Alex still facing four years left on her sentence, Prepon says her character planned the moment with Piper in mind.

“I think Alex would have been okay just being engaged and knowing they are together, but Piper really wanted to do the ceremony,” she says. “She really wanted that box checked: Ok, we did it, we’re married. I think Alex knows that about her, so as Piper’s going-away gift, she plans the whole thing.”

Behind the scenes, Prepon was actually “deathly ill” and worried about getting Schilling sick.

“We almost pushed the scene because of the kiss at the end. There was this whole conversation about whether or not we should push it, but when I talked to Taylor she was like, ‘No, let’s do it,'” Prepon recalls with a laugh. “So that whole day while we were at the altar, stationed around us on the windowsills were tissues and cough drops and all this stuff for me.”
