Some of the standout characters portrayed below by Aduba are Piper (Taylor Schilling), Alex (Laura Prepon) and Nicky (Natasha Lyonne) — though we have no idea what she’s doing with her Poussey (Samira Wiley).

At one point, Aduba appears to be auditioning for the nonexistent role of Michael Jackson.
