In terms of the prep, it's not like I'm going to go all method on this one. Two instances that Misha recounted might amount to sexual harassment. I was messed up while doing it. Would you draw any parallels between her and Alex? Taystee is one of my faves! The cool thing about Alex is that she started off kind of like [Homolka] but she evolves and you see her become vulnerable.
If you just want to watch Misha, there are multiple other options available:

She's really imperfect and really fucks up at times but isn't that the point? She's in a position of power over Piper -- like in the pilot where she's stripping for me. When I read this script, there were so many rad roles, so when I read Alex I loved her. I also got this role on 14 hours' notice; they basically told me I had to move to New York and go to prison. How would you describe your experience working on a Netflix show?
