Personal Quote:

The day I found out I got the role [of Suzanne, aka "Crazy Eyes", on Orange Is the New Black (2013)], I had a terrible audition for another show, and so I was like, "You're done. You're not supposed to do this." And so I quit. Then 45 minutes later, I got the call that I'd got this job. See more »

Trivia:

After having mostly unsuccessful auditions, Aduba got the call that she got the role of Crazy Eyes on "Orange is the New Black," 45 minutes after she decided to quit acting altogether. See more »
