Recently, Stone sat down with Uproxx and spoke about what it was like to play the character, specifically addressing the notion of playing Lorna sympathetically."
"I guess I'm always trying to get inside their heads, so when you're always working from inside, there's a bias going on already, so I don't have any intention there, I've always just wanted to be really human with her," Stone said. "I guess our humanity includes some horrible things and some beautiful things, and it's always a balancing act with humanity."
"I understand her fantasy mind. I understand her strong feelings that kind of take over, and the manner in which she can't gain control," she added. "I've seen it in people before, and I think that's why people have affection for her because there's something about her … even though she's quite larger than life in some ways she seems familiar."
All seven seasons of Orange is the New Black are now streaming on Netflix.
