Orange Is the New Bikini! OITNB costars Natasha Lyonne, Uzo Aduba, and Samira Wiley ditched their jumpsuits and opted for teeny bikinis on Wednesday, June 10. The Netflix stars jetted off to Sao Paulo, Brazil, for a beach day together, frolicking in the waves and kicking back in the sand, while chatting and laughing with each other ahead of the release of Season 3.
The friendly castmates even color-coordinated their suits. Lyonne, who suffered a nip slip after splashing in the ocean, opted for a black bikini while Aduba and Wiley showcased their curves in black and white bikinis.
The ladies’ day in the sun came a day before the new season of the hit prison series dropped early on Thursday, June 11. While chatting with Us Weekly at OrangeCon in New York City Thursday night, Wiley told Us her character will go through a personal “journey."
“We can expect her to have some healing time," Wiley, who plays Poussey, told Us. "And see how that happens within a prison, which is a little different than if she had the support and love of her family on the outside. On the inside, who she has is Taystee and the rest of the Ghetto Dorm. They rekindled their friendship at the end of Season 2. But yeah, we’ll just go on a journey and see how Poussey can heal."
Yael Stone, who plays Lorna, also told Us the now binge-available season will revisit the theme of “faith.” “Even when you look at the promotion images, those candles, that idea of clinging to your hopes, lighting a candle, that one belief that you have,” she explained. “I think the season is about these women reaching for something to hold on to. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t.”
