Looks like Litchfield just found themselves a new inmate. According to reports, Australian actress Ruby Rose, 28, has been added to the Season 3 cast of “Orange is the New Black.” But who will the stunning starlet portray in the upcoming installment of the hit Netflix series?
It was confirmed by Elle Magazine that Rose, who was dubbed by the publication as one of the fresh faces to watch in 2015, will take on the character Stella Carlin. Stella has been described as an inmate at Litchfield Federal Correctional Institution “whose sarcastic sense of humor and captivating looks quick draw the attentions of some of Litchfield’s inmates.”
Any guesses on which prisoner will fall head-over-heels for the real-life model and face of Maybelline? According to People Magazine, Stella’s jaw-dropping good looks will catch the eye of both Piper (Taylor Schilling) and Alex (Laura Prepon) – and we can’t blame them! But will the newcomer’s arrival drive a wedge between the tumultuous lovers of Litchfield? All signs point to a big, fat, orange yes.
But Stella’s behind-bars debut will only be one of the many reasons why Piper and Alex are considered star-crossed lovers. In Season 2, Alex begged Piper to lie at the trial of her drug boss. However, the glasses-donning hottie double crossed her girlfriend and was set free from telling to truth at the stand, unlike Piper who went along with Alex’s plan to fib.
Because Piper lied, she was given additional prison time and faced perjury charges. But the joke was on Alex who later found out that the boss she ratted on wasn’t convicted. That meant he was free and most likely hunting down the woman who betrayed him. When Piper learned of Alex’s current situation, she had Polly (Maria Dizzia) inform Alex’s probation officer of her girlfriend’s plan to skip town. This would land Alex back behind bars – and safe from Kubra (Eyas Younis).
So, you can see why the two may not see eye-to-eye when “OITNB” returns to Netflix for Season 3 in June. And with a new, sexy prisoner added to the dramatic mix, we can only imagine how tempted they each might be to form a romance with the new inmate.
How do you think Rose will contribute to the Season 3 plot of “Orange is the New Black”? Sound off with your theories in the comments section below.
