Taylor Schilling might look like a conventional actress, but looks can be deceiving!

The actress opened up to Net-a-Porter’s The EDIT about her unconventional childhood and how it led her to become the “rogue” person she is today. Here’s a taste:

On her parents’ tumultuous divorce: “I think I was just born rogue,” she tells the magazine. “My parents did not have a good relationship. There was no sense of, ‘This is where you belong. This is how you have a friend over for a tea party. This is how you go to a dance.’ It was chaotic. I thought, well, I might as well go off-map.”

On leaving NYU: “I’m not afraid of Chekhov or Shakespeare. But I thought, ‘How much more theory can we talk about?’ I had to spread my wings.”

On her OITNB role: “There are expectations people have of blond-haired, blue-eyed girls, and that’s to be good. That’s how Piper grew up. She was meant to follow the rules: marry a man, have a baby and a business that her mother approves of,” she says. “[But] the center could not hold. And now she’s scrambling to put the pieces back together to find out who she is, and it doesn’t fit in the mold.”
