Natasha Lyonne Talks Drug Addiction and Season 3!

The 4th Annual Critics' Choice Television Awards

Orange is the New Black scene stealer, Natasha Lyonne, has come a long way since the American Pie franchise and a dark period of drug addiction.  Her awesome acting in the hit Netflix show, playing the role of Nicky Nichols, has earned her an Emmy nomination this year.

In an interview with People magazine this week, she speaks about relating to her character’s battle with drug addiction:

Believe me, there’s no shortage of things for me to draw on when it comes to Nicky’s backstory. But while I was filming a hospital scene [when Nicky undergoes open heart surgery after an overdose] it was weird because I had been through something so similar, but had almost nothing to draw on. I had my surgery for the same reason, as a result of drug use. But Nicky’s feeling was “God, I’m still not dead yet?” For me, I had already been doing a pretty decent job of clean living before the procedure. I was like, “Gosh, I really hope this doesn’t take me out.” I’m grateful I’m okay.

I can’t even imagine what it would be like to act out your personal and very real life demons for a role.  Lyonne is one of my favorite characters on the show – and pulls off a very hilarious and bittersweet story.  She also promises that season 3 will bring “so much bloodshed.”

Oh dear.  I have to say I was VERY morbidly amused by ‘Vee’s’ last scene in the finale (played by Lorraine Toussaint).  This ensemble cast is so amazing.  My favorites are ‘Pennsatucky‘ (played by Taryn Manning, Lyonne’s ‘Nicky,’ ‘Crazy Eyes‘ played by Uzo Aduba, and ‘Poussey‘ played by Samira Wiley.  And of course ‘Pornstache‘ who, sadly, will not be back next season.  Tears.  Anyone else?

Natasha Lyonne surfaces!!



Look who’s suddenly out and about! American Pie star Natasha Lyonne, 27, who was hospitalized in New York last summer and reportedly checked into a Malibu rehab clinic a few months ago, was snapped there yesterday shopping with her boyfriend (top). It’s nice to see she looks better than she did a year and a half ago (bottom) — although it apparently also remains true that kicking smack is not kind to the waistline.
