OITNB Video: What Happens When Black Cindy Stops Laughing?

Loading video...

Orange Is the New Black inmate Black Cindy is a jovial sort — so even her portrayer, Adrienne C. Moore, had little idea of her character’s “emotional truth” until last season’s “Comic Sans” episode.

In the exclusive behind-the-scenes clip above, Moore recalls reading the script for the hour — in which we learn that Cindy was a TSA agent who pretends that her daughter is her little sister — and being shocked by the argument between the character and her mom.

“I had never experienced Cindy getting that angry,” Moore says. “She uses humor to mask a lot of difficult areas in her life.”

Season 2 of Netflix’s prison dramedy is available on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD on May 19; Season 3 premieres June 12 on the streaming video service. Until then, press PLAY on the video at the top of the post to watch Moore delve into her character.

    I’m continuing to find it unbearable waiting for season 3 to drop. I love all of these characters much more than I thought possible.
