Bio

Taylor Schilling is an American actress best known for her starring role as Piper Chapman, a woman who was sentenced to 15 months in Litchfield Penitentiary for helping her former girlfriend smuggle drug money, in the Netflix comedy-drama series Orange Is the New Black.

She was previously known for her starring role as Nurse Veronica Flanagan Callahan in the medical drama television series Mercy, from 2009-2010.

Schilling made her debut on the big screen in the role of Jackie in the First Independent Pictures film Dark Matter, which co-starred Meryl Streep.

The film, inspired by actual events, follows the journey of an ambitious Chinese scientist working towards his Ph.D. in America, only to be marginalized to the extent that he ultimately loses his way.

Schilling graduated with a B.A. in acting from Fordham University Lincoln Centre. Her passion for acting led her to appear in various plays on the Bard College, NYU, and Fordham University stages.

She was the recipient for the Emerson College Playwright's Festival Outstanding Performance Award.

Schilling's hometown is Boston, Massachusetts, home to her favourite baseball team, the Red Sox. She currently resides in New York.
