Taryn Manning began Orange Is The New Black as Tiffany "Pennsatucky” Doggett, one of season one’s primary antagonists and a crazy, evangelical former meth-head. The third season of the hit show, however, gave Pennsatucky a more thoroughly explored story arc, and viewers got greater insight into her past and the dark turn-of-events with Officer Coates. The exploration of Pennsatucky's character seemed like a testament to how the show is maturing over the seasons and how the actors, like Manning, so perfectly portray the evolving of their roles.

Manning, when she isn’t playing Pennsatucky, is a talented DJ, self-proclaimed California gal, and lover of her dog, Penguin. She talked with us about how she finds her voice through her music, personal style, and beauty routines, and who the real heroes in her life are.
