Published By: Tara ClemSeptember 15, 2014
Lauren Morelli is one of the writers for the Netflix series ‘Orange Is The New Black’. Morelli married. All those scenes between Piper and Alex Voss, yeah Morelli is the one who writes those ‘Orange Is The New Black’ scenes.
Writing the intimate scenes between Piper and Alex were an epiphany to writer Lauren Morelli. They helped her find her true self, and decided it wasn’t fair to live the lie with her husband. She openly admitted to dating a character on the show. She left husband , who she was married to for two years.
‘Orange Is The New Black’ Character Based On Lauren Morelli
Consider this, the character “Lorna Morello” on ‘Orange Is The New Black’. She’s the inmate thats in love with Christopher. Remember she was delusional on her relationship with him. Morello would get hot and heavy with Nichols. Then she would immediately regret it. It’s safe to say that Lorna Morello is based on writer Lauren Morelli.
Lauren Morelli is dating ‘Orange Is The New Black’ star Samilra Wiley. She is the actress that plays Poussey. Lauren has said:
“I found a mouthpiece for my own desires and a glimmer of what my future could look like.”
Lauren Morelli wrote an essay for the site Mic. In her Mic, essay the ‘Orange Is The New Black’ Writer wrote:
“I realized I was gay in fall 2012, one of my first days on the set. It wasn’t so much one thing, but the sum of many small details: how uncomfortable I felt around groups of lesbians or how I considered myself (shrug) a “not very sexual person.” When considered alone, these seemed like little quirks that made me me. Wanting to read a book instead of have sex is a perfectly reasonable preference to have, right?
But on set, these small moments came into sharp relief, and I found myself answering to an endless stream of cast members who peppered me with questions like a gaggle of kindergartners curious about their new teacher. “Are you dating anyone?” “You’re married?” “To a man?” “But you used to kiss girls?” “Do you miss it?”
I was finally forced to consider a question that had never, ever occurred to me before: Holy shit, am I gay?”
We wish Lauren and Morelli and Samira Wiley the best. They better not let their personal life roll over into working on the show together. Netflix would lose subscribers over that.
