Lorna Morello (Yael Stone)

Backstory: Morello's obsession with West Side Story and wedding magazines conceals a checkered past: after a long history of online scams and stalking a man she went on one single date with, she planted a bomb under his fiancée's car — hence the prison sentence.
Place in Litchfield's hierarchy: Morello aligns herself with the white crew, and enjoys privileges other inmates don't, like driving the prison van for outside doctor appointments, etc.
Pre-OITNB: The Aussie was well-known within Sydney's theater scene, racking up awards and nominations, including one in 2011 for acting opposite Geoffrey Rush in The Diary of a Madman.
Best line: "You don't go Jessica Simpson when you've got Rhianna!"
