If you are a Netflix fanatic ( like myself ) then chances are you've probably watched the first 2 Seasons of Orange is the New Black and anticipating Season 3. For those of you who have no idea what Netflix or Orange is the New Black is .. read below and click on the highlighted links.


Uzo Aduba is a Nigerian-American Actress is more popularly known for her role as "Suzanne Crazy Eyes Warren" in Orange is the New Black. She studied at Boston University and then went on to pursue a successful Career in acting.

1. Her birth name is Uzoamaka Nwaneka Aduba . When she was in grade school she asked her mother to chance it since nobody could call it. Her name in Igbo actually means "The Road is Good".




2. She was an Ice skater! Remember that scene in Orange is the new Black where she did that triple axel? That was real and could be credited to her days as an Ice Skater.



3. She was nominated for 1st  her first Award in 2003. Though most people might see her copping Awards such as "Most Outstanding Actress" at the Emmys, Uzo got her first Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Play at the Helen Hayes Award back in 2003.



4. She is great friends with Lupita Nyong'o! Birds of a feather Flock together ( talented birds).




5. "Crazy Eyes" was created for her . When Uzo auditioned for a role on Orange is the New Black , they told her she did not get the Role ... but another part is being offered to her. That role was Crazy Eyes.

  1. Nope, I have never seen Orange is the New Black. I Have heard of it, but I am not into prison shows, so it's not likely that I will be watching that one :)
