Taylor Schilling

Yes, of course, I think she's cute, but I also think she's a viable candidate for "the next Meryl Streep." Anyone agree?

by Just watch OITNB again...reply 259Last Friday at 12:53 PM

I really liked her on that show "Mercy" from 4 years ago. It was a good show but only lasted one season.

Much better than some of these other overrated actresses out there right now.

by Just watch OITNB again...reply 108/04/2013

She's better than her critics say, but let's not get carried away.

What kind of a last name is Schilling? Is she Austrian?

by Just watch OITNB again...reply 708/05/2013

More like the new Michelle Pfeifer

by Just watch OITNB again...reply 808/05/2013

Since she's the star of the Atlas Shrugged films, which were financed by teabagger assholes for propaganda purposes (by their own admission) I'm betting she's probably a Rethug.

And if so, fuck her.

by Just watch OITNB again...reply 908/06/2013

Schill post. F&F!

by Just watch OITNB again...reply 1008/06/2013

Please, r9, she's dyked out with everyone on Orange Is the New Black.

She plays a great bitch, but in the early eps of OITNB she faded into the background next to Kate Mulrew and most of the supporting cast.

by Just watch OITNB again...reply 1108/06/2013

I can't believe she's 29, looks much older.

by Just watch OITNB again...reply 1208/06/2013

I like her...I think she has range. Orange could launch her.

by Just watch OITNB again...reply 1308/06/2013

I've only seen her in Orange is the New Black (which I loved until the last episodes of the season which took a nosedive). I love the entire cast of the show. Schilling was perfectly cast and her comic timing is exceptional. I'd criticize the Streep comparison, OP, but it also occurred to me based on her personality and look; it's going to take an extensive range and body of work for someone to truly convince me she has a Streep thing going on though, and Schilling has yet to have a chance to deliver anything like that.

by Just watch OITNB again...reply 1408/06/2013

Her teeth are distractingly over-whitened, though.

by Just watch OITNB again...reply 1508/06/2013

I think she's wonderful on OINTB. I grew up in CT and she is so spot-on as a moneyed, entitled CT princess.

by Just watch OITNB again...reply 1608/06/2013

I think she snagged a role with rare range and made the absolute most of it. She does ugly and beautiful, feminine and butch, comedy and intense drama, and all equally well. I really think she's someone to watch. (I don't know that she'll ever find a co-star with whom she has more chemistry than Laura Prepon, though!)

by Just watch OITNB again...reply 1708/06/2013

I have no idea what orientation Schilling and Prepon are in real life, but they play a lesbian couple like nobody's fucking business!

by Just watch OITNB again...reply 1808/06/2013

[quote]I can't believe she's 29, looks much older.

I know! I can't believe it either. She looks at least mid-30's. It's the gaunt face and thin skin on her neck that makes her look so old.

She looks like Jared Leto!

by Just watch OITNB again...reply 2008/06/2013

I owe Mercy on DVD. Love that show. I also was shocked to find out she was 25 back in 2009! I thought she was at least 30-35 yo. Wild.

R18 Do they use strap-ons in the show?

by Just watch OITNB again...reply 2208/06/2013

No strap-ons r22, but Lea Delaria did fuck herself with a screwdriver. So there's that.

by Just watch OITNB again...reply 2308/07/2013

She looks haggard. While not ugly, she does fall short of being pretty. I don't think she lays gay convincingly. Or straight. She just isn't sexy.

by Just watch OITNB again...reply 2408/07/2013

She was on Watch What Happens Live tonight and is absolutely adorable, but is Andy Cohen the most annoying human ever born, or what??

by Just watch OITNB again...reply 2508/08/2013

I wonder what she's making of all this "Laura Prepon is leaving the show!" hubbub. Everyone associated with the show has obviously been commanded to shut the fuck up about the whole situation, so we may never know. I, for one, think it's much ado about nothing, and that Prepon will return for fewer episodes, and that's all there is to it.

by Just watch OITNB again...reply 2608/17/2013

She really grew on me. I thought she was rather bland in the beginning, but seeing her transform in prison I started to understand why they cast her. Loved seeing her go off on Healy and beat the stuffing out of Pennsatucky.

by Just watch OITNB again...reply 2708/17/2013

She, Maggie Lawson (from that new fall series with James Caan) and Alicia Silverstone all look alike to me.

by Just watch OITNB again...reply 2808/17/2013

She's quoted Rita Mae Brown on her twitter yesterday, something about not conforming to make other people happy. Trying to tell us something, Taylor?

by Just watch OITNB again...reply 2911/26/2013

Her first tweet: "I think the reward for conformity is that everyone likes you except yourself."

Immediate second tweet: Rita gets it! Xxxx

by Just watch OITNB again...reply 3911/29/2013

She was apparently a megabitch on the Mercy set but that may have been because she basically carried the show despite it being a show about three nurses. And she'd done next to nothing before then.

by Just watch OITNB again...reply 4011/29/2013

I agree. She looks late 30's, but is only 29!!!

Wasn't Buffy's little sister on Mercy? She's supposedly kookoo.

I don't like that they're turning Crazy Eyes into a Magic Negro. She was much better as a real lunatic than as a fake, New Age-y Loveable Sweet Person With Controllable Mental Health Issues and Deeply Poetic Empathy.

Crazy people who belong in psych institution are imprisoned. It's a real problem for everyone and they're sweeping it under the rug by domesticating Crazy Eyes.

Is the OP a parody post? Obviously, no one thinks this mediocre-at-best actress is the next Meryl Streep.

by Just watch OITNB again...reply 4411/29/2013

43, off topic much? She might not be gay or bi, but she's doing a bang up impression of someone who's in the closet: Never refers to a significant other in interviews, uses gender neutral pronouns, side steps lesbian questions (when they are asked, which is very seldom considering she plays a bi woman in Orange, I think she has an effective PR team). Oh, and it seems like she has a little crush on straight costar Prepon in the only shared interview of them available. Ok, the last point is obviously subjective;)

I want more gossip about her time on Mercy - I think she said in an interview that it wasn't a very happy experience for her.

by Just watch OITNB again...reply 4511/29/2013

I think she looks her age (thirtyish). She gets some harsh lighting on her show.

by Just watch OITNB again...reply 4611/29/2013

So it seems she is not straight:

SSN: Piper is truly alone at the end of season one after Larry ends their relationship and Alex says Piper can’t come running to her. How did Piper’s fluid sexuality strike you when you first read the scripts? Schilling: It rang really true for me. It’s the world I live in today, where sexuality is quite fluid, it’s about a person rather than a gender. Piper recognizes something that’s real. The way it’s dealt with in the show is the way I feel about it personally. I was very excited to be involved in a relationship where sexuality was so casual. It didn’t strike me as strange. It’s more strange that we don’t see that more often.

by Just watch OITNB again...reply 4712/05/2013

That's as close to coming out as "bisexual" as you can get without actually saying the words, right?

by Just watch OITNB again...reply 4812/05/2013

I hate this "sexuality is fluid" bullshit. With the exception of a VERY small few, most people are either gay or straight.

She just needs to come out.

I just read that Laura Prepon is dating Tom Cruise- both scientologists...

by Just watch OITNB again...reply 5012/06/2013

That has been denied by all parties involved, r50. The only thing they have in common is that they're both in the COS and know each other casually.

by Just watch OITNB again...reply 5112/06/2013

Glad for her Golden Globe nod, but surprised that's the only one for the show. I guess it's because it's a "dramedy?"

by Just watch OITNB again...reply 5212/13/2013

She is from Wayland, MA which is a very white upper class liberal town outside of Boston. She's also of the generation that views gay as just another way to live so I don't think her response to questions about Piper's sexuality mean anything necessarily attributable to her own sexuality. I worked in Wayland; they're all well educated and its a very all encompassing, all accepting kind of place.

by Just watch OITNB again...reply 5412/14/2013

Her parents were divorced and one parent lived in Wayland and the other parent lived in either Dorchester or Roxbury - some inner city Boston place. So things weren't *all* upperclass roses for her.

by Just watch OITNB again...reply 5512/14/2013

I agree that the interview alone does not mean She is gay or bi. For me, it is her avoidance of pronouns in all interviews, and the lack of "How did you prepare to play a lesbian", "How was to make out with a woman" questions posed at her. Her pr team seems very efficient.

by Just watch OITNB again...reply 5612/14/2013

West Roxbury is nothing to brag about. It abuts Hyde Park - which just last month had a human torso lit on fire in a street at 9am, Roslindale - inner city crime 'burn, and the poorest part of Dedham - East Dedham, where the projects are. Back in the 80s, when Schilling was growing up, all of these places were even poorer and less gentrified and more racist and classist.

I admit, It does seem like she could be gay. Either she values her privacy in her personal life, or she values her privacy and doesn't feel like telling the world she likes pussy. Either way, smart move. Can you imagine how awkward interview would get?

The Taylor Schilling blind item should be easy to solve!

Someone needs to posts pics of her from the awards, and since she apparently didn't bring a date, just look for any woman who makes more than 1 appearance in her photos.

I wonder what her type is?

by Just watch OITNB again...reply 6601/16/2014

She was with co Stars prepon, lynne and Aduba at the netflix pre globes party saturday and at the globes. All three identify as straight, though she did spend her Christmas holfiday with lynne in Puerto Rico (Per lyonne's instagram), and had the folllowing, though likely platonic exchange, with prepon when leaving the globes (crank the volume way up).

Okay, I did the creepy internet/facebook stalking thing. Her family seems very close and supportive of Taylor. Her grandma seems like a cool person and the whole Miller family seems like artsy type or people.

No support for gay rights in any of the family members. If Taylor were indeed gay or bi you'd think such a close family would express support for the LGBT community?

Maybe r77 is right?

Any thoughts?

by Just watch OITNB again...reply 8002/06/2014

The next Meryl? She appears to a lesbian (allegedly). Dating history consists of a bearding for a gay guy, and a bunch of pronoun game answers when asked. That's going to be a problem for people trying to sell her as a heterosexual lead.

I am 99,9% confident she is gay, there's literally nothing that points to straight. Bi leaninging towords women, maybe. I wonder how she felt about Ellen Page coming out since Taylor always talks about the importance of being authentic and true to yourself. I get why she stays closeted as her career is just now taking off, but we'll see how long she stays in.

by Just watch OITNB again...reply 8502/17/2014

I like Taylor, and maybe she's changed but this:

[quote]Taylor always talks about the importance of being authentic and true to yourself.

I wouldn't take too seriously. Whether she's gay or straight, she went along with a PR showmance with a gay guy, so she's not exactly the authority on being true to yourself.

by Just watch OITNB again...reply 8702/17/2014

well, the genes are there: Tay's grandma is bi (as per her facebook profile, not sure if she has changed it recently). strange how Tay did not tweet about Ellen Page's coming out, although she keeps tweeting about being honest and true to yourself. And all those Emily Dickinson quotes! Hmmmm. Come spill the beans, Tay.

by Just watch OITNB again...reply 8802/17/2014

Taylor Schilling if she is a closeted something, she is a closeted bitch. She lacks the naturality of Ellen Page. Taylor is just a natural doubled face bitch, either you like it or not.

by Just watch OITNB again...reply 8902/17/2014

I don't care if she is a bitch. I am not gonna marry her (though I wouldn't kick her out of bed, if you catch my drift). I just think she's gay and seems to have a super efficient PR team behind her as she has never been asked in interviews about her relationships (apart from the question re. Zac Effron, which I found hilarious because the guy is soooo gay).

by Just watch OITNB again...reply 9202/18/2014

If no-one asks Taylor any questions about her private life whatsoever when season 2 is on and the cast do interviews, I will take it to be confirmation that her PR team do not allow those questions because she is gay and she does not want to come out, R92. Other actors are constantly asked such questions, nobody seems to care to ask TS one or two questions about whether she is single, etc. She has only been asked if she would like to have kids, but that's another thing.

R123, Laura Prepon is straight and seems to really understand how impactful it is to have a lesbian representation in the visual media. Taylor is cute, but seems to shy away from all of that. When asked if she considered herself to be a bisexual icon, the first words out of her mouth were "Oh God, no...!" She seems really flaky regarding her support for the female bisexual community.

by Just watch OITNB again...reply 12606/27/2014

Playing the indeterminate pronoun gender name game isn't proof of much. She could just be trying to be inclusive.

by Just watch OITNB again...reply 12706/27/2014

Prepon has been in the public eye for a long time and it's been established she's straight. She's probably more comfortable with the attention OITNB brings and I'm pretty sure she knows she's not headed for the A-list. Taylor appears to be struggling with not alienating the gay community but also not destroying her career as a leading lady by being labeled as gay. Say what you want but it would prevent her from getting roles. Girl seems pretty serious about acting and will go back to mainstream movies after OITNB.

by Just watch OITNB again...reply 12906/27/2014

I wouldn't say she's the weak link of Orange Is the New Black, but she's not one of the standouts, either. And, as the closest thing the show has to a lead character, she should be.

Taylor is not racist she dated a Latin guy for years. She is a complicated person and at times a mess. During college she would go for days without showering and would let us all know when she and her bf had sex.

Lesbians keep talking about this show but women's prison shows have been done to death and done better (try Bad Girls). The Schilling girl isn't interesting. The new Streep? Don't be ridiculous.

Just because a program has some lesbians in it doesn't mean you have to sing its praises.

by Just watch OITNB again...reply 14907/07/2014

I enjoy the show, but not because of Taylor Schilling/the Piper character, who is a total snooze. Some of the lesbian characters/storylines are interesting and well-acted, but also not necessarily the show's main draw; several straight characters have good stories, too.

She isn't straight. I bet the poster above me is full of shit. She's getting more famous, especially after that Emmy nomination, and still doesn't have a boyfriend, or any actual dating history. But sure, she's 100% heterosexual.

by Just watch OITNB again...reply 15607/15/2014

Acting talent is not innate. It's about the training, the classes, the ability to learn the nuances of different mediums (film vs. stage), and the preparation/work that an actress does. (On this note, I watched an indie movie last night and thought the acting was terrible...then realized i was watching a bunch of probably talented stage actors who had lots of experience in comedies but didn't learn acting for camera--or didn't have director's guidance to pull back their performances and facial expressions--their faces were acting for an audience 50 feet away when the camera was 2 feet from their face).

Streep will spend up to six months training for a feature role. That's how she nails accents and skills (like learning to play the violin).

Who the fuck knows what Schilling is capable of based on her very impressive work on this one tv show?

by Just watch OITNB again...reply 15707/15/2014

Three thoughts from a lesbian:

1. I don't get her appeal. I just don't get any "sexy vibes" from her.

2. somehow it is difficult to believe Laura Prepon isn't even bicurious. But then, she is a $cieno so who knows what she has to suppress and keep under wraps

3. some of the (lesbian) fans are scary and creepy. And obsessive.

by Just watch OITNB again...reply 15808/26/2014

Her most obsessive fans think she is dating Carrie Brownstein. Um no, more like they're forming a clique with Fred Armisen and Natasha Lyonne who ARE suddenly fucking/in love/dating/whatever. I don't see the irl appeal either, but then I've never seen her irl (but neither have her fans).

by Just watch OITNB again...reply 15908/26/2014

Why is it so hard to believe she's dating Carrie? Fits with Carrie's ex being upset.

by Just watch OITNB again...reply 16108/26/2014

R159, Prepon must be pissed about Lyonne/Armisen. Didn't he dump and divorce Scieno Elizabeth Moss?

Schilling isn't interesting enough for all this drama about her. It's just lesbian drama and she seems to be doing whatever she can to fuel it.

by Just watch OITNB again...reply 16208/26/2014

R162, I doubt Prepon gives a fuck but I bet Lyonne's boyfriend did when he found out a couple weeks ago.

Lyonne/Armisen will be an interesting one to watch. Do you think it's a future trainwreck or for keeps? I'm LOL-ing at their relationship much more than I could ever be interested in what or who Schilling is doing.

by Just watch OITNB again...reply 18010/25/2014

My explanation for Lea DeLaria's tweet is that Taylor is bisexual and probably had a boyfriend while she was on the show at some point. She probably just assumed she was straight.

R177, there was a Crazy Days and Nights blind items that sounded like it could be related to Taylor. There have also been some posters on L Chat that seem legitimate, among thecrazy posters. I don't think there's much on her out there--she doesn't seem into the lesbian scene.

by Just watch OITNB again...reply 18110/26/2014

James Ransone dumped Taylor around Christmas 2013. Taylor is a very insecure, slightly troubled and very clingy person who jumps from one relationship to another almost as often as she changes her undies. But she was really into JR and used to over share to cast mates and her few friends about their hot sex.

by Just watch OITNB again...reply 18212/08/2014

The new Pfeiffer was a better prediction, and sometimes she reminds me of Carole Lombard in that she's beautiful and funny and has a look that isn't limited to a certain time. I can see her play rich or poor. She has range. I'm not a big Meryl fan, though, so I don't think it's heretical to suggest Taylor might have a great career ahead of her.

I enjoy Taylor in OitNB very much. Hell, I even binge watched Mercy, her failed nurse drama and thought it wasn't horrible.

Whether she's a harmless, ditzy lesbian or a bitchy, racist straight chick in her private life, I know one thing is true:

SHE DONE ROYALLY PISSED SOMEONE OFF. And they're using the net to get the word out.

My knee-jerk reaction was denial because I like Taylor. I don't want any of it to be true. But she wouldn't be the first actor who turned out to be a total asshole. Gotta reconcile that with my love for Piper.
