Orange Is the New Black Video: Meet the New Inmate, Judy King!

Blair Brown and Samira Wiley reveal everything you need to know about Judy

Sadie Gennis

Orange Is the New Black's return is only a few months away, but why should we wait before getting to know one of Litchfield's newest inmates?

As fans will remember, cooking show host Judy King (Blair Brown) wound up getting sentenced to Litchfield in Season 3, much to the delight of super-fan Poussey (Samira Wiley). And though King might resemble another famous culinary convict, Martha Stewart, Brown says there's far more to Judy than initially meets the eye.

"I think a lot of people think, 'Oh, she cooks, so she's like Martha Stewart.' 'Oh, she Southern. She's like Paula Deen.' She's actually Judy King, a creation of Jenji [Kohan] and the writers," Brown explains.

"She's slightly appalling and very good and very cheerful and probably fairly amoral," she continues. "And it's interesting to watch because she's so other than anybody else in prison. And of course, Judy's greatest ally when she comes in is Poussey Washington."

See what else Brown and Wiley reveal about Orange Is the New Black Season 4 in the video above.

Orange Is the New Black returns Friday, June 17 on Netflix.
