Okay... that was an interesting talk.
No they did not ask anything re: Prepon, HOWEVER, and this reassures me greatly... Taylor said they will be shooting through the end of January.
I thought I had read that the first season shot over 3 months, which suggests they'd be 2/3 the way through season 2 by now. If they are shooting for another 4 months, then there's still hope that Alex could be in more than 1 ep. (I will cling to that hope till my last breath!)
I laughed when Taylor said she didn't know any of the other actresses before filming OitNB... then she stumbled and said... "OH... I knew Kate Mulgrew... she played my MOTHER in Mercy!"
Heck sweetie, anyone around Teacake for more than 47 minutes KNOWS she played your mother in Mercy!
