Interview: Kate Mulgrew (ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK)

We are in the golden age of television right now. Yes our TV channels are still clogged with lots of bad reality TV but thanks to the likes of HBO, AMC and now Netflix, finally money is being invested back into quality entertainment and we are getting the likes of Breaking Bad, Mad Men, House of Cards, and now Orange is the New Black.

Kate Mulgrew stars as Red, the prison’s head honcho (for want of a better word), in this new must see TV show.

I recently caught up with Kate to talk about this gem of a role, why a show set in a women’s prison is resonating with so many and the women are finding a place in countless hearts, what’s in store for Red in season 2 and lots more. Listen below.

Orange is the New Black was not in contention  for this year’s Emmys (it screened after the nominations date closed) but I have no doubt that this time next year it will be dominating many of the Drama categories!

If you haven’t watch Orange is the new Black, do. A word of warning though, bingeing will ensue – but it is so worth it!

That’s Entertainment!

About The Bellissimo Files

Hi, I’m Sarina Bellissimo and this is the place I come to indulge in my love of all things entertainment. I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t fascinated by all things Hollywood/showbiz. I blame my parents! As a child my mum used to force me to watch old Elvis Presley films with her, and both my mum & dad would take my brothers and I to the Drive-In to watch the latest films (this is where my love for ROCKY began!). When not watching movies, I was trying to figure out ways to pull the back off the TV so I could somehow get into it and be a part of all the action on the screen! This blog isn’t a place that revels in gossip and negativity. It’s a place where entertainment is celebrated. That said, this is a place you can turn to for honesty. Honesty and criticism don’t always mean attacks. I choose to criticise the piece of work but not the person and I acknowledge that just because I don’t like something, it doesn’t mean someone else won’t. Here you’ll find interviews with some of the biggest names in the world of Entertainment, reviews, breaking news and my very own musings. Away from The Bellissimo Files, you can find me on Spin 1038 on Saturdays, between 1pm and 3pm,presenting Plan B. There’s celebrity interviews, entertainment news, the low down on the must see movies and music releases of the week, the ultimate guide to what’s on where in the city, as well as masterclasses with experts on standby to answer listeners’ questions. I also appear on TV3’s “Elaine” panel, talk movies on “Ireland AM” and you can sometimes hear me filling in on Moncrieff’s “Movies and Booze “(Newstalk) The Bellissimo Files is constantly evolving. Files (topics) will be added or deleted as time goes on. Feel free to read, watch, comment, share, and make suggestions for what you would like to see on the site. Sarina
