Asked why she makes her home in New York City as opposed to Los Angeles, where there may be more acting opportunities, Taylor Schilling says, “I like walking.” Regardless, the Boston native has made it work.

Take her latest project, Netflix’s new original series, Orange is the New Black — based on Piper Kerman’s memoir Orange Is the New Black: My Year In a Women's Prison — which required no trips to the coast, since it’s filmed in Queens. “I was really interested in the story, the character of Piper,” says Schilling, who turns 29 July 27. “I didn’t even think about the Netflix of it all. That’s how I personally consume entertainment these days.”
