We spoke with Emma Myles who returns as Leanne Taylor. Her character is a member of the "Pennsatucky Jesus crew." Read our exclusive interview with Emma below:

What can you tell us about Season 2?

I’m there! I still have super awesome teeth. Things are certainly changing in the prison there are a lot of dynamics that are shifting and that will be something that is really exciting to watch this season, but I can’t tell you who and I can’t tell you what is happening.

Were you shocked by the Season 1 finale?

I was shocked by the finale. I mean anytime you see someone get beat on that much you're gonna be pretty shocked, but you know Taryn always takes it like a pro and I’m sure she had a great time shooting that. I mean it’s a kind of show where you don’t really know what to expect so try not to really have a any expectations and when it happens you're like “yeah that’s the goods right there."

As a fan what story lines are you excited to see unfold this season?

As a fan, I’m excited to watch everyone. Everyone’s incredible; I mean I’m really excited to see Poussey and I’m really excited to see Taystee.

Are there any new backstories that we get to see?

There’s a lot of new back stories for all the people.

Can you speak about watching Taryn Manning transform into Tiffany 'Pennsatucky' Doggett?

I have nothing but a lot of good words to say about Taryn. I love her she’s incredible. And I was a fan of hers before I met her and when I found out she was going to be on the show I totally freaked out, so that was really fun. But yeah it’s really exciting to watch I think it’s a really really special character for her and it’s something she has a lot of fun just going crazy with. So it’s really really funny to watch.
