STAYING IN

These OITNB stars have announced they're in a band together

Jackie Cruz and Madeline Brewer of OITNB have announced they will be joining musical forces 

The latest update out of the exciting (and addictive) world of Orange Is the New Black is that two of the show’s lovely ladies will be delving into another creative venture together: music. 

Jackie Cruz, who plays cute AF latina, Flaca on the show is also a lead singer for band The Family Portrait and over the weekend, the actress and musician announced that her ex-OITNB cast mate Madeline Brewer will be joining the band. 

You’d be forgiven for not immediately recognising Brewer; in everyday life, she looks nothing like her character on the show, Tricia Miller.

Brewer played blonde, braid-wearing, drug-addict, 19-year-old, Tricia during the first season of the show who sadly died of a drug overdose during her time in prison.

Brewer and Cruz have remained close friends over the years and now are getting the chance to work together again with this new project.

And while we’re a teeny tiny bit sad to hear Samira Wiley (who played our absolute fave, Poussey Washington) isn’t also involved in this OITNB musical team, we really can’t wait to hear these two together!

In the meantime, here’s a cute video of some of the other cast members (including Cruz and Wiley) singing:

Enjoy!
