If you haven’t tuned in to the popular TV series Orange is the New Black, then you're really missing out. It’s in its seventh season, and it’s still going strong. Adapted from a book by the same title, the show takes you into the life of a female inmate and the people around her. This is no soft look at the prison life from a female point of view. It's full of nudity, torture scenes, beatings, and plenty of other things that will make the show hard to process at times. But isn’t that what prison's supposed to be like? It’s definitely a show to look into mainly because of the cast that's jam-packed full of talented women who are easy on the eyes. The show is awesome for so many reasons, and if you haven’t already, now would be a good time to binge watch it on Netflix. Or better yet, make it a night for two, and Netflix and chill.
Speaking of girls who are easy on the eyes, the cast of Orange is the New Black is often seen on the beach during their time off from the show. If you want to see some hot babes in bikinis, then you came to the right place. We've scoured the web looking for the steamiest beach photos of these sexy ladies, and they're right here! Check out the cast of Orange is the New Black in their sexiest bikinis.
15 Dascha Polanco at Home on the Beach
Dascha Polanco looks like she belongs on the beach. She's stretched out, looking as if she's learned the fine art of relaxing. We could all probably use a dose of that. Originally from the Dominican Republic, these days, Polanco now lives in Brooklyn. She’s part of the Orange is the New Black team, and she even had her own daughter on an episode of season five, which must've been amazing to experience. Shockingly enough, Polanco was arrested for assault on a teenager in 2015, but the charges were later dropped when police discovered that it was all part of an extortion plan by a neighbor. Sounds like there are scandals all around this girl. She got the role on Orange is the New Black after she attended the audition in her hospital scrubs. She was attending nursing school and working at a hospital before she got the role. Lucky girl!
14 All Eyes On Diane Guerrero
This girl looks like she's having the time of her life. She's most known for her role on Orange is the New Black, but she's been in Hollywood, working consistently for a while now. Guerrero knows more about the hard life than just what she portrays on the show. She was homeless and alone for a time when she was 14 years old because her parents and brother were deported from the U.S. “I broke down. I hid under the bed because I was afraid that somebody was going to come for me. I don't know who that someone was, but I was just so scared. Not a single person at any level of government took any note of me. No one checked to see if I had a place to live or food to eat, and at 14, I found myself basically on my own.”
13 Laverne Cox Showing Off Her Curves on the Beach
We couldn’t agree more that this girl belongs in a bikini because she has curves that we've never seen before. That black bathing suit is showing the world that she knows that her body is amazing and that she’s going to show it off. She dealt with a lot of bullying in high school from both her peers and her teachers for being who she was. A teacher once said to her parents that she "would end up in New Orleans wearing a dress if we don't get him into therapy right away." That can be a lot for a child to take at such a young age, and so Cox started a movement to help others. As a spokesperson for the transgender movement, she said, "Some folks, they just don't understand. And they need to get to know us as human beings. Others are just going to be opposed to us forever. But I do believe in the humanity of people and in people's capacity to love and to change.”
12 Laura Prepon Belongs in a Bikini
Again, not technically a beach shot, but we can’t help but add these shots of Laura Prepon because she looks absolutely divine in a bikini. She’s like the poster child for why bikinis were invented in the first place. With a toned tummy and ample cleavage, Prepon becomes the epitome of every guy’s dream. She can be an opposing figure at times, as she stands over six feet tall, and when she was acting alongside Mila Kunis on That 70’s Show, she often had to be in sitting scenes so she wouldn’t tower over the actress. There were times when Kunis would also wear platform shoes so that their height was a little more evened out. She also hated her clothes on the show. "It's not that I really hate the clothes, I just don't like all the polyester. And the bell-bottoms -- the big ones -- are pretty bad. Some of the stuff that Wilmer wears is bad.”
11 Diane Guerrero Showing Off in the Sun
There’s a good chance that Diane Guerrero is beside a pool and not sitting on the beach, but we're grabbing this shot anyway. Looking like she's never been happier in her life, the girl is stunning in a bikini and a black sun hat. It’s funny how her name in Spanish means “Warrior” considering all the struggles that she's had, but it looks like those struggles are behind her. Now, she just wants to work on her art. She’s doing exactly that with her role on Orange is the New Black. “I feel like you can't really be truthful as an artist and empathize with the human experience unless you know your truth and you're not living a lie. So I'm learning through it, and it's making me a better person, and it's making me a better artist, I think."
10 Laura Prepon Showing off Cleavage
She's come a long way from That 70’s Show. Laura Prepon has proven that she's a force to be reckoned with in Hollywood. We love this photo of her as she's laid out, looking sexy in a bikini. Prepon has everything you could ever want in a bikini shot, like a thin waist and some great cleavage. She’s always been known for that deep husky voice that she has, and it’s certainly part of her sexy charm. She's a natural redhead as we saw on That 70’s Show; she just dyed her hair black to play the role on Orange is the New Black. You might be surprised to know that this girl is part of a cult: “So, when I first got into Scientology, I did 'Personal Values' and 'Integrity' and then 'Overcoming Ups and Downs in Life'. These courses touched on the observations I was aware of when I was younger. It was right there in black and white. It was amazing, and I felt that finally, something was speaking my language. It totally connected with me. Pretty soon after that, I got onto the 'Purification Rundown', and I started moving up the Bridge" (IMDb).
9 A Sun-Kissed Taryn Manning
Taryn Manning looks very relaxed and happy in this photo of her on the beach during a vacation. She has an easy smile on her face, and she looks fantastic in her purple bikini. Manning has had a lot of great roles in Hollywood on many TV shows such as Sons of Anarchy, Law & Order: SVU, and Hawaii Five-0. She,s also been featured in movies such as 8 Mile, Cold Mountain, Love Ranch, and Crossroads with Britney Spears. This girl is a triple threat because when she isn’t acting on Orange is the New Black, she's also a fashion designer and a singer-songwriter for the electronic duo Boomkat. Pretty impressive, Manning! This girl is all about becoming at peace with herself. “Sometimes, I do Buddhist chanting. I'll go to the center and chant. That's always nice. When I'm chanting and I lock into the vibrations, it clears my mind. I don't stress. I feel lighter and elated and free. And then after chanting a tozo, I feel empowered by the wisdom not to worry so much about the things we can't control. I deal with uncertainty better.”
8 You'll Have Crazy Eyes for Uzo Aduba
This girl is sizzling in the black-and-white bikini as she spends time with her Orange is the New Black co-stars on the beach. She looks happy and relaxed as she hangs out on the beach, and what more could she want on a day like that? She was going through a long dry run of auditions when she got the role of “Crazy Eyes” on Orange is the New Black. It came at a good time because she was about to throw in the towel with acting. “There's a myth out in the world that women can't work together. And I don't know if it's a 'chicken or an egg' thing or what, but it's not true. I think it's an idea that is put out there maybe to divide and conquer. It's something that I just have to write off as being a lie. If you bring good people together, regardless of gender, they're going to collaborate and support each other.”
7 Danielle Brooks is Looking Red Hot
Wow! What a stunning shot of Danielle Brooks showing off her curves while on vacation. This plus-sized woman has no problem with the curves that she has and we've never seen a more self-assured woman. She's relaxing and taking advantage of the time off that she has. “I am a woman who takes health very seriously and [I am] trying to live the most beautiful life that I can,” she says. “I just went to my doctor, and they said my blood pressure is great, and I’m very healthy. If at any moment that changes, I’ll work on that.” She's definitely conscious of her health and that’s what is most important. “Sometimes, it does feel like, with magazines that are talking about [women’s] health, we’re being ignored. There are women that are 300, 400 and 500 pounds that don’t feel like they can ever reach an ideal size. Hopefully, we can encourage women that want to become more healthy to look to women who are size 14, and work towards that.”
6 Badass Ruby Rose
Sporting a sexy bikini while on vacation in Ibiza, she looks like she's ready for some fun. The bikini is pretty amazing and looks like a beach shot right there. This badass actress is a new addition to the show, and she's often seen jumping off of yachts. She's made the most of her celebrity status and has made some waves in Hollywood. She was actually unemployed for two years before she got the role on Orange is the New Black. It’s a good thing because she has a great love of acting, “I could live my whole life being so comfortable doing things I've already worked hard to not be nervous at, or I could continue to push the envelope and make myself uncomfortable and learn and see what I'm capable of, and acting is definitely that.”
5 Miami Beach Beauty Jackie Cruz
A sexy shot of the actress of the hit TV series while she’s at the beach while on vacation. It’s a shot that shows off her incredible figure. She has actually been singing and acting her whole life before she got the role on Orange is the New Black. She was named as one of the “Top Latino Powerhouses in Hollywood Under 40,” a huge accomplishment that put her alongside Eva Longoria, Demi Lovato, and Selena Gomez. She was working as a waitress when she got the coveted role on the show and even continued to waitress until filming became too much for her and she had to quit her waitressing job, though we're sure she's grateful to be acting rather than waitressing. She's also working as a singer and is working on an English/Spanish EP that she's hoping to release in the near future.
4 Almost Topless Natasha Lyonne
This sexy actress almost went topless as she was gallivanting in the water with her Orange is the New Black co-stars. The waves undid Natasha's top, and she was scrambling to get her boobs back inside. She doesn’t seem to worry about it, as she's photographed laughing the entire time. She's been in numerous TV shows and movies over the years. She's had a long career in Hollywood, and she doesn’t seem to be slowing down. It’s probably because of her entertaining spirit. “I would have done well as a gypsy child, I think. A circus baby. I coulda played a great street urchin or ragamuffin. Or just been one. I certainly liked entertaining people and making jokes, but I don't know necessarily if that's what your child is prone to that you should necessarily put them in a real working industry at six years old. By the time I was 16, I was already an exhausted cynic.”
3 Powerlifting Body of Samira Wiley
This girl is stacked! Talk about a fit and lean body. This is a girl who walks around proud of her strong physique, and nobody better mess with her. Maybe that’s why she plays such a good part on Orange is the New Black. She's a mad talent who's been in the industry for many years as well as a graduate from Julliard. She’s been in many popular TV series such as Law & Order: SVU, The Handmaid’s Tale, and, of course, Orange is the New Black. You may have seen the beautiful actress in Nerve, Detroit, The Sitter -- just a few of the movies she's been in. She even got to play Michonne in the video-game version of The Walking Dead: Michonne, though it's a puzzle why they didn’t just use the actual actress.
2 Tough Girl Ruby Rose Shows Off Her Sexy Side
It’s not technically a beach shot, but we can’t help it if Ruby Rose spends so much time on yachts. She’s a yacht jumper after all, and she’s not about to stop anytime soon. The reason Rose is often seen on so many yachts, aside from the fact that she’s taking advantage of the invites, is that she often DJs for her friends' parties. This girl is a Jack of All Trades. Ruby Rose is the granddaughter of famous boxer Lionel Rose, so we can certainly see where she gets the tough act from. She used to participate in amateur boxing matches as well. It probably prepared her for her role on Orange is the New Black where she had to be involved in the prison brawls. One thing is for sure: we can’t get enough of her tatted body. It’s obvious this girl has a lot of pride in keeping her figure looking amazing.
1 Samira Wiley Creating a Scene
We just love Samira Wiley because of her zest for life. Looking at this photo of her in a white bikini, we can’t help but love her to death. This is the kind of body that requires a lot of time in the gym, and we're thankful for that. She's jumping around in the water as if she were a little kid, probably having more fun as well. She doesn’t seem to be the kind of person that shies away from life in any way. She married the show's writer and producer, Lauren Morelli, this year after a five-month engagement. With a solid career in Hollywood and a new marriage, it looks as if Wiley has her hands full these days. Wiley has also been known to dabble in producing as well and has a few projects going into post-production for 2018. We look forward to seeing the skilled actress in the future.
