Laura Prepon is a major player in Season 4 of Netflix’s Orange Is the New Black, and it’s natural that viewers have lots of questions for the star, who portrays former drug smuggler Alex Vause, the love interest of the show’s main character, Piper Chapman (played by Taylor Schilling), who are both doing time behind bars.

During the Q&A, in which Twitter users could ask questions of the various OITNB actors, Laura made both big and small revelations. Without giving away any plot spoilers, here are 8 things we learned about her, and her character.

1. She loves to wear black.

2. She doesn’t play favorites amongst her castmates.

3. Or amongst her performances; she enjoys playing Alex as much as she did playing Donna Pinciotti on That 70’s Show.

4. Unlike Alex, Laura doesn’t have any tattoos.

5. She’s appalled by the violence being faced by the LGBT community.

6. The first episode of Season 4 was a challenging one for her to play.

7. She adores working with actress Lori Petty.

8. She doesn’t have any secrets to spill about Season 5.
