“Orange Is The New Black” Actress Michelle Hurst Just Got Out Of A Coma

  • The cast of “Orange Is The New Black” revealed today that the actress Michelle Hurst, who played Piper’s no-nonsense roommate Miss Claudette, awoke today from a 16-day medically-induced coma. Hurst was in a severe car accident before the holidays and needed several surgeries. Currently there is a fundraising page on YourCaring.com — tweeted out by Orange author Piper Kerman this morning — which has already gone past its goal to help cover Hurst’s medical expenses. Get well soon, Miss Claudette! [The Wrap]
