1. What differentiates an L.A. girl from an NYC girl?
L.A. is more laid-back. New York keeps you on your toes.
2. A friend is in L.A. for 24 hours. Game plan?
A hike in Runyon Canyon Park is definitely in order.
3. What's the NYC game plan?
See a play or musical, wander around the Met, and get lost in the Village.
4. What does L.A. do better than NYC?
It's obvious, but the weather just can't compare. I run off to the L.A. sunshine every chance I get.
5. What does NYC do better?
NYC's energy is inspiring on so many levels.
6. Your NYC–L.A./L.A.–NYC flight rituals?
Drinking a ton of water and catching up on The New York Times.
7. The one thing you wish you knew when you were younger?
That time is precious. Each day is a gift.
8. What keeps you up at night?
9. What brings you the greatest joy?
A good night's sleep.
10. What charities do you support?
I've been doing a lot with the Women's Prison Association. And I really like the Representation Project [a nonprofit that challenges gender stereotypes in the media].
11. Three things on your last credit card statement?
An Uber ride, groceries, and an amazing Rachel Comey top.
12. The guest list for your ideal dinner party?
Henri Matisse. I just saw his exhibit at Tate Modern. It was magical.

I am constantly cracking up on set with my fellow actors on Orange Is the New Black. They're such an amazing and hilarious group.
14. What makes you mad?
I dislike when people act helpless about the world's problems. We can all help make a difference.

My Acne Studios boots make everything look cool.

I just stayed at the Rosewood London, and it was dreamy.
18. What did you want to be when you were growing up?
I've known I wanted to be an actress since I was 11 years old. I was bit by the bug pretty young.

The Chrysler Building is an architectural gem in New York's skyline.

Trust your instincts.
