One of the main changes in Season 3 of Orange is the New Black was all the new characters the show featured. While the storyline of the season still revolved around the main characters in the show, a few of the new cast members have been getting some attention as well. One of the new faces receiving a lot of attention is Ruby Rose, who plays Stella Carlin in the prison drama.
To be fair, Rose isn’t a stranger to fame. The actress has built up a fairly decent fan base from her days as an Australian model and VJ. Furthermore, she is also known for her relationship with fiancee Phoebe Dahl, who is the granddaughter of Roald Dahl.
However, since her appearance in the Netflix drama, Rose has become one of the breakout stars in the new season. Part of the reason Rose has been getting so much attention is due to a brief nude shower scene, which, according to the Daily Mail, sent Twitter into a frenzy.
“Woke up trending on Twitter and I haven’t seen the show yet got me feeling realllll vulnerable right now! Hope you’re all loving the show,” Rose wrote on Twitter.
Apart from the Orange is the New Black shower scene, another reason she has become a breakout star this season is because of her interactions with Piper. The two started things off with Stella criticizing Piper for being ridiculous and self-entitled.
“Help! The burden of my genetic perfection, it’s so heavy and so unfair!” Stella told Piper during their time working in the lingerie factory in the prison. “Why do Bettys always go on about how nerdy they really are? It’s like, just f**king own it.”
However, despite the rough start, they eventually got into business with each other selling used underwear to outsiders. The business flourished throughout the season, and by the time Stella was ready to leave Litchfield, the two had made a considerable amount of cash.
But their good relationship, which included a little make out session, didn’t end so well. At the end of the season, Stella double crossed Piper and stole all the money they had made from the business. When Piper found out, Stella pleaded for forgiveness, which Piper didn’t feel the need to give.
In fact, Piper went a step further and framed Stella for illegal contraband. Piper’s actions lengthened Stella’s prison term, which left fans wondering if that would make her stay on Orange is the New Black last at least another season.
