Catherine Wolters, aka the real-life Alex, was outraged because the show gets a lot wrong when it comes to Alex and Piper's relationship. Apparently the two of them had already been involved in the trafficking business long before they met each other. While she has spoken out about some of the discrepancies and fallacies of the show, a subtle trait that most fans might miss is that the glasses Alex wears in the show are the exact same that Catherine wears in real life. But, Wolters also admitted that making the show about their real relationship would be "so wretched and stinky, it would quite possibly result in a collapsed universe. So I guess it's a good thing Piper and Jenji stick with the fun little tidbits."
Kate Mulgrew (Red) and Taylor Schilling (Piper) actually have previous experience acting together. Kate played the mother of Taylor on the TV series "Mercy" from 2009 to 2010. Mulgrew also played Captain Kathryn Janeway from "Star Trek." There was a Star Trek reference between her and Nicky where Red revealed she didn't know who Spock was.
