I was lucky enough to work with the incredibly talented Yael Stone again earlier this year for a portrait for Oyster’s Australian only issue, on sale now. The last time we met in 2011 she was just about to go to New York to audition for a then little known Netflix project called Orange Is the New Black. 12 Emmy award nominations and 2 seasons later and Yael’s star is most definitely rising fast. Oh and that thick New York/Bronx accent she has in the show? Well the reality is that her Australian accent is about as thick as her fan base, which (if you count being recognized by the local electrician) is spreading like wild fire. Oh and just to really impress you, she came up with it the night before her audition. Yup. She really is that good.
