Taylor Schilling admits she's not exactly eager to peel off the orange jumpsuit to show the world what's underneath.
"I've been scared of the nudity," Schilling, 30, said during a panel for the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences' screening of Orange Is the New Black in West Hollywood on Wednesday. "Just as an actor [that] has been frightening for me."
But if filming a nude scene is what's needed to get to the heart of her character, the star isn't afraid to undress. The actress, who plays Piper Chapman on the hit Netflix show, made the admission after she was asked about the last time she called show creator Jenji Kohan to talk about a scene.

As the winner of a Daytime Emmy Award for her MTV docuseries, Laverne Cox could find her work as an entertainer colliding with her work as an activist and outspoken advocate for LGBT rights.
However, Cox, 30, maintains that being an actress comes first, which can sometimes be challenging.

As a curvy woman, Danielle Brooks has always struggled with society's standards of beauty – she even wrote a whole essay about it recently for Glamour. And now that the Orange Is the New Black star is a role model for women like her – well, it's clearly an overwhelming blessing.
The actress, 25, who plays Tasha "Taystee" Jefferson on the Netflix show, broke down in tears talking about the topic Wednesday at an Academy of Television Arts and Sciences "For Your Consideration" screening of the show in West Hollywood.
"Being a woman of curves, I really find that it's very important to talk about loving your body where you are," she said during a panel discussion. "People's beauty standards [are] something I've definitely struggled with in my life. And I'm just so grateful to be on a show where people love me, Taystee, for who she is – and they've come to love Danielle for who I am, and it's not because I'm a size 2 and it's not because I'm light-skinned with long hair."

Orange Is the New Black takes its premise from prison reality – but spins it for successful, if unrealistic, entertainment, says the real-life inspiration for the character of Alex Vause in the hit Netflix series.
"If prison life were really like they depicted in the show, there would be a line to get in," says Cleary Wolters, the ex-lover and partner in crime of Piper Kerman, whose prison memoir of the same name inspired the show that premieres its third season next month.
"Lesbian sex everywhere you go? Parties in the cafeteria?" Not true, says Wolters, 52, who tells her version in her own memoir, Out of Orange, which recounts her redemption after an unwitting start in the heroin-smuggling ring in which Kerman came along.
Along the way, Wolters separates the show's fiction from fact.
