The moment Danielle Gaudette was told who her birth mother was, "My world shrunk into a tunnel," she tells PEOPLE. "It was like 8 a.m., and I was waiting for a taxi to come and take me to work. The phone rang, and this woman said, 'We think we've found a match.' Immediately I'm like ... it's hard to describe. What is it? Fear? Panic? Anxiety? It was definitely adrenaline."
Gaudette, who was 22 at the time, recalls the woman on the phone saying, "We're all so excited at the office. Do you watch Star Trek? It's Captain Kathryn Janeway from Star Trek."
Her mom, of course, is Kate Mulgrew, Emmy-nominated actress of Orange Is the New Black, whose new memoir, Born with Teeth, details the 22-year search for the daughter she gave up for adoption. Now a yoga teacher on the West Coast, Danielle is speaking for the first time about reuniting with her birth mother.

It's not easy to make a not-so-good person likeable. But as Galina "Red" Reznikov on Orange Is the New Black, Kate Mulgrew does it oh so well.
The Irish-American actress, who has a string of successful TV roles under her belt, plays the fierce Russian den mother to many of her prison's younger girls, a woman with a tough exterior who's actually kind of crumbling inside. The role earned her an Emmy nomination for outstanding supporting actress in a comedy series.
