Taryn Manning wasn't afraid to take on the role of Michelle Knight, though her mom couldn't help but express her concern.
In Cleveland Abduction, the Orange Is the New Black actress plays the oldest of the three women who were held captive by Ariel Castro for nearly a decade before their daring escape in 2013.

The ladies of Litchfield Penitentiary are back and better than ever.
Netflix released the trailer for Orange is the New Black's second season Thursday, and it finds the inmates full of sass and snark. The whole gang returns for round two – besides religious fanatic Pennsatucky (Taryn Manning), conspicuously absent after the season 1 finale's violent cliff-hanger. But Piper (Taylor Schilling) is in especially fine form, apparently put in solitary due to the scary altercation.
"Sadly, it's starting to feel like home in here," she quips of her white-walled cell.
She won't stay settled for long. A new prisoner, simply called "V", arrives to shake things up. She immediately incurs the wrath of Red (the two seem to be long-lost enemies) yet clicks with Crazy Eyes (Uzo Aduba).

Attention Orange is the New Black fans: The Ladies of Litchfield are back for a brand-new season.
"The beauty of this show is how we straddle the line between comedy and drama," Taylor Schilling, who stars as Piper Chapman on the prison-based series, tells PEOPLE. "It's a true ensemble. In season two, we'll see how Piper's story continues, but the show also gets wider and deeper to tell the stories of even more of the women."
In addition to Schilling, other fan favorites – including new dad Jason Biggs, Laura Prepon, Kate Mulgrew and Taryn Manning – will return, while newcomer Lorraine Toussaint joins the cast as inmate Yvonne "Vee" Parker.

New shade? Time to take it out on the town!
Sporting a fresh new hair color, Taryn Manning hosted a private dinner for her colorist Beth Minardi on Tuesday in New York City.
The Orange Is the New Black star chose The Lion restaurant for her event, with the meal taking place inside a library-like room. Beauty editors and people close to Minardi were also in tow.
Showing off her new cinnamon toast-shaded mane, Manning, clad in Catherine Malandrino, "was in good spirits and arrived with a female friend," an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "She looked great and expressed excitement over having a night of beauty, given that her TV character is the complete opposite."

Actress and singer Taryn Manning was arrested Thursday morning and charged with assault after a fight with her makeup artist in her New York City hotel room.
Manning, 33, allegedly punched and kicked the woman in an early morning fight, which occurred at the Dream Downtown Hotel in the city's Chelsea neighborhood, the same place where Lindsay Lohan was involved in an automobile accident with a pedestrian recently, TMZ.com reports.
According to Manning's defense attorney Joe Tacopina, the whole incident was blown out of proportion.
