“The essence of Hinduism is that it has no essence. What defines Hinduism and sets it apart from other major religions is its polycentricity, its admission of multiple centers of belief and practice, with a consequent absence of any single structure of theological or liturgical power. Unlike Christianity, Buddhism or Islam, there is no one single canonical text — the Bible, the Dialogues of the Buddha, the Quran — that serves as a fundamental axis of hermeneutical or doctrinal endeavor, recording the words of a foundational religious teacher. (The Veda is only the earliest in a diverse corpus of Hindu texts.) Hinduism is a banyan tree, in the shade of whose canopy, supported by not one but many trunks, a great diversity of thought and action is sustained.”

Aritzia: The morning of our shoot, Orange Is the New Black scored seven Emmy nods, and Samira Wiley is all smiles—and eager to leave. “They’re celebrating on set right now,” says the Juilliard grad, who plays the hilarious but vulnerable Poussey Washington on the breakout Netflix show. Fame “happened so suddenly,” Wiley explains. “When the show came out, people could watch [the whole season] in a weekend, so I feel like our lives changed less gradually than people on network TV shows.” Not that she’s complaining: “It’s awesome to go through it with all the other girls. I feel like we’re a family.”

It took me a really long time to accept that I could be an actor. I had been doing acting since I was ten years old but I never got acknowledgment for it until I got accepted to Juilliard. It was like, Oh, we know you’re passionate…and now maybe you’re talented too!

The number of times you’re going to get stopped on the street and get asked to take a seflie with someone is something to keep in mind. I don’t ever want to look busted these days. Not even to go to the corner store for ice cream!

  • Mum: I think I want to watch that series you were watching a few weeks ago
  • Me: Which one?
  • Mum: It was something like 'orphan is the new black'
  • Me: That's two separate shows
  • Mum: No
  • there was a one with dark hair in glasses that you thought was hot
  • and i'm pretty sure she was a lesbian
  • because she was going out with that blonde lady
  • Me: That still could be either show
  • Mum: I think there were clones
  • Me: There we go.
