Who Plays Piper's Roommate on Orange Is the New Black?

This Is Why You Recognise Piper's New Bunkmate on Orange Is the New Black

There have been a lot of changes in Orange Is the New Black's fourth season, not the least of which is the massive influx of new Litchfield prisoners. One in particular, Piper Chapman's new bunkmate-turned-bodyguard, probably struck you as familiar . . . and we've finally put our fingers on why. Jolene Purdy, who plays Hapakuka on OITNB, also played the memorable Cherita Chen in 2001's cult-classic film Donnie Darko. Apparently, when Donnie tells Cherita that things would get better for her, he doesn't foresee her future prison sentence.
