Is orange the new wedding white? While most engaged couples often include their friends and relatives in their nuptials, the wedding party of Lea DeLaria on the other hand will be chock full of her on-screen prison family! The "Big Boo" actress revealed to People that her Orange is the New Black costar Uzo Aduba will be singing at her upcoming wedding to fashion editor Chelsea Fairless. And "Crazy Eyes" won't be the only lady of Litchfield to partake in the ceremony!
At yesterday's 67th Emmy Awards Governors Ball, DeLaria divulged some star-studded wedding details, including the spotlight vocals of her big day. "We know that Uzo is going to be singing at the wedding. She said yes," DeLaria shared. "Chelsea and I both love Uzo's voice and the way she sings, so it was sort of a no-brainer to ask her to sing at the wedding." We couldn't think of a more perfect performer than Aduba, who previously showed off her pretty pipes on their hit Netflix original series. Think she'll sing "Prisoner of Love" or "Jailhouse Rock?"
Other on-screen inmates who plan to make a jailbreak for the wedding ceremony? Lori Petty (Lolly Whitehall on Orange), who DeLaria said will serve as flower girl, and Emma Myles, who plays fellow-prisoner Leanne and who introduced the couple three years ago.
"Orange has really changed my life in a lot of ways," DeLaria shared. A wedding is all about being with the ones you love, so who better to stand beside DeLaria on her big day than her friends from the fictional prison yard?
