Celebrating women in television: Dale Soules

By: Start TV Staff     Posted: September 17, 2019, 6:00AM

Dale Soules started her career in the theater, landing her first major Broadway role at just 22, when she starred in the original production of Hair.

Today, Soules is best known for her role as inmate Frieda Berlin on the Netflix blockbuster Orange is the New Black, based on Piper Kerman’s memoir about her time at a minimum-security federal prison. OITNB is the first series ever to score Emmy nominations in both the comedy and drama categories. Overall, it has earned 16 Emmys nods and four wins. 

“Jenji Cohen, who is the creator, the woman who came up with the idea to turn Piper Kerman’s memoir into a series, has said it was her way into the women's low-security prison,” Soules told StartTV.

She continued, “And once the audience followed [Kerman] in, then she could tell all of the other stories of the voices that are never heard and that have been either silenced or just not had an arena in which to speak.”
