Laura Prepon a dramatic star with 'serious' big screen potential. If someone had made such a statement during her time on the hit television show "That 70s Show" or just after the completion of the show it would likely would not have received a positive response.
However, in 2015 such as statement would likely be accompanied with very 'positive' responses such as 'without a doubt' as she has proven herself as one of the most talented comedic and dramatic actresses in Hollywood which has quietly made her one of the 'hot' in-demand actresses whom some casting agents, directors and producers of big screen projects are very interested in.
The talented actress is now considered by some insiders as a 'complete' actress and has developed a very loyal fan base through her "Orange Is the New Black" character, Alex Vause, a former drug dealer and ex-girlfriend of the character Piper Chapman. An example of how popular her character has become because of her portrayal is illustrated by her return to the show as a regular character in season three. In season two she only appeared in one episode and her absence seems to have been felt by both fans and the producers of the show that a change was made to recitify the situation.
Her transformation from co-star on one of the most popular comedy shows on television to actress who from the end of that show until being cast on "Orange Is the New Black" has been finding her way, has been nothing short of amazing and is an example of an actor who understands the importance of grinding.
She has become an in-demand actress through her sensational portrayal of Alex Vause likely become an actress who some agents are now using as an example of how to keep taking on different projects to help develop and refine one's acting skills while working to reinvent themselves as an actress.
Laura Prepon has become one of Hollywood's dramatic acting surprise whose impressive performances on "Orange Is the New Black" have made her a desired commodity as a big screen feature role actress in 2015.
