Life is imitating art for Taylor Schilling: On her hit show Orange Is The New Black, the 30-year-old is romancing a woman in prison—and off-screen, she’s fallen for Portlandia star Carrie Brownstein, 40 (who previously dated St. Vincent).
They film on opposite coasts, but the couple, first spotted together in March in Portland, “text, call and visit whenever they can,” says an insider.
Taylor has even attended shows by Carrie’s brand, Sleater-Kinney, in cities as far away as Glasgow, Scotland, tweeting her appreciation. “She loves everything about Carrie,” adds the source. “It’s rare to find someone special in this business. They’re doing everything they can to keep the spark alive! This could be the real deal.”
