Uzo Aduba got to embrace her glam once again for the pages of Harper’s Bazaar!
The “Orange Is The New Black Star” is being featured as part of the magazine’s 2014 Women Who Dare feature. She’s in some great company as actress Jessica Alba, model Christy Turlington and rocker Debbie Harry are all being highlighted in Women Who Dare.
One of the most daring things that Uzo’s ever done is to go against the grain and follow her dreams, but she didn’t have a straight shot to success. In fact, her casting as Crazy Eyes on “OITNB” came along just as she was ready to give up on her acting career and pursue something a little more buttoned-down.
“My family is from Nigeria, and when I was a kid, my parents wanted me to be a lawyer,” she explained to Harper’s Bazaar. “I thought, ‘You aren’t meant to be an actor.

See for yourself when you check out some of the shots she shared from her modeling session below!
