Laura/Donna #19: Because She Finally Got Out of Point Place

Welcome to the Laura Prepon/Donna Pinciotti Appreciation thread.

Laura Mini Biography:

Known as Big Red due to her 5’10” frame and naturally red hair, Laura Prepon has been a staple on the young Hollywood scene since starring in That ‘70s Show (Fox, 1998-2006 ) as Donna Pinciotti, the quintessential girl-next-door.

Born March 7, 1980 in Watchung, NJ to father, Michael (an orthopedic surgeon), and her mother, Marjorie (a teacher), Prepon was fifth-born in a family that included a brother, Brad, and three sisters, Danielle, Jocelyn and Stephanie. Unfortunately for the tight-knit siblings, their father died in 1993 from complications during heart surgery.

Prepon attended Watchung Hills Regional High School until she caught the acting bug at age 15, deciding to quit regular school and transferring to Total Theatre Lab, a specialized theater college based in New York City. As she continued to hone her acting skills, Prepon appeared in such plays as “A Woman of Property” and "Ascension Day,” as well as began to study dance: ballet, jazz and modern.

Due to her striking, unique look, the aspiring actress soon began landing modeling jobs both stateside and abroad, jetting around the world to fabulous locations such as Paris and Milan. Despite the glamor of it all, Prepon grew disillusioned by the cutthroat nature of the modeling world. She felt that showbiz would be less competitive, so she changed careers midstream.

Prepon’s life changed forever when she sent an audition tape to the creators of That 70's Show, a show about teenage buddies growing up in Wisconsin during the carefree 1970s. The creators loved her, sending her a plane ticket to Los Angeles to audition one-on-one with the top contenders. Of course, Prepon won the role and was perfectly suited to playing Donna Pinciotti, the dry-humored girl-next-door of the group. The show was a hit from the start, lasting eight years.

With her profile raised by the show, Prepon became a vital part of the new millennium’s young Hollywood scene. The ravishing redhead was ranked #50 in Maxim Magazine's "Hot 100 of 2002" supplement, as well as #84 in Stuff Magazine's "102 Sexiest Women in the World” that same year. She has been on two Maxim covers, once as a redhead and once as a blonde.

Knowing her days of wearing bell bottoms were limited, Prepon continued to hone her skills in films like Karla (2005). Despite the conclusion of her sitcom’s run, she had two movies slated for release in 2006: Come Early Morning, starring Ashley Judd, and the TV movie Romancing the Bride.

She currently stars as Alex Vause in the Netflix series Orange Is the New Black.

Laura Quotations

"[Nobody knows I'm] modest. When they meet me, they think I'm going to be outgoing, but I like things lowkey. I don't like people to think I'm bragging."
"I'm a Jersey girl and proud of it."
"Free love sounds great."
"Even in real life, I'd rather hang out with guys."
"I'm the tomboy so I got to be a little butch"
"I never wear makeup. When I wear makeup on [That '70s Show] I take it off as soon as I can. I just like the au naturel thing."
"I love Donna. She's so much like me: trusting and honest."

I just read the Laura quotes in the OP, based on those I think we could hang out rather well.

I don't think she -- or any other poker player -- would mind, as long as they win your money.

Are you good at bluffing?

Donna, of course, cheats (as we saw in season 1).
