Actress and LGBT advocate Laverne Cox has made quite an impression on her "Orange Is The New Black" co-stars.
Taryn Manning, aka Pennsatucky, stopped by "The HuffPost Show" on Friday and said that Cox's wise words about gay and trans issues have helped many of show's actors and actresses understand the nuances of the LGBT community.
"I've never had a big angle on [LGBT issues] until actually I met Laverne, really, because she's a public speaker and she's amazing. You can really learn a lot from her," said Manning, whose new film "Cleveland Abduction" airs on Lifetime May 2nd.
As Manning explained, the cast would often sit with Cox to listen to her thoughts on various LGBTQ issues.
