#Quote
1There's a myth out in the world that women can't work together. And I don't know if it's a chicken or an egg thing or what, but it's not true. I think it's an idea that is put out there maybe to divide and conquer. It something that I just have to write off as being a lie. If you bring good people together, regardless of gender, they're going to collaborate and support each other.
#Fact
1She and Edward Asner are the only two people to win Emmys in both Drama and Comedy categories for playing the same character. Asner played the character of "Lou Grant" in Mary Tyler Moore (1970) (Comedy) and in Lou Grant (1977) (Drama), while Aduba owes her Emmys in Comedy (2014) and Drama (2015) for her performance as "Crazy Eyes" to Orange Is the New Black (2013)'s switch from the Comedy to Drama competition (due to newly introduced Emmy rules in the 2014/2015 season).
2After having mostly unsuccessful auditions, Aduba got the call that she got the role of Crazy Eyes on "Orange is the New Black," 45 minutes after she decided to quit acting altogether.
3Aduba told NPR interviewer Michel Martin that her full first name, Uzoamaka, means "the road is good" in her parents' country of origin, Nigeria.
