Before she became known as Suzanne “Crazy Eyes” Warren on Netflix’s “Orange is the New Black,” Uzo Aduba was like all of the other New York actresses—struggling to make ends meet and looking for her next gig!  The Emmy-winning actress, who has literally taken Hollywood by storm, talked candidly on the TODAY show this morning about the moment she almost gave up on acting but changed her mind after one phone call. She also talks about landing the role of ‘Glinda’ in the upcoming NBC live adaptation of “The Wiz” and how anything is possible, if you just believe. Check out the motivational interview below:
