Aduba, weeks before the red carpet goodbye event was featured on the cover of Vanity magazine alongside other cast. She shared a copy of the publication on her Instagram handle with the caption:
“The power of women. I got to be a part of the beginning of something special seven years ago, with some incredibly strong and talented visionaries. They changed my life forever. Thank you @variety for this cover. Link in bio for how @oitnb all began and how this team will say goodbye.”
