The actress wrote: "I'll do anything with this one..."

Lauren added a heart emoji when she shared the happy snap on Instagram.

Orange Is The New Black is set in a women's prison and frequently focuses on lesbian relationships.

Samira plays inmate Poussey Washington in the Netflix series.

Lauren came out publicly two years ago in an article for Mic, where she wrote that she realised she was gay on one of her first days on the set of the prison dramedy in 2012. She later filed for divorce from her then-husband.
