But we should probably let you know how smart these guys actually are because they found the perfect actress straight away.

Daya's own daughter!

Dascha Polanco, that dashing actress who plays Daya on the show, gave birth to her daughter Dasany Kristal Gonzalez at age 18 and is now the spitting image of her mum.

As we said before, the casting team on Orange Is The New Black are smart. 

Very smart.
