Dale Soules, who plays the role of no-nonsense inmate Frieda Berlin on the hit Netflix series ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK, has been promoted to series regular for the upcoming sixth season. Recurring in her role as a member of the 'Golden Girls" since Season 2, Soules' character boasts neck tattoos and knows a lot about murder. In a previous season, Frieda acknowledged that she committed a crime, one that left audiences speechless. Season 5 which takes place over three days, begins streaming Friday, June 9.
