Itatí Cantoral Returns To ‘OITNB’ As Soraya For An Acting Lesson

Soraya Montenegro has returned to Litchfield Penitentiary.

Mexican actress Itatí Cantoral, who brought the telenovela villain to life in the ‘90s mega hit “María la del Barrio,” stars in a promo released Monday for the fifth season of “Orange is the New Black.”

The promotional video, posted on Facebook, begins with Marisol “Flaca” Gonzales finding Cantoral in her bunk. Instead of being terrified by her maniacal laugh and insults, Flaca reveals she is a huge fan and goes to get Maritza.

“No, they won’t hire me this way,” Cantoral says breaking character.

After Maritza tries her best to re-enact the famous “maldita lisiada” scene, Cantoral gives the two a lesson on how it’s done. By the end even Big Boo gets in on the action. 

Cantoral first played Soraya for “OITNB” last summer, ahead of the show’s season 4 premiere. At the time, Netflix told HuffPost the actress’ cameo would be limited to the promotional video and that she would not be a new inmate in the show.
