Danielle said while expressing her wish of having females of different size and color,
"I don't want to be limited because of my size,I want to be the love interest. I want to wear makeup, I want to put on heels and put on my Spanx and look fabulous and have some man be doting over me. I want to be in a thriller movie. I want to be in an action movie. I can run up, stuff! I don’t want people to feel that I can’t do things or I’m not attractive because of that — that’s what I want to see.”

“From day one! I had to be topless in a scene with Taylor [Schilling] in the shower, and I didn’t know how much they were gonna show of my ta-tas. So when that happened, that was the first thing, I was like, ‘Parents, look, Mom, Dad, yo, I think I might have to do this. I told them, and they were like, ‘No! No!’ They’re going to hate me for saying that, but they did.”
That time, she even though of dropping the role,
“To be honest I didn’t know Orange was going to be one of those dream jobs, I almost turned it down in the beginning because there was possibility for nudity.”
