An award-winning actress, activist, producer and mom, Alysia Reiner is committed to spreading her passion on the screen, stage and in the world. Best known for her role as Natalie “Fig” Figueroa on Netflix’s Orange is the New Black, Reiner recently joined the cast of HBO’s The Deuce for season 2 and returned for season 3 of FX’s critically acclaimed, Peabody Award winning Better Things. An environmentalist at heart, Reiner is also a star in the eco-friendly world with her completely green Harlem brownstone renovation which has been featured in various magazine and television shows. She’s also one of the founders of Livari, a zero-waste women’s clothing line (livariclothing.com).
The busy mom and change maker for women supports many charities and causes that are dear to her heart. She is an ambassador for the Geena Davis Institute for Gender Equality, a member of TIMES UP, and recently received a MUSE “MADE IN NY” AWARD from the Mayor’s office and New York Women in Film and Television. Her latest movie project, EGG, is one that she plays the role of both producer and star. It’s a comedic ride that puts the spotlight on the good, bad and sometimes not-so-pretty world of motherhood.
