Wayland and West Roxbury-bred actress Taylor Schilling, who got her big break opposite Zac Efron in the Nicholas Sparks adaptation “The Lucky One,” was in Santa Monica, Calif., on Tuesday to celebrate the release of her new Netflix series, “Orange Is the New Black.” The show, which will be released by the on-demand service in a bundle of episodes, just like the latest season of “Arrested Development,” is based on the memoir by Smith grad Piper Kerman, who served time for laundering drug money. Schilling plays a version of Kerman in the show (the Internet Movie Database calls the character Piper Chapman). In real life, Kerman is married to writer, editor, and frequent Boston visitor Larry Smith. On the show, “Larry Bloom” is played by Jason Biggs.
