Taylor Schilling, star of the wildly popular Netflix series "Orange Is the New Black," injured herself while shooting a sex scene with co-star Laura Prepon for the show’s third season.

"I hurt myself. I got very excited, I took my shirt off, and I scratched myself with my little nametag. There was a gash on my face, there was blood," Schilling told "Late Night's" Seth Meyers last week.

After realizing her cheek was bleeding, the crew halted filming the scene because of the “raw” gash.

“We had to just add the scar into the rest of the (season),” the actress said.

Prepon, who starred on "That '70s Show," also commented on the scene in question in an interview with Cosmopolitan.

“Naturally when you're doing a love scene — especially a hate-love scene where you're beating each other up — that's an interesting dynamic,” she said. “Doing a sex scene and then a tag cuts [Schilling's] face, it's kind of funny. It's interesting to portray that when there's an entire crew watching you, tweaking everything."

"Orange Is the New Black" is one of Netflix’s most popular originally programmed shows. The series' success is credited with helping raise Netflix’s 2014 revenue to $1.146 billion, even greater than HBO’s 2014 revenue of $1.141 billion, according to Inquisitr. The show is also the third most pirated TV show on file-sharing networks, says Digital Trends.

The comedic drama is credited for featuring a diverse cast, which reportedly helps its popularity.

“There are women of all different shapes. Many of the characters are over 40. There are short women, straight, gay, old; everyone is represented here,” Lorraine Toussaint, an actress who plays a drug den mother on the show, said, according to the New York Post.
