Yael Stone Career
Stone began acting as a child, with roles in the film Me Myself I and the miniseries The Farm. She worked primarily in theatre; at the 2008 Sydney Theatre Awards, she won the awards for Best Newcomer and Best Supporting Actress for her performance in The Kid. She also worked in television, including supporting roles in All Saints and Spirited. From 2010 to 2011, she appeared in The Diary of a Madman (a theatrical adaptation of the Gogol short story), a role for which she was again nominated for Best Supporting Actress at the Sydney Theatre Awards. In February 2011, she travelled to New York City to perform in the Brooklyn Academy of Music’s production of The Diary of a Madman, before returning to lead roles in A Golem Story, Summer of the Seventeenth Doll, and As You Like It in Sydney.
Stone moved to New York permanently in December 2011 and co-founded an experimental theatre company. After four months in New York, she was cast in the Netflix series Orange Is the New Black, a show set in a women’s prison. Stone plays Lorna Morello, a prisoner from New Jersey; her accent, a mixture of Brooklyn and Boston, was called “the most amazing accent on television” by a journalist for The New Republic, while another reviewer deemed the role to be Stone’s “breakout turn”. She reprised her role in the show’s second season, and was billed as a series regular in the third season.
She has also appeared on the HBO and web series High Maintenance.

In 2012, Stone married Australian actor Dan Spielman, with whom she lived in New York City. In July 2017, Stone announced that her marriage had ended over a year before. Stone is an atheist.

On 30 May 2018, they welcomed a baby girl, Pemau Stone Bancroft.
On 16 December 2018, The New York Times published an interview with Stone, who accused Australian actor Geoffrey Rush of sexual misconduct during the production of The Diary of a Madman in 2010 and 2011. She alleged that he had sent her inappropriate texts that were “sexual in nature”, had touched her back in an “unwanted and sustained” manner at an awards show, had held a mirror above her shower cubicle while she was showering, and had danced naked in front of her in their dressing room.
Her brother is Jake Stone from the band Bluejuice.
On 7 January 2020, mid‑way through the 2020 Australian bushfire season, Stone announced her intention to give up her United States green card and return to Australia to campaign for climate protection or, as she described it, the “climate war”.
