Orange Is the New Black star Kate Mulgrew is taking her role "Red" behind the cameras.

"Kate is the most disliked cast member," an insider revealed to Mulgrew has "alienated the cast" by demanding scenes be reshot, debating with the writers about her character's lines and also criticizing her co-stars.

"Kate's got a lot more experience than most of the other actresses and she never lets anyone on the set forget it," the source says. "[She] thinks she's the star of the show and everyone else is just scenery."

Meanwhile, Laura Prepon (Alex Vause) revealed that she's only in four episodes of Season 2 due to scheduling conflicts with another project, according to the Daily Beast. As she's not a series regular, Prepon wasn't under contract to appear in all episodes but wanted to be involved as much as possible.

"Basically, I wasn't a series regular and wasn't under contract, and then had a scheduling conflict that came up during Season 2. But I love the show and I love my character, and I told Jenji [Kohan] from the get-go, 'I want to be in as many as I can,'" Prepon said.

"So we did, and I'll be in four episodes for Season 2. And then if we get a Season 3, I'll be in every episode. I totally missed the show. It sucks, but there's only one of me, and there's only so much time in the day. We did what we could, and if there's a Season 3, I worked it out so that wouldn't be an issue anymore."

"Orange Is The New Black" Season 2 premieres on June 6.
