REMEMBER Galina "Red" Reznikov from Orange Is The New Black? Well the actress behind the Russian inmate now looks completely different.

Kate Mulgrew portrayed flame-haired prison masterchef Red in 85 episodes of the hit Netflix series between 2013 and 2019.

The 66-year-old recently took to Instagram to treat her 260,000 followers to a glam snap alongside actress Mary McDonnell at last year’s New York Comic Con.

In the photo, she appeared in a simple black top and pendant necklace as unrecognisable blonde locks tumbled over her shoulders, while Mary wore an elegant tan blazer and stylish tortoiseshell glasses.

Kate captioned the post with a subtle nod to her role as Kathryn Janeway in Startrek: Voyager and Mary’s as President Laura Roslin in Battlestar Galactica.

She wrote: “Feeling powerful with fellow leader Mary McDonnell in my corner! We make a good intergalactic team, don’t you think?”

In the comments, fans were full of praise for both stars, with many immediately cracking the science fiction reference.

“Two powerful women of sci-fi!”, one wrote.

A second added: “The president and the Admiral from two of my favorite shows. Ain't that some s***! Excuse my Texas vernacular”.

“This is all I’ve ever wanted”, a third commented.

While a fourth simply said: “Iconic”.

The pic comes the year after Kate appeared on Mary’s Lady Bam Podcast, where the pair sat down to talk about Kate’s new book, How To Forget: A Daughter’s Memoir.

The duo also discussed their mutual experiences growing up in Irish-American households, as well as Kate’s New York play, The Half-Life of Marie Curie.

In another nod to their sci-fi characters, the host joked in the episode’s synopsis: “A starship captain and the president of the universe walk into a bar… well, almost!”
