Katherine Kiernan Maria "Kate" Mulgrew
Katherine Kiernan Maria "Kate" Mulgrew, aka Galina Reznikov, or "Red" in Orange is the New Black, is undoubtedly a spitfire. Her name, both IRL and on the show, is a mouthful, but that's nothing in comparison to her attitude should anyone try to mess with her or her crew. Red is inspiring as the head chef at Litchfield in OITNB: She leads with an iron fist, fierce loyalty, and maybe even a little compassion — as long as you're on her good side.
