Netflix’s Wellmania, the cast: Yael Stone is Philomena
The actress playing Philomena in the Netflix TV series Wellmania is the Australian actress Yael Stone. She is best known for her role as Lorna Morello in the Netflix series Orange Is the New Black: you will surely recognize her in the scene below.
Yael Stone has been nominated for several awards for her acting, including the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series for her work on Orange Is the New Black. Her acting debut was with Spirited, an Australian series aired in 2010 and 2011.

Yael Stone is still relatively young (when Wellmania was released on Netflix, she was 38) and well-integrated into her environment. She’s already part of the cast in the upcoming Australian TV series One Night, and surely more roles are about to come. You can follow her other movies and TV shows on her Wikipedia page.
