Kasey Sankey is an inmate at Litchfield Penitentiary, introduced in Season Four as a primary member of the white pride movement initiated by Piper Chapman. She is portrayed by Kelly Karbacz.


Sankey is a white nationalist. She is outspoken on her prejudices against the women of color in the prison, and typically has no qualms with turning to violence when disrespected. Despite being proud of being a white supremacist, she does not want to be called a "Nazi" and consistently points out that she isn't like fellow supremacist Brandy. However, she does show restraint at times such as refusing to hit Suzanne Warren even when pushed to do so by Thomas Humphrey, as well as walking away from an altercation in the yard with a grieving Janae Watson even after being punched. As much as she dislikes people of color, she grows to notice that not all of them are bad and has commented that she is 'tired' of fighting with them.

Physical Appearance

Sankey has dirty blonde hair and tanned skin. She wears her hair down and never wears any make up.


Before Litchfield

Sankey has a husband and a child. When she was informed that she was facing prison, she gave her blessing to her husband allowing him to sleep with her best friend. However it was meant to be purely physical. During riot in Litchfield in season five, she obtains a phone and finds out on Facebook that her friend is fully involved in her husband and her child's life.

Season Four

Sankey is introduced as one of the many new inmates at Litchfield.

Sankey sees Piper posting posters around the prison advertising her new "community carers" group. Sankey seems to take interest in it, and invites some of her friends to the first meeting, who all turn out to be intense, outspoken racists ("We'll Always Have Baltimore").

Sankey tries to engage with Piper, calling her "sister", but Piper is still shocked at what she inadvertently created with the Community Carers initiative and avoids her.

Sankey, Leanne and Angie appear at Maria's group's shelter and tell them to disperse as part of the new, racist, anti-gang initiative approved by Piscatella. The Latina's ignore Leanne and Angie's failed attempts at talking, so Sankey steps in and is racist to Cabrera, causing a small outburst. The gang of "carers" are backed up by the guards, causing outrage ("Piece of Shit").

Sankey is later seen trying to pin down Piper, discussing new ideas for the white power group. She mentions that her brother runs the Philly chapter of the Aryan Brotherhood and suggests getting connected and official, but Piper leaves quickly ("It Sounded Nicer in My Head").

Sankey shows little to no remorse over Poussey Washington's death, and even mocks her, saying that they should not use a body-bag to take Poussey away. This sparks a burst of anger from Janae Watson, Alison Abdullah and Cindy Hayes. Janae punches Sankey, causing Helen Van Maele and Brandy Epps to get involved as well. Sankey ultimately walks away from the altercation, as she notes the black girls are grieving ("Toast Can't Never Be Bread Again").
