Orange is the New Black star Dascha Polanco isn’t worried about the assault charges against her.

During an interview with HuffPost Live, Polanco was asked about the charges, which allege that she assaulted a 17-year-old girl this summer, and whether or not those charges would affect the show.

When Polanco replied that the situation would not affect the show, she added that it would take “more than that” to keep her down and noted that she had been through rough times before after losing her mother.

“People that know me and know my quality, my professionalism, who I am […] They’re not worried. And neither am I,” she added.
