Actress Uzo Aduba stars in the new season of Orange Is the New Black, streaming now on Netflix but the 34-year-old Emmy winner reveals what it was like to visit the White House. She reveals that every once in a while she’ll look to google for a good recipe and sometimes a girl just needs a good spa day, when she chatted with PEOPLE this week about “one last thing”

Last time I was starstruck
I got to take my mom to the White House, and we sat across from President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama at dinner. They were everything you want them to be: so smart and lovely.

Last thing I cooked
[The Japanese restaurant] Nobu has the best marinated black cod, so I Googled the recipe. It called for the fish to be marinated for three days, and I was worried it might go bad. I literally trusted some stranger on the Internet with my life. But it worked and was delicious.

Last thing I lost
I don t know if they re actually lost, but one of my favorite pairs of earrings is not where I think it should be. I put them in my purse and now I can t find them. They were these little gold earrings with just the slightest drop. I loved them. I m really sad about it.

Last indulgence
I just had a spa day. I needed some time to myself where I could just relax. I loved every single second of it, and I did not feel bad at all about silencing my phone.
