She doesn't know any spells, but Kate Mulgrew thinks she may have been a witch at some point.

The Orange Is the New Black star talked to the U.K.’s ITV about some of the more... unconventional parts of her childhood, including the fact that she was born a fully-toothed baby who could feel no pain.

"They're pearlescent, they're blue," the 61-year-old actress said, of her rare condition, being born with a full set of teeth. "And they’re very dangerous because the baby can swallow them."

Mulgrew says her parents had to take caution with her, which included having the teeth removed and even locking her in a cage! But why?!

"They built me a little cage, because I had no sense of pain until I was four years old," she explained. "So I was born with teeth and had no sense of pain. Shakespeare would have had a field day. It's a witch! That's what a witch is."
