Orphan Black: In Tribute to Tatiana Maslany

The mark of a really talented actor is if, when watching them play dual roles, the audience forgets that they’re watching a single actor. Maslany has this skill in spades – each character she portrays is so nuanced, and yet so meaningfully distinct, that it’s very easy to lose track of the fact that you’re just watching one woman. Sarah is as different from Alison as Alison is as different from Cosima as Cosima is from Helena as Hele – well, you get the picture.

Across the past few weeks, I’ve been making an effort to catch up on Orphan Black – I’m partway through the 3rd season, and I’m really enjoying it. The chief reason being, of course, Tatiana Maslany – she’s a genuine phenomenon. It’s honestly consistently astounding to see her performance each week; and thus, I wrote an article about it!
