Eye on Emmy: Orphan Black Star Tatiana Maslany Gender Bends, Gets Kinky and Improvises Rage in Season 2

Orphan Black Season 2 Memorable Moments

It’s hard to top Tatiana Maslany‘s debut season on BBC America’s clone thriller Orphan Black, during which she played at least seven different characters.

But as Season 2 has delved deeper into grifter punk/mother Sarah and her sisters, Maslany has outdone herself, bringing new layers and emotions to her many roles. To top it off, a fresh clone, unlike any other on the series, presented the actress with a new challenge: stepping into the manly shoes of transgender Tony.

It’s no surprise then that Maslany is a TVLine dream Emmy nominee and has garnered nominations for a Critics Choice Award and a Television Critics Association Award, both of which she won last year.

As Season 2 prepares to wrap up on Saturday (BBC America, 9/8c), TVLine invited Maslany to look back at her many clones’ memorable scenes from this year. (Check back at this very URL after Saturday’s finale for one more choice moment.)

    I have loved all of Tat’s performances except the one where she played Tony. That one just wasn’t convincing enough and was the only time in the series I felt didn’t do well. I wonder what episode was submitted. Also, Tatiana has had to kiss an awful lot of people this year: Patrick J. Adams, Jordan Gervais, Dylan Bruce, Kristian Braun, Evelyne Brochu and Michael Huisman.

    • Sara says:

      I hope they submitted the episode with Sarah & Helena in Rachel’s bathroom….all the feels!!

      • Jax&Juice's Girl says:

        Agree, that was a tense reunion with Sarah and Helena. But I say should submit the scene with Sarah pistol whipping Rachel’s bitch ass in her office pretending to Cosima!

    • Maggie says:

      It’s wasn’t Maslany’s performance that was the problem with Tony. I think if the hair and makeup was better, Tony would have been convincing. The long hair and the very fake-looking facial hair failed Tatiana.

  3. Thanks for this! Tatiana is awesome! I would have loved to hear her thoughts about conducting an autopsy of “herself” (the Jennifer prop/dummy) in 2×03 with Evelyne!

    I always enjoy hearing her thoughts on all the different characters and how she goes about playing them. It is clear that she puts a lot of thought and effort into getting each one just right. It definitely shows.

    Not sure how her name can not end up on the Emmy Ballots this year. She is best in show.

    • Julie says:

      She seriously is. Not only the fact that she plays so many characters but she plays them so convincingly enough that it seems like different actresses are playing them.
