All you Orphan Black fans, hold on to your dreadlocks because there’s a real-life Cosima!
In this exclusive video from the acclaimed thriller’s Season 1 DVD/Blu-ray release (in stores Tuesday), star Tatiana Maslany and creators John Fawcett and Graeme Manson share the inspiration for the evo-devo geek.
A friend of Manson’s from before the series’ start, Cosima Herter, serves as show’s science consultant and as such briefed its leading lady on the “insane” premise, says Maslany in the DVDs’ “Send in the Clones” featurette. “It just gave me such a key into that world because I could see the connection, how it’s emotional. It’s about humans. It’s about life.”
Meanwhile, hair stylist Sandy Sokolowski and makeup artist Stephen Lynch discuss the fictional PhD student’s “West Coast, maybe Berkeley vibe.”
Press PLAY to watch the sneak peek and make sure to buy a copy — or two, or three; it is a clone show — of the DVD tomorrow.
