Welcome to the Clone Club!
BBC America's Orphan Black, the little clone show that could, has taken the Internet as its hostage and shows no signs of releasing its prisoners anytime soon. And we wouldn't have it any other way. So you could imagine our elation when we were given the chance to talk with the original clone herself Tatiana Maslany down in San Diego at Comic-Con 2013. Nerdgasms happened, feelings were felt, etc., etc.
E! News' Will Marfuggi caught up with the ridiculously talented (and so cruelly Emmy-snubbed!) Maslany at the Nintendo Oasis on the TV Guide Magazine Yacht, where she dished on season two, coming in April 2014, and revealed which of her many clones is her favorite to play...
"I think because we painted all of these clones into these amazing corners and there's so much tension and so much new information, ties being severed and created; everything has changed," Maslany previews of Orphan Black's highly anticipated second season. "I think [creators] John Fawcett and Graeme Manson are talking a lot about the theme of motherhood. I think the first season was a lot of sisterhood, so it's kind of this growing up almost; all the characters have changed and can't go back to the way it used to be."
Given that she plays more than six different characters on the show (including clones posing as one another), we had to know which clone is her favorite to play. Is it Sarah, the orphan looking to reunite with her child? Cosima, the indie science nerd? Or maybe Alison, the wine-loving soccer mom? "I love all of them honestly. They all have a very different energy. They all have a very different personality, a very different way that they see the world, so for me it's exciting. I get to play with all these different facets of myself and people that I've seen or known or from my imagination. It's a total feast for an actor."
But could we be meeting some new clones in season two? "We've lost some clones and hopefully we'll be seeing some more," Maslany hints.
