Orphan Black’s Tatiana Maslany On How The Show Normalizes The Female Lead

“I think there’s quite a few reasons but I think what it does is it sort of normalizes having a lead female. It’s just, the default. So often the male perspective is our default perspective in television in film and in all kinds of different media and I think what this show does is it just goes, ‘nope.’ Women can be all these different things. It’s played by the same actress but we have the potential for so many things and not defined by how we look necessarily because it’s just me…I don’t feel responsible, I feel proud of it. I don’t feel like it has to be “right” or all-encompassing. I think, Jordan, you’ve talked about that quite a bit with Felix too that we don’t have to represent every type of person out there but it’s just nice to have outsiders as the leads.”Tatiana Maslany answering Cloneversation host Wil Wheaton after he brought up how much the BBC America series Orphan Black has resonated with women.

New Orphan Black Poster, Clone, and Picture. It’s a Tatiana Maslanypalooza!

And a new coat-hoodie-thing. I do like that coat-hoodie-thing. In addition to the very first poster for season two, premiering on April 19th, we have a video introduction to a new clone, as well as a quote from co-creator John Fawcett on how she comes to be introduced to the plot. Jill, our resident Orphan Black fanatic, warns that the info trends toward the spoilery, so keep that in mind if you want to go in to season two unsullied.

Also behind the jump: A picture of Tatiana Maslany running into trouble with someone not played by Tatiana Maslany.

Fans Do Cool Things

Orphan Black Fan Starts Crowdfunding Campaign For Tatiana Maslany Award

Because Tatiana Maslany is an amazing actress and did not win an Emmy or Golden Globe for her depiction of EIGHT FREAKING CLONES on BBC America’s Orphan Black, one fan has decided to do something about it. Sarah Evans sent me a link to the Indiegogo campaign she started to get the actress her own special award – a Clone Club Award! “I want Maslany to have an award specifically from her fans,” she writes. “I am commissioning an artist to create a unique awards statue specifically for the fans of Orphan Black to give to her.” Evans is looking to raise just $2,000, which I think is an easily attainable goal for the series’ many dedicated fans. There will be one actual award statue for Maslany and up to three replicas for fans willing to shell out $500. Evans is also asking fans not directly send the actress info about the award, she’d like to surprise her with it. Check out more details and perks at the Indiegogo page.
