The war between Sarah and Rachel will be heating up when BBC America’s Orphan Black returns with its season 2 premiere on April 19. We showed you the exclusive first look at that war a few months back, and now Entertainment Weekly’s Instagram account has an exclusive video sneak peek of the scene in question, as Sarah confronts Rachel — courtesy of a slap across the cheek and a gun pointed at the face. And judging by that logo on a monitor in the background, in looks like said confrontation is taking place at none other than the Dyad Institute itself. Clone-on-clone action, people! READ FULL STORY
Tag: Tatiana Maslany (1-7 of 7)
Seven was a lucky number for Tatiana Maslany this year: She broke out with her mesmerizing performance — well, seven of them, if you count all the clones she has played to date — in BBC America’s conspiracy drama Orphan Black. As a result, EW has named her one of our Entertainers of the Year. We asked the 28-year-old Canadian actress to select her most memorable day from her banner year, and she chose her journey this summer to San Diego for Comic-Con. Maslany being Maslany, she couldn’t just play one role that day, so she took on two: celebrity and fan. Read on:

When we were putting together our New Hollywood issue, one of the big questions we faced was: How many times do we include Tatiana Maslany? The 27-year-old Canadian actress dazzles on the BBC America drama Orphan Black, playing seven clones and counting (including distressed single mom Sarah, type-A suburban mom Alison, misguided self-mutilator Helena, quirky Ph.D. student Cosima) who are entangled in a murky, dangerous conspiracy.
How does Maslany slip so easily into all of these different characters? Does she have a creative crutch? Turns out, she gets in tune with each role by, well, playing specific tunes.

If you’ve been buzzing about Tatiana Maslany’s breakout role(s) on BBC America’s clone conspiracy drama Orphan Black, then you’ve probably also been wondering exactly how she manages to play multiple characters at the same time. Is it Hollywood witchcraft? Computer trickery? Is she just that good? Maybe a little bit of all three.
Check out this helpful behind-the-scenes video, which was screened this evening during the Orphan Black panel at Comic-Con. In it, the show’s star — and co-creators Graeme Manson and John Fawcett — walk you through the intriguing and somewhat complicated process of making multiple Maslanys.

Leading up to today’s deadline for Emmy voters to submit nomination ballots, EW.com is featuring interviews with some of the actors and actresses whose names we hope to hear when nominations are announced on July 18.
Could BBC America’s addictive new drama Orphan Black hold the flag for classic sci-fi when Emmy nominations roll around? Tatiana Maslany, the show’s captivating and chameleon-like star, sure hopes they can.
“It would be so amazing if the show got nominated or we got out there; I think people would be really excited about that because so many incredible sci-fi-shows go under the radar and don’t get taken seriously in award season,” she says. “But I think sci-fi definitely belongs there because it tells sort of subversive stories about society without hitting you over the head. It puts very real stories into the context of a fantastical world, so there’s a sense of escapism but there’s also a sense of, ‘This isn’t far from our reality.’”
Reality has just started to set in for the newcomer, who has burst onto the scene to become a dark horse contender for a nomination this Emmy season. In a Q&A with EW, she talks about the show’s success and some of her most challenging scenes. And with seven different roles, she had plenty to choose from!
