Tatiana Maslany and the ‘joy and nightmare’ of ‘Orphan Black’

“Orphan Black” star Tatiana Maslany, a freshly minted best actress prize winner, joined us for a live chat to talk about her role as Sarah Manning and half a dozen other clones on the acclaimed new BBC America sci-fi series.

The buzzed-about show has a loyal fan base from around the world, and Maslany was kind enough to say hello (or “hola,” depending on the nationality) to many who had joined the conversation, while also discussing the joy and nightmare of playing so many parts on the series. Wigs, wardrobe and singing were also popular topics as well as the music playlists Maslany makes for each of her characters. She was a delight, which you’ll realize soon enough if you listen in.
