Orphan Black isn’t afraid to throw new hurdles at its clone club at every turn.
It’s not easy to steal scenes when you are appearing opposite the Greatest Actress in the World (a.k.a. Tatiana Maslany), but somehow Jordan Gavaris manages to do it as Sarah’s flamboyant brother Felix. He has become a fan favorite as the often-pantless painter with the coolest loft on TV. We sat down with Gavaris recently on set of Orphan Black while filming the final episode of season 3 (which will kick off on BBC America on April 18). Here’s what he had to say about Felix in season 3, including a new connection with…Cosima?
BBC America just released its latest trailer for season 3 of Orphan Black and this one focuses on the male clones of Project Castor, all played by Ari Millen. In the sneak peek we get looks at four different male clones:
Mark: Described as a “Spy”, Mark now seems to indeed have been undercover with the Proletheans last season before taking off and marrying Gracie.
Mall mainstay Hot Topic has just announced an Orphan Black clothing line.
Orphan Black won’t begin until April 18, but you can get your first taste of season 3 right now. BBC America just released a scene from the premiere that shows an interaction between Sarah (Tatiana Maslany) and that creepy male clone we met in the previous finale and played by Ari Millen. “You’re a legend, Sarah Manning,” he says, but after that compliment it pretty much goes downhill from there.
Just as we were starting to learn more about Sarah Manning and the female clones of Project Leda, BBC America’s Orphan Black threw another twist at us in the season 2 finale: male clones! Indeed, Sarah came face-to-face with psychotic-looking dude now revealed to be named Rudy. And Rudy was played by actor Ari Millen, who had already been introduced as creepy Prolethean Mark—a character the show creators had originally intended to kill off.
The hardest-working woman in show business hardly ever gets a break. That’s what happens when you’re playing five-plus characters on the same TV show. But for Tatiana Maslany, that’s been her normal for a while now.
Orphan Black has left us with plenty of question marks heading into season 3. And those question marks are often wrapped in mysteries. And those mysteries are often wrapped inside another layer of enigmas. So the point is, there is a lot we still don’t know. But Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) sat down with Orphan Black co-creator John Fawcett on set this week where he is directing the season finale, and he promises that when the show returns April 18 on BBC America, we can start to expect to get some answers.
There are male clones and threats galore in the new trailer for the third season of Orphan Black. For one, it seems Rachel Duncan is still around, despite that pencil in the eye. Meanwhile, Sarah is lashing out at Mrs. S., Helena has been imprisoned in a box, and Cosima is explaining, “We can’t rely on anybody but ourselves.”
And then we see a lot from the male clones. “These guys are not my problem,” Sarah says.
Orphan Black returns in April, but fans will get glimpses at the upcoming travails of their favorite clones this week with a series of teasers.
