A possible Clone Club video game, Delphine's fate, and more intel from the Orphan Black PaleyFest panel
Three seasons in, Orphan Black has cemented itself as one of television’s most imaginative, multi-faceted shows. This isn’t just because of its premise, which calls for star Tatiana Maslany to portray roughly five clones every episode, but also because of the series’ thematic beats. The BBC America hit is about identity, but it’s also about evolution, big business, family, sisterhood, and sacrifice.
The 2015 Primetime Emmys are fast approaching, broadcast live on Sunday at 8 p.m. ET on Fox. In honor of the big night, EW picked out the best quotes from the Outstanding Lead Actor and Actress nominees in drama and comedy. Can you name the stars who dropped these 12 lines?
Tatiana Maslany is one of the most versatile actresses currently working on television, and the Orphan Black star recently garnered an overdue Emmy nomination for her role(s) on the show. But Maslany appeared on Friday night’s episode of the The Tonight Show and told host Jimmy Fallon how her prior snubs helped in the show’s popularity.
“People on Twitter freaked out [when you weren’t nominated] … you were trending,” Fallon told Maslany.
Entertainment Weekly’s Comic-Con party red carpet was filled with stars ready to dish on their favorite shows of the moment, from Netflix’s Orange is the New Black to newly Emmy-nominated Orphan Black – which Once Upon a Time’s Jennifer Morrison wasn’t afraid to gush over.
“I just caught up on Orphan Black,” Morrison said. “I was just totally geeking out on them!”
It’s an Emmy nomination that fans have long wanted to see: Tatiana Maslany received a nod in the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama series category for her work as multiple characters on Orphan Black. The nomination is Maslany’s first.
Following the nominations announcement, Maslany thanked fans on Twitter for their support.
Orphan Black’s suburban couple Alison and Donnie get three different makeovers in a series of fake trailers released Friday.
The Clone Club may be going through some dark times, but that doesn’t mean the cast of Orphan Black can’t have some fun behind the scenes. Levity abounds in a new blooper reel video, unveiled during the cult darling’s panel presentation at San Diego’s Comic-Con International on Friday evening.
