It’s Scenes Like This That Make Me Forget One Woman Plays All Of These Parts

In the season finale of ORPHAN BLACK there was a veritable clone dance party that featured Tatiana Maslany, as four of the six different characters she has played this season, dancing in such distinct ways that it was really easy to accept that these were all different women played by different actresses.

That Helena is quite the enthusiastic dancer, isn’t she?
The particular ways each character moves is such a testament to Maslany’s talent. You have Cosima dancing in a very fluid yet bohemian way; Helena is just pure unfiltered spastic energy; Sarah is a cool mix of the masculine and feminine; and Alison is just totally buttoned up and stiff.
If Maslany doesn’t get an Emmy nomination this year then there is something really wrong with that whole awards process.
