Tatiana Maslany is back with her dozens of alter-egos on “Orphan Black” airing on BBC America. Before she became the trophy of the week, Maslany was an unknown Canadian actress just trying to hook a part. “Now I’ve experienced incredible things in acting classes where I feel like I transcended what acting can be,” she says.
“And the way that acting reveals who we are as humans — as stupid as it sounds — I think it’s a necessary profession as far as (helping) people. . . to experience people, relationships, to fall in love. We watch movies to escape. We watch movies to learn more about ourselves, to be challenged. The films that I love are the ones where you go, ‘I don’t know what I just saw. I don’t know how I feel about it. But all I want to do is talk about it now because it stirs something up in me.’”
