Tatiana Maslany: The Dynamic Is Difficult To Navigate

Tatiana Maslany: The Dynamic Is Difficult To Navigate

Posted: Updated:

We all have our favorite clone on "Orphan Black."

For many, it is funky bisexual scientist Cosima. For others, it's stressed out soccer mom Alison gets top billing. And still others gravitate toward punk protagonist Sarah. But if you ask the woman who plays them all, Tatiana Maslany, who her favorite clone is lately, you'll get a surprising answer: Rachel.

That's right, the corporate pro-clone will play a major role in season 2, and when Entertainment Weekly caught up with Maslany on set during filming, she named Ms. Duncan as the one she is most amped about playing.

"I love Rachel right now," says Maslany. "I'm really excited about Rachel. She's quite fun to play. The last episode we did with a director called Helen Shaver. It was her first time directing Orphan, and she's an actor and an amazing woman. The episode was quite Rachel heavy and it was really great to do it with her because she just understood things on a level that just enlightened me as to who Rachel is and what's underneath and where she could be coming from. She's kind of a fascinating mystery to me."

Tatiana Maslany joins Steve Edwards and Lisa Breckenridge on Good Day L.A.
