Awards season sees snubs left and right for well-deserved performances and craftsmanship, but never in recent history has there been such fan backlash as there has been for Orphan Black. This little known BBC America series has managed to grow a loyal and rabid cult following in just two seasons, with the amazing talented Tatiana Maslany at the center of it.
Regularly playing four to five different clones in each episode, Maslany has truly earned her new spot as a Comic-Con superstar, and the energy was palpable when the Orphan Black panel started. While about half the time was devoted to fan questions and touching stories, the panel was able to go into how the cast and crew felt about the making of the second season and where they were looking forward to as they begin work on the third. Are there sparks flying between Paul and Mrs. S? Will we see Tony, the newest clone, again? And, really, where are Cosima’s parents? In attendance with Maslany were actors Jordan Gavaris, Dylan Bruce, Maria Doyle Kennedy, Kristian Bruun, and Ari Millen, as well as creators John Fawcett and Graeme Manson.
