Video: Tatiana Maslany Overjoyed to Play Only One Character in ‘The Other Half’
SXSW 2016: Actress, who plays 10 personalities on the hit “Orphan Black,” discusses new drama with TheWrap
The phrase “working actress” takes on a new dimension when discussing Tatiana Maslany.
As the star of USA’s “Orphan Black,” Maslany plays her not only her character, but up to nine clones of her at a time. So imagine her relief to shoot the indie drama “The Other Half,” which premiered in SXSW’s 2016 film block.
Maslany and her real-life partner, Tom Cullen, star as a bi-polar woman and a long-grieving, self-destructive man who attempt a normal life.
The actors and their director Joey Klein visited TheWrap’s Austin, Texas, studio to discuss the heavy film and the collaborative spirit of the project.
Photos to follow tomorrow.

Video: This New Orphan Black Trailer Is Surprisingly Catchy
The last time we brought you a trailer for Orphan Black Season 4, the many clones played by Tatiana Maslany were going down a rabbit hole of C-4 and suspense. This time around things are a little more fun. (OK, there’s still a lot of screaming and near-death moments.) Set to a crazy beat and intercut with scenes of nightclubs, snaps, and dancing. There are also body bags, mysterious files from the Dyad Institute, and what appears to be Alison and Donnie’s attempts to have a child, possibly with the help of Helena. Anyway, it’s a doozy. Check it out above. Orphan Black is back on BBC America on April 14.
Pause at: 0:03 for bomb stuff. 0:19 for the best moment of this trailer. 0:28 for clubbin’. 0:43 for that creepy rabbit mask’s return. 0:37—Felix (Jordan Gavaris) what did you do?!
Essential Quote: “I’m late for my own pregnancy.”—Sarah (Maslany) pretending to he Alison? Alison pretending to be Helena? Another clone entirely? We don’t know, but it’s a LoL.
Press: Canadian Screen Awards 2016 – Schitt’s Creek, Orphan Black and Room win big
Schitt’s Creek, Orphan Black and Room were the big winners at Sunday night’s Canadian Screen Awards — or should we say “The Candy’s”?
Host Norm Macdonald introduced the idea of renaming the awards in honour of late Canadian comedian John Candy at the beginning of the show, and both presenters and recipients happily embraced the idea.
Nine-year-old Jacob Tremblay, who later won Best Actor in a Leading Role for the movie Room, was the first to adopt Macdonald’s proposal as he presented the “Candy” for Best Actor in a Continuing Leading Dramatic Role to Ari Millen of the television series Orphan Black.
Room won nine awards in total Sunday night, including best actress for Brie Larson, who also won the Oscar in the same category last month. Emma Donoghue took home the Canadian Screen Award for best adapted screenplay and Joan Allen won for best supporting actress. The film also won best motion picture and achievement in directing, editing and makeup.
CBC’s Schitt’s Creek dominated the television comedy category, winning best comedy series, best actor in a continuing leading comedic role (Eugene Levy), best actress in a continuing leading comedic role (Catherine O’Hara). The series won six more Canadian Screen Awards earlier in the week, including best writing, best supporting actor and best supporting actress.
Bell Media’s Orphan Black won seven awards in the drama category throughout the week, including Tatiana Maslany‘s best actress trophy on Sunday.
Sunday’s star-studded gala finished off a week of celebrating the past year’s achievements in Canadian film, television and digital media. It was broadcast from the Sony Centre for the Performing Arts in Toronto.

Video/News: ‘The Other Half’ to Premiere at SXSW
Nickie is a self-destructive loner ever mourning the disappearance of his younger brother. Having abandoned a life of promise in his native UK, he has subsisted by drowning grief in alcohol and violence. On the fifth anniversary of his brother’s disappearance – and on the verge of reaching his nadir – he meets Emily. The two form an immediate, inseparable bond: it is a love at first sight deepened by a shared sense of sorrow.
The Other Half will make its worldwide premiere at SXSW on March 11th, 12th, and 16th. Check out the official event page here.
