Orphan Black’s Tatiana Maslany, PLL and Game of Thrones Stars Land Young Hollywood Awards

At least one awards-giving body is doing right by Tatiana Maslany this week.
Indeed, while the Orphan Black star’s jaw-dropping performance got snubbed when the 2013 Emmy Award nominations were announced Thursday morning, she’s among the first group of honorees for the 2013 Young Hollywood Awards, which celebrate the best emerging young talent in film, music and television.
The first wave of winners includes:
Crossover of the Year: Lucy Hale, Pretty Little Liars
Actor of the Year: Kit Harington, Game of Thrones
Breakthrough Performance – Male: Liam James, The Way, Way Back
Breakthrough Performance – Female: Tatiana Maslany, Orphan Black
Style Icon: Kelly Osbourne
Superstar of Tomorrow – Female: AnnaSophia Robb, The Carrie Diaries

The show will be broadcast for the first time on August 1 (8/7c on The CW).
Additional honorees and presenters will be announced in the coming weeks.

‘Orphan Black’ creators tease season 2: ‘Expect to hit the ground running’

First, the bad news: You will have to wait until next spring to see new episodes of Orphan Black. (Hey, told you it was bad.) But now, the good news: The creators of BBC America’s clone-conspiracy drama, Graeme Manson and John Fawcett, are willing to offer a few glimpses into season 2. Before they appear at Comic-Con on Friday with at least one version of star Tatiana Maslany (who plays single mom Sarah Manning, not to mention several other clones) to answer your burning questions and screen some never-before-seen season 1 footage, read what the pair had to say about the new episodes.

On the themes of season 2
MANSON: We definitely will be continuing looking at bonds and themes of motherhood in all its guises that we show — Mrs. S. (Maria Doyle Kennedy) and the foster motherhood, Sarah and Kira (Sklyer Wexler) — as well as testing and stretching the bond between our three main women (played by Maslany), Cosima, Sarah and Allison… Sarah’s going to be on the run in season 2.
FAWCETT: She’s really freaked out because she’s got bad guys after her.
On where the action picks up in the season 2 premiere
MANSON: You can pretty much expect to hit the ground running.
FAWCETT: There’s not a lot of time wasted in terms of where the season begins. Kira is gone and Sarah is panicking, and the season begins maybe two hours after the end of season 1, and launches like a rocket right from there.
On when fans will get answers to questions from the end of season 1, such as Kira’s special healing ability and Cosima’s sickness
FAWCETT: These are obviously questions that everybody is going to want answers to. We’re going to get answers — I’m not sure how quickly we’re going to get answers. Part of the joy of the show is letting things mysteriously unfold. The fact that people don’t really know where the show is headed? We like that.
MANSON: It’s safe to say we are interested in unwrapping the mystery of Kira and Sarah’s motherhood.
On the likelihood of meeting more clones this season
MANSON: We’re really interested in that. We’re also very respectful of the idea of it. We want to introduce characters — not a lot of red-shirt clones. It’s safe to say we want to.
FAWCETT: We’re a clone show. That’s what we are and that’s what got Graeme and I so excited about this concept in the first place. I think it’s safe to say that through the course of this series we’re going to meet more clones.

Photos: Trapped! & Dawn Anna

I just finished adding posters, promotional images, screencaps, and stills from Tatiana’s films Trapped! (2006) & Dawn Anna (2005) to the gallery. In Trapped! (also known as Dangerous Isolation) she played Gwen a young girl who was abducted in order to force her mother into hacking into government files. Dawn Anna was based on a true story and Tatiana played the role of Lauren Townsend who died in the Columbine shooting shortly after her mother recovered from brain cancer.

Tatiana Maslany

Notable TV roles: Several clones, Orphan Black (BBC America)

The buzziest new show of the TV season has a premise that calls for an actress capable of intense heavy lifting. Orphan Black went with a relative unknown, and the result is one of the most surprising performances of the year. Plenty of actors have pulled double duty playing twins, doppelgangers, or in this case, clones—but Maslany played seven on the first season of this upstart. That she’s able to give each and every one a distinct personality is remarkable, and as the show gains more popularity, so will she. This is the show your geeky friend (read: us) has been telling you to check out for the past few months. Hop on the bandwagon.
