Captivating Tatiana Maslany
the original and most comprehensive tatiana maslany fansite


Tatiana attended the GLAAD Awards yesterday. She looked so beautiful and was sporting a short new hair cut! Big thanks to my friend Carol for a bunch of these.



I’ve added some new photos to a photo session Tatiana did in 2015. I’ve also replaced the original files with larger untagged ones. Please credit if you repost. I am working on sorting through her shoots. I have over 60 outtakes (that I believe are not on any other fansite) and will be working on editing them to then add them to the site. So check back and enjoy!



Little Orphan Blacks Kristian Bruun and Tatiana Maslany return this week to give the scoop on wrapping their hit show, the state of the Canadian military, and what it takes to get banned from Comic-Con. Then they reunite with man-woman radio combo Chazmin and Sunny to hear about the pair’s summer plans and the five reasons you never give a robot a human heart. Finally, Janice Cramps stops by to run down Scott’s godfather duties and to pick a father for her babies.

Lionsgate and Roadside Attractions have set an awards-season release date of Sept. 22 for Jake Gyllenhaal’s Boston Marathon bombing movie “Stronger.”

Gyllenhaal stars as Jeff Bauman, while Tatiana Maslany plays his girlfriend Erin Hurley, in a story about love triumphing over adversity. Clancy Brown (“Hail, Caesar!”) portrays Bauman’s father and Miranda Richardson plays his mother Patty Bauman.

The film is a production of Lionsgate’s Summit Entertainment label, Mandeville Films, Bold Films, and Nine Stories. It’s Gyllenhaal’s first production under his Nine Stories banner.

Inspired by a true story and based on the New York Times bestseller by Bauman and Bret Witter, the film stars Gyllenhaal as the working-class Boston man whose iconic photo from the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing gained worldwide notice.

Bauman was waiting for his girlfriend at the finish line of the marathon when two pressure-cooker bombs exploded, killing three people and injuring more than 260 others. When Bauman awoke the next day after surgeries and realized he could not speak. He asked for a pad and paper, and wrote: “Saw the guy. Looked right at me.”

That set off a massive manhunt for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who was convicted of the murders last year. The book, published in 2014, also describes Bauman’s attempts to walk again and face his new circumstances with grace.

The movie is directed by David Gordon Green from a screenplay written by Boston local John Pollono. Producers are Todd Lieberman & David Hoberman (“The Fighter”), Gyllenhaal, Scott Silver, and Michel Litvak (“Whiplash”). Executive producers are Riva Marker, Peter McGuigan, Anthony Mattero, Gary Michael Walters, Jeffrey Stott, and Nicolas Stern.

This marks the second Lionsgate movie about the Boston Marathon bombing — “Patriots Day,” co-financed with CBS Films and starring Mark Wahlberg, was released late last year. The news about “Stronger” was first reported by Deadline Hollywood.

Sci-fi series “Orphan Black” will air its farewell season this summer. On Friday, the production company behind the show, Boat Rocker Media, is launching a mobile game to kindle excitement among Clone Club fans leading up to the series finale — and its creators believe the app will have a life that extends well beyond the TV run.

“Orphan Black: The Game” is a turn-based adventure puzzle game retelling key plots points from seasons 1-4 in the form of what Boat Rocker calls “fever-dream worlds” with a nightmarish art style. Players control the clone sestras (played in the show by Tatiana Maslany) as they fight enemies, avoid traps and solve riddles. The game launches Friday, March 24, priced at $4.99 (U.S.) in Apple’s iTunes App Store. Initially, it’s available only for iOS.

“It was important that there was a mystery, conspiracy feel to the game,” John Fawcett, who co-created “Orphan Black” with Graeme Manson, said in an interview. “That really locks into the theme of the show.”

The game features virtually all the clone sisters — Sarah, Cosima, Alison, Helena, Rachel, Beth, MK, Katja, Tony and Krystal — with more than 80 levels across 10 different worlds. Unlike the TV show, “Orphan Black: The Game” presents the storylines in a chronological fashion. Fawcett noted that in the game, the story begins with a prologue of events that happen before season 1 even starts, with “MK leading us in the forest to Beth.” (The show’s fans, we presume, will understand what he’s talking about.)

Maslany, who won the 2016 Emmy for best actress in a drama series for “Orphan Black,” provided voiceovers for the game. That includes a signature line she delivers when players reach the end of each world, said Bryce Hunter, senior VP of Boat Rocker Digital. “The grunts and death sounds are her voice as well,” he said.

The game also includes a variety of Easter eggs, including a secret world that players can uncover at the end. But the Boat Rocker guys refused to spill the beans on any of that.

Hunter said the company started assembling a team to develop the game in 2014, and began production on “Orphan Black: The Game” last year. Why hasn’t the studio produced a game for the show until now? After all, given the dystopian-tech vibe of the TV show, a game is a natural fit. Most of the clones don’t know about their sisters when the story starts, and as the show unfolds they’re forced to fight the forces behind the mysterious experiment as they race to solve the ultimate explanation for their existence.

“There were logistical hoops,” Hunter said. “We brought in a very focused, experienced team to dive into the world of ‘Orphan Black.’” Developers tested about 10 different gameplay types to make sure it would fit with the feel of the show and meet fan expectations. “Orphan Black: The Game” uses Unity Technologies’ game engine.

Fawcett, who spoke to Variety during a break in shooting this week for the series finale, said Boat Rocker is readying the launch of other projects related to the show, including a comic-book series at the end of March. “We’re hoping get fans champing at the bit to see season 5,” Fawcett said.

The fifth and final season premieres June 10, on BBC America in the U.S. and Canada’s Space network. “Orphan Black” is produced by Boat Rocker Studios’ Temple Street division in association with BBC America and Bell Media’s Space.

Fawcett said the last season spends a lot of time on Neolution Island and on the clones’ attempts to dismantle the Neolutionist patriarchy. “It’s been a crazy, crazy experience for us – every other day there’s been another main character wrapping, never to be seen again,” he said. “Our wrap party felt more like a funeral than a celebration.” For Fawcett, the most difficult character to bid goodbye to was Allison Hendrix, the suburban housewife, whom he said was probably his favorite of the clones.

On Wednesday, BBC America released a few cryptic details of what’s coming in season 5. Here’s the teaser: “This season, the walls close in on Sarah when nearly all her sestras and their allies are brought to heel by Rachel. Even more harrowing is that her daughter Kira has joined them. With the threat of Neolution having carte-blanche access to clone biology, Sarah is desperate to gain control, but realizes she must change tactics to pursue a long game. Protecting both her families, and the host of clones she’s yet to meet, Sarah and those still fighting the fight will uncover the missing pieces of the insidious conspiracy – and finally learn the story behind their origin. Despite the great risk, the fight of her life will either set her and her sestras free, or see them meet their end.”

At launch, “Orphan Black: The Game” will incorporate plot points and characters from the first four seasons, and Boat Rocker expects to introduce season 5 level packs later. As for why the company is launching it as a premium game, Hunter said that fans overwhelming preferred that model instead of it being a free-to-play game with in-app purchases.

Watch the teaser trailer for “Orphan Black: The Game”:


“Orphan Black” fans, known as the Clone Club, got a special treat at PaleyFest — a very early look at the Season 5 premiere, which won’t air until early June. The company had wrapped production on the farewell season a mere 36 hours earlier.

Tatiana Maslany remarked, “Every day was somebody’s goodbye. It was emotional. It was sad. It was awesome.” The company is tight-knit and Maslany was sincere when she talked about what she’d miss most. “The community, the Clone Club and the set — it’s unlike anything I’ve ever experienced,” she said.

One of the major storylines in the final season is longevity. Co-creator Graeme Manson noted, “John [Fawcett] and I knew that, in this feminist show, there’s a man at the top. Someone’s got to bring the man down. Think of the most evil patriarchal figure — the world’s oldest man. Westmoreland’s the top dog, like Dr. Evil.”

Clone Rachel has also realized her true villain potential, Manson revealed. “Rachel is very deep this year and very powerful.” Fawcett added, “We wanted Rachel to rise to the top through her villainy. We’ve enjoyed finding the deeper aspects and contradictions in the character.”

Another major storyline is the “Cophine” romance between Clone Cosima and scientist Delphine, portrayed by Evelyne Brochu. Manson acknowledged the effect the relationship has had on fans. “It’s a clone show that’s about diversity,” he said. “The Cosima/Delphine relationship has the same weight as any straight relationship. It’s the most important romantic love story of the show.”

Brochu added, “If our show can have even a little impact, if it inspires reality to be more of what it should be, there’s so much pride. Delphine is one of the most important characters I’ve ever played.”

When talk turned to Maslany’s acting process playing so many clones (nine clones are still alive) Maslany said, “It’s always the biggest mindf— on the planet and it’s always full of mistakes.” The star also praised her acting double, Kathryn Alexandre, for her consistently topnotch performance that’s unseen onscreen, but is essential as Maslany can’t do every scene needed for coverage.

“Orphan Black” returns to BBC America on June 10.
