What Do 13 of the Strongest Women on TV Have in Common? They’re All Tatiana Maslany
A few short years ago, Tatiana Maslany was an up-and-coming actress with improv comedy chops, some TV and small movie roles under her belt and a profile little known outside her native Canada.

Those days are definitely behind her.

Now she’s regularly mobbed at fan gatherings like San Diego’s Comic-Con and revered by TV critics for her work on BBC America’s much-lauded, sci-fi-tinged thriller Orphan Black. In it, the 29-year-old juggles multiple roles—a dizzying number of sister clones, totaling 13 characters by Season 2’s end—in a twisty, edge-of-the-seat series that explores nature versus nurture, with the military, a sinister corporation and a religious cult thrown in for added intrigue.

  1. Actually if you read the piece from The New York Times recently wrote about her she seems vastly uninterested in the pettiness in parts of Hollywood and knows how to avoid it without being negatively categorized for it.

    She deserves all the praise she gets and would hope the Emmys would see it but they have a long history of bias against sci-fi & fantasy.

    Nerdy technical corrections: She so far has 11 female clones (3 dead prior to the series start) while Tony is male. The 13th clone is only 8 years old so she’s played by a child actress.
