Part of BBC America’s Supernatural Saturday line-up, this Canadian production has made a star out of its leading woman, Tatiana Maslany. For her work in Orphan Black, in which she plays multiple characters, she has recently received Golden Globe and People’s Choice Nominations, Canadian Screen Actor Award, Critic’s Choice Best Dramatic Actress Award and a Young Hollywood Award for Breakthrough Performance.
Sarah (played by Tatiana Maslany) is homeless and one day sees a woman who looks just like her commit suicide. In a panicked state she just picks up the woman’s purse and runs. She assumes the identity of the woman and discovers they are clones. More mind blowing is the fact that there are more clones out there. Once she thinks she has the answer to things another mystery pops up.
