Jen Ernst: Orphan Black at WonderCon Interview Pt.1
Orphan Black, BBC America’s addictive science and morals showdown series is back on April 18 at 9:00 ET. Season Three throws Tatiana Maslany, in her gazillion (give or take) clone roles, into unexpected territory as they deal with the revelation of a new line of militaristic male clones played by Ari Millen. It also hopefully brings more sass and wit from more sassy Felix (the British-accented artist/rent boy foster brother we all wish we had.) And fingers crossed it will answer the questions plaguing me since last season ended. Now that Project Leda know they are not alone, what’s next?
There are a bunch of questions that need to be answered! Who survived? Where did they take Helena? Is she preggers? Will Rachel will be rocking an eye patch? I can’t wait to see those play out. But, what’s been plaguing me in the hiatus has been Mrs. S. What’s her deal? Who’s side is she on? How pissed is Sarah going to be? There’s something about Maria Doyle Kennedy’s portrayal of Mrs. S with her brand of harsh compassion that is so compelling. Maybe I just have huge girl crush on MDK ever since The Commitments, IDK.
So, of course I was totally beside myself at Wondercon last Saturday when members of Orphan Black’s cast were on hand before their panel to give some insight on what’s to come. And yes…Maria Kennedy Doyle was there. And no, I didn’t fangirl out.
In this first video, Jordan Gavaris (Felix) and the lovely Maria Kennedy Doyle talk about their characters’ relationship, if we should trust them, and skillfully answer questions without getting spoiler-y. Oh and yes, there is a Mr. S!
