Tatiana Maslany

Who’s that lady? Or rather, ladies? And why do they look so much alike? Mischievously twisting and turning like a real-life M.C. Escher print, Orphan Black and star Tatiana Maslany lead you up a staircase, down a hallway, along a highway, heading…where? Is it a dream, a nightmare, a conspiracy, a secret government project gone horribly wrong? This whip-smart series and mega-talented star from Canada invite you in and grab you firmly, refusing to let go, quietly, sardonically laughing all the while. As the young woman in huge trouble, desperately seeking escape from her self-created snare, Maslany, (Sarah Manning), pulls audiences into a strange, hypnotic world that is as believable as it is bizarre. Assuming the identity of look-alike suicide victim Beth, Sarah thinks her woes could well be over. But in an extreme case of “be careful what you wish for,” Sarah/Beth finds herself tumbling down a hellish rabbit hole, with no apparent way out. Portraying Sarah/Beth (and a host of other clones), Maslany effortlessly shifts gears with each new version of herself she encounters. Pardon the pun, but talk about the ultimate in role-playing!

Tom Cullen

The penetrating brown eyes, pitch-black hair, and rugged good looks belie the depth of actor Tom Cullen’s talent and versatility. Be it the conflicted, gay lover Russell in Weekend, the suave Anthony Foyle (aka Viscount Gillingham), desperately pursuing Lady Mary Crawley in Downton Abbey, or the courageous Holy Grail-chasing Landry du Lauzon in his current series Knightfall, Cullen always seems to find the truth in each of his characters and imbues them with a riveting, vibrant honesty. He slips so completely into roles that one can’t be sure if it’s the same actor. Nevertheless, there is little doubt about Cullen’s ability to draw audiences into whatever worlds his characters inhabit. LEARN MORE
