TATIANA MASLANY (Claire), a Toronto based actress, has earned a reputation for playing incredibly complex characters. The Globe and Mail called her “a chameleon” whose range spans everything from the Virgin Mary to leather-wearing tough girls. Chosen as one of its “Rising Stars” at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival, Maslany also earned Best Performance awards from the Whistler International Film Festival and ACTRA for her role as Claire in PICTURE DAY. She plays multiple characters in the new BBC America/Space television series ORPHAN BLACK, the New York Times praising Maslany as “an appealing anchor for the series.” Her starring role in GROWN UP MOVIE STAR opposite Shawn Doyle competed at Sundance in 2010 and she garnered the Special Jury Prize for Breakout Star at the festival as well as a Genie nomination. Recent feature credits include CAS AND DYLAN opposite Richard Dreyfuss, THE VOW opposite Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum, Geoffrey Fletcher’s directorial debut VIOLET AND DAISY opposite Saoirse Ronan and Alexis Bledel, a lead in Sean Garrity’s improvisational feature BLOOD PRESSURE opposite
