"It’s easy to forget that Alison and Sarah, who have many scenes together, are played by the same actress. I’ve often found myself grasping for the name of the actress who plays Cosima, only to hit myself on the head and remember that Maslany plays her as well."

"Take away the physical distinctions of each of the clones — Cosima’s dredlocks, Alison’s bangs, Helena’s blond mane. Hell, even take away their accents. Even without the obvious markers, the characters are still remarkably different from each other, because Maslany brings physical nuances to every performance. Watch her hands. For Alison, they’re kept close to her face and chin. For Sarah, they’re fiddling with something. For Cosima, they’re all over the place."

"And to say Maslany leads the series is an understatement. She’s its cornerstone. She’s Sarah. She’s spiraling soccer mom Alison. She’s blood-thirsty maniac Helena. She’s science wiz Cosima. She’s Sarah-as-Beth, Alison-as-Sarah, Sarah-as-Alison, Helena-as-Sarah-as-Beth … OK, you get it. She plays a whole lot of characters and has a shooting schedule unrivaled by anyone else on television. But watch “Orphan Black,” and you might just need to remind yourself just one woman is behind so many characters: That’s how convincing she is. You’ll forget they’re all Maslany."
