Orphan Black’s Tatiana Maslany May Co-Star with Helen Mirren in BBC Film
If we’ve learned anything from watching Tatiana Maslany play nearly a dozen different characters on BBC America’s Orphan Black, it’s that she’s an exceptional actress. Well, it seems she may soon be joining forces with one of the most celebrated British actresses alive: Dame Helen Mirren.
The film also will star fellow Canadian actor Ryan Reynolds, who has been cast as the attorney leading the case to regain ownership of the stolen portrait from the Austrian government. With a top-notch cast like this, we expect this movie to be the darling of awards season. BBC Films has produced several Oscar-nominated films in recent years including Notes on a Scandal, Iris, and Philomena.
What do you think of Tatiana playing a younger Helen Mirren — inspired or totally off?
