We can think of a lot of adjectives to describe Orphan Black’s leading lady, Tatiana Maslany: amazing, talented, stupendous, beautiful, witty, perfect.
And if we go on much longer, Tatiana’s hunky actor boyfriend, Tom Cullen of Downton Abbey fame, might have a word or two for us (not that we’d mind hearing from that British babe). But of all the words we think of when Tatiana comes to mind — add “lucky in love” to the list — “diva” isn’t one of them.
Yet that’s exactly how the 28-year-old Canadian described herself during a recent stop by People. Playing the magazine’s go-to guest game, Tatiana picked questions out of a basket and tried to answer them all in under 60 seconds.
“The hardest thing about playing opposite myself?” she says, reading off a provided question. Hemming and hawing, the clock ticking all the while, Tatiana finally answers: “Because I’m a diva!”
Say what?! Girl, you might be many things — see list above — but diva doesn’t seem like one.
Watch the video above to hear what surprising job Tatiana would have if she wasn’t an actress as well as how she keeps her clones straight! And do you think she’s a diva on the set? Tell us in the comments!
