Tatiana Maslany Orphan Black Interview

While all the major networks seem incapable of launching slow burn serialized sci-fi dramas, BBC America is taking them to school with the exhilarating, inventive and hypnotic Orphan Black.

But the show's expertly plotted twists and hair-raising turns would be nothing without star Tatiana Maslany. The perfect conduit for the myriad of cloned characters the 27-year-old is tasked with bringing to life, it's as if she too were created in a lab explicitly for this performance.

ETonline caught up with 2013's brightest new star to talk about this massive undertaking, how she keeps all her characters (five and counting) straight and what fans can expect from Saturday's all-new episode of Orphan Black!

ETonline: I would imagine wrapping your head around this role was simultaneously thrilling and terrifying. True?
Tatiana Maslany: Totally. That's exactly it. When I read the script, all I did was want it. I just wanted it. I was completely obsessed. I was so hungry to play this part. And then when I got it, the terror set in [laughs]. It's such a huge responsibility to carry a show, let alone be able to be very specific and committed to each one of these separate women. I couldn't make any of them a stereotype, or a one-off character. It was super daunting, but at the same time, I've never loved hard work this much. The writing is so incredible, the cast is unbelievable and so there for me. It's a huge commitment, but I've never felt better about a choice I've made in my life.

ETonline: So far, you've played five different characters on the show -- often times in the same scene. How do you keep their individual characteristics and their individual storylines straight in your mind?
Maslany: I try not to have too much of a stranglehold on the overall story because I would absolutely lose my mind if I tried to anticipate anything. For me, it's about cluing into each woman and finding her walk and her rhythm and her world view. I use a lot of music; I have different playlists for every character and different dances for every character that settle me into my body. I have a Cosima rave dance and Alison is ballet. I have a huge dance background, so that was how I tapped into it.

ETonline: I'm almost scared to ask, but what kind of dance do you perform to play Helena?
Maslany: [laughs] Weirdly she's very sexual because I think she's repressing a great deal of animal sexuality. She has this contrast in her, which is, "I am light, I am from God." But I think it's masking this demon inside of her. It's very frenetic, very animalistic, but also very masculine and sexual.

ETonline: The last episode ended with a stand-off between Sarah and Helena. Where does Saturday's episode pick up?
Maslany: What you'll really start to see in the next couple episodes is all the relationships being tested and doubted. People's alliance will be revealed or questioned or theorized about. The tension really is in these relationships being under scrutiny. We're starting to see the clones as potentially part of a greater experiment, or something -- and this is what the women are dealing with in their personal lives with the people they love.

RELATED - Stars on Set

ETonline: Sarah had a line in last week's episode where she referred to the proverbial "they" in terms of the clone creators. Is this the start of a more conspiracy-driven storyline?
Maslany: Absolutely. But as much as it happens on a broad-scale, it's more reflected in the relationship between the women and with the people in their lives. As much as it becomes a big time conspiracy, it's always grounded in the relationships, which is what makes the show deeply personal. There's not a lot of looking up at a big face of God, they're looking at the people in their lives to see who they can trust.

ETonline: I have to say, I really appreciate that your show caters to an intelligent viewer and doesn't feel the need to spoonfeed answers.
Maslany: Totally, and that's what I love about the writing. It's not dumbed down, it understands that our audience is willing to put in the time to get to know characters and we don't have to be immediately likable to be compelling. Orphan Black allows for people to have debates and theories and allegiances to different characters; to trust characters and hate other characters, but it doesn't tell you who is good or bad or right or wrong. That's the most exciting storytelling in my book. Some of my favorite shows are ones where the characters are vile and human and flawed. That's what makes me want to keep watching a show, not writers telling me how to feel about characters.

ETonline: And I think you really see in that in the show's choice to make Sarah the protagonist.
Maslany: Totally. She's a hustler and manipulative but at the same time, she's got this very loyal heart, is extremely vulnerable and utterly lost. It's a fascinating story to tell because it's not: "She's good and that's why you should root for her." I think we can recognize ourselves more in Sarah than a character who is cookie cutter perfect. I don't recognize myself in people like that and don't want to watch people like that. I would much rather watch someone who challenges my ideas of humanity and that's why I love Helena. As much as she could be deemed "evil," I feel a great compassion for her struggle. What is her past and what made her the way she is? That question is interesting to me.

ETonline: Well, how much will we learn about their past and what made them the way they are this season?
Maslany: I can't go into lots of detail, but we do peel back the layers. Every episode reveals something new, and answers a lot of questions -- but those answers open up new doors and pose new questions. All their worlds become very intertwined in the coming episodes and we get to know a lot more about Alison and Cosima, and they start to become lead characters as well. Not just support for Sarah.

ETonline: Will we meet more clones this season?
Maslany: I can't answer that! You have to tune in and see, but I won't say no [laughs].

ETonline: As the show continues on, there's a very good chance you could, eventually, have to play 20 different clones in a single scene. Have you thought about that?
Maslany: Honestly, I've tried to forget about that idea as much as I can because I've already got so much going on with these four characters. There is a fear in me that I could tap out on the number of people I can play, but then I get a new script and can just hear the voice, which is why our writers are so awesome. Plus, as a person, you keep experiencing new things, which make new facets of yourself available to pull from. I think that's the journey of an actor as well. I can't play a 40-year-old woman yet because I haven't lived that yet, but once I do, I'll have that power to pull from and all those experiences to draw from to make my characters richer. Hopefully I'll have lived enough this year so if we do come back, I can pull out a New York gangster clone for season two.

Orphan Black airs Saturdays at 9 p.m. on BBC America.

Kathie Lee Gifford Talks Open Letter to Matt Lauer

Kathie Lee Gifford is speaking out to ET about a full-page USA Today ad she wrote in support of the recently embattled Matt Lauer, which she gathered hundreds of signatures from Today's cast and crew for. Though Gifford didn't end up publishing the open letter on Lauer's request, she makes it clear that she stands by him 100 percent -- even if that means walking away from Today.

"We are tired of the truth not coming forward and we have watched this man we respect and admire be vilified," she told ET at the American Mothers National Convention in New York City where she was presented with the Mother of Achievement award. "He is a good guy and if he goes, I'm going too."

According to Gifford, Lauer has plenty of support from his co-workers.

"People didn't even finish reading it and people were ripping the pen out of my hand to sign it… NBC didn't ask me to do this. They know better. This was a proclamation in support of Matt," she said about the open letter.

But did ousted former Today co-host Ann Curry sign the petition?

"It's not that she didn't sign it. It's just that we couldn't find Ann," she clarified.

The drama comes on the heels of New York Times reporter Brian Stelter's new book Top of the Morning which hones in on the recent activity surrounding Today, specifically the dismissal of Ann Curry, which the reporter alleges was planned well in advance.

Amy Schumer Interview Inside Amy Schumer

If you, like me, are most familiar with Amy Schumer from her ego-assassinating appearances at Comedy Central's various Roasts, then her new series, Inside Amy Schumer, will have you in stitches. But with the half-hour hybrid (part stand-up, part sketch comedy, part improv), Schumer does more than titillate, she also engages the audiences in deeply fascinating dialogues about sex, gender and our collective attitudes towards both.

ETonline recently caught up with Schumer to talk about headlining her own series, her approach to the material and what she learned about TV from working with Lena Dunham and Louis C.K.

ETonline: I heard Inside Amy Schumer was originally was set to be a talk show. True?
Amy Schumer: True. I knew I was going to have a pilot with Comedy Central and thought about what they'd want right now. I knew they wanted a talk show, so I was going to do that, but if it didn't go anywhere, I just wanted to make the show of my dreams. I mean, they're paying for it, so I might as well have fun for a few weeks and make my dream show. So we made this instead.

RELATED - TV's Coolest Reunions!

ETonline: So did you just cherrypick the best formats to include?
Schumer: I think so. We always knew there would be stand-up, and scenes that were played in a very realistic way but with a bizarre twist. Then, I love talking to people on the street -- I loved HBO's Real Sex -- so I wanted to do that. And I wanted to do interviews, but not with celebrities. I am more interested in talking to people from different walks of life. A dominatrix, or a guy with a huge penis. I just wanted to have candid interviews with real people.

ETonline: In researching the show for this interview, I realized your writer's room is filled with some of my favorite comedians (Jessi Klein, Tig Notaro, Gabe Liedman).
Schumer: It's a powerhouse group. I just asked my favorite comedians to make the show with me and I can't believe they said yes.

ETonline: Stand-up is very much an individual sport. What was it like going from being a one-man-band to a team leader?
Schumer: It was a big adjustment to make. It was a little overwhelming at first, but now I miss being in the writer's room and being with so many people who, in essence, spoke the same vocabulary. But you're right, stand-up comedy is a very isolating experience. So to be surrounded by hundreds of people from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. was overwhelming, and now that I'm getting back into stand-up, I am kind of withdrawing more from the world [laughs]. I just wound up loving the whole experience so much.

ETonline: You've worked with Lena Dunham and Louis C.K. who both perform multiple functions on their shows. Did you apply anything you learned from those experiences to this show?
Schumer: One thing I really enjoy about them, and like and respect and have stolen from them [laughs], is that there's no desire to get it right. It's just about committing to your own sensibility and what you're doing. Bulldozing forward without apologies. I can see that with Louis, I can see that with Lena and I felt super inspired by that. I've tried to emulate that choice. And like with Louie and Girls, there are some episodes that you may not love and may not be your favorite, but you'll always have an opinion on them, and I'd like to hope we can have the same kind of reaction.

Inside Amy Schumer premieres April 30 at 10:30 p.m. on Comedy Central.
