ICYMI: FRIDAY BBC AMERICA COMIC CON ROUNDUP

  • Tatiana Maslany received a standing ovation at the beginning of the Orphan Black panel! Regarding the Emmy incident, Tatiana simply said, “I feel lucky to be at this point in TV history. For me, it’s more hearing fan response.” She’s in the right place! Facebook presented her with a “Best Actress in the World” award and a fan gave her a homemade Russian doll of all the clones. Tatiana was even moved to tears when another viewer thanked her for her LGBT-empowering portrayal of Cosima.
  • Showrunner Graeme Manson dished that there will be a twist on Beth in episodes to come, and also that the second season DVD will include a deleted Alison/Donnie scene. (Maybe the pilot for their Dexter tribute.)
  • Jordan Gavaris says Felix’s guilty pleasure is Ru Paul’s Drag RaceDylan Bruce reveals that Jordan is his man crush, and Maria Doyle Kennedy admits she no longer receives dinner invites because of…well, you know, that scene. (And Patti Smith was the inspiration for Mrs. S’s character, for those of you who spotted the braids.)
  • The Intruders panel kicked off later that evening with the world premiere screening of the first episode. (Still got another month to wait to see it on TV…it premieres on August 23.)
  • John Simm notes that this is the first time he’s ever played an American, and word is that his accent is flawless. Meanwhile, Mira Sorvino says that her character offered her a psychologically challenging role. With the eerie Twin Peaks-y Pacific Northwest looming large in the background, this feels appropriate.
