Tatiana Maslany Overjoyed to Play Only One Character in ‘The Other Half’ (Video)

SXSW 2016: Actress, who plays 10 personalities on the hit “Orphan Black,” discusses new drama with TheWrap

The phrase “working actress” takes on a new dimension when discussing Tatiana Maslany.

As the star of USA’s “Orphan Black,” Maslany plays her not only her character, but up to nine clones of her at a time. So imagine her relief to shoot the indie drama “The Other Half,” which premiered in SXSW’s 2016 film block.

Maslany and her real-life partner, Tom Cullen, star as a bi-polar woman and a long-grieving, self-destructive man who attempt a normal life.

The actors and their director Joey Klein visited TheWrap’s Austin, Texas, studio to discuss the heavy film and the collaborative spirit of the project.
