Orphan Black's Tatiana Maslany Reacts to First Emmy Nom!
The 29-year-old actress, who was snubbed for the last two years for her critically-acclaimed performance on Orphan Black, finally received a nod in the Lead Actress in a Drama category.
“I didn’t even expect it at all,” Tatiana told Variety. “It’s super nice, and it feels like a nice thing for the show to get that kind of recognition, and for the fans — they’ve been so supportive and protective of us; it feels like a communal thing.”
“It’s crazy,” Tatiana added of the online support. “That’s why I feel it’s not for me this nomination happened; it’s for our fans, because they’re the ones who are fighting for people to watch the show and have championed it in such a huge way. I feel so supported and so loved. It’s totally crazy to me that anyone cares if I get a nomination — it’s pretty wild.”
