Trivia: Orphan Black
  • Acting for Two: Or, at current count, eight.
    • Cynthia Galant plays the young Rachel seen in home movies, meaning she will play every younger version of the clones. She also plays Charlotte Bowles, an 8 year old clone.
    • Ari Millen plays the set of male clones, including a soldier in the military, the clone locked up in Marian Bowles's house, and Mark Rollins.
  • Fake Nationality: Tatiana Maslany is Canadian, but she plays characters of British, American, German, and Ukrainian origin.
    • Fake Brit: Both Tatiana Maslany (Sarah) and Jordan Gavaris (Felix) are Canadian.
    • Michiel Huisman (Cal) is Dutch.
  • Fan Community Nickname: Clone Club. In some circles, especially devoted fans are "Clonesbians."
  • Hey, It's That Guy!:
  • I Knew It: Helena's survival was predicted by a large enough portion of the fanbase that there was a Fan Nickname for it: "The Ballpit of Denial". Ok, fair enough. What pushes this into truly eerie territory is the explanation for her survival: she is a mirror twin, and her heart was on the reverse side of her body as everyone else's. This exact explanation was predicted by fans from the mere fact that she is left-handed.
  • Lying Creator: The showrunners knowingly lie about the fate of Helena. They're quite proud of it.
  • Plays Great Ethnics: Tatiana "Tania" Maslany, is Romanian-Canadian. A sort of female counterpart to Tony Shalhoub.
  • Promoted Fanboy: Patrick Adams (of Suits fame) has stated that he loves Orphan Black and of Helena in particular. He has a guest spot in "To Hound Nature in Her Wanderings" in which he gets to romance Helena very, very briefly.
  • Real-Life Relative: Alison's adopted children, Oscar and Gemma, are played by siblings Drew and Millie Davis.
