Romanian. After three years of widely decried snubs, she won the Emmy Award for Best Lead Actress in a Drama Series for her work in season four of ''Series/OrphanBlack''.


* [[ActingForTwo Acting For Ten]]: The current clone count in ''Series/OrphanBlack''. There are several others in the background, but they mostly qualify as {{Posthumous Character}}s and don't have much if any screen presence. That's also not mentioning Pupok the scorpion, who she both voiced and did 'the sound effects' for.



* DawsonCasting: Thanks to her diminutive stature and youthful features, Maslany convincingly played teenagers well into her late Twenties.
* FakeNationality: In ''Series/OrphanBlack'', again. Sarah [[spoiler:and Rachel]] are English, Katja is German, Helena is Ukrainian, Cosima and Jennifer are American.



* [[StarMakingRole Star-Making Roles]]: ''Series/OrphanBlack'', which is an unusual case because it's not just ''one'' role, but like most examples is still one series. (In her native Canada, while she wasn't super-famous, she wasn't obscure like she was internationally)
* MethodActing: To help with getting into/staying in character for each distinctive ''Series/OrphanBlack'' clone, Maslany employs techniques including dance and music playlists.
* TypeCasting: She probably had the best StarMakingRole ever in order to [[AvertedTrope avert that]].

* MagnumOpus: Her performances in ''Series/OrphanBlack'' is shaping up to be a contender for the greatest performance(s) by an actress in TV history. Critics and fans agree her chances of ever topping it are as good as Creator/BryanCranston's of topping ''Series/BreakingBad;'' i.e. almost nonexistent.
