Tatiana Maslany - Sarah Manning, Orphan Black


Orphan Black is a Canadian series, combining thriller and science fiction, created by Graeme Manson and John Fawcett. It tells the story of Sarah Manning, a British con artist who witnesses the suicide of a woman who appears to be her double. She assumes the woman's identity and profession as a police inspector, and discovers that other look-alikes exist. They are genetically identical human clones, part of an illegal human cloning experiment, and are being targeted for assassination. The series raises questions about the moral and ethical implications of human cloning and its effects on identity.


Sarah Manning, rebellious punk on the run and British con artist, is a natural chameleon. She's a badass, a born outsider who lives on the bangs of society thanks to her intelligence. Despite her moral ambiguity, Sarah does her best to set things right so she can turn the page on her past, make enough money, and leave town with her foster brother, Felix, to be reunited with her estranged daughter, Kira. During her time with the clones, Sarah had to make some of the hardest choices of her life. While she initially wanted no part of the conspiracy problem the clones faced, concerned only with raising enough money to start afresh, she has since discovered that she cares for others more than she realized.

She and Kira are considered important and actively sought after by the Dyad Institute, due in part to the fact that she and her twin sister, Helena, are the only clones capable of reproducing, and Kira is the first descendant of one of the clones.
