Tatiana Maslany needs to work on her cellphone techniques


Orphan Black star Tatiana Maslany plays a number of characters on the sci-fi clone series and even though she pulls off all those personas so perfectly, M3 host Matt Wells is interested in the tiniest details like, say, holding a cellphone.

When Wells asks Maslany how she goes about changing the behavioral patterns of each character, Maslany responds:”I think the cellphone thing is the one thing I’ve never done because I hold the cellphone the same for every character.” Wells goes on to argue that cellphones are one of the toughest parts of acting, though, and Maslany may not feel that stress, but she knows her co-star Kevin Hanchard definitely attests to this struggle. “He loathes the days where he has to talk on the phone to somebody. He’s like, ‘As an actor, that’s the thing I can’t do.’”
