Emily Nussbaum on Tatiana Maslany’s performance in the sci-fi thriller “Orphan Black” (subscription required): http://nyr.kr/1i7OUnH
“If it weren’t for Tatiana Maslany, the show’s star, ‘Orphan Black’ would be just a likable-enough thriller, with Toronto local color—enough to recommend it to a Canadaphilic sci-fi buff like me, but maybe not to you.
Maslany explodes that calculation entirely. The actress delivers a performance so magnetic that it transforms the show into something with staying power, a near must-watch.”

Yesss. I am in love Tatiana and her crazy amazing acting chops. Also, she’s Canadian, which makes me love her more. She is a star.
Try not to compromise. So many people don’t do what they really want in their hearts because they feel like they’re not good enough, or they’re not smart enough, or they’re not talented enough… anything. And that doesn’t matter. In order for you to live a remarkable life — in order for you to live a life that is fulfilling — you need to be able to go after what you want. And if you don’t, you’re not going to achieve it — ever.
