Tatiana Maslany Sets the Bar On Being A ‘Strong’, Talented Woman; ‘Orphan Black’ Star Hates Hollywood Stereotyping
Tatiana Maslany has expressed how she felt about redefining the term “strong woman”. Giving a say about it, does she have what it takes to be one? Read on for more details.
This twenty-nine year old woman, who’s having her breakout role in the series “Orphan Black,” made the audience quite entertained as they have shown the Emmy Nominee’s character as Alison, Cosima, Helena, Rachel, Krystal and Sarah during her appearance on The Tonight’s show, starring Jimmy Fallon, at the same time comparing it to the others having only one character.
“You’re your own category!” Jimmy Fallon said.
In this Hollywood Industry a woman’s character is expected to be locked up in a cage having a really limited space for them.
But Tatiana Maslany showed how people must not be stereotypical of what she’s capable of such as judging whether or not she can portray a lead role with ten characters as well as even making men as the default in movies, TV and media, GirlTalkHQ reported.
“It’s just about bringing that sensitivity, your emotional life and your understanding of humanity that women have that’s different to men,” Maslany told People.com.
She also stated that the term “strong women“ is such a blanket term because the idea of it today is not very expansive and quite limiting, Huffingtonpost reported.
Another issue Maslany brought up is about sexism, which she was able to experience countless times having seventy to eighty percent of male on set.
It became a lot on media when Maslany implies the empowerment to herself upon rejecting to wax her moustache, telling them that she would only do it if it’s really needed and makes sense.
So what are the odds that a feminist like Tatiana Maslany can somehow make a difference? Big-time!
As what she once said, having a strong female character doesn’t mean she’s beyond suffering and fragility. There is fearlessness. No counter argument can beat that.
