Tatiana Maslany, the Sarah Manning of “Orphan Black,” attended the event with the show’s co-creator Graeme Manson and other cast members like Jordan Gavaris, Maria Doyle Kennedy, and Kristian Bruun and actively took part in the question-answer round. Whereas the co-creator and cast members discussed the upcoming season of the show, Maslany talked about how she was able to connect with the fans of LGBT characters shown on the show.

“I feel such a strong sense of responsibility to the fans. I knew subconsciously we were talking about bodily autonomy, but it was reading essays from trans people and gay people that opened my eyes to how that was being talked about,”  Maslany said.

When asked about the upcoming season, Manson carefully answered the questions without revealing the details about the same. Even members of the star cast seemed unaware of the upcoming seasons’ story and said that they came to know about the story at the time of script reading not before.
