Screen captures from last night’s Parks and Recreation episode are now in the gallery.
One of the things I love about running this website is that Tatiana has done so many movies and television shows that I am never without something to watch and screencap. Screen captures from Picture Day have been added to the gallery. Lastly, remember to keep voting for Tatiana for a People’s Choice Award!
At long last, here is the trailer for Cas and Dylan. The movie will be screened at the Whistler Film Festival next month.
Please vote for Tatiana for People’s Choice Awards’ Best Science Fiction or Fantasy TV Actress! She is up against tough competition, so please vote as much as you can.
Tatiana made her first appearance as Doctor Nadia on Parks and Recreation tonight. 150 screen captures can be found in the gallery.
Entertainment Tonight has an interesting new interview with Tatiana where she talks about her two-episode guest appearance in Parks and Recreation and Orphan Black season 2.
Beginning this Thursday, Maslany will play Nadia, a local doctor who catches Tom’s eye. I hung out in Tatiana’s Parks and Rec trailer in between takes (they were filming at a local roller rink) to find out why she was so excited to guest star on this show, discover which co-star is a card carrying member of the Clone Club and learn what she’s most excited to explore in the second season of Orphan Black!
ETonline: How did you come to guest star on Parks and Recreation?
Tatiana Maslany: Well, this is my favorite comedy, so when the producers reached out and asked if I wanted to do the show and I was like, “Obviously!” I mean, I’m terrified to do it but Amy Poehler is absolutely all my heroes. I’ve looked up to for years so to be here is kind of crazy.
ETonline: It’s smart comedy that lets women play women, not …
Maslany: “Boob girls.” Yeah, you’re right, the show is anchored by incredibly strong comedic females. And that’s so rare on TV today. I think Amy Poehler and Tina Fey have done so much for women in comedy in the sense that they’ve normalized it. You don’t think, “I’m going to watch that comedy starring a woman,” you think, “I’m going to watch that funny show.” They refuse to play the foils for men, or be reduced to the butt of every joke, and I love that about both of them.
ETonline: You have a background in improv, so does this feel more natural to you?
Maslany: I’ve done a lot of improv, but never in this kind of context or on this kind of platform. Drama is where I feel comfortable, so I actually find this scarier than diving into Orphan Black again. I know those characters so well now and that set feels like my home, so it’s intimidating coming into a new thing, but this is exactly the kind of test I need now to get myself back into acting.
ETonline: What do you like about Nadia?
Maslany: She’s an interesting combination of super responsible and careless, and Tom’s character lets her be young and dumb and fun, so she doesn’t have to be the responsible doctor she is every day. Which is a relief. For me, it’s about the connection between those two.
Screen captures from Violet and Daisy, which is just getting a DVD release now even though it was technically out in 2011, have been added to the gallery. Tatiana does not appear until the very end, but it was nice to see her in a scene with Saoirse Ronan, another of my favorite actresses.
There are only two more days until Tatiana makes her guest appearance on Parks and Recreation. Episode 6×5 airs October 17. You can watch a sneak peak right here if you live in the United States (I am blocked because I’m in Canada). Episode stills are in the gallery.
The last of the DVD screen captures from Heartland season 2 have been added to the gallery. I am waiting for the rest of season 3 to become available at my local library. Hopefully that will be soon!
