Taking over someone else's identity could mean taking on all of their problems. From the premise of BBC America's upcoming drama Orphan Black, Tatiana Maslany's character Sarah may be learning that the hard way. BBC America recently released a teaser for the original series that's set to debut next year, and now we have a new poster and the first photo for the series.
Executive produced by Ivan Schneeberg, David Fortier, Graeme Manson and John Fawcett, Orphan Black stars Tatiana Maslany as Sarah, an orphan who assumes the identity of a woman whose suicide she witnesses. As the deceased woman looks just like her, Sarah is able to take over her life, including her boyfriend and bank account, but in doing so, she finds herself tangled in a mystery when she discovers that she and the deceased woman are clones, and maybe not the only ones.
We shared the teaser for new series yesterday, which shows various different women who all look the same and are asking the question, "When did I become us?" The new poster for the series focuses on the idea of different people sharing the same face.
The faces have separate mouths and noses, but they appear to share eyes, which are the only part of the image in color. The poster focuses on the bizarre mystery behind this intriguing new series, which joins BBC America's Supernatural Saturday when it premieres Saturday, March 30 at 9/8c.
BBC America also shared this first photo, which shows the streetwise Sarah.
It's probably just the hair and eye make-up in this photo, but she kind of reminds me of Avril Lavigne there...
