A quick question with Tatiana Maslany, who denies she’s She-Hulk


Content of the article continued

Tatiana Maslany played a plethora of characters in Orphan Black, including Cosima (left) and Sarah.

Q: As a music fan, what are you listening to right now?

A: Right now, that’s such a good question. Every time I am asked to empty. … I listen everywhere on the map. This guy called AG Cook, I really am right now, who’s like a PC Music guy. I always come back to Sophie. I’m listening to Die Antwoord’s new album.

“I’m going back to Death Grips and Kendrick – I just started listening, it’s called Dissect, where this guy mostly breaks down hip-hop albums and he goes through Kendrick Lamar’s Damn and that gives me double – like I do.” am already a huge fan of him, but i can really explain why he is so awesome. It is really exciting.

Q: I was hoping to ask you about some of the things you do too. Obviously you’re the new She-Hulk, which is a big deal –

A: It’s actually not a real thing and it’s like a press release that got out of hand. It’s definitely not – I’ve been connected to these things in the past and the press has taken to it, but that’s not really a thing, unfortunately.

Q: Seriously? I think I even saw it on the BBC as serious news outlets.

A: Yeah, I don’t know how these things go – I don’t know, I don’t know. You know better; I have no idea. (Laughs.)

Q: OK, I won’t ask you about that then! What else is going on in your professional life? I’m sure COVID threw a wrench into things.

A: Yeah. I think a cartoon I’m a part of was just announced today. It’s called Harper House and it’s a great new comedic animation. I play a weird little girl called Ollie, who’s the girl in this family and her brain works on a very different level and she’s very cool, very smart without being smart. … It’s for adults, of course.

Maslany had to rush to another call before I could ask about life in Toronto (which her Instagram suggests – she lived in Los Angeles) and giving a platform to marginalized voices (again once, showing her Instagram). I also wondered if she missed Orphan Black, and if she was still improvising (remember the general freaks? So good). Questions for next time!
