Regina-native Tatiana Maslany won the Emmy for best lead actress in a drama on Sunday for her performances in the sci-fi series “Orphan Black.”
Maslany appeared shocked as she accepted the award and thanked the show’s creators for “this incredible dream job.”
She also said she felt “so lucky to be on a show that puts women at the centre.”
Maslany, often regarded as one of the hardest-working women in TV, plays multiple clones with varying personalities and accents in “Orphan Black.”
It was her second Emmy nomination for her work on the Toronto-shot show, which airs on Space and BBC America.
The sci-fi thriller recently aired its fourth season and the next season will be its final one.
