Just in case you wanted to ensure that an extra dose of excellence made it to Comic-Con in San Diego this year, the following news is almost sure to make you celebrate: “Orphan Black” is heading to the convention! For the first time, the BBC America drama will host an hour-long panel discussion, and series star (and should-be Emmy favorite) Tatiana Maslany is going to be leading the way.
According to a new report from TVLine, the discussion is going to feature Maslany along with co-stars Jordan Gavaris and Dylan Bruce as well as show co-creators Graeme Manson and John Fawcett. This panel would take place on Friday, July 19 at 7:00 p.m. Pacific time, and there will be an autograph session the next day.
As for what has made “Orphan Black” the perfect show to take to Comic-Con this year, there are two primary things to consider:
1. The clones and characters are a nice supernatural twist, and Maslany completely kills it with a stunning performance for each clone making them all feel very different.
2. The show airs after “Doctor Who.” Pretty much any program that shares a programming block with the TARDIS is worthy of a little bit of extra attention and love.
While other shows are going to have more of an opportunity to have footage to show off at the convention, “Orphan Black” probably will not be in that boat. Instead, what you’re probably looking at here is a chance to hear some more scoop on the road ahead, even if there’s not any video footage to share.
