Cynthia Galant Reminisces About Orphan Black
In An Interview for Reel Geek Girls June 8, 2018
Tell us something funny or surprising that happened on the set of Orphan Black.
Cynthia: There was one line in one of the episodes that was actually cut from the final episode and i’m sad because it was the funniest thing I’ve ever read. Where [Susan Duncan]… she’s referring to Ira and she says “Ira, have you shown Charlotte your toy soldier?” and he says “They’re military figurines.” And it was the funniest thing I’ve ever read.
You’ve spent most of your time onscreen alongside Tatiana Maslany. What was that like? Did she provide you advice for the future?
Cynthia: Tat is great, she’s amazing. She’s so funny, super nice, super talented, oh my gosh. She never really directly gave me any advice but I did observe things that she did. Like for example, if she had to be out of breath during a scene she would run on the spot before the camera started rolling and [do] little things like that to make her act so much more realistic. It’s really impressive, I love her so much.
