Tatiana Maslany took a break from her Off-Broadway show Mary Page Marlowe at Second Stage Theater to stop by The Late Show With Stephen Colbert July 24. The Emmy winner for Orphan Black is currently making her stage debut in the new play by Pulitzer Prize and Tony winner Tracy Letts.
Maslany was recently nominated for another Emmy for Orphan Black (her third nomination for the show) and combined two celebrations in a single evening.
“It was opening night of my first Off-Broadway play in New York,” she says of the day she found out. And Maslany is loving her time onstage: “It's the greatest joy of my life. I'm having a blast. We're a month from the end and I don't want it to be done.”
Having done theatre from a young age, Maslany returns to her roots in the play “about a seemingly ordinary woman's life, and we see 11 different moments from her life that have in some way impacted her and shaped her whether they are meaningful or innocuous. Six of us play her at various different ages. We deal with her religion, her affairs, her family life, her different husbands.”
Maslany also talked about her youngest childhood theatre roles and living in New York for the first time. Watch the full video above.
