Yes, that's more the type of ad I was expecting, obviously.

I'm rewatching episodes and totally agree that she deserves an Emmy - or 4

Soccer Mom
Ivory Tower

I'm impressed that she seems to have perfected the subtle differences between accents in North America let alone the European ones.

The European ones aren't all that impressive, although good enough for American work. But she does an amazing job of distinguishing the characters down to a very fine level (not just relying on clothing and an accent to do the work for her). Each character has her own very distinct personality.

As I said before, there's at least one occasion in each episode where I literally forget that it's all the same actor. (And some of that has to be down to the FX people; I've never seen "split-screen" work this good. I understand they actually invented new technology to "naturalize" it. But a lot of is it down to Maslany.)

There's an interview out there where the she and the showrunners are discussing it, and she mentions that she has a soundtrack for each one of the clones to help her get into the character space.

Still catching up with S1 of this great show, and I'd have to agree that Maslany's acting chops were REALLY on display in this ep....incredible!
