Tatiana Maslany, she is the only actress to ever play 10 different characters in a series; ranging from a soccer-mom to a transgender man. These characters are so different from each other that you may hate or love them but ultimately she is the one playing them all. Other actors play their roles effortlessly and have you feeling all types of emotions. Acting in this show is at its very best. You will not be disappointed.
