SAN DIEGO (AP) — If Tatiana Maslany is upset she wasn't nominated for an Emmy for portraying multiple clones on TV's "Orphan Black," she didn't show it at Comic-Con.
The actress appeared Friday alongside co-stars including Jordan Gavaris and Maria Doyle Kennedy.
When the moderator asked Maslany about getting overlooked for an Emmy bid, she said, "We're at a point where television is extremely exciting. I just feel really lucky to be at this point in television history making a show like this."
The audience didn't hold back. Maslany received a standing ovation when she walked out. One fan presented her with homemade nesting dolls in the likeness of her various characters. At the end of the panel, security guards had to keep some people from rushing the stage.
Actor Ari Millen was also there. It was revealed at the end of season two that he is the new male clone on the show.
He said he's "had a couple of conversations" with the writers and looks forward to the "personal journey" of making his clones unique from one another.
Millen also knows he can look to Maslany for guidance.
He called her "one of the most generous actors out there," adding, "I know if I have any questions, she'll be there."
"Orphan Black" will return for its 10-episode third season in 2015 on BBC America.
