"My burp tastes like pumpkin cheesecake." - cambiare-idea
#in the hands of almost any other actor#this would collapse the entire artifice of the show & the contrivance of one actress playing about a dozen clones#the integrity of each performance would break down#you’d be left with the sense that the clones are interchangeable women with only superficial differences in appearance & mannerism#but somehow she’s able to layer these performances one over another like skins#there’s a tangible difference between tatiana maslany as alison hendrix#and tatiana maslany as sarah manning as alison hendrix#each of the clones is so whole and unique and distinct that the performances are collectively an argument:#these human beings aren’t interchangeable#they share DNA but environment and nurture and epigenetics have made them completely singular individuals#[they aren’t even all women]#you can’t generalise them; there’s no single trait they all share#except that they’re human beings not biological objects to be exploited#her work is such a tour de force sometimes it just leaves you breathless (via elucipher)
