» The Art of Acting by Tatiana Maslany
Posture (submitted by areyoutatiana)
Alison moves and stands restricted in a formal but reserved posture. As Tatiana mentioned in one of her interviews, she considers Alison to be a trained Ballerina, hence the posture and tightness .
Sarah is more relaxed and likes to lean on one leg, not giving a damn about things.
Cosima struts her stuff around. Tatiana mentioned that Cosima knows she is cute, and she likes to take advantage of that fact.
Helena hardly ever uses her hands (behind or front). They are always almost on her sides and she slouches - walking or standing, the introvert that she is

After getting sucked into the Song of Ice and Fire series of fantasy novels by watching HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” I became intrigued by author George R.R. Martin’s in-depth descriptions of each major character’s heraldry, and the ways in which their symbols seemed to establish a “brand” for each of the story’s families.
I hadn’t seen a design take on the sigils that I was fond of, and so a personal mission to craft an icon for each of them began. Of course, there’s hundreds of crests, so some lesser houses didn’t quite make the cut. Sorry Manderlys of White Harbor.
I feel bad for always leaving katja out of things and thoughts
[I’M SURE I WOULD HAVE LOVED HER]
but I just really want to know if katja even liked rock n roll
and this has been a random katja post
rock n’ roll
You know what always gets to me about Katja?
That every part of the rock n’ roll persona we attach to her was formed from Sarah having to excuse an absolutely destroyed hotel room. That’s it.
This was not a ‘rough night’ in Katja’s extensive social calendar. This was Helena going apeshit. Complete with noise complaint.
Helena tore the place apart, clearly getting so frustrated that she took it out on the room itself - Sink, mirror, pillows, duvet, mattress, vases, room decor & requiring professional carpet cleaning services.
That is terrifying.
Imagine tiny Helena breaking a sink…? That’s aggressive, and powerful. I bet if we looked in that bathroom, there would be blood there too.
We have entirely no indications about Katja’s actual life or personality except for her apparent wealth, and…well…that she’s German, and sick.
Yet we have this persona for Katja that has attached so well to her character; as this fun-loving, outgoing social animal that Sarah entirely creates, exclusively so that Katja is seen as such a party girl, that she doesn’t bat an eye at $6000 worth of damage.
When in reality, Katja was most likely terrified, and curled up in that room alone, contemplating her mortality just like Cosima is beginning to. Only Katja is in a foreign country, suffering, and her sole motivation there is to contact the other clones and warn them. What’s more, we know that Helena who was aiming to kill her, followed her - and of course succeeded.
I don’t know about you, but that’s goddamn tragic. Especially since the clearest memory we have of Katja is Rock N’ Roll.
