Orphan Black to She-Hulk: Tatiana Maslany’s Best Roles So Far


In the 2018 movie Destroyer, Maslany plays Petra – a young woman involved with the gang of bank robbers that Nicole Kidman’s Erin infiltrates. Years after Erin’s undercover job goes wrong, she uses Petra to look for the gang leader, Silas (Toby Kebbell), to get revenge for her partner Chris (Sebastian Stan) who was killed during the undercover op. While this movie is mostly focused on Erin’s journey, and Nicole Kidman’s phenomenal performance as a grizzled and jaded cop, Maslany really holds her own against Kidman in the few scenes they have together. Even though this isn’t Maslany’s only “villainous” role, it is a little jarring to see her holding up a bank and beating up Nicole Kidman on screen when their characters reconnect. However, this Karyn Kusama directed film is well worth the watch for Maslany and Kidman’s respective performances.  

Perry Mason

Tatiana Maslany’s Sister Alice McKeegan is easily one of the best parts of HBO’s recent Perry Mason reboot. Sister Alice is the evangelist face of the Radiant Assembly of God in 1930s Los Angeles. She serves as the lead preacher and spiritual guide for the church. This is a role that could easily go way too far into cheesy-televangelist territory, but Maslany brings a nuance to Sister Alice that lets us see the duality of this character – the on-stage and in-church persona and the young woman who has been used by others, including her own mother, for years to further their own agenda. Maslany plays this character with compassion, and makes it incredibly hard not to feel for her, no matter your views of organized religion.

She-Hulk: Attorney at Law

As Jennifer Walters, a.k.a. She-Hulk, Maslany has finally been able to bring her talents to the MCU. While the Disney+ series may have had a bumpy start with mixed reactions, Maslany’s performance is one of the best parts of the show. She-Hulk: Attorney at Law gives Maslany a chance to showcase what a great comedic actor she is, and it seems like she’s having a great time with the role. Maslany somehow makes both Walters and her green alter-ego relatable and down-to-Earth. Maslany and her character are both a welcome addition to this phase of the MCU, and we look forward to seeing how Walters will factor into the bigger story post She-Hulk.
