Tatiana Maslany Fires Back at ‘Reductive’ Strong Female Lead Trope: ‘As If We’re Supposed to Be Grateful’

Tatiana Maslany doesn’t need a trendy label to know she plays strong female characters. The “Orphan Black” Emmy winner and star of Disney+’s upcoming “She-Hulk: Attorney at Law” slammed the idea of a “strong female lead” category (ahem, sorry Netflix) in a recent interview with The Guardian. “It’s reductive,” Maslany explained. “It’s just as much...

Why ‘Better Call Saul’ Feels the Most Expansive When Sound Tells the Story

The 2022 Emmy nominations for Best Series Sound Design are a varied bunch: from the eldritch gurgling of “Stranger Things” to the explosive space adventures of “Picard,” “Star Trek: Strange New Worlds,” and “Boba Fett” to the retro, timey-wimey vibes of “Loki,” all these series feature nuanced and expansive work, creating fantastic worlds and immersing...

The actress spoke with “Emily the Criminal” co-star Theo Rossi during a SAG-AFTRA Foundation screening and Q&A moderated by IndieWire’s Eric Kohn. Plaza, who has made headlines for...
