Meet The New ‘Orphan Black’ Clone
There’s a new clone in town and you’ll meet her in Season 2 of Orphan Black! Her name is Jennifer Fitzsimmons, she’s 28 years old, a teacher and a swim coach.
The new season will feature a series of made-for-TV video diaries, starring Jennifer, and Entertainment Weekly, which has the BBC America series on its current cover, has released a sneak peak, which shows some pretty creepy footage. “In what provides a haunting contrast,” the site reports, “We see a just recently diagnosed Jennifer from her very first entry, as well as an entry from later in which the now hairless and clearly hurting subject struggles to even speak from her hospital room.”
Jennifer looks to be very healthy in her first video entry, but by the end, she’s extremely ill, bald and shaken up. “Every week the Dyad tries a new treatment. Nothing works. I’m just getting sicker,” says the character, played by Tatiana Maslany. “Dr. Leekie said he can help, but he lied.”
Does Cosima Meet The New Clone?
Cosima comes across these video diaries, and is also understandably shaken up.
“Jennifer is a bright-eyed Midwestern pure of heart girl,” show creater Graeme Manson told Entertainment Weekly. Co-creater John Fawcett adds, “Jennifer is a clone who was naïve, she didn’t know she was a clone, and was being monitored by her boyfriend. She gets sick, and with a kind of the version of the illness that Katja had. And of course, a version of the illness that Cosima has. Just that discovery alone is the kind of discovery that shakes Cosima. It really rattles her.”
We are rattled, too! HollywoodLifers, what do you think about the new clone and eerie video diaries? Let us know, if you’re a fan of Orphan Black!
