Who is She-Hulk Tatiana Maslany?

TATIANA Maslany has landed her biggest role to date — in all senses of the word — as She-Hulk, Bruce Banner's cousin.

The Emmy-award winning Canadian actress seems to be a perfect fit for the new Disney+ series.

Who is Tatiana Maslany?

Tatiana Maslany has been acting in theatre since the age of nine. 

Maslany spoke to Interview Magazine about the beginnings of her acting career.

She said: "When I was nine, my mom saw this audition, a cattle call for kids to play orphans in Oliver at the local community theater.

"I auditioned for that and it was my first time singing in public."

Maslany grew up in Canada, and attended a Catholic school, where she became fluent in French.

However, Maslany has now become a vocal advocate for LGBTQ rights and has been critical of the faith because of its attitudes towards homosexuality.

She said: “Our LGBTQ fanbase has always been so deeply important to us.We realized really early on the show was striking a cord with LGBTQ youths and adults finding themselves and seeing themselves reflected back.

"It was eye-opening to feel that response, and how impactful it could be, and how important it was to people. We felt protective of the community and aware of them in our writing."

Tatiana was dating Downton Abbey star Tom Cullen from 2011 for eight years but the pair are rumoured to have broken up.

Although the couple have not made an official announcement, they have both unfollowed one another on Instagram and fans have speculated that Tatiana has moved out of the LA home that they bought together in 2017.

What has she starred in?

Tatiana landed the starring role in the BBC America thriller series Orphan Black in which she had to learn to master British, German, Ukrainian and American accents.

Her role on the show, which ran for five seasons, was critically acclaimed.

Maslany was nominated for three Emmys and a Golden Globe as a result and she won an Emmy for best actress in 2016.

Tatiana has been chosen for the role of She-Hulk for her own Disney Plus show, also known to comic fans as Jennifer Walters, cousin of the Hulk, Bruce Banner.

Tatiana has most recently appeared in the HBO drama Perry Mason and has had roles in Heartland, The Nativity and Being Erica.

The star also appeared in the movie Stronger, which tells the story of a Boston Marathon bombing victim, alongside Jake Gyllenhaal as well as in crime thriller Destroyer, alongside Nicole Kidman.

Maslany also voiced Netflix original animated series 3Below: Tales of Arcadia.
