“Orphan Black” is not only introducing an entire line of male clones, played by Ari Millen, in the new year, it has also added a whole slew of new actors in key roles for Season 3.
BBC America announced that Justin Chatwin, James Frain, Ksenia Solo, Kyra Harper and Earl Pastko will all join the cast in recurring and guest star roles. “Orphan Black” Season 3 has already begun shooting in Toronto and is set to premiere in 2015. Here’s a quick rundown of the new faces.
Jason Kellerman, played by Justin Chatwin
Ferdinand, played by James Frain
Shay, played by Ksenia Solo
Dr. Coady, played by Kyra Harper
Bulldog, played by Earl Pastko
In terms of pure speculation, it appears that Chatwin’s Jason could have a spark with Tatiana Maslany’s Sarah — a ruggedly handsome, street-smart guy with a slightly shady job sounds kind of like her dream man — while Solo’s Shay sounds like she’s Cosima’s kind of girl. Meanwhile, you don’t usually toss around words like “secretive” and “ruthless” as character descriptions unless said characters are baddies, so it looks like Dr. Coady, Ferdinand and his Bulldog will turn out to be pretty evil. Again, speculation only, but it sounds about right.
Of course, “Orphan Black” is always surprising. The show will return to BBC America in 2015.
