Orphan Black at Comic-Con 2014

Why Everyone Started Crying During Orphan Black's Comic-Con Panel

That was rough, you guys. Fans were walking away from Orphan Black's Comic-Con International: San Diego panel in tears. The hit BBC America sci-fi show, about a woman who discovers she is one of many clones, has unleashed a star in lead actress Tatiana Maslany. She recently took home her second Critics' Choice Award for best actress in a drama series. But her acting prowess in playing nine distinctive characters is only a small reason why such a rabid fandom has developed around the show. At this year's Comic-Con, it was the actress's humanity that was on full display. These tweets say it all.

An audience member gave Tatiana an award for "best actress in the world."

The clone nesting dolls!

. . . Because she can do anything.

Even drive a golf cart to her own panel!

Even Tatiana's costars are in awe of her talent.

She does drama — AND comedy super well.

But the most tear-jerking moment? This.

Here's exactly what went down.

She even discussed the subject before the panel, with the press.

"Tatiana teared up talking about how proud she is to play a transman."

Naturally, people refused to stop clapping for her.

We love Tatiana because she has compassion — but she's also kinda twisted.

Stay tuned for MORE from San Diego Comic-Con!
