Zow! Regina-born actress and General Fools alumnus Tatiana Maslany has won a special jury prize at this year's Sundance Film Festival for her work in Grown Up Movie Star (CBC). Prairie dog readers might remember Maslany's appearance on our cover five or six years ago, when she starred in the Globe Theatre's holiday production The Secret Garden. We'll try to dig up the image for Dog Blog. For a few years now, Tatiana's been a busy and successful working actress with stints on shows and films like Being Erica, Prairie Giant: The Tommy Douglas Story, Renegadepress.com and George Romero's Diary Of The Dead. I'm a fan of her entertaining (and starring!) role in Ginger Snaps 2: Unleashed, where she played a uniquely troubled child fascinated by werewolves. Here's her resume on the Internet Movie Database.
Congratulations and a happy prairie dog bark to Tatiana!
