The season 2 premiere of Orphan Black is still months away, but fans can get excited from the news of a hit TV star's guest appearance.
On Jan. 9, SPACE posted on Facebook that Michelle Forbes would have a guest role in the new season of Orphan Black. They also provided fans with a description of her character.
"Marian Bowles (Forbes) is a powerful new player at the Dyad Institute with a birds-eye view on the war between Sarah and Rachel," the description read.
Tatana Maslany, who plays the lead with many roles, confirmed the news by posting it on her Facebook.
Forbes has been in a bunch of notable TV roles already and will add Orphan Black to her resume. She has stared in The Killing, 24, Chicago Fire, Battlestar Galactica, and True Blood.
KpopStars reported that Forbes was exuberant to be joining the Clone Club. "I am ecstatic to be invited to play with this extraordinary company and on such a deeply complicated, mysterious, and emotional story. I could talk to the highly intelligent show-runners and writers all day long as the issues they're tackling are vast, to say the least. It's truly original and clever, not to mention its wit delights me to no end," Forbes expressed.
