We met on April 7th after L’Idiot. I drove six hours from a city a little west of Toronto because I wanted to thank you for the impact Delphine had on my life.
You were the first person in more than two years that I told about my health struggles and it was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. Before watching Orphan Black and seeing a character who was sick like me, I was lost in grief for a life I thought I would never be able to live. I didn’t think anyone could love a person who was sick. I didn’t think it was possible to have the future I’d dreamed about.
Orphan Black was some serious therapy I didn’t know I needed. It was a relief to see Cosima loved before anyone knew of her illness, loved after, and loved through all the ups and downs. Delphine was her ally, fighting for her health and the answers. I’ve never seen characters on screen going through the stuff I’ve been struggling with, and it brought me so much hope to see these possibilities that I hadn’t been able to imagine.
You were so kind to me while I was an absolute mess and I am so thankful for your patience. Thank you for hugging me when I couldn’t stop shaking. Thank you for making me laugh. Thank you for listening while I tried to put to words the impact the show had on my life. Thank you for being part of what has reignited my hope. I am so, so grateful.
