Celia McDonaghy addresses the end of Orphan Black

Hey guys, Celia here... I wanted to take a moment to thank you all for all of your support over the past five years. Orphan Black would not be what it became without the members of my beloved Clone Club. You guys are what true fans are made of and I'm so blessed to have had any sort of impact on your lives.

When I began this journey I had no idea what to expect. I knew the concept of the show and I knew how they wanted to accomplish things, but I didn't know if I was going to be the right fit. I loved the story and each and every character, but I was, at times, utterly filled with self-doubt. But once this ball got rolling, it was all of you that made me believe that this wasn't just something special, but something spectacular.

The fans of this show made it what it was. You made it a joy to work on each character. The joy you all took in each clone I created made the job worth it. The representation you were able to see on the screen, made the job worth it. A show like this, complex in so many ways, doesn't always get the recognition it deserves, but that didn't stop any of you from loving us and nurturing us from the moment we first aired. I know there were doubts and critisisms when I was announced as attached to this project and I can't say that I blamed anyone. In this realm I had to prove myself to you and prove myself worthy of your praise and love over the years. I sincerely hope that I accomplished all the show set out to do and that I never let you down.

It's hard to say goodbye to something that has been a huge part of my life for so many years. I normally live in a world of film, where we get it done and then leave it behind. It was eye opening to have to live and breathe, not only one character for a number of years, but several. The world of Orphan Black is one that I wont be able to fully shed for a long time to come, and that's all because of you.

Orphan Black may be over, in the sense that the finale has aired, but our world will live on through all of the fan art and writings and love that you gave us. While our journey together has ended, the best way you can honor our girls is by continuing to create, continuing to love, continuing to explore, and continuing to question. Above all, continue to accept and love one another. If that's something that lives on long after we've stopped filming, then I'll consider my time on Orphan Black to be the best of my career.

I love you all, meatheads.
