YES! We all love our Major Crimes and it’s #2 cable show behind Game Of Thrones! You get it? Behind Game of Thrones! And what about G.W. Bailey’s words?

Everybody ignores us except the fans

We do love you our dear Provenza, and so we love our Captain Raydor, and Lieutenants Andy Flynn and Mike Tao, and detectives Sanchez and Sykes, and Rusty, and Taylor, and Hobbs, and Morales, and Chief Howard and pretty much any amazing guest star the show brings on.

Number 2 on cable statistics, absolute #1 to its fans!

Once again, I  have decided to open up the interview vault and revisit some of the many interviews I have had the pleasure of writing over the years and that just appeared in-print and not on-line. Today’s interview is with Mary McDonnell, who talks about her work in Battlestar Galactica. Enjoy, and keep coming back for more familiar faces and shows!

Having survived not only the initial Cylon sneak attack on the Twelve Colonies of Kobol, but also a bout with cancer, Laura Roslin faced yet another upheaval in her life when, at the end of Battlestar Galactica’s second season, she lost her bid for presidential reelection to Gaius Baltar. Roslin subsequently took up residency on New Caprica and began teaching again, only to have her future and those of her fellow humans threatened with the arrival of the Cylons. When the show’s third season opened, the ex-president went from educator to underground insurgent, giving her alter ego, actress Mary McDonnell, that much more to think about when playing Roslin.

“It was wonderful to step back into the role at the start of season three because I love playing my character so much,” says McDonnell. “From Laura’s standpoint, it was fascinating to step back into the position of teaching, and she really did enjoy being with the children again in that little schoolhouse. I wish the circumstances on New Caprica weren’t so abysmal because it would have been quite interesting to explore her natural talents as an educator.

A/N: I don’t own this interview. It’s only being reported from the original source that it’s quoted on the top of the article for the sole purpose of not losing it, in case it gets down on the original blog.
