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.

It’s another week and another case for the Major Crimes squad tonight when Downton Abbey star Julian Ovenden, who played Charles Blake on the PBS drama, joins the cast as a smug but dashing British reporter with an unshakable faith in his own abilities.

Episode six begins when an English couple, who are celebrating their second honeymoon following the husband’s four-year battle with cancer, are reliving their honeymoon by driving down the California coast, and when they get to Venice, a guy tries to snatch her purse and the husband fights the guy off and gets shot to death.

The Venice Beach robbery puts L.A.’s $20 billion dollar tourist industry at risk when the English journalist tries riding their tragedy to a career high.

In an earlier interview, executive producer James Duff told, “He turns it into a cause célèbre because of guns in America. So this foreign journalist is saying this could never happen anywhere else, and there is the threat that England might put Los Angeles on its watch list for tourists, which is bad.”

Watch the video as Ovenden’s character tries to insinuate that there have been several armed robberies and witnesses have claimed to see a gun, but Lieutenant Provenza (G.W. Bailey) puts him in his place, saying, “If you interviewed every single victim then you know the answer to that is none.”

The reporter goes on, “Just because no one saw a gun doesn’t mean it wasn’t there.  Are you searching for a suspect? Is there a manhunt in progress?”

To which Sharon (Mary McDonnell) responds that not even Scotland Yard can search for an unknown suspect, adding, “The registered owner is being brought downtown as we speak.”

Reporter: “Is he considered to be a person of interest?”

Provenza: “Maybe even a suspect.”

At which point they are interrupted by the arrival of said person, whose unexpected presence makes one of the funny moments in the case. Check it out.
