Edward James Olmos Backstage Interview – Saturn Awards 2009

     June 25, 2009

battlestar_galactica_season_4_image__9_.jpgAs Admiral William Adama on “Battlestar Galactica”, Edward James Olmos delivered one of the best performances in sci-fi history. It’s the type of performance people are going to remember for a long time as he showed mainstream audiences what great science fiction is all about.

While “Battlestar Galactica” had its series finale earlier this year, for fans of the show, we’ve got one more thing left to watch. That’s because a lot of the cast filmed a TV movie called “The Plan” and it shows part of what happened in the Battlestar universe from the Cylons perspective.

According to Edward James Olmos, once we see the movie, it’ll make us want to watch the entire series all over again!

Anyway, at last night’s Saturn Awards I managed to get some time with the great actor backstage. After the jump you can see the interview. We talked about his thoughts on the series being over, what’s “The Plan” about, this year’s Comic-Con, and his thoughts on the finale. Take a look:
