Brief on-set interview & first look at BSG Season 4

Canada's Space channel recently visited the Battlestar Galactica sets during filming and had the opportunity to chat with Edward James Olmos, Mary McDonnell, Jamie Bamber and Tahmoh.

The actors each speak briefly about the fourth season and what it means for the series to be coming to an end. Interspersed with the interview segments are clips from an upcoming Season 4 scene that should be considered spoilery.

Here's what Tahmoh said (& some screencaps) for those of you who can't watch:

"This show has always been recognized for how realistic it is in its storyline and what have you. And I think they realized we had to eventually get to Earth. We were just coming to the end; it was finally at that point. If they really wanted to, they could stretch it out and maybe give us a season 5, but I don't think it was the right thing to do--out of respect for the show. And so I think, as the actors involved in the show, we also respect that. We're all very, very sad to see it go; that's all there is to it, but we know why, we understand why."
You can watch it streaming on Spacecast, if you can bear to watch an interview with Elisha Cuthbert about the horrible Captivity movie first.

Or you can download just the 3 minute BSG portion of the show, thanks to Michelle from Aaron Douglas Fans.
