With tremendous thanks to Marcel of Galactica.TV, here is an interview conducted by Marcel with Tahmoh at the Battlestar Starfury convention last weekend. Michelle Forbes briefly breaks in to chide Tahmoh to "be more serious."
[The interview is 20 minutes, so it takes a minute or so to load in the player. Or you can download it here (14 mb). If anyone has suggestions for a free host with higher streaming bandwidth, let me know.]
Update: Whedonesque is also hosting the interview. Thanks!
Tahmoh addresses a lot of lingering fan questions: What does the "C" in Karl C. Agathon mean? What was Helo's backstory? He also talks about how he relates to Helo and Helo's relationships with Kara & Lee.
He also answers some of the Dollhouse questions that I sent to Marcel:
- What has been the biggest difference between working on Battlestar and working on Dollhouse?
- As a character outside the Dollhouse, working to discover its secrets, has Paul interacted with much of the Dollhouse cast? Or are you/he as isolated as Helo was on Caprica in Season 1?
- What's it like working with some of the same people on Dollhouse as you did on Battlestar (Jane Espenson, Felix Alcala, Ron Hardy)?
- Have you bumped into any actors on other FOX shows while filming Dollhouse?
- How does working in LA compare with working in Vancouver? Do you get recognized more in LA than you did/do in Vancouver?
- What's the last movie you saw? Or what are you reading now?
Marcel has previously done two other interviews with Tahmoh. You can find them here (Nov. 2006) and here (Aug. 2007).
