ScifiandTVTalk shares an interview with Tahmoh about his role as Matt Ellman in Riverworld.
This has only happened to me a few times, including with my character of Helo on Battlestar, which is when I first read the [audition] sides for the character of Matt in Riverworld I thought, ‘I understand this guy; I know where he’s coming from,’” says Penikett. When the pieces fall together like that, you’ve got to trust your instincts, so I was really eager to get into the audition room.

I met with [Riverworld director] Stuart Gillard and, honestly, I was a bit rusty as far as the audition process goes. You can be a professional actor who has been working all year long, which I’d been, but if it’s been a while since your last audition it can feel a little weird. So in this instance I had a couple of rough starts, but I subsequently worked on three scenes with Stuart and he seemed pleased with what I’d done.

The Green Chain DVD was launched on Earth Day, April 22. Read more here.
