Galactica Cast in the Dark
Friday, April 28, 2006
It appears that the high level of secrecy surrounding the new Caprica series even involved the cast of Battlestar Galactica. In a preview to a MediaBLvd Magazine interview with Grace Park, the actor admits that she did not know of the spinoff until the press release.
"Grace Park says that the cast of Battlestar Galactica didn't know that the spinoff prequel Caprica was in the works until Wednesday, the same day the rest of the world first heard about it. She received a call from her manager, who read about it in Variety. Trish Helfer also sent an email out to the cast, which was the first that most of the rest heard about the show being developed.
Grace said this in an interview Thursday with MediaBlvd Magazine, which will be published next week both in the Magazine, and on the Battlestar Galactica fan site, bsgtns.com.
Grace mentions many other interesting facts about season 3. Another tidbit she mentioned; on the set, the 7 Cylon's revealed so far are referred to as the Significant Seven. The 5 as of yet unrevealed models are referred to as the Final Five. The "Five" unrevealed models are so secret, that even the other Cylons are programmed to not think about them, and don't know what they look like or what they are doing.
Look for the full article, along with the podcast of the interview next week in MediaBlvd Magazine."
Once the Grace Park interview is published, Caprica Report will follow up with any addition Caprica information, should it be revealed. I am truly amazed that such a tight lid has been kept regarding the creation of the show. More to report as it comes in.
