Quick chat with Battlestar's Seelix

Tuesday February 17, 2009

SFX spoke to model, filmmaker and actress Jen Halley about her character Diana "Hardball" Seelix when we caught up with her at Starfury's Battlestar Galactica convention in December.

The rest of this interview will be appearing in our amazing Battlestar Galactica-themed special issue, on sale Wednesday 4 March with posters and gifts! But we thought you might like this brief snippet as a little treat to get you in the mood.

A brief excerpt of the snippett:

SFX: Did you blag any great souvenirs from the set?
Halley: "No, I didn't, I don't have the flight suit. But... Am I gonna get in trouble for this? They were kind of given to me - my dog tags! I have Seelix's dog tags. I'm gonna get in trouble now. [Laughs] Someone's gonna read this, and the NBC representative's gonna come knocking on my door, searching my house!"

Fringe's Joshua Jackson on father issues and melted brains

By Jenna Busch
ON 02/17/09

Joshua Jackson
, who plays the brilliant but troubled Peter Bishop in Fox's Fringe, told SCI FI Wire that upcoming episodes will test his newly rekindled relationship with his brilliant but addled father, Walter (John Noble).
"Well, I think ultimately over the course of the show it will be tested again and again," Jackson said in a group interview at New York Comic Con earlier this month. "And I don't think Peter would admit to anybody, including himself, the fact that he is so invested in or cares so much about his father's well-being. But, yeah, I think Walter's crazy. And crazy people do crazy things. And that relationship is going to be tested."
