There's an old actor's joke that no matter what a show is about, the actor always seems to think it's about him. Like the spear-carrier in Romeo and Juliet who says, "Well, there's this guy, and he's carrying a spear..."
That's just how James Callis, the sexily duplicitous Dr. Gaius Baltar on The SCI FI Channel's new Battlestar Galactica series, relates to SCI FI's hit series, which returns for a second season in July.
"It's in space," Callis says. "The world's ended... [But] it's not all a total disaster, because I'm running around, and Tricia's in my head. And that seriously seems to get a lot of viewers."
Tricia, as in Tricia Helfer, who plays the drop-dead sexy Cylon, Number Six. Partly a figment of Baltar's feverish paranoia, partly a bizarre connection that's been evolving from a game of control into something much, much deeper, Six steamed up TV screens with Baltar from their introduction in the original Galactica miniseries. And they've just kept at it with their perplexing interludes throughout season one. At the end of the season, Baltar and Six found themselves on Kobol, the ancestral home planet of human race, and their unholy coupling promised to produce...a holy child? A Clyon savior? The Antichrist?
With the second season of Battlestar Galactica now in production, Callis and Helfer sat down to talk about their alter egos, each other and what kind of hell they plan to unleash on humanity next.
