Is it fun having two different love interests on the show?
Hell yeah! It’s like, “Oh, who am I making out with today?!” Tahmoh [Tahmoh Penikett, “Helo”] calls me the Cylon hussy. And Aaron [Aaron Douglas, “Chief Tyrol”] just calls me the Cylon slut.
Well, you’re not really a Cylon slut. You’re two different people!
I know! It sounds so nerdy when I do that, but I’m like, “Aaron! Two f***ing different people! Get it!” But I’m like, “I sound ridiculous right now. Just walk away from him! Walk away.” But a part of me is like, “They’re two different people!” My friend makes fun of me, because when I get adamant about it, she says, “You’re crazy, you know that?”
When you found out the first Sharon on Galactica was dying, was it sad to say goodbye to that character? Did you know she was coming back?
Oh, I had no idea she was going to come back! I thought it was totally sad. I was actually so much more sad when I watched how they edited it and it seemed like you didn’t get much of Aaron’s reaction. You didn’t get much of Tyrol’s reaction, so it seemed quite short. And because you didn’t get to see much of his grieving process, it was sort of an abrupt death. And then the next thing you know, she’s in the morgue and people kind of forget to grieve for her. You know, somewhere in your mind you sort of make the connection that she is dead, without grieving for her.
