“We’re the coolest, no question about it,” says Penikett.
He recounts how “Eureka” actor Ed Quinn tracked the “Battlestar” cast down when he first arrived in Vancouver. “We didn’t know who he was,” Penikett says. “He was, ‘Welcome to town. Would you like to come over and watch the fights?’ The guy couldn’t shut up about the show. It was awesome.”
Apparently, the relationship has continued.
“I’ve been a fan since the beginning,” says Quinn, speaking in early May. “That show, the writing, it’s just opera. It’s so incredibly good. Aaron Douglas is a friend of mine, and I have been texting him, ‘You are a bleeping, bleeping Cylon, you bleeping traitor.’ He is so angry with me. He’s probably going to punch me.”
