When the cast found out which characters would be revealed as Cylons, Bamber revealed “Michael Hogan (‘Tigh’) and Aaron Douglas (‘Tyrol’), who were the sort of longstanding members of the cast, were absolutely shocked and angry. They felt a sense of betrayal by the writers that they’d been portraying all this stuff which was nothing but empty lies in their eyes. And they really did feel a sense of the rug being pulled from underneath them. I think the other two felt more excited. Michael Trucco (‘Anders’) and Rekha Sharma (‘Tori’) had been slightly more on the margins of the show and this was a real indication that they would be at the core of where this show was going which is true. And that gradually became the opinion too of Michael and Aaron who have had some amazing stuff today in Season 4. They’re really living this existential angst every second of every day of who are they and what are they responsible for and are their actions preordained in some way? Did they always have to make new decisions? Are their lives worth anything as a result? Are they traitors or are they heroes? And did their interpersonal relationships with the characters around them then become immediately imminently complex?”
