Talking about the abrupt end to shooting last fall, Moore says, “We were starting to get wistful and feeling senior year-itis, as we approached the midseason point. Then the strike swamped everything else.
“If you talk to the cast and the crew, they went through a lot of emotions when they were shooting the last episode that we shot. They were feeling like they were saying goodbye to the show.”
“I was trying to be the complete optimist,” Sackhoff says. “I had to counteract Aaron Douglas, who was a pessimist. He’s sending all these e-mails, ‘We’re never going to see each other again.’ So I was like, ‘This is crap. We’re coming back.’
“So I was trying to keep the crew and the rest of the cast motivated. ‘It’s OK, guys, it’ll just be a while.’ Of course, I was like, ‘It’ll be a week. No problem.’ Yeah, well, I was wrong about how long it would last, but I knew we’d be back.”
