Buddytv Talks With Battlestar Galactica?s Grace Park

Buddytv Talks With Battlestar Galactica?s Grace Park

Schizophrenia seems to be a hot topic in American television these days, and although the disorder is no laughing matter, some of the networks have struck gold by creating characters who possess multiple alter egos.

Take the popular Sci-Fi show, Battlestar Galactica, for one. The show features a character named Sharon Valerii, played by Korean actress, Grace Park. Lieutenant Junior Grade Sharon is not just a beautiful and schizophrenic Cylon, but a beautiful and schizophrenic robot Cylon at that. As if it weren’t hard enough to pull off a character with layers of other characters within her, Park must also be able to engage in the ever-changing emotional state of a schizophrenic individual, while, of course, keeping in mind that the character is a machine. How does she do it?

Maybe it helps that Park holds a degree in psychology from the University of British Columbia. Perhaps Park’s educational background somehow allows her to convincingly manifest Sharon’s complex alter egos who, by the way, go by the names of Boomer and Athena. All three personalities display different strengths and weaknesses, with Athena being the most physically active, Sharon being the most emotionally torn, and Boomer being the most defiant and enraged.

It must be so exhausting to have to bring to life such multifaceted characters in Battlestar Galactica, but Park claims to experience a sense of release, especially when she is doing scenes as Athena. Park says that a character like Athena, who spends most of her time on her feet dodging enemies and having little energy to deal with her feelings, gives Park the opportunity to breathe and take a break from riding the giant emotional rollercoaster she calls her life.

Once again, the world of the fantastic provides a temporary window of stability, even if it is just through a schizophrenic robot from the future on a sci-fi television series called Battlestar Galactica. But while the chance to portray a unique character proves cathartic for Park, the viewing public has certainly seen it as a tremendous source of entertainment, hence the continuing success of the show.

Possible Battlestar Galactica Season 4 Split Rooted in Money

Possible Battlestar Galactica Season 4 Split Rooted in Money

Previous reports discussed some problems that the Sci-Fi Channel is currently facing in line with Battlestar Galactica. They are currently deciding whether the show should be divided into two ten-episode chunks for its final season. One executive commented that the decision is taking a lot of time due to “the money people.”

Apparently, a huge chunk of the network’s programming budget is allotted for Battlestar Galactica, thus they are forced to consider the split up of its final edition into two seasons. Executive producer Ron Moore has a few things to say about this.

“It doesn’t affect my job either way, since we’re shooting it straight through,” Moore explained. “It might be better to get it all done [in the same year] for the fans so they don’t have to wait.”

A source close to the project agrees with Moore’s idea of airing Battlestar Galactica’s last season in the same year. The source is quoted, saying that “when people see the ending of the 10th episode, they’re gonna freak out.” If the network decides for the split, then fans would again be left on a cliffhanger, only to wait for another year for the conclusion of the show. Viewers are already eager to see the two-hour made-for-TV stand-alone film, Razor.

The network aims to reach a decision by January, along with which shows will be good accompaniments to Battlestar Galactica, and how much these shows will costs. These factors are critical to the show and the network’s success as well.

One of those in consideration is the Caprica spin-off series, which executives believe may help retain and expand the loyal Battlestar Galactica fan base. They are also considering a two-hour pilot such as Razor. If and when the pilot does not do well, it may be subsequently sold as a DVD to make up for the loss. If it soars, however, the network will have a new series on air.

Moore is currently working on another sci-fi production, which will be a “companion piece” to John Carpenter’s 1982 film The Thing, produced by Universal.
