What Is The Cast Of Battlestar Galactica Up To Now?

Published

on

It has been ten years since Battlestar Galactica left our screens. Despite its rocky finale, it is still regarded as one of the best modern sci-fi shows ever made. From its fantastically written characters to its intricately woven plot, to its biting social commentary, the effects of Battlestar Galactica are still being felt in the TV industry. But just how are the actors that once played these iconic characters doing?

Aaron Douglas

Chief Tyrol was an interesting, multifaceted character with an intriguing twist at the end of season three of Battlestar Galactica. Aaron Douglas played him with such skill and reliability that it’s hard not to love the guy. Aaron has gone on to guest star in many popular programs including the revival of The X-Files. His two biggest roles since Battlestar Galactica is as the unhinged but quirky villain in Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency‘s first season and as one of the stars of Netflix’s Hemlock Grove. The actress that played Tyrol’s love interest has had a very different experience.

Grace Park

By the end of the mini-series that opened the reimaging of Battlestar Galactica, Grace Park was playing many different copies of the same character. It’s a testament to her acting ability that she managed to imbue them each with their own personality and mannerisms. The year after Battlestar Galactica went off the air, Grace signed on to be a main character on the reimaging of Hawaii Five-O. She stayed on the show for seven years before moving on to star in A Million Little Things. Next is an actor who was very well known before he starred in the show.

Edward James Olmos

William Adama is the lifeblood of the Battlestar Galactica, the stoic father figure. Edward James Olmos was a pre-established name before and became possible even more revered while playing Adama. His acting was so amazingly nuanced that other actors felt intimidated while in his presence. After Battlestar Galactica, Edward found recurring roles in the popular TV shows Dexter and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Perhaps the most surprising thing he has done since reprised his thirty-five-year-old role of Gaff in Blade Runner 2049. We move on to the actress the played perhaps the most iconic role.

Tricia Helfer

From the get-go Six was many different characters all at the same time. Tricia Helfer was able to keep it all straight and deliver perfect performance one after the other. Tricia has gone on to do a lot of voice work, most notable in the Starcraft and Mass Effect franchises. She has also gained a vital role in the now Netflix owned TV show, Lucifer. Most recently, she has started a podcast in which she discusses the behind the scenes stuff in every episode of Battlestar Galactica. Finally, we move on the actress the is a personal friend of Helfer and played the fan-favorite character.

Katee Sackhoff

Starbuck made both the original and reimagined Battlestar Galactica what it is. Katte Sackhoff managed to pull off the new gender-bent version of the character perfectly, with her performances being one of the highlights of every episode. Katee has gone on to get a reoccurring role in 24 and the Star Wars animated TV shows. Most recently, she has played on of the main characters of Longmire and played a DC comics villain in The Flash. A few weeks ago she even guest appeared on Tricia Helfer’s podcast, Battlestar Galacticast.
