So yeah, it's a James Callis interview at Rai.tv! And it's DUBBED IN ITALIAN so you can't really hear what he's saying.
Things you can learn from this interview:
-he has a red phone. (I'm not sure why this surprises me. I guess I just hadn't thought of his phone colors.)
-he keeps his phone in his left chest pocket.
-he wears a tie with a flannel shirt, which is confusing. (This would have been my first question in the interview: what's up with that tie? Is this a British thing?)
-he looks quite... sexy. Very sexy.
-lots of cute faces and hand gestures.
Seriously speaking, I do get some of what he says. He says about the finale: "We didn't tie all the knots but we tied all we could" and "I think it was a brilliant ending". (After all this time, I'm inclined to agree. It wasn't perfect in every way and it didn't tie it all up but... it was pretty damn good.) I think he also says "I have no idea how I would have written the finale", which fair enough, it was a tall order for Ron.
Also, Battlestar Galactica was a political show and "it was absolutely meant to be that way".
Amusingly, he says "every. single. level" at least once.
Eureka was a lot of fun because he got to play a guy in the past who looked at a phone and said: "Wow, that's brilliant, it's so SMALL!"
I probably won't listen umpteen times to try to make sense of it, but it's cute nonetheless.
I do hope, though, that some day they won't intercut an interview with a million clips from the shows, including some that don't even have James in them. We don't need a recap of the entire BSG to get what he's saying. (And the clips are also very disturbingly dubbed. I hate dubbing.) (Oh, aren't I the grinch today. I think I'm in a bad mood because I have to take my cat to the vet, and he already detected the hated box and plans to make a run for it. Let's take another look at cutesy ch..exy James. (Chexy! That's good.)
