Jamie Bamber, who plays Apollo on the Emmy award-winning Battlestar Galactica re-imagining, told SciFiNow that there will not be any more instalments in the show’s universe after the next feature length release.
“I just don’t think that’s going to happen,” the 35-year-old actor told the magazine while in London today. “I know the sets have all been torn down, and I think it’s really over.” Battlestar will conclude its run as a television series at the end of its fourth season, the second half of which is set to air from January. The central question of the fifth and final Cylon’s identity is still raging in anticipation of the new year, but Bamber was tightlipped when asked whether he was happy that his character wasn’t picked to be a machine originally. “Uh… how do you know I’m not?” The actor responded wryly, before quickly adding. “No no, I can’t comment about that.”
So what do you think, readers? Was Bamber being diplomatic, or was it a telling slip of the tongue? Either way, the excitement over the conclusion to the series is reaching fever pitch, but what can we expect from the second half?
“A fantastic ending,” Bamber said simply. “Our show’s always been a saga, a real saga about a journey. And every journey needs the final chapter, and the final destination, and the conclusion. And it does deliver on every count.”
