Sci Fi Wire just published an interview with Lucy Lawless (a.k.a. Xena) about her upcoming role on Galactica:
Lawless guest-stars in “Final Cut,” the eighth episode of Galactica’s current second season, written by Mark Verheiden and directed by Robert Young. In the episode, Lawless plays reporter D’Anna Friel, who gets unlimited access to film aboard Galactica and documents the stress of military life during wartime. The marines, led by Lt. Palladino (Jeremy Guilbaut), get widely criticized when his crew opens fire on civilian protesters, killing four and wounding 12. Then there’s a death threat against Col. Tigh (Michael Hogan). Meanwhile, President Roslin (Mary McDonnell) and Cmdr. Adama (Edward James Olmos) offer Fleet News Service full access to the pilots and crew. Along the way, the reporter uncovers some major secrets and faces an ethical dilemma.
