One of my favorite characters on the 're-imagined' Battlestar Galactica was Lt. Karl 'Helo' Agathon, played by the incredibly talented Tahmoh Penikett. For most of the first season 'Helo' and (in a complicated way) his flying partner Lt. Saron 'Boomer' Valerii were trapped on the occupied planet of Caprica.
We are pleased to announce that actor Tahmoh Penikett will be among the guests who will be appearing at this years ConnectiCon.
Of all the characters, 'Helo' was one who really drew me into the 'new' Galactica. I wanted so badly to hate it out of loyalty to the original series, but it was Helo's sacrifice played with emotion and power by Tahmoh that made me fall right into this version.
As the series progressed, it was Helo, along with Crewman Calley (played by Nicki Clyne also a guest at this years show) who changed and grew the most and I felt grew stronger as everyone else (and the show) limped into its final season.
So c'mon out and join Tahmoh, actress Nicki Clyne and Michael Trucco (Samuel T. Anders) who will be representing the colonies at the show.
AND...as we watch 'Eureka' as our Summer Watching project, we are also please to let you know that Fargo himself, Neil Grayston will also be there to meet the fans.
So go to www.connecticon.org to find out more and we hope to have interviews will these four for you to enjoy.
