SCIFI Wire: Battlestar Stars Remember Their Favorite Moments
The reminiscing of Battlestar Galactica has begun as the show winds down with its final episodes.
One of the more interesting stories to me is from Michael Hogan, Colonel Tigh about Edward James Olmos’s spontaneous creation of one of the show’s signature moments.
“Adama finishes this speech and then says, ‘So say we all,’ and I guess we sort of mumbled, ‘So say we all.’ Eddie [Olmos] kind of looked at all of us and said it again, ‘So say we all.’ Well, we weren’t ready for that, so we said, ‘So say we all.’ And he looked at us and said, ‘SO SAY WE ALL.’ And he got us all going, and it was a chilling, chilling time. It was like, ‘Whoa,’ and by the end of it the whole room, the hundreds of us, are just yelling, “SO SAY WE ALL!” And that wasn’t in the script. When that was over you were kind of, ‘Whoa boy, we’re in for a ride now,’ because Eddie just kind of looked at people and said, ‘Come on. Let’s go. Let’s get on board here. …’ Eddie definitely did take a leadership role right from day one and continued all the way through to the end.”
