- Advertisement -



This past Sunday at the 2013 Montreal Comiccon, Sound On Sight got a chance to talk with Edward James Olmos. Known for his role as Admiral William Adama on the hit series Battlestar Galactica, Lieutenant Martin Castillo from Miami Vice, his role in Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner, a guest role on Dexter, not to mention a slew of other films, Olmos took the time to answer a few of our questions.


Sound On Sight: So you’ve been in Battlestar Galacitca, Miami Vice, Dexter… what draws you to your projects?

Edward James Olmos: Story. Story’s the most important aspect of what we do. Everybody in here (the convention) is a storyteller. Everybody that draws is a storyteller, so we’re all storytellers in here.

SoS: You played a theology professor, turned victim of your student on Dexter, so what was it like working on that show and do you have any hopes for this final season?

Olmos: I don’t know what’s going to happen to Dexter. I hope he meets his end.

SoS: Do you want to see him die or go to prison?

Olmos: It doesn’t matter, as long as he gets, you know, one of the two. And as far as working on it, it was a lot of work (…).

SoS: Now, Battlestar Galactica, huge fanbase, huge following even all these years later. What do you think keeps it relevant and makes people fall in love with it, and with the characters?

Olmos: The story.

SoS: It all comes back to that, hunh?

Olmos: Oh, it always has. I mean, you have nothing if you don’t have a good story.

SoS: And what would you say was your favorite bit about working on Battlestar Galactica?

Olmos: The people, the cast (…) we’re all very close and they’re good friends of mine. We really shared something that became very special to all of us and we don’t ever want to let it go. So over the last ten years we’ve become best friends.
