Jamie Bamber: (on his casting for Battlestar Galactica ) I was doing an English series that I didn't like. My then girlfriend was pregnant and the future was a bit scary! I went to LA for two weeks and it was the first script my manger gave me to read. I cringed at the idea of the remake but the script knocked me sideways. Five auditions later, on the eve of my flight home I had the part. Best night of my life, almost!
