  • Quotes

    • Paul Campbell: It's pretty random. If there were specific mention of a dead civilian….no one was really keeping track of pilots in the big Cylon attacks. No one was keeping track of those as far as I know. There were never any big conversations or no one lost any sleep over that number. But when there were say 3747 people dead and it was mentioned, we would keep track of that and calculate, but in general it was pretty random. It was an approximation.

    • Paul Campbell: It was kind of my choice in a way. I was kind of given an ultimatum eventually because in between the end of season one and the beginning of season two I had actually gone to LA and booked a pilot. Because Battlestar production didn't have me under contract, I was free to go and do that. And it was their loss if the show got picked up and I wasn't able to come back for season two. I think that was a problem they had with a few of the cast members, that everyone was a free agent after season 1, and I think that scared them a little bit. They could have potentially lost half their cast after season 1, and I think after that, they pretty much ended up signing everyone to a contract. But I'd already been cast in another show and decided to go off on my own and see if it worked. As it turned out it didn't work, and I ended up having a two episode hiatus after episode 4. I was gone for 5 and 6, then came back for Home Pt. 1, I think it was. Or Home Pt 2, I came back for. So after that kind of gave me the ultimatum and said sign a contract for 5 years, or we kind of need to go our separate ways. And I kind of put it off and put it off, then eventually they just said "Look, we can tell your not really committed to the show, and we can't write story lines. So we've decided to kill the character. It wasn't really a surprise, but I wasn't expecting it to happen when it did. But I certainly wasn't surprised that they had to do that.

    • Paul Campbell: For the skeptics and the naysayers, don't knock it till you've tried it, and for those like me who can't wait to see it, I know for a fact that you are all going to be blown away.

    • Paul Campbell: I wrote a love song once. The song involves a number of comparisons to the beauty of this person's dove-like voice. The first line is "When I hear your voice, I just want to scream / It's like running my face through a sewing machine ..." (You get the idea.)
