Fans of the cult sci-fi classic, Battlestar Galactica, have probably been climbing walls being without their favorite show for so long. Cyberspace is abuzz anew with the coming release of the special two-hour Battlestar Galactica: Razor movie on November 24.
While we all continue to await word on the exact premiere of the franchise’s fourth and final season next year, we have some important tidbits and clarifications about the fate of one of its lead characters.
According to SyFy Portal, Terry Moore, wife of Battlestar Galactica executive producer, Ronald D. Moore, has denied rumors that Mary McDonnell’s character, terminally ill former president Laura Roslin, will exit the series halfway through the coming last season. Terry Moore is a regular poster over at the SciFi Channel message boards and she promptly clarified the issue after speculations came out regarding McDonnell’s premature demise on the program.
McDonnell had reportedly confided to a group of students who had spent time with her at a Massachusetts university last weekend that her Battlestar Galactica alter ego may be gone from the show as early as the middle of the much-anticipated fourth and final season.
“Mary told us that she only has three episodes left to film for BSG and is sad to say good-bye to Laura,” a student who attended the gathering told SyFy Portal earlier this week.
For her part, Ronald D. Moore’s wife immediately relayed the news to her husband.
“I just told Ron what this spoiler was, and he said the Laura spoiler is ‘not true,'” Terry Moore assured. “He also said that he hasn’t even told the studio what the end of the show is.”
Still according to Terry Moore, her husband has just finished the 13th episode of Battlestar Galactica‘s concluding season. This leaves him with six more episodes to pen before the writers’ strike gets underway as scheduled on November 1st.
