Razor's Jacobsen Praises Boldness

The latest from the SciFi Wire:

Razor's Jacobsen Praises Boldness
Stephanie Jacobsen—who plays the central character, Kendra Shaw, in the upcoming Battlestar Galactica prequel telefilm Razor—told reporters that it was a gutsy move to introduce a previously unseen, never-mentioned figure into the mix.
"I think that the introduction of Kendra was really, I guess, an act of boldness and an act of ingenuity," the Australian actress said in a conference call last week. She added: "[To] throw someone into the mix who's never been alluded to or otherwise seen ... so many years into an established series is a very, very courageous thing to do."
Razor follows Lee Adama (Jamie Bamber) as he assumes command of the battlestar Pegasus and
also recalls events of nearly a year before, on the eve of the Cylon attack, events involving then-Pegasus commander Admiral Cain (Michelle Forbes) and her ambitious, conflicted protege, Shaw.
"What I think it did was enable this entirely new, untainted, alternative perspective of situations, people and events ... that had already been told," Jacobsen said. "So I think, in a sense, that sort of risk and that sort of [boldness] was to a large extent the point."
Battlestar Galactica: Razor will premiere on Nov. 24 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. The upcoming fourth and final season of the show is slated to kick off in early 2008. SCI FI, meanwhile, announced that Razor will screen threatrically in special preview screenings in select movie theaters on Nov. 12.
