Dragon*Con 2009: BSGcast: Matt talks with Lt. Dualla (Kandyse McClure)

Courtesy of the ever-awesome YourGeekNews/BSGcast:

First in our DragonCon interviews, Matt chatted with the beautiful and talented Kandyse McClure who played Anastasia Dualla for almost the entire run of the series… almost. So consider this your spoiler warning! From her thoughts on the growth of her character, to what she’s up to now, Kandyse gives us a great peek into what makes her, and Dee, tick!

~Matt + Nat

DONT WATCH THE ENDING KANDYSE!! It was awful after the first half!!! IMO, I mean Starbuck was an angel? What about the ship?? What a massive cop-out! They could’ve had another Cylon hub of some sort with resurrection tech on the planet Starbuck’s DNA drifted down to or something and her half Cylon DNA could have activated the Centurions who brought her back..and the Baltar followers suddenly willingly give up their guns and tech to go live off the land? Mmm nah. They could’ve done a great tie in with tech the Egyptians had or heck the Atlanteans had, and BSG explaining why…give me something to work with RD Moore!

Dragon*Con 2009: Diana Gabaldon on the appeal of a man in a kilt…

Yay Outlander series! We were lucky enough to meet Diana Gabaldon at a book signing several years ago, a lovely and incredibly talented person.

Diana on the upcoming graphic art release of a new Outlander story with some previews of the artwork and on meeting the real (and towering, lol) Scots of Clans MacKenzie and Fraser..

On the inspiration for the storyline-and the role an old episode of Dr Who played!

The latest in the INCREDIBLE series ‘An Echo in the Bone’ will be released September 22nd!

800+ pages of Gabaldon awesomeness available September 22nd!

800+ pages of Gabaldon awesomeness available September 22nd!

Amazon:

With stunning cameos of historical characters from Benedict Arnold to Benjamin Franklin, An Echo in the Bone is a soaring masterpiece of imagination, insight, character, and adventure–a novel that echoes in the mind long after the last page is turned.

Product Description
Diana Gabaldon’s brilliant storytelling has captivated millions of readers in her bestselling and award-winning Outlander saga. Now, in An Echo in the Bone, the enormously anticipated seventh volume, Gabaldon continues the extraordinary story of the eighteenth-century Scotsman Jamie Fraser and his twentieth-century time-traveling wife, Claire Randall.

Jamie Fraser, former Jacobite and reluctant rebel, is already certain of three things about the American rebellion: The Americans will win, fighting on the side of victory is no guarantee of survival, and he’d rather die than have to face his illegitimate son–a young lieutenant in the British army–across the barrel of a gun.

Claire Randall knows that the Americans will win, too, but not what the ultimate price may be. That price won’t include Jamie’s life or his happiness, though–not if she has anything to say about it.

Meanwhile, in the relative safety of the twentieth century, Jamie and Claire’s daughter, Brianna, and her husband, Roger MacKenzie, have resettled in a historic Scottish home where, across a chasm of two centuries, the unfolding drama of Brianna’s parents’ story comes to life through Claire’s letters. The fragile pages reveal Claire’s love for battle-scarred Jamie Fraser and their flight from North Carolina to the high seas, where they encounter privateers and ocean battles–as Brianna and Roger search for clues not only to Claire’s fate but to their own. Because the future of the MacKenzie family in the Highlands is mysteriously, irrevocably, and intimately entwined with life and death in war-torn colonial America.
