SAME ACTORS, DIFFERENT CHARACTERS!


Contributed By Matthew Wharmby

Few people realize just how many actors were recycled in different roles between Battlestar Galactica and Galactica 1980. This special section was written by Matthew Wharmby (whose Galactica 1980 episode reviews are a hoot!) although he would like to make it known that he picked up the info from somewhere else. This list is certain to raise a few eyebrows. For example, I had no idea that Murray Matheson (who played Councilman Geller in Greetings From Earth) provided the voice of Spectre. It's a great list, so enjoy!
