Jamie Bamber at Comic Con
I'll update this post as the day goes on, but I figured I'd go ahead and post the information that is starting to trickle in. In addition to promoting Pulse 2: Afterlife, Jamie did attend the Battlestar Galactica panel this afternoon. It doesn't seem that any spoilers were discussed during the panel so assume all reports are safe.

The Futon Critic's recap.

io9's even better recap. My favorite part of the recap:
Jamie Bamber admitted that Apollo had taken on the traditionally female role in the series, and kept having to be rescued by Starbuck, to which Sackhoff told him that it was okay; he should just sit there and look pretty instead of worrying.

io9 also has a brief interview with David Eick and several of the cast members. About Jamie's involvement in a possible BSG movie:
Lee Adama actor Jamie Bamber says it's "highly unlikely" that he would be in the TV movie, now that he's starring in Law And Order: UK. "I don't think the story is intended to be a Lee story anyway, from what i know." He wouldn't mind going back and reprising the role of Lee, but he feels like the show has ended well and he won't lose any sleep if he never plays Apollo again.

The Zap2It Recap. This includes a pretty detailed description of the 4.5 promo shown so beware of spoilers.

Entertainment Weekly - nothing that isn't in the other recaps. Again, they discuss parts of the promo.

TV Verdict will be posting their interview with Jamie tomorrow, however the interviewer posted some comments about the interview to Twitter:
The full interview including a post mortem on BSG and a compelling new TV project that will take him back to London will be posted Sunday. about 7 hours ago

And explores the impact on a man and his family trying survive in this tech-twisted world. about 7 hours ago

Jamie's new film Pulse: Afterlife picks up the themes laid out by Kyoshi Kurasawa's Pulse (not the American version). about 7 hours ago

Just finished interviewing Jamie Bamber. about 7 hours ago

Over on the SciFi forum, Scarbuck was able to snap a photo of Jamie at the Genius Products booth. The photo can be found on page 4 of the Comic Con thread. In that same thread proggrrl reports on a text message she received about a bit of Season 4.5 footage shown before the BSG panel. It is a bit spoilery, but she whites out the text so don't fear being accidentally spoiled.

Hey, thanks for the links! I was thrilled when I read Jamie joined the panel!

Holy crap, I wrote a *paper* on that, about...geez, three years ago, about fairy-tale archetypes and how Apollo was the princess and Starback was the questing knight seeking the king's approval. Go me!

Woo! And where is this paper? I think you should share. :)

Oh, geez, I don't know if I have it anymore. I'll look around, though. :)

That's not actually what was said. If memory serves Katee was talking about how Starbuck never has to be saved, and then she gestured to Jamie and Michael Trucco and said "I think I've saved both of them, actually," and then added, "That's okay, they can just sit there and look pretty." I don't remember the line about Apollo being female, but I was sitting in the back and Jamie was doing a lot of mumbling and not speaking directly into the microphone. ;P

It's still funny either way. ;)

I've been collecting links to reports this morning to do a post later, and I couple of people have commented that Jamie seemed cranky at the BSG panel. Maybe he was sleep deprived.

i read some of the 'cranky bambi' comments, too and he really does look tired in most of the pictures. poor jamie!

It's possible he flew in that morning or drove down and I've read that traffic was particularly horrible this year. It reminds me a bit of Dragon Con last year. He was pretty quite during the first panel on Friday and did seem a wee bit cranky when I spoke to him that day. ;)

aaaw, poor jamie!
understandably that he gets tired and cranky especially with the schedule he already had this year. put me through all that stress for only one weekend and you'd have a cranky, pouting falcy that throws a tantrum whenever someone shoves a flash light her way.
i really admire jamie for going through all that and still being nice and kind to his fans!
dianora2 From: dianora2 Date: July 28th, 2008 07:27 pm (UTC) (Link Me)
He definitely looked tired. I felt like he just wasn't in the right head space that day, you know? Which when faced with something like Comic Con can be pretty overwhelming.

After reading an Interview with Katee today I learned that in the final weeks of filming it was the norm to work until 3 or 4am. He barely got a break from that before having to go to Comic Con and he's dealing with the stress of having to relocate his family to England and start a new job next month. Can we blame him for being tired and a little cranky? I think not.
