Exclusive Interview: Caprica’s Magda Apanowicz

Battlestar Galactica‘s prequel, Caprica is back for the remainder of it’s first season and I couldn’t be more excited! Last week at the VIFF Red Carpet, I had the chance to catch up with my pal, Magda Apanowicz about her role as Lucy Rand in the hit series, as well as some of the other things she’s working on. Magda, known for her role in Kyle XY and most recently her role in Caprica also recently scored a part in the CW’s Hellcats and has been rehearsing her butt off prepping for filming the episode she’s in (which is actually happening today). Magda, with whom I studied acting with at Vancouver Film School, is 24 years old and now lives in LA.

Caprica’s Season 1.5 is premiering tomorrow (October 5th, at 10:00 p.m), and is going to get a lot more cylon action says executive producer David Eick. “Daniel Graystone’s creation—the early-model Cylon known as the U-87—emerges as a critical story point,” says Eick. Caprica takes place some 58 years earlier than Battlestar. Caprica shows how humans first created the robotic Cylons who later plot to destroy humans in retaliation for their enslavement. A must see series.

Magda moves from Cylon to Cyclone as a member of the Cyclones in the Hellcats series. She plays on Ashley Tisdale’s rival team, and is a little of a..well, biotch. Can’t wait to see the episode when it airs!
