|Jane Seymour GALACTICA.TV interview|
|Written by Mike Egnor|
|Saturday, 05 May 2007|
On April 28, 2006, Mike Egnor drove four hours to Cincinnati in hopes of meeting Jane Seymour. She was appearing at the first annual “Go Red for Women” luncheon sponsored by Mercy Hospital Fairfield at the North Marriott Hotel. Mike caught up with her afterwards for some autographs, and also got a chance to ask a couple of questions about her role as Serina on the Battlestar Galactica 1978 series.
The “Go Red for Women” charity event raises money for women-specific heart and stroke research, and women-specific educational programs. Her appearance helped raise $115,000 for the charity. The highlight of her luncheon speech was talking about dealing with and overcoming the heart problems she had during her pregnancy with twins.
Though Mike Egnor only met her shortly during the signing that she did after the lecture, he still managed to ask her these Battlestar Galactica questions:

How did you get the role of Serina on Battlestar Galactica?
They offered it to me, Glen Larson offered it to me.
I know you wanted to leave the show early...
No, no, no. I was never meant to be in the show, I was only supposed to be in the pilot. And I died in the pilot. But then they reshot the whole thing without telling me and then they wanted me to stay for the whole show, because I tested higher than the other girls that they'd hired to be regulars. And I didn't want to do a series at the time, so I said I'd do...I think I did another two hours, a two hour special.
Was it something they had to talk you into doing? Or is it something you wanted to do?
Oh no, I was happy to do that. I just didn't see myself doing it as a series, because I wasn't doing series at that time. So that's why I did that.
