TV Guide Online
have posted a new interview (written by Ethan Alter) with Ben Browder (Crichton) discussing the upcoming mini-series The Peacekeeper Wars
, set to air October 17 & 18 at 9pm on Sci Fi in the US.
Of returning to the set for the first day of shooting the mini-series, he says, "I got tears in my eyes walking back onto the set. To walk back onto Moya [the living leviathin which housed Crichton and his band of interstellar fugitives] was like seeing an old friend you never thought you'd see again. There were minor differences [in the set], but for the most part, it was like a time warp. A year and a half had passed since they had dismantled it, and there it was again. It actually leads you to believe that you could go back to high school if you really thought about it — and had a really good set designer."
Regarding Crichton's state of mind, he says, "The big question is: Where is Crichton going to end up? Is he mentally, physically and emotionally prepared to survive his journey, and how many people are going to die in the process? People change and do things in the course of hard times that they would not normally do. Had Crichton never entered that wormhole, he would have just been a regular astronaut. Now the stakes have been raised one more time."
While he remains naturally tight-lipped about plot-points, he does talk about some of his future projects and more in the full article. Head on over to TV Guide Online
