Q: I was watching “Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome,” and I really liked the female lead. Can you tell me a bit about her and what else I can catch
her in? -- Jeff T., via email A: Lili Bordan, daughter of legendary Hungarian film actress Iren Bordan, played Dr. Becca Kelly in that “BSG” movie. When I spoke with her recently, she told me what an important role it was for her.
“That was pretty meaty. It was the female lead of that episode,” Lili said. “It was originally made to be a pilot for a prequel series, but it didn’t get picked up. It ended up airing as a TV movie on Syfy and came out on Blu-ray a few months later. That was a really important role for me in my career. It was one of those roles where my character is an integral part of the story and really does drive the story forward -- and it’s all because of this secret she has.”
Next up for Lili is playing a pivotal role in “Book Club,” which stars Diane Keaton, Jane Fonda, Candice Bergen and Mary Steenburgen, and comes out on the big screen May 17. Of the movie, Lili told me: “It’s about how a book can change your life. And it’s about intimacy and love at any age. My scene is with Mary Steenburgen and Craig T. Nelson. When you get to work with people like them, and also share a movie with some of your idols like Diane Keaton and Jane Fonda -- whom I both love and I think are such different types of artists -- it’s such an honor, and I’m just super excited to have been part of it.”
