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.”

Q: I re­mem­ber read­ing that “13 Rea­sons Why” was com­ing back for an­other sea­son. Is that true, and if so, when? -- Nyla F., via Twit­ter

A: Sea­son two of “13 Rea­sons Why” drops May 18 on Net­flix, and ac­cord­ing to the an­nounce­ment: “The tapes are just the begin­ning.” Net­flix’s re­lease state­ment re­vealed that this sea­son “picks up in the af­ter­math of Han­nah’s death and the start of our char­ac­ters’ com­pli­cated jour­neys to­ward heal­ing and re­cov­ery. Lib­erty High pre­pares to go on trial, but some­one will stop at noth­ing to keep the truth sur­round­ing Han­nah’s death con­cealed. ... A series of omi­nous Po­laroids leads Clay and his class­mates to un­cover a sick­en­ing se­cret and a con­spir­acy to cover it up.”

Q: I’m lov­ing this new and up­dated ver­sion of “Roseanne.” Can you tell me if it will be back for an­other sea­son? -- Paul R., via email

A: This re­vival ain’t no one-and-done for the Con­ner fam­ily. Roseanne and Dan’s clan will be back for an­other sea­son of 13 episodes. As of this writ­ing, it has not been an­nounced if it will premiere in fall or spring.
