Getting to Know... Aaron Douglas

Aaron Douglas has gone from relative obscurity to TV fame in a matter of years, a feat that isn't repeated very often by Canadian actors. Starting with 'Battlestar Galactica', Douglas became a household name for nerds and sci-fi fanatics alike. Now he's playing a union leader in 'The Bridge', which isn't too big a stretch, considering he played a union leader on 'BSG' for almost three years.

Aaron Douglas Takes on 'The Bridge'

Last time we saw Aaron Douglas, he was walking off into the unknown as Chief Tyrol on 'Battlestar Galactica'. We may have thought that the Canadian actor disappeared, but he's been working – a lot, by the sounds of it – on 'The Bridge', where he plays cop-turned-union-leader Frank Leo.

Just in case you haven't seen the promotional ad (which was played mercilessly throughout the 2010 Olympics), 'The Bridge' follows a young, troubled cop who grows more and more disillusioned with the corrupt police force. As he tries to right the wrongs going on around him, Leo becomes enmeshed in the complications of power. Executive-produced by Craig Bromell (who served as president of the Metro Toronto Police Association from 1997-2003), and set on the streets of Toronto, 'The Bridge' is a raw look behind the Blue Curtain.

TV Squad talked with Douglas about what it's like to play a police officer, how it feels to drive a hot car (really fast), and if he misses 'Battlestar' at all.
