A brief excerpt:

David Hewlett, the actor behind the ever-irritating and indeed, irritated, Dr. Rodney McKay, is enjoying his first period of ‘down time’ since filming on Stargate Atlantis’ fifth season began. According to Hewlett, McKay is having quite a time of it this year – and he’s happy to tell us all about it.

“It’s been amazing,” he says, with obvious enthusiasm. “I’ve got my first break; there’s an episode, ‘Whispers’, where I just have a couple of cute little scenes with the lovely and talented Paul McGillion, so I’ve actually had a few days off. But it’s been amazing. The episode I’m most excited about so far is called ‘The Shrine,’ which we’ve just finished shooting. It’s Brad Wright’s triumphant return to writing scripts for Atlantis, and it’s just great. It’s a really meaty McKay episode, but the great thing about Brad is that he may write episodes that are kind of McKay-centered, but he’s so good at bringing in all the other characters as well. So it’s just a great ensemble piece where I get to do some acting,” he laughs. “I love running around shooting things and techno babble and all, but it’s just nice to go, ‘Wow, I actually have to act…’ I can’t just have fun I actually have to do some serious work!”
