    Questions for Amanda Tapping:

    I love The Big Bang Theory and they have had many cameos from well-known Sci Fi actors. What better fit for a show about geeky physicists than the actress who brought us the ultimate gorgeous geeky physicist Sam Carter! How would you feel about making a guest appearance on The Big Bang Theory, or better yet starring in a comedy of your own? And if you're familiar with the series, how do you think Sam would get along with Sheldon?

    I miss your blond hair. When you are done with Sanctuary, do you think you will return to being a blond?

    Question for Torri Higginson:

    Hi Torri....there was so much fun energy between you and "Duckie' aka David McCallum on NCIS - has there been any talk (opportunities) about you making any more appearances on NCIS? I love that show and would love to see more of you in it!

    This question is for Mike Dopud

    At Gatecon a few years ago (at one of Arctic Goddess's fan parties) you mentioned that if SGA had not been cancelled, there was discussion that Kiryk could potentiallly have made another appearance on SGA.

    Where would you like to have seen the direction of the character to go, assuming that tptb determine Kiryk survived the Wraith? Should he keep being a runner? At some point just give up and let the Wraith win? Or have Keller find a way to remove the device like they did with Ronon?

    Amanda Tapping (Col. Samantha Carter)
    I really liked how your character was promoted to full Colonel and given command of Atlantis. After Woolsey took over, it was fuzzy as to where Carter ended up. In the finale, we see your character back at the SGC with plans to take command of the George Hammond. My question is, what do you imagine your character was up to during Atlantis's fifth season?

    Christopher Judge (Teal'c)
    Your final appearance as "Teal'c" was in the Atlantis episode "Midway." Your character wore his Jaffa robes with longer hair. With the Goa'uld, Replicators, Ori, and finally Ba'al defeated, it left me with the impression that your character had finally gone home. However, the Atlantis writers shifted the movie Continuum to take place after this episode. In the movie, Teal'c appears to be part of SG-1. This leaves confusion on my part. Do you think of Teal'c as still part of SG-1, or do you imagine he'd returned to his people?

    Joe Flanigan (Col. John Sheppard)
    Did everyone know at the time that "Enemy at the Gate" was going to be the series finale, or was the show cancelled after the episode was filmed?

    Torri Higginson (Dr. Elizabeth Weir)
    As I understand it, you were disappointed in being reduced to a recurring role on Atlantis, but seemed to like the new direction. I am under the impression that it was simply the script for "Ghost in the Machine" that you disliked. Had the show continued and a better script came along, would you have wanted to return to the show?

    Paul McGillion (Dr. Carson Beckett)
    It must have been horrible to have your character killed off, but this happens in television sometimes. What did you think about coming back as a clone? Did you have any questions for the writers as to how your character was cloned?

    Robert Picardo (Richard Woolsey)
    In the series finale, Atlantis returned to Earth. Assuming the city remained, would you imagine that your character would stay in command?

    This is for David Nykl:

    Question #1: From what I understand you speak pretty fair French. At what age did you learn to speak French?

    Growing up bilingual - (Czech and English) as a child was it confusing to talk two different languages (did English words get transposed as Czech and vice a versa - as I have met a lot of adults that learned another language as adults that do transpose words) or did you (does the child's brain) just instinctively keep them separate?

    Queston #2: There is another David Nykl who lives in British Columbia who has also made a bit of a name for himself though in sports. Have you two ever met? Do people get you two confused especially with all the social media out there.

    Question #3: The first episode we saw Zelenka was in 38 minutes. Zelenka's hair was perfectly in place. Virtually every episode after that, Zelenka's hair was a bit..well a bit of a crazy mess... Whose idea was it to go with the unkempt hair style, yours or someone else's? By the way..it was a great character choice!

    This is a question for Jewel Staite:

    After experiencing first hand how passionate Sci-fi fans can be from your experiences with FireFly...were you prepared for how strong the backlash from the fandom was with Keller taking over as Chief Medical officer after Carson's untimely demise? How did you emotionally prep yourself for the situation?

    Feel free to elaborate if you want.

    And btw I think you handle the situation with a lot of grace and dignity.

    This question is for Kavan Smith:

    What is the longest that they made you hold the Eureka Deputy Andy smile? Did they ever try to torture to see how long you could keep the smile up?

    This post will be edited as more questions are asked.

    David Hewlett: I'm bring forth a matter relating to the Stargate fandom at large. There has never been a proper Stargate game and few have come close but barely any have ever matched the potential a Stargate game can bring. So I'm asking you, for all of the Stargate fans out there; have you heard of StarCry, will you be willing to play it and if you like it, will you be willing to spread it around the Internets? It'd be a shame if a detailed Stargate game like this went unnoticed, the people who made it deserve to have recognition for their hard work.

    Martin Wood: People have noticed a gradual change in Stargate around the time of it's 6th season; with the shows becoming more comedy based rather then the serious tone of previous episodes. I have to ask, was this change eventual; was it destined to go the lighter route as the fall of the Gou'ald became evident? Additionally, was there something more you could of done with Atlantis? (Many people do complain about missed oppertunities when it came to the Ancients), did you have any regrets about the Ori plot and was SGU a necessitated series when it came to the franchise as a whole?

    Christopher Judge: Your role of Teal'c is one of the best alien roles sci-fi has ever provided; but despite that you haven't seemed to get much work outside of video game roles, some cameo appearances and "House Party 2" and "The Fresh Prince of Bel Air". I'm asking, how much did you get invested in the Teal'c role and did you try to use that to further your acting career? On an unrelated note, you with your family proved to be the sweetest moments of the show; how would you think it would work out if there were more scenes with you and your on-air family?

    Neil Denis: Alot of your role has been defined by your closeness to Teal'c ("Christopher Judge") and it's certainly provided alot of memorable scenes throughout the series run but I have to ask out of curiosity; did you feel like your role could of worked without the closeness to Teal'c?

    Torri Higginson: Your role as Dr. Weir made Atlantis something but as soon as you left it became a different show... I have to ask; watching casually, did you ever come to notice a difference when you left the show? And did you personally feel like your character was an essential part of the show?

    Amanda Tapping: Your roles as Amanda Tapping on Stargate, Helen Magnus on Scantuary and Valentina and Space Milkshake are both legendary and well known; you are an inescapable presence in the genre sci-fi. I have to ask you; do you have any advice for anybody willing to break into any aspect of the businesses, writing, producing, directing, acting. These types of businesses seem like the most difficult ones to enter due to you having to be in the right place and the right time and only the most lucky ones get to rise to prominence, so any hints for aspiring people like me?

    Garry Chalk: While it's known that the Russians and the US are bitter rivals, we barely get to see any of that in the show itself. I have to ask you, during the times that you were on the air, did you draw from any Russians of the past for your performance, did you think your performance would be convincing if you did it in front of a Russian and did you want to do more with your character then what the producers had for you.

    Tom McBeath: Your spirodic appearances as Mayborne was one of the enjoyable aspects of SG-1; just wondering what you've been through every time we see you. I have to ask, were there aspects of your character you came up on the spot, was your character always intended to be a king, did your character ultimately play a part in the NID plot the writers of the show set up and lastly, how many members do you have in your fan club and can I be a part of it?

    @ Staff, what do the numbers in brackets by the actors' names mean? Sorry if it's listed somewhere already.

    Questions:

    For Rachel Luttrell

    Lots of people, including myself, saw your character as somewhat wallpapered during a lot of the series. Do you think that this was the case? Are there any things that you would have liked to have seen your character do, or her people? Where do you think things would have gone for Teyla had the show gone on? She was such an amazing character! I wish more had been done with her. You were just amazing as Teyla!!! Thank you.

    For David Hewlett

    So when is StarCrossed ever going to see the light of day? I think it's a wonderful concept for a show, and your comedic skills should land you a spot on on the air for sure. If the show gets made, are Paul and Rachel still going to be a part of it? The small skit they had in A Dog's Breakfast was great. I hope they get to do that show with you. Thanks for your time.

    For Paul McGillion

    It was great to see you get a cameo in the last Star Trek movie. Do you think your character might get to return at all? Can you say if you will have a part in the next film? I loved Dr. Beckett, and thank you for doing such a great job at playing him!

    For Joe Flanigan

    How do you feel about the progression of your character from the beginning of the series to the end? Are there any things you would have liked to have seen your character do that he didn't do. Anything you would have liked to have learned or for the audience to have learned that we didn't? I will always love John and his team. John always looked out for his team, and it's been said that you did this for your cast mates too. Was the team aspect of the show really important to you, and why? Thank you.

    Those are my questions. Thanks.

    Joe Flannigan

    Is John Sheppard the charecter you play similar to how you are in real life? Would you classify your friendship with Jason Momoa as kinda similar to the John/Ronon relationship? Of all the women that John Sheppard has met who would you want him to end up with? If given the oppurtunity would you like to see your charecter given control of Stargate Command?


    David Hewlett

    What do you think of Rodney Mckay's egotistical side and how could he further improve on it? If Rodney Mckay and Jennifer Keller got married who would Mckay have as best man?


    Amanda Tapping,

    If you were offered the choice between command of the SGC and Atlantis which one would you choose? Also are there any chances that if they get the SGA movies up and running that you will make a guest appearance in it?
    1 “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. 2 In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. 4 And where I go you know, and the way you know.”
    5 Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, and how can we know the way?”
    6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

    Please note that in the inital post, there are names that are now in a red font. This means an interview with them is imminent and the deadline for submitting is near.

    In some cases, their names may go back to black if we know we'll catch them again for sure later this year. However, in many cases, we have only one shot this year. If you have questions, get them in before 6pm Central on Friday 4/20 to be included in our first series of chats.

    Beckett Re: Ask the casts of Stargate YOUR questions!

    Ok,

    Amanda Tapping, Torri Higginson and Paul McGillion

    As I'm a British fan of Stargate, are there any new projects you are currently working on that will get shown on UK Tv?

    Garry Chalk

    Colonel Chekov brought a nice political dynamic to SG1 and you played him as a lovely shade of gray. Were there any ideas or plot arcs you would have liked to seen pursued with the character in retrospect? Are you working on any new Voice work projects at present? I loved your take on Man At Arms in the second version of He Man.

    David Hewlett

    You mentioned in a previous interview your love of directing as well as acting, which was a delight to listen to. Are there any updates on your next film projects? How do you determine which projects you want to act in, versus directing?


    Chris Judge, Joe Flannigan, Paul McGillion, Mike Dopud

    You keep yourself in great shape, and it has shown in the characters you have played. - Do you have any tips for us in the audience re keep fit and the gym? Are you good with your nutrition both when playing a role for a while and hopping between parts?


    Comment to All Of The Above

    Thank you for all the effort and entertainment value you bring to your work. Its much appreciated and inspirational, and I hope we will continue to have to pleasure of watching you in new projects for many years to come. Not to mention taking your own time to talk to us and answer our questions like this. Thank You!
