Thanks for the interview! She seems quite lovely, as I've said before, knowing the people behind your fav shows are humble and cool people makes the show that much more fun.

A wish list, hmm. You know what? I'm looking forward to diving into more of her background and more of what has made her who she is. I'm also interested in seeing her vulnerability. However that will play out I don't know. It may play out with her emotional ties, or with something that has happened to her in the past. But I'm looking forward to finding the little chinks in her armor because she is such a proud, guarded person and she's very, very strong, but it'll be interesting to really explore more of her vulnerability.
But heck, I'm also looking forward to more fighting sequences. Having said that, sure, I want to see the vulnerable side of Teyla, but I'm really excited about all this great stuff I'm learning in terms of fighting techniques. It's really cool.
WOOHOO!!!! A 3-D Teyla and we get more stick fighting. And the stick fighting is making a logical progression. Man, now I'm really ready for July.

This is the third interview I've heard of Rachel and she is deffo a very lovely person - very bubbly.

Great interview - I think it would be interesting to see the vulnaribility of Teyla as she always seems so strong.

Very nice interview. I was at the Newark convention and was very impressed with her poise and grace. Give the drama of the show, you don't get to see the characters smile that much. Rachel has a wonderful smile and a delightful laugh. I hope there will be reasons for her to laugh on the show.

Wonderful interview David :).... It was really nice to hear the joy of her job...in her voice :D

Now David I do hope you will give all of the Shepperd/Weir Shippers the same type of open relationship questions when you talk to Torri/Weir. ;)

lovely interview David :)

That was a really lovely interview David, thanks so much! It was really nice to see Rachel interviewed and she comes across as a very lovely, honest and warm person. Thanks for giving us more insight into the actress behind the mysterious Teyla, I hope to see her interviewed again in the future.

And don't forget Mckay/Weir either ;)

Is there a Torri interview going to happen soon then or is it just a case of when it happens somewhere in the future?

Anyway, great interivew. Rachel sounds so nice and so happy with her job - loved all the questions and her answers. :)

I typically share little tidbits about what happened during or around this interview and it dawned on me that I never did for this one. Rachel was staying with a friend and had just got in from shoveling snow out of her driveway! She really is delightful and reminds me a lot of AT.

When we were on set with Joe Flanigan it was her closeup shot after she, Ronon Dex and a troop of Athosians came through the Stargate. She had to walk off-stage in the area where we were sitting and every time she came down the ramp Joe shouted something different at her, generating a different response out of Rachel for each take. It was quite funny.

Yet another brilliantly, lengthy interview David. :) Good stuff, indeed. I particularly like the detailed responses from the questions, not just from Rachel, but everyone who has been interviewed. Look forward to watching/listening to future ones. ;)

Yes, please! :-)

I enjoyed reading/hearing the interview, and think Rachel Luttrell sounds like a very sweet and genuine person.

But I must admit I wasn't thrilled to see relationship questions that only focussed on a Sheppard/Teyla "ship" pairing. I know this isn't a "shipper" discussion/debate forum, but I must say that while I love both the characters, I personally see no signs of a love match between them, and so was a bit disconcerted by the relationship questions.

I hope that questions regarding a possible Sheppard/Weir pairing are given equal time in the near future! ;-)
