waaa! Quicktime won't let me watch it - it comes up with the black screen but it won't let me play it, and when I dl (both the low and high res versions) WMP won't let me play the file - it comes up with error C00D11C5 :( It says the files are corrupt! I have the latest WMP 10 too - I even searched for updates (there weren't any).

Thoughts? Hints?? anyone??? Bueller.... Bueller.... anyone.... :p :D

Já tomu teda vubec nerozumím, co to tady s tím jako myslíte, že jako tady budu takhle sedet a jen tak si s váma bavit, no, no tak jo, no tak zkusíme to.

We have discovered the problem with the files and the new copies should be completely installed by 1:30 PM Eastern today. Thanks for your patience!! I highly suggest watching the videos, even if you've already read the article. We've never had this much fun with a video interview. David took complete advantage of getting to talk one-on-one with you guys.

Thank you, Supreme System Lord. (bows, then winks)

I was one of the very fortunate people in Vancouver, who got to actually spend about ten minutes talking to David Nykl, alone. He was wonderfully easy to talk too, was very enthusiastic about the new season and was thrilled by the fan reaction to his character, Radek Zelenka. I'm looking forward to seeing the interview. I'm very happy tptb are using more of Dr. Zelenka, esp. with McKay, they have great on screen chemistry.

Thanks! :)

I think David Nykl is playing games with us I have tried using translation software to translate it to English unfortunately it does not recognise the words.

Hopefully one of our Czech speaking boys will enter and enlighten us.

BIG THANKS to Veneticuss for typing out the Czech!!!!!

That interview was fantastic. Thank you so much for bringing it to us. Great questions, David's wonderful and you are really getting to be quite the professional with the camera and editing, etc.

Thanx again! :D

Thank you for your support - it really is a learning process and a development of the technology and software we're using. I can't tell you how excited I was when we switched to the 16:9 aspect ratio.

I must give a huge Thank You to the cast and crew for caring about us as much as they do.

Thanks guys! The vid seems to be working perfectly now :D No conflicts at all.

I love how David looks into the camera when he's talking, and "talks" to the fans. He's also one of the few people who are hugely physically different from their characters (Chris Judge is another - especially for early SG Teal'c), I have trouble associating the actor with the character - which is of course a massive compliment :D
I'm really looking forward to s2 and seeing what trouble Zelenka can get himself into :D

I took some really great photos of him at the con (well, I thought they were good :o ), and actually gave him a CD copy - which considering how odd a thing to do that was, he was extremely gracious and chatted with us for a few mins :D Wonder if he found any use for them, or if the disk is enjoying life as a coaster :p (I don't mind, he can do as he wants with them!)

David you do great work!! :D Felt like the three of us were sitting together having a neat conversation. You really know how to bring out the stuff we all want to know and show us the real person. Keep on doing the good things you're doing :D

I loved the interview. And it's cool that DN sometimes lurks here. Hi David! You rock! :)

I must say I full agree on his assesment on why Atlantis is so appealing. Although the Atlantis myth pins much hope for humanity (erroneously in my opinion), it doesn't hurt to hope that Atlantis was the occasion on which we got it right. I definitely like the fact that there is a mix of every skill set and attribute within Atlantis Command, and probably the show will last as long as they keep that in mind, and have the bravery to kill off a character we like (war sux remember) I think the show will be a defining moment in TV history.

Nicely edited, too, although it's a tad disruptive how the DIVX logo keeps popping up every time you show a clip from the show (You know you can turn that off, right? :p)...

Wonderful interview. As always...
Well put together... I thoroughly enjoyed it... David Nykl is delightful.

Wow... the accent...

I was so shocked, I was expecting a slight tint of a Russian accent but there you go. He was so enthusiastic and really seems to dig the entire Stargate Universe.

Hi DAVE! :)

Yeah, he was really cool to meet. Now, I haven't met eeeeveryone off SG *shades of McKay "well, that's just silly, have you MET everyone?" :p* but he is the one that I most end up thinking "wow, what an awesome actor", just so physically and personally so different compared to his character. :)

Lida
July 29th, 2005, 06:10 AM
Yep, he was very "cool" to meet and his down to earth personality and great sense of humor, were a treat. I too haven't met "everyone" from the SG franchise, and I know I never will, but David will always be one of my best memories, maybe because we were alone and just talked. I never felt he was anything but another person, relating experiences, asking questions and really listening to answers.

A great guy, a great actor and the interview showed that! :)

Amazing, wonderful, terrific interview!
I love Mr.Nykl and Dr. Zalenka even more now!

And I totally agree when he said that the good thing about the show is that you don't have only Americans and Canadians playing important roles (it's time to a Brazilian one shows up! :rolleyes: ).

I don't understand, what do you mean by this, that i am sitting here and i am talking with you here, well, well, let's try it.:D :cool:

I've seen David in our Czech con called Avalcon, he is very funny. He talked to us three hours. I have some photos of him from this con.
