Once again a great interview guys! Thank you!

So it was his idea to grow the beard :) - They only look alike superficially anyway... Sounds like TPTB did panic a little.

Loved how these actors are really enjoying the opportunity to work with such experienced, respected hollywood stalwarts as Beau and Lou... This is a fantastic thing for them all career-wise.

I'm really, really psyched about this season...glad everyone connected with the show is too!

It was a sorta funny interview to read, probably because I'm sorta loopy today. I'm looking forward to a Lexa-interview in fact, it would be interesting to see what her take is, as a member of the new cast lineup.


"They do know I'll be the one with the glasses, right?"

Great interview guys:) Thanks for doing all the hard work to bring us this interview with one very talented actor and genuinely nice man. Loved the stuff about he, Lexa and the baby getting time to bond more with each other.

And I'm telling ya, I would have known the difference between Daniel and Mitchell..Daniel will be the civilian one right;) (but the beard looked nice on Shanks and as more pictures came out it became more flattering looking on Daniel so I'm not complaining)

Again thanks:)

Well done on the interview David and Darren. Too bad Michael didn't have enough time on his hands. :)

Yes, as much as we would have loved to hang out with Michael for a good hour or two, he apparently had to film some show called "Stargate." We'll take what we can get. :)

In this case it's a good thing that he talks so fast! We got a good 15 minute interview in six minutes. ;)

Its been awhile since an interview with Michael.
Plus something how "change" is a really good thing.
Ep 1 of S9 really delves into some fun unchartered territory.

*on a side note, its fun to see Ben & Mike play off each other's character.
Its as if one was the younger brother, while the other is older.
Gonna be pretty cool to see Lexa's role soon.

:cool:

I ... I mean we appreciate it ... for all your work and for arranging an interview with Shanks.

Now any interviews with Amanda and her post-pregancy "fun"?

Glad to hear that. The transcripts take a lot of time to do, sometimes. Especially the hour-long ones.

Thanks for the great interview. I managed to listen to it in the middle of the night in my room just before bed and I was laughing quite a bit at the beard joke. The beard actually does look quite good on Michael :D

I have been frequently visiting the GateWorld website for some time now, and I am very impressed with the widespread effort that has been put into it, as a whole.
Once again, thankyou and godspeak! :)

Stargate? What's that then?

Sorry, couldn't resist! Great interview though, good job!
Thanks :)

Reading it made me even more excited about season 9, can't wait now!
Just wish it would start already in the uk!

There should be a record for the 'most smilies in a thread' at Gateworld. :)

He shouldn't phase out the beard. He's Doctor Daniel Jackson and that's a doctor look if I ever saw one. :)

Fortunately for me, I can read it while I'm listening!! Great interview and thank you for the transcript because, without it I think I wouldn't understand everything!! :D
