What a lovely lady ! :cool:
Almost as gracious as Oma,and a Stargate Fan herself ! I liked her answer to the "riddle"about the candle,....I don't think the food would taste too good either . ;)
I really hope we see more of her in future episodes,and that her other projects do well. :D

I liked the fact she was a fan before she played Oma....she didn't look like she would have known Stargate (yeah, I know...stupid prejudice...)

Robert Cooper says Daniel will be dealing with his relationship with Desala - which means we might just see her. Maybe not, but I surely hope so.

This is indeed a very nice interview! Great to have actors who actually have been knowing Stargate before the played a part.

Didn't Cooper say in a recent interview something about a late season 8 episode which deals with Daniel's ascention time, this would be perfect for Oma's second appearence. What do you think?

EDIT: David you beat me by a few seconds :rolleyes:

It was a good interview. Hope we do see her again.

It would have been interesting to hear her talk about the set. According to the DVD journal the Gateroom got pretty hot with the lighting. I would have liked to know if she had to jump through the Gate for them to create her glowing image.

Something tells me this isn't the last time we've spoken with her. If we do again I'll make sure to ask your question.
