Stargate Atlantis, which is the spin – off from the hugely popular Stargate SG – 1 has introduced fans to a new group of characters, one of which is the stunning warrior woman Teyla Emmagan who is portrayed by Rachel Luttrell. Over the final few episodes of the first season we discovered that Teyla had Wraith DNA that put her in an ideal position to aid the SG Team of Atlantis in their ongoing battle against this new enemy. In a recent interview with Steven Eramo for Starburst magazine Luttrell talked about where she would like to go with her character for the second season of the show.

“This season I’m hoping to dig a little deeper into her culture and find out what she brings from that and how it fleshes her out as a person. When we first met Teyla she was this interesting sketch of a wise and powerful leader. Then slowly during Season One we learnt, among other things, that she can sense the Wraith and establish a two-way link with them. She’s always known this, but up to now her abilities weren’t as acute. They’re gradually growing stronger and it gives me yet another facet of my character to explore.”

Her kinetic connection to the enemy and physical abilities make Teyla Emmagan one of the series’ prize assets in the war against the Wraith. Rachel Lattrell tells us what lies in store for Teyla in the second season…

Teyla Emmagan and her people, the Athosians, are all too familiar with the scourge of the Pegasus galaxy, otherwise known as the Wraith. For centuries, these creatures have been culling planets in order to feed on the Humanoid life forces of the inhabitants, including Teyla’s race. As a child, she was taught by her parents to fear the Wraith. However, this second season on Atlantis, Teyla learns that not all Wraith are the enemy, or at least they don’t start out that way.

“We recently finished shooting an episode called Instinct, which is an especially interesting one for my character,” notes actress Rachel Luttrell, who plays Teyla. “In it, our heroes encounter a young female Wraith, and apparently that’s quite rare. Before this, I don’t think Teyla had even seen one. The female Wraith in this story has been raised by Humans and is humane. She’s called Ellia and doesn’t feed on humanoids, nor does she desire to. In fact, this Wraith is very sympathetic to Humans.
