Interview with Rachel Luttrell: co-star of Stargate: Atlantis

Interviewed by Jason Sizemore

A brief excerpt:

JS: Can you tell us one thing that Stargate: Atlantis fans would love to know about Teyla that they might not already know?

RL: Hmm, and I can't make it up?

JS: Well, yeah, you *are* Teyla, I guess you can make up anything you want!

RL: Hmm, there's a lot of stuff that stays in the back of my mind when I'm portraying Teyla that hasn't come to light or we haven't even fleshed out yet. BUt I will tell you this, when I auditioned for the character there was this amazing speech that was part of what excited me about her, which was about essentially how she became the leader of her people and how her father was killed one night by these crazy bandits and her brother was terribly wounded and I thought it was an amazing story and we haven't dived into yet. I think her father, the death of her father, is a major influence of Teyla's and that is something the show hasn't delved into yet. It's not as cute as saying something like 'she likes peanut butter', but I bet she does. I do!
