wow that's an insightful interview, thanks David and Gateworld! Oh and for the non-czechs... what was David saying right at the end.. I'm getting that it was something like This is David Nykl for Gateworld or something.

But David seems like such a nice, approachable guy, such a lovely interview. Thanks once agian for letting us have some insight to his character and how he plays it :D

He said "This is David Nykl, for Gateworld.net".

I believe he also said our tagline at the end too. I remember learning the Czech word for "Stargate," though I am unable to spell it :S

Glad most of you guys enjoyed the piece. Yes, if you listen to the audio I led and Darren finished off with a question that had David going for another mile.

YAAAAYYY!!! LOVE David Nykl! In fact... *eyes crowd warily* Don't tell anyone, but he's edging David Hewlett off of my Favorites list. ;)

Great interview. Great voice, too. Accented, unaccented, English, Czech, it's all good. http://www.pushupstairs.com/images/emoticon/neptune/Animated/Romance/romance007.gif

I still harbor deep and very angry suspicions about Irresistible, but if anything could get me to watch that ep, it'd be Zelenka. http://www.pushupstairs.com/images/emoticon/neptune/Animated/Romance/romance011.gif

I like that Zelenka isn't necessarily going to be tied forever to McKay. They have GREAT chemistry and watching them together is always a blast, but Zelenka (and Nykl, of course) is one of those wonderful people who can play well off anyone. Give him a brick wall and there'd be a great connection. Hopefully not literally, 'cause that would be icky, but you get what I mean.

So... When's he gonna start blogging?? Huh?? Huh?? Pretty please with chocolate on top?? http://www.pushupstairs.com/images/emoticon/neptune/Animated/Gesture/gesture052.gif

I'd say positive things, honest. Snarky, but positive.

Probably.

Mostly.

Or as positive as I ever get. ;)

So what's it gonna take? Begging? Groveling? Human sacrifice? I have a few minions who've been getting on my nerves, it'd be no trouble, honest! :D Or I could send him cookies, instead. Probably not my own 'cause I want him to be ALIVE, but I'm sure I could sneak something good into the mail.

Gateworld NEEDS Nykl to blog, or... Or I'll CRY. http://www.pushupstairs.com/images/emoticon/neptune/Animated/Sad/sad010.gif And you don't want that to happen because my tears are toxic and everyone will die. So there. Blog or death. Your choice. http://smilies.vidahost.com/contrib/scorchio/saevil.gif

Yeah, you're right. I didn't listen to it when I translate, so I forgot some words... :o)

Actually he said:

Dobrý den, tady David Nykl... Tady Gateworld.net, váš pruvodce svetem Hvezdné brány.

Hello, this is David Nykl... This is Gateworld.net, your guide to the world of Stargate.

"Stargate" - "Hvezdná brána" - [hvieznaa braana] :o)

Yes, mine was the "boring" question at the end. ;)

David is such a cool guy. He wasn't filming that day, and was about to hop a plane to (IIRC) Amsterdam. But he came onto the lot specifically to give us an interview.

He's adorable awesome that way. :D

Zelenka's one of the few characters I really care about, so I'm glad he's going to at least be present in a lot of eps, if not necessarily starring in them. Though he usually finds his own way to shine through even when someone else is trying to hog the spotlight. :P

Thanks to Darrin and David for another great interview with one of my fav actors! I appreciate that you always come up with insightful questions about the actor's craft and approach to a character.

Also, thanks for transcribing these interviews ...so I can read them at work without my office mates knowing!

Dobrý den, tady David Nykl... Tady Gateworld.net, váš pruvodce svetem Hvezdné brány. Actually, he didn`t say "tady gateworld.net", he said "tady je gateworld.net" , but that doesn`t really matter (the meaning is the same)... :ronan:

Thanks for getting the interview.

Zelenka/David Nykl has quickly become one of my favorite characters in STA and I find I want to see more of David in other creative bits. It's fun the humor that David has as a person and how well it comes out in the interview. Thanks!
