Thought that I would start a thread for Patrick Gilmore/Dale Volkar as I didn't see one in the list of threads.

Feel free to post away.

I'll start off by saying Patrick is one very awesome person! I just happened to twitter him a picture of a Stargate Ring that I had made out of Duct tape, and that it was what I had done for my birthday yesterday. And about not even ten minutes later I notice I have a PM. And then whe I see it, I noticed that it was from Patrick! And here is what he wrote:

"Hey!! Happy Belated Birthday!!! Wow, you spent a lot of time on that Stargate. Cool detail. "

I couldn't hardly believe it when I saw it. Man is he ever sweet! :)

I may post a pic of the gate later when I get a chance.

In the secondary cast he is one of my favorite expacially after his Mozart comment in Darkness
p.s. Belated Happy Birthday

Great that finally somebody add him to the list!

Sorry to all, I don't want to be fussy, but his name is Dale Volker, not Volkar. And Volker has a PhD, unlike Adam Brody, as far as I know.

That he is. I wished him happy birthday on his birthday, a few weeks ago or so. And he then replied back later that day in a PM to thank me for wishing him happy birthday. Wasn't expecting him to so I was a little surprised when he had.

Just like this time. I had just posted the pic for him to see and enjoy and didn't expect him to actually reply back. So it was cool when he had.

There are a couple on twitter that I have actually been chatting with lately at times and am not at all surprised when the tweet back to me (BamBam is one of them and Alaina has been the other). Others I do get surprised when they tweet back. That is what I find good about twitter. It is a non threatening way (unless you start posting umpteen dozen tweets to a person in a day) to send messages to the cast and crew. And they can choose to respond back if they want to or not. As it is pretty much known not to expect any replies back. And that's what I do. I just message them occasionally in response to something they have said or if I have something to share. And if they do reply back then cool. If not, no big deal.

Love Patrick. :D

Yeh he is definately very sweet from what I can tell.

And for those who are interested, he is in a film called "Year of the Carnivore" where he has a role playing a guy named Todd. I don't believe he is one of the main characters, but he did tweet yesterday that the film opens this weekend in Canada. Not sure if that means that it isn't opening elsewhere, or what. I posted to him on twitter asking that so hopefully he lets me know.

Edit: Got a PM on twitter from Patrick indicating that he would let us know if he is able to find out if "Year of the Carnivore" is being aired Stateside as well as Canada.

Nice to know, he is one of my favorite characters on this show.

If you like him, then you may also like to follow him on twitter. His twitter info is @PatrickGilmore

Most of the time I wouldn't expect him to tweet back but a couple of times he had DM'd me (sent me a direct message via twitter, though I couldn't reply back as only those whom he follows can DM so I just tweeted back instead). Which I was totally surprised about each time.

Of the secondary cast, I would definately enjoy meeting him. Would be cool to be able to get him to sign my duct taped stargate as he did tell me that he thought it was cool and that I had put a lot of detail into it! :)

He is also in a Disney film that I think was made for TV called "16 Wishes". He has tweeted about it a few times. Doesn't sound like he has a major role, but was in the movie. Haven't seen it as I think it was on a channel I don't get. As I don't have cable.

I cant shake the feeling that he may get killed on the show sometime soon... its a Stargate tradition to wack someone just for funs and it happened to main characters on previous show to.

I just dont want them to murder another one of my favorite characters like they did to Riley.

With Volker being one of the more likable secondaries on the show, I wouldn't be surprised if he did end up like Riley. After Aftermath, I think all of the secondaries, including Telford, are fairing game for getting scragged at virtually any time. Kiva died very abruptly and of course there was Riley. I'm thinking that either Varro or another secondary character will be killed off sometime this season. Hopefully it won't be Volker.

Patrick Gilmore is such a nice guy, a joy to chat to. He was up for some silliness at a Fan Party held during a convention in Vancouver in April.

Here he is with his 'science partner' in SGU; Peter Kelamis (Adam Brody) I really like his character and Brody, also really.... really hope they are not killed off!

Okay, with my other favourite recurring characters now dead - it should be pretty easy to guess who - I think Volker is really stepping up to the plate and becoming a favourite of mine. It's been one of the more subtle character warmings I've felt - sorta like Scott early in the season. But I gotta say why, so here we go:

Looking back, it's been a process of elimination thing. Riley was always my favourite secondary character, but I always loved the science group - Park, Brody and Volker. Not so much Franklin, but he's better now than he was. But still, Park's reading put her on top first off because of the sheer matter-of-fact way she did it back in Life, and then her positive comments in Faith were great. Brody was always a bit of negative guy, but I still love the deadpan humour about him.

Onto Volker: Pain probably helped a lot. Great performance by Patrick, and it really played off the fact the character seemed to be hiding some unstable nature in the background, as shown in Life with TJ's interview. Then there was this Kino episode, The Apple Core, which was pure awesome Volker teasing Brody about the Apple Core. Now, in season two, what first caught my attention was Pathogen, when he defended Park from Simeon's little comment in the cafeteria. Dude looked ready to go all out and beat Simeon's ass.

Malice was fantastic for Volker, almost as much as it was fantastic for Eli or Rush. Seriously, the gateroom hostage scene and the ones in the bridge were great. Whether or not he has feelings for Park isn't really a big issue - even if he likes her as a friend, there's something great about his loyalty and willingness to throw himself on the fire for her. I hadn't really noticed him until this, and now I'm going to be on the lookout for him some more. With Riley, Perry and Ginn all deadsies, Volker's all that's left among the favourite recurrers. At least I'm sure he'll survive to the end of season two...

Riley & Volker were my two favorite secondaries—that is, until Riley was out of the picture. Given the deaths we've seen, I think that somewhere down the line, Volker may get eliminated as well. I certainly hope not though.

The recent deaths certainly created a lot of impact. It certainly left me wondering whether the other secondaries were going to get killed off in Malice. But Volker had great moments there like you said.

I didn't notice this the first time around, I'll have to rewatch the scene, then. I remember it now that you mention it, but I was more focused on Greer's reaction at the time.

This. I began to really pay attention to Patrick Gilmore's performance as Volker after being blown away by his understated portrayal of Trennan on Riese. He really gives a nuanced performance, and the hostage scene really highlights it. He truly conveyed a sense of helplessness at the situation.

Is this a misstatement on his part? It sounds like he's saying he was there from the very beginning (CotG). I think he means Gary and Amanda were there from the beginning, but not himself.


I think there were three, Gary Jones, Amanda Tapping and myself who were there from the first episode of SG-1.

May I present Harrison Gilmore… on life & stuff (http://harrisongilmore.tumblr.com/).

Basically you match appropriate photos of Patrick with quotes from Harrison Ford (I just googled Harrison Ford quotes).

He told an hilarious story about driving to location in a van with Ben, Michael, Amanda and Chris....sadly the punchline and subject matter is not one that can be posted on GW... ;)

He had a lot of really interesting stuff to talk about, a few hockey rants and a fascinating link to him and Michael Shanks through Michael's new hockey film "The Gordie Howe Story"... apparently Michael filmed a "fight scene" in this film portraying a game between Gordie's team and the Edmonton Oilers...one of the men involved in the "tussle" with Michael's character was a certain Tom Gilmore....Patrick's dad was a professional NHL hockey player for the Edmonton Oilers!!!...

Awesome coincidence or what?.. :)
