    Though I'll bet part of it is that, well, Elizabeth hasn't been on the show as a regular for two years now. Out of sight, out of mind. Hmm, maybe an Elizabeth ficathon is in order...
    Not to say that Torri wasn't treated respectfully, she doesn't seem all that dissatisfy. We're more talking about how she felt the situation was being handled. She seems to understand quite clearing of the political aspect of Hollywood. But regardless, to put myself in her shoes I think I'd prefer my employer to tell me ahead what's up so at least I can look for the next gig. Afterall this is money business not favor business... She lives on it as income!

    I mean I know there are people "LINE UP" to be a part of the cast but regardless of the competition and the amount of options the producer have, treat these people with some courtesy... Their living situations and food depends on it!

    So, really, is it so hard?

      Well, we were actually talking about how the character of Elizabeth is treated in fanfiction.

      As for the real life behind-the-scenes situation with Torri, I have to agree with the 'treat your cast with courtesy' line. A producer's reputation in the industry could be made or broken depending on positive or negative word of mouth from happy or unhappy actors and crew members.

      Sparky is on screen. Therefore, it is canon. Elizabeth is still out there. And John WILL bring her home.

            No, but I did study political science in university. Hmm, maybe that's part of why I like Elizabeth, since she taught poly sci courses at Georgetown University before she got called in to run Stargate Command.

              Hey, at least there's people talking - all you see in the Secondary Women of Atlantis thread is tumbleweed and a lemming playing with it. Shameless plugging at its best.

                I keep wishing I had enough money to buy MGM Studios. Does that count?

                      I agree with you. There are not enough female characters in sci fi. I have not seen the film Star Trek so I can’t say anything about this.
                      For Stargate, all the writers are men. They find it easier to write for the male characters. What can you do except read fanfics where women are beautifully written? ).
                      I agree with you again on the fact of treating actors with courtesy. I have the impression that Torri was not treat like this. But no one knows the whole story so ...

                              Hey... no tumbleweed yet... I know this thread (my favorite) and there's tumbleweed all over the place... and sand, and dust, and a lemming sometimes too talking to itself.

                                Got a question for you all: When Weir was first introduced in SG-1's Lost City, we were told that she spoke five languages. Obviously, English was one of them, but were we ever told what the other four were? And if not, what do you think her other four languages are?
