          In all cases i would write
          Attentiontargate

          so that they know how to route things

          And folks, negativity and hate mail is not a good thing. And all it does is get things tossed in the trash. And it's not what amanda would want.

          If you want to write to show your support, cool. If you don't, cool.

          I'm not posting this to start anything, i'm just posting it because folks have asked
          Any way we could contact Amanda herself and let her know that most of the SG1 fans want her to quit Bridge Studios all together?

          Comment


            Creation books:

            who they think people will pay to see
            who is willing to work the tour

            and it's possible that CB is thier choice

            of course, i'm sure skiffy and mgm have merchandising in mind. CB's guest shots were heavily promoted and it makes sense to further the promotion by having her do conventions

            Most cons, especially the official and professional ones are all about one thing, making money.

            It's her time and her choice (presumably. it's also possible that, to sign for s10, she had to commit to doing cons as well.)

            If you don't like it, don't go. I for one have no plans to attend a professional convention and, for me, amanda is the only actor i'm intersted in seeing.

              no. you can't speak for 'most fans'

              you can only speak for yourself and your feelings.

              If you want to express yourself, go for it. if you don't, then don't

              but only speak for yourself, don't presume to speak for others

Sooner or later SG1 will end, and Amanda will possibly be a firm character on Atlantis - so there's a good chance that we'll continue seeing her on a regular basis - unlike Special SG1 stars pulled in for very special episodes (to boost ratings during sweeps periods).

                Least I'm trying to think positive - even though the deaths of certain recurring characters has left me feeling rather annoyed with the show.

                I agree with you.I personaly am not at all impressed with s9 till now.I was at Gabit and was appalled at the treatment of Amanda by the PTB re the contract for the coming season 10.I think if amanda is in Atlantis more then i will switch from SG1 to Atlantis because the SG1 i know and love will no longer be the same because i feel it needed Sam.I had a great time at Gabit and Amanda Tapping is a true lady.I love the character Sam Carter .

                  Ok, I'm all settled in my new hotel room and we've decided to actually take today off and just rest as I'm exhausted after Gabit; so I've decided to try to sit down and write up a few details regarding the con. Here's a few questions and answers I can recall off the top of my head at the moment. I'll try to write more later.

                  If Amanda could be a man for a day what would she do?

                  She said she'd like to be President, then someone in the audience mentioned peeing on a bush and she laughed and agreed that she’d like to take a whirl at peeing on a bush (standing up). She mentioned a few other things as well, but embarrassed herself in the process so I'll leave those things off the thread. I'll let someone else post it on the web. Laugh.

                  She also mentioned how she had recently been offered a chance to meet her idol Carol Burnett, but she chickened out saying she was worried that she would make a fool of herself.

                  She talked about how she finally understood the whole fandom thing because when she arrived in London this week she was given the opportunity to tour the set of her favorite television series, Coronation Street. She stated that she was totally in awe as she walked around the set and that her heart was pounding in her chest every time she saw one of the actors. She went on to say that as they past the cafeteria, their guide asked her if she would like to pop in and meet the members of the cast and she once again became nervous and said no. She mentioned how Alan (her husband) popped his head inside and looked around, but she was too nervous. I wish I could express to you all the wonderful giddiness in Amanda’s voice and her exuberant expressions as she described her tour of the set. She told us how excited she was when she walked past the bakery( located on the main street of the Coronation Street set ) and in the window there was cake with a baby buggy and the name ‘Olivia’ written over it. How she actually touched the stones on the street and how now she understood how we all feel when we come to these conventions; however, she still doesn’t feel as if she deserves our admiration.

                  Someone asked her who her favorite Simpson characters were:
                  She said she really liked Lisa Simpson but her favorite was Ralph Wiggums.

                  Amanda also made it quite apparent that she finds Johnny Depp extremely attractive, mentioning it several times during her Q&A sessions. I actually think the words 'Yummy' might have been used, though don't quote me on that as it may have been my own mind thinking it when she mentioned his name. LOL.

                  A fan asked Amanda what her favorite book was to which she replied that she was an avid reader and her favorite book seemed to be whatever book she was currently reading. She did say that she loved a series she was reading about Napoleon and Josephine, though I’ve forgotten the name. Hopefully someone else will remember and post it. She said there were three books in the series and it was written from Josephine’s point of view (like a journal). She commented that it was a wonderfully written that she would recommend it to everyone at the con. She also mentioned that she would love to act in a historical movie/play like this, or something like Bleak House, but said that had already been done beautifully by Gillian Anderson. She had some very nice comments about Gillian Anderson and how well she has been doing since moving to England (with plays and films).

                  Someone asked her who her favorite French actors/actresses were and she named a few but to be honest I was not familiar with any of them and can’t remember the names.

                  Someone asked her if she could look into anyone’s closet and take some clothing to wear whose would it be and after much thinking and several suggestions from the audience she responded that Elton John’s closet would be interesting with all the sequins outfits, hats and glasses to choose from.

                  A fan asked her what she though the top five and worst things about working with Richard Dean Anderson were:

                  The top five worst things about working with RDA were flatulence, flatulence, flatulence, flatulence and flatulence.

                  The top five best things were that he was funny, easy-going, handsome, and gave great hugs which he did on a daily basis ( sorry can't remember fifth ). She said that part of that was because he would regularly ask her to crack his back (which she did very well) and in the process she would get to hug him too.

                  A fan asked her what her favorite episodes were and she said she loved Grace, Resurrection, and Gemini. She said Grace was interesting to make because it was made almost entirely with second crew so it was very intimate with just a few camera people and her on the set. She enjoyed playing the duel characters in Gemini, and while she loved directing Resurrection, she also loved the added challenge that acting and directing the same show gave her.

                  Oh she also mentioned blue jello. In fact, she set up a little blue jello eating contest for the four members of G-4 ( the organizers of Gabit ). She brought out four glasses of blue jello and said it was contest to see who could eat the most blue jell-o in two minutes. She kept saying ‘Blue Jell-o’… my favorite…but I think she meant Sam’s favorite, because later she said ‘I won’t be eating any, because I’ve eaten enough blue jell-o for a lifetime. To make the contest interesting, she required that the contestants must eat it using a pair of chopsticks. The blue Jell-o because it was Sam’s favorite; and the chopsticks because Amanda loves Sushi.

                  Amanda shared with us a small glimpse of her ‘wicked’ sense of humour when she told us about a joke she played on one of the Gabit organizers ( though I can’t remember exactly which one ). I just recall Amanda saying that she threw herself on top of one of the G4’s car and scared the bejeebies out them because they had thought they had forgotten to set the brake and had actually hit her. Hopefully someone else can give a more detailed account of this story as I was fiddling with my camera at the time and missed part of the conversation.

                  Hopefully I can jar my memory a bit more after a nice long soak in the Jacuzzi this afternoon and that this will be enough tidbits to tide you all over until I or someone else can post more.

                  Kat


                  Edit:
                  Oh forgot one another question that I thought was amusing. Someone asked her if there were any American television shows she would like to do a guest spot on and she said she would love to work on the West Wing and E.R. She mentioned several others but I'm drawing a blank.

                  The funny thing is she said one of the actors on E.R is a big fan of Stargates ( I believe she said he played a doctor from Croatia - so I'm assuming it's Goran Visjnic who plays Dr. Luka Kovac. Anyway she mentioned that he had done a movie with Collin Cunningham and that Collin brought him for a tour of the set. She said when Collin introduced them that they both had these big smiles on their faces and he was like..

                  "Hi."
                  "Hi."
                  "I'm a big fan of your show"
                  "I'm a big fan of YOUR show".

                  It was pretty funny listening to her explain it. At any rate, she said she would love to work on E.R.

                    25+ pages of responses in two days to the news.

                    I haven't read them all and I'm late, but I'll have one somewhat snarky comment.

                    In this day and age, I thought a woman could have a baby and come back to a secure job. Goes to show you that some things just haven't changed.

                      Kat you did an awesome job of remebering the questions at GABIT. Have you got some sort of enhanced memory chip in your brain??? Well Done - and yes she did use the word yummy about Johnny Depp, the ER doctor, Christian Slater and Dave De Luise - think her and dave really hit it off from what she said! The only "sex" scene she has enjoyed filming

                        Ahh yes wise words and as an accountant I should understand this. Money is such a dirty word these days, we pretty much sacrifice the human soul for it

                        I'm with you, I would only go to another GABIT with Amanda - she was so entertaining.

                          Oh Amanda made it clear she didn't want to do any cons next year because of Olivia. I think she is doing just one on the east side of the US

                                As for Amanda - always a joy I wish her all the best in whatever she chooses to do next be it on SG1, SGA or something else completely. I hope she follows her heart and does what's right for her and her family .

                                love+hugs to all - tho' you may not want them as 'con crud' seems to have struck me already!!
