        Spoiler:
        She joins Stargate SG-1 cast member Amanda Tapping, who also joins Atlantis' cast, reprising her role of Col. Samantha Carter.

        Staite is "fabulous," executive producer Robert C. Cooper said in an interview on the show's Vancouver, Canada, set over the weekend. Other cast members hinted that Keller may develop a romantic relationship with one of the other characters and will become friends with Carter.

        As for Carter's joining the Atlantis team, executive producer Joseph Mallozzi said the transition won't go smoothly. For one thing, Carter and Rodney McKay (David Hewlett) have a history, as fans of SG-1 know well. "There will be a little friction off the get-go," Mallozzi said. "But they're both adults [about it]." McKay's unrequited lust for Carter will be addressed, Mallozzi promised. "That gets touched on very early on."

        "The difference between Carter and [Dr.] Weir [Torri Higginson] is that Carter is in the military," Cooper added. "In fact, when she joins them she's a full-bird colonel, and she's a superior to [Lt. Col. John] Sheppard [played by Joe Flanigan], so there's really not much he can say or do; she's his superior officer."

              Kinda like Sam is gonna be on SG-1 and on Atlantis at the same time, right? That's multi-tasking

              Yeah, I'm sure they will have some explanation of how the timeline works... and hey, if Amanda can do it Sam can! It's not like Sam has a toddler or Sanctuary to deal with as well!

                    Just seen Wep3, fantastic! Took quite a while to download, but definitely worth waiting for! Lots of humour again, great rapport between Magnus and Ashley. Nice bit of action too, and fun role for Peter DeLuise. Be interested to hear what everybody else thinks!

                      IMHO, pairing warnings are a must.

                      just as, if the fic is whumping or romantic or whatever. it's simple politeness to let folks know what they're getting into so that they dont' get 'tricked' into reading something that they don't want

                      on the other hand, if someone doesn't warn and you hate slash and it goes to a slash fic...don't toss a hissy fit, just X out of it and maybe warn people instead 'umm, this IS sam/vala for those that dont' know'

                          Amanda had a very small part in the Spaceys. PG15 has kindly captured and edited all the SGA parts together (see original post under spoilers) and I snipped the Amanda part and you can get it here, it's 5.34Mb and 32 seconds long in mpg format.

                          Many thanks to PG15 again!!

                          Ahem, I mean...yeah, so the Space Channel is a pretty cool...channel, and the Spaceys have since become a great annual event. This year, Atlantis was featured a lot, so I thought it'd be nice to record it and share the Atlantis bits with those who didn't get to see it.

                          Atlantis won 2 awards: Favorite TV Character (Rodney) and Best TV Show. Both resulted in hilarious acceptance "speeches" from David Hewlett as well as most of the main cast + David Nykl. The Award show also began on the Atlantis sets with one of those "Award host mingle with shows in the awards" sketches that you see a lot, but unlike most "official" awards, this was actually pretty funny.

                          There was also a short ending bit with a little more Hewlett madness and Joe Flanigan...once again, they aren't together, sorry.

                          Enough rambling, see the compilation vid HERE (~13 minutes, ~50 mb)

                          It's a pretty big file (as you can see), so watch out for that...even though the quality isn't all that great; sorry, best I can do.

                          Enjoy!

                              Here's the transcript for Amanda's interview on The Standard

                              spoilered for size:
                              Spoiler:
                              Presenter: but first, Amanda Tapping is probably best known for her role in the sci-fi television series Stargate: SG-1 but this busy actor has had TV roles in other series too. Like Due South, The X-Files and the Outer Limits. A feminist at heart, Tapping grew up in a male dominated home with three brothers, she credits her mother and grandmother along with Gloria Steinham for helping her develop a strong personality. Shannon Nelson recently had the opportunity to chat with Tapping about her career and spirituality.

                              Voiceover: The sci-fi TV series Stargate: SG-1 ran for an unprecedented 10 seasons before it was cancelled and the major players in the series like Richard Dean Anderson and Amanda Tapping became household names for sci-fi fans. But back when it all began no one had any idea what they were in for.

                              Shannon: Did you have any idea when you embarked on this

                              Amanda: No
                              [laughs]

                              Amanda: When I signed my deal you sign a five year series contract as a standard rule of thumb but we knew going in that we had a two year pickup from Showtime at the time with the network, we knew we had 44 episodes. So all we had to do was make it through the pilot and if our characters got picked up, so we were all on our best behaviours and our characters got picked up and we knew we had 44 episodes. So that's unheard of, I mean that was like an amazing commitment coming out of a pilot normally it's maybe six, maybe 13 network standard, so to have 44... So we had the luxury of doing this great story arc, but I thought two years that's pretty great and then we knew after Season 1 it was going to be four years and then suddenly it was five years and we all thought Oh Wow. And then 7 years is the sort of standard sci-fi Star Trek

                              Shannon: Right

                              Amanda: model so we thought seven years, phew we're done, eight, nine, What? What? Ten!

                              Shannon: It's almost unheard of

                              Amanda: I think we would have actually been shocked if we'd been picked up for an 11th season it would have, it would have been completely shocking

                              Shannon: Yeah. OK, I've got to ask this question because we've interviewed the man, what was it like working

                              Amanda: with Richard Dean Anderson

                              Shannon: Well I was going to call him McGuyver but

                              Amanda: Yeah. He's great. Richard set the standard for us in terms of his sense of humour and terms of his sort of irreverence. It made it fun to come to work and that was his mantra from the very beginning "If you're not having fun, get off the set"

                              Shannon: mmm hhmm

                              Amanda: so that, he definitely set the tone and he was the benchmark by which we sort of held ourselves up to that standard. And here's a man who understands the medium better than anyone, I mean after being on a successful series like McGuyver he understands how that works so we learned a lot from him.

                              Shannon: Alright now I read, and you can correct me if I'm wrong that there was a point in your career that you swore you'd never do television.

                              Amanda: Oh! Absolutely. I graduated from theatre school with a very limited vista.
                              [laughs]

                              Amanda: I graduated with a very theatre background

                              Shannon: Right

                              Amanda: and I said that I would only ever do stage and maybe really, really good art films

                              Shannon: Yes

                              Amanda: really meaningful art films. Um yeah in my naivete and one of our guest instructors said to me "Oh you're going to do television" and I said pffft! No, No,
                              [laughs]

                              Shannon: Too tacky for me

                              Amanda: Dear God, prostitute myself for my art? What are you crazy?
                              [laughs]

                              Amanda: And then I got an agent in Toronto and I got my very, very first audition was for a Tim Horton's donuts and I got it! It was for their oat bran muffins don't you know. So it was very healthy and I played the counter girl and with the bad visor and the hair net and I though "Oh my god" here I am on a set and I'm selling oat bran muffins for Tim Horton. What Happened to my career goals?!? And then I got the pay cheque and I went, I can pay my rent, I can eat this month, you know struggling artist
                              Shannon: Yeah

                              Amanda: And then I got more commercials and it was just a slow build and the next thing I know I'm on a sci-fi series for 10 years so there ya go

                              Shannon: Yeah slow build to that

                              Amanda: Never say never

                              Shannon: No

                              Amanda: Maybe I should say I never ever want to win an Academy Award

                              Shannon: Yeah or the lottery

                              Amanda: Or the lottery, ever

                              Shannon: I'm sure it will work

                              Amanda: I won't prostitute myself for that
                              [laughs]

                              Shannon: Alright well let's go back because I know you were born in England

                              Amanda: Yes

                              Shannon: and raised in Toronto,

                              Amanda: Yes

                              Shannon: You've got a twin brother

                              Amanda: Yes

                              Shannon: two other brothers

                              Amanda: Yes

                              Shannon: one who sadly you just lost

                              Amanda: yes he passed away

                              Shannon: Do you mind telling us a little about that because it was just months ago

                              Amanda: Yeah he died on Christmas Day

                              Shannon: Right

                              Amanda: Ah he ah was the oldest of the four kids,Steven. He had a really tough life, he struggled with epilepsy his whole life, schizophrenia which we believe was sort of part and parcel of the epilepsy and the medication. in the 70's they really didn't know how to deal with epilepsy so it was triple the dose of phenobarb, double dose the dilantin and see what happens

                              Shannon: Yeah

                              Amanda: So he became a little bit of a chemical soup and we attribute that a lot to the schizophrenia that he suffered but he was an amazing man. See we called him The Cockroach lovingly, we always said to him Steven there's going to be a nuclear holocaust and you're still gong to be walking the earth. So it was a shock when he actually passed. But he won the volunteer award in Toronto in 2004 for his work, he worked in what essentially is the downtown eastside of Toronto, kinda the Main & Hastings of Toronto and he volunteered in the soup kitchen at the church and he volunteered for all sorts of church activities and a women's shelter and he just, he was amazing.

                              Shannon: Yeah just a good guy

                              Amanda: He was a great guy and he was very spiritual, he believed in God and so when he passed for us it gave us a great sense of comfort that he knew where he was going, he absolutely believed.

                              Shannon: What about you. What do you go through spiritually when something like that happens.

                              Amanda: Huge questions right. Automatically you go What next? What comes next? Surely there's got to be something

                              Shannon: Yeah

                              Amanda: I guess I'm more Buddhist in my philosophy of the way we live our lives, the way we walk this earth and the way we treat our fellow man. Like it's my belief that it would be more of a Buddhist philosophy but it's not that different from Christianity or Judaism or Muslim belief. We all, the essential tenet of all religion is do unto others as you would have done unto yourself. Every single major religion says that and I believe that and I live that, so. When Steven passed all I can say is that I have to hope you know without having, because it's a hard thing to wrap your head around but because he believed so strongly I absolutely believe he's in heaven.

                              Shannon: Yeah. Given all your exposure through SG-1 and all the things you are doing now, is it possible for a gal like you to have any kind of a private life?

                              Amanda: Oh totally! That's the beauty of this. I mean I'm not a huge celebrity, it's fantastic, I'm doing what I love to do for a living and I'm working full time as an actress and now producing but I can still go grocery shopping because nobody gives a...
                              Shannon: [laughs]

                              Amanda: about me in Vancouver. When I go to Paris, I get followed or there's cameramen outside the hotel. Or when I'm in England people recognise me a lot more and I get recognised here in the grocery store People go Hey SG-1. Which is great but it's not at all of the stratosphere of celebrity we see on the covers of the tabloids or the magazines. I don't ever have to deal with that and you know knock wood but that's just not the level of celebrity that I'm at, and that's perfect.

                              Shannon: Well this has been great

                              Amanda: Yeah

                              Shannon: and we're out of time

                              Amanda: Get out

                              Shannon: Well I telling you

                              Amanda: It goes so fast

                              Shannon: It is fast but thank you so much for sitting down and talking to me

                              Amanda: Well thank you

                              Shannon: I really enjoyed this

                              Amanda: Yeah, me too. Thank you.
