    http://blog.myspace.com/index.cfm?fu...ogID=312690987

    excerpt:

    Stargate Atlantis Premiere!

    To begin, a friendly plug-induced reminder:?* The first episode of the fourth season of Stargate: Atlantis airs this Friday night, September 28th.?* Not that series pick ups are solely dependant on good ratings, but they definitely do help.?* Find a friend with a Nielson box, invade their territory, and turn on the damn show, okay??* The stakes are high, everyone's in peril, major jeopardy, etc etc.?* You'll like it.?* Plus, I look all cool and doctor-like.

    We've reached pretty much the end of the season now, shooting-wise, and I just wrapped a very grueling episode with Amanda "The Tappinator" Tapping and David Hewlett… and after spending two weeks in the set we now fondly refer to as Satan's Hell-hole, we are the best of friends.?* This happens with actors when they're exhausted and have their inhibitions taken away from them while balancing precariously in harnesses; somehow it's a major bonding moment, and despite the strenuousness we all faced, we had a lot of laughs.?* And subsequently ruined a lot of film.?* On the last day of shooting I got a surprise phone call from Nathan, who was in town, and had dinner with him on Saturday night, which was really nice.?* It's kinda funny seeing people go bug-eyed when they see the Captain and Kaylee downing chardonnay and eating fried shrimp.?*

    What else is new??* Apparently a pregnancy, from the amount of questions I got about us "expecting".?* After some investigating, I realized the rumors began after Joe Mallozzi mentioned having to deal with a few pregnancies on this season of Atlantis on his blog, and then included a rather unflattering picture of me with my stunt harness on, bent over at an odd angle while trying to balance on a beam.?* Charming.?* Well, folks, I hate to disappoint, but that was just a roll of fat spilling over a very tight belt-like contraption that pinches you in all the wrong places while ultimately saving your life.?*

    excerpts:

    Wednesday, October 17, 2007 ?*

    Thanks for your kind words on all my doctorin' lately on Atlantis.?* Although I've been absent in the last couple of weeks, I'll be back this Friday, so set those Tivos/VCRs…. Unless you've already downloaded it on bloody iTunes, in which case, I hope you watch it still, because we need season 5 to happen so we don't have to resort to Stargate: the Musical (Hewlett's already written the score.?* I'm not joking around).?*

    Why do I call Amanda Tapping "the Tappinator?"?* Someone also asked "Do you actually call her that to her FACE???"?* Why not??* Are you guys under some sort of illusion that Amanda's this scary bad-ass diva or something??* Hate to break the fourth wall here, but she's pretty much the opposite.?* She's sweet, funny, self-deprecating, and lovely.?* She's the Tappinator.?* And a total spottie. (space hottie)


    Was it difficult going from Kaylee to Keller??* It's not like they were shot back to back.?* Plus, the uniform helps.?* You kinda can't talk about twixting nether regions in a Stargate uniform and expect to be taken seriously.


    What's David Hewlett like??* Ridiculously hysterical.?* Really creative, really fun to be around, and one of my favorites.?* He's always very generous as an actor, and I just like him a lot.?* And he writes a mean musical.

    Jewel now has an official site!

    http://jewelstaite.com/

    she says
    www.jewelstaite.com This blog is now strictly for answering your questions.
    That's right, no other info divulged, because my website is up and running!
    Check it out at www.jewelstaite.com and try not to be scared because my eyes aren't really that alien green.




    meanwhile at her MySpace (you may need to have your own to view) at
    http://blog.myspace.com/index.cfm?fu...dID=147037658&
    blogID=331067752

    here are some excerpts:


    Is the strike affecting Stargate/my life? Not really. Stargate doesn't even
    start up again until the spring, and this time of year is usually dead anyway
    in the acting world, so I'm going to kick back and use my Tivo while
    supporting those picketing writers and pray that it all works out in time for pilot
    season. Otherwise there's going to be a lot of out-of-work actors running
    around, and the fires will be the least of LA's problems.


    How does the Stargate family feel about Firefly? I think most of them have
    seen it. I know David Hewlett has; he told me how much he loved it, and that's
    why he's my favorite. And I saw someone in the production office with a
    picture of Serenity the ship as their screen saver, but I won't tell you who

    countdown to 2008


    Congratulations to all who made it through the madness that is the "Holiday Season".

    **snippage**

    I know I said I would not be spilling any personal tidbits or special news on myspace since I have a website now, but the truth is, I don't know how to work the damn thing yet. It's too complicated for my jumbled little mind to master at the moment, but I'm working on it. Just like I'm working on getting my drivers license and learning to speak French and work the fax machine. All in good time, people. For now, I will spill my beans here.


    I guess it's common knowledge by now that Stargate: Atlantis has been picked up for a fifth season! Yay! I have exactly two months to get my ass in gear to fill those unforgiving little grey pants again! I have no idea what they're planning for season five in terms of storyline, so don't bother asking, but I'm sure it'll be as harrowing and action-packed as the fourth, with me up in a friggin harness again over some swelling river or gorge. I'm very pleased, though, and very excited that my Curse of the Canceled Series After I Show Up seems to be over for now. 'Cause that would have been embarrassing for the eighth time.


    Onward to the New Year, which we are celebrating in style, complete with an actual ball where I get to gussy up. I had another bright idea to invite everyone we know over for a buffet-style dinner beforehand, so here I am, up to my elbows in prosciutto. And still avoiding the gym.


    Questions and answers, the last of them for 2007:

    **snippage**

    Do I read the message boards online? I did once. Not so fun. Ten people can say the nicest things about you, and then the one person that says something rotten is the one comment you remember. I think I stopped reading when someone said they hoped Dr. Keller gets pushed down the stairs by the end of season four. Nice. Here's the facts though: there's three opinions that matter. My peers' opinions, the people I work for's opinions, and my own opinion, and so far I'm good on all fronts. Not everybody's going to like me, and I haven't had it wildly easy with the position I'm in, so if someone wants to imagine pushing me down the stairs, or make up nasty nicknames for me, then so be it. Everybody needs a hobby!

    **snippage**

    My fave three scenes of anything I've done? This is tough. There are a lot of Higher Ground scenes I really love. That character was a lot of fun, and I was very uninhibited then so I think the majority of the stuff I did was really honest. I like the cat-fight scene from Wonderfalls, and I love when Kaylee goes to the ball. There are a couple of Keller scenes I'm really excited about, but I can't talk about them because they haven't aired yet. None, however, involve strawberries, or, sadly, big poofy pink ball gowns.

    **snippage**

    Happy New Year to all of you. I wish you nothing but the best kinds of success and love for 2008.

    Oh, so that's why she mentioned a fax machine during the People's Choice Awards. It's a new piece of tech for her.

    Stargate: Atlantis in Canada

    Stargate: Atlantis’s fourth season finally starts airing in Canada January 20th on the Space Channel at 6 PM! Now my relatives will actually believe me when I tell them I’ve been working! Sometimes they need more proof than the new Jimmy Choo’s I’m sporting…

    So to all of my fellow Canadians who do not have satellite TV, tune in to see me attempt brain surgery next Sunday. Yes, I’m serious.

    People’s Choice Award

    Happy 2008!

    Nothing like starting off the year with an <ahem> People’s Choice Award! Stargate: Atlantis has been voted favorite sci-fi show, so congrats to the hardest working crew I know! We’re set to begin season five in February, and nothing feels better than starting a job with such a devoted fan base behind you. As for the actual award itself, the last time I saw it David Hewlett had it. Never to be seen again.

    Watch out for the episode Quarantine next week, where Dr. Keller finally gets some action. Sort of. Okay, not exactly. Just watch.

    Have a fabulous ‘08 and check out my myspace page for monthly blogs about interesting tidbits in the fascinating life of Jewel i.e. how I feel about mayo. Exciting stuff, people!

    to Cancun or not to Cancun?


    Well it's time for the age-old January question. To book that trip to Cancun or to exercise some physical restraint? Since I've never liked the word exercise in particular, it might be time for a good ol' romp on the beach before work begins. I feel guilty though, taking advantage of this writers strike the way I am with impromptu vacations and spending days sitting on my couch eating hot dogs and watching Lost repeats. But not guilty enough not to get on that plane in my flip flops to escape winter for a while with my friend the margarita.

    I guess it's no secret that not a whole helluva lot is going on in my life to report to you. I'm starting to miss strange things about work. Namely the breakfast sandwiches but other things too, like sitting against the heater in my trailer and falling asleep against the wall when I should be studying my lines, the smell of the smoke machines in the sound stages, listening to Hewlett rattle on after his fourth cup of Earl Grey, etc.etc. A few more weeks left of sitting on my duff, and then I will have that breakfast sandwich in my belly where it belongs.

    Thank God for your questions, or there would truly be nothing to keep my brain occupied. There's only so much Matthew Fox a girl can take. (that's not true.. my capacities for this are really kind of endless..)

    1. What is my reaction to seeing people dressed up like one of my characters?

    Um, AWESOME? Keep doing this, please. It makes my co-stars wildly jealous.

    **snippage**

    5. Am I more comfortable playing Dr. Keller than Kaylee, and is it because I'm more like Keller, or more comfortable now as an actress?

    Well I guess I'm really glad that I appear to be comfortable in the role as Keller, because when she's in her element, I wanted her to be as calm and cool and comfortable as possible. Keller is a lot more mature than Kaylee; she's more level-headed, more grounded, and more guarded than Kaylee ever was. I've adored playing Kaylee and she let me be as big and bold as possible, but there's a quiet strength to Keller that I'm getting to know, and I love how human she is in her mistakes and the self-doubt she has. She doesn't let passion rule her decisions, and she's "real"… One thing I can't stand is the drama actors bring when they're playing doctors; who wants a surgeon who's flipping out in the operating room, soap-opera style? Wouldn't you be like "put the scalpel down" ? She's a lot more complex than Kaylee and has more mystery to her. But I kind of wish I could spin around like a whirling dervish while on fire like Morena got to in Stargate. Did you notice her pumps matched her flames? She hates when I bring up the matching pumps.

    **snippage**

    Thank you so much for your questions… Keep them coming!

    Jewel

    PS. If you have the time, please visit www.waterkeeper.org and support your local waterkeeper. It's too important to not educate yourself on this. It blew my mind what this organization is capable of.

    PSS. Ever heard of a little movie called The Orphanage? No? OHMYGOD SEE THIS!!!!!!! And wet your pants with fear, which is always fun.

    I've had no problem accessing her mySpace. It might be a matter that you need to have a MySpace account in order to access hers. I don't think she's blocking anyone considering she's got 25835 friends
