    Default Camille Wray's role within the IOA

    When Ming-Na was name as playing an IOA character. at the time i assume she represent China, in the past China's IOA member like Chen Xiaoyi (Tamlyn Tomita) had got herself into powerful position like almost getting Woolsy's Atlantis job (she was fooled by anlien computer to give Woolsey a good review which allow Woolsey to keep his job.)

    But in an TV guide article ,Ming-Na play a low ranking IOA accountant,she is openly in a lesbian marriage with a wife back on Earth play by Reiko Aylesworth.

    Well i don't think PRC government will allow something with a Lesbian with non-chinese wife to represent them in IOA.

    Really? That, specifically, would be the "no" factor for their IOA representative decision?

    I mean, I have been under the impression that Wray was Asian-American this whole time, due to her last name.

    Her name is Camille Wray, I'm pretty sure most people didn't expect her to be Chinese from the outset.

    It seems like she may be there as a voice of reason and morality more than anything else. I'm not sure who she represents fully, but on the featurette video at stargate.msm.com, Ming Na says she's head of Human Resources, which suggests she may play a role as a make-shift counsellor to crew members, and that she's there to look out for the people, not just herself.

    Since we are playing the assumption game that she is from China...

    I assume she will win the Destiny Table Tennis Championship 3yrs in a row.
    I assume she will be a brilliant gymnast/diver/rythmic gymast.

    I guess I'm also guilty of making assumptions based on little, as I assumed that she represented a western country based on her name. Two sides of the same double-edged assumption.

    Oh, so just because is of Asian Descent you "assumed" she was from China. What a racist! Na I'm joking.

    well this should be interesting ??, i don't really like the IOA they are just annoying bureacrats , but i do like the fact that they are having a homosexual character on the show finally ( publically), so i am not sure what to think of her yet , i hope she is not a evil annoying character

    She sounds like she'll be great - not the stereotypical IOA rep we've had before. From what Ming Na has been saying about the character, it seems that she'll be strong and professional, but also have a big heart.

    Yeahh, I kinda guess I found it more relatable that he seemed timid with making big decisions that weren't by the books at first, but then he really stepped into his own towards the end.

    Out of interest, with Camille Wray being the gay character, I am pretty sure I saw her apparently getting steamy with someone in the comic con trailer....

    so unless she has turned then she must have found a partner on the Destiny.

    Lets make another assumption that her partner was Chloe. Yep lock that one in.

    You've got to watch out for those lesbian accountants. They're a tricky bunch.

    That wasn't her, that was... *gone blank on the name*. It was discussed in the trailer thread, I think

    LOL! You got a shower scene, you can't expect a steamy underwear scene as well!

    Yeah...pretty sure that you were thinking of Jennifer Spence (played by Lisa Park)

    That's who that woman looks like to me, anyways.

    Yeah, she's like a recurring character or something. JM mentioned how her role has become a bit more prominent (kind of like a Zelenka I guess) because the producers liked what they saw.
