Interview: Torri Higginson talks about playing Dr Elizabeth Weir.
Torri Higginson plays polymath leader Dr Weir in Stargate SG-1 spin-off Atlantis. Promoting the release of the first Stargate: Atlantis DVDs, she chatted about the role, imagination and unflattering uniforms.
Did you follow Stargate SG-1 before getting the part?
I always hate answering this question, because actually no, I didn't. I'm not a big telly watcher at all. I watch British stuff, The League of Gentlemen and things like that. So it was a huge learning curve when I got the show. They passed me all these DVDs and I went Stargate mad for a couple of weeks.
I hear you're a fan of extreme travel. Would you jump through a stargate in real life?
I wonder. I know I would if it was SG-1 and I knew I could come back. I don't know if I would if it was as Elizabeth did, not knowing if they could come back. I wouldn't hesitate if I knew I could come back.
