Interview with Firefly and Stargate's Jewel Staite

the_matt writes "Jewel Staite, who is best known as Kaylee from the TV show Firefly, has just signed on to Stargate Atlantis for Season 4 and will be playing Dr. Keller. I got to talk with her about her new character on the show as well as asking some questions about her role on Firefly.

MS: Could you tell us what your experience has been like so far since joining the Atlantis cast?

JS: Its been really good. I feel a lot like the new kid. Everyone has been really nice and accommodating... David Hewlett has been teasing me since the beginning, it reminded me a lot of Nathan (Fillion) teasing me on the Firefly set.


MS: Any favorite moments since joining the show?

JS: I remember being interviewed for this part and they gave me this monstrous paragraph of technobable to read and I just messed it all up and I said "I'm a mechanic not a doctor" and that kinda broke the ice and made everyone laugh. Also "Missing" is my favorite episode so far. You get to learn a lot about Dr Keller early on and there is some nice character development.


Believe it or not there are still more Stargate interviews to come...
