Stargate Atlantis - TV Guide Online: Ask Matt Monday Sept. 24

**major snippage**

Question: What is your take on the cast changes on Stargate Atlantis? I'm personally pretty happy that SG-1's Amanda Tapping is making the trip to Atlantis. It seemed pretty inevitable: Someone was going to cross over after Torri Higginson's role was minimized. Anyway, as an objective party who's never been all that entrenched in the series, what is your opinion? Also, have you heard the theory that Higginson wanted out of her contract?

— C.N.

Matt Roush: I honestly don't know the circumstances of this cast change, but churn like this is inevitable on just about any long-running show — although experience has told me that any time a major change happens on a cult sci-fi/fantasy series, there will be some outcry. (Remember the fuss when Michael Shanks left SG-1 for a season? I certainly do!) From where I sit, as a detached observer who never got deeply involved in either series (they're enjoyable but, to me, not habit-forming), this all makes perfect sense. I think of Worf migrating from Star Trek: The Next Generation to its spin-off Deep Space Nine after TNG went off the air. Enhancing the spin-off with a popular character from the mother ship is TV 101. Since it doesn't look like the overall Stargate franchise is going away anytime soon, this should also serve to appease SG-1 fans who wished that show could've last forever.

Stargate Atlantis - GateWorld: Interview with Jewel Staite

From GateWorld:

(Please follow the link for the complete interview at GateWorld.)

With a new season of Stargate Atlantis about to get under way, GateWorld sent our own newcomer, Chad Colvin, to sit down with the show's newest recurring cast member, Jewel Staite. A veteran of the science fiction genre thanks to her year as Firefly's darling engineer Kaylee, Jewel joins the Atlantis expedition as Dr. Jennifer Keller.

It's actually not her first time in the Stargate universe: Back in Atlantis's second season, Jewel played the Wraith girl Ellia ("Instinct"). The producers were hesitant to waste such a great actress on a one-off, but quickly realized they could bring her back without the heavy prosthetics.

In the interview Jewel discusses her sci-fi roots, filling the place of a beloved character (Dr. Carson Beckett), and her favorite episodes from the upcoming season. She also talks about working with her new cast mates, notably Amanda Tapping and Rachel Luttrell.

Beware of minor spoilers for Season Four of Atlantis in this interview, as well as a big one for Season Three's "Sunday" -- and for last May's third season finale of LOST. The fourth season of Stargate Atlantis premieres Friday, September 28 at 10 p.m. (Eastern/Pacific) on SCI FI Channel!

A brief excerpt:

GW: We saw briefly in "First Strike" some interaction between Keller and Dr. Weir. Can you give us any insight into her working relationships with any of the other crew members? Colonel Carter? McKay? Ronon and Teyla?

JS: Carter and Keller have a connection because they're both new and proving themselves a little bit. In the episode we're filming now, "Trio," they actually become friends. They're each out of their comfort zones and they start to open up about their personal lives, which is a lot of fun.

Amanda Tapping is hilarious, and I have a very tough time looking her in the eye during a scene without laughing. McKay and Keller have a good-natured argument every once in a while, but they have a mutual respect for each other, too. There's definitely a friendship developing there.

Teyla and Keller's relationship has a chance to develop a lot in the episode "Missing." They find themselves in some dire situations there and have no choice but to bond. And Rachel Luttrell and I get along ridiculously well.

As far as Ronon goes, I think it's safe to say Keller has a wee bit of a crush on him. Because she has, you know ... eyes.
