STARK OF STARGATE
GateWorld talks with Charles Shaughnessy
Though it has been several years since his appearance on Stargate SG-1, Charles Shaughnessy's portrayal as billionaire entreprener Alec Colson is still a role which resonates with many fans.
Colson's character sounded an interesting note in Season Eight's "Covenant." Should the truth, for truth's sake, be known? Even if there was nothing you could do about it, and even if it would only add worry to your existence?
GateWorld discusses this very question in our interview with Shaughnessy. He talks about the experience of shooting on set, his hopes for returning to the franchise, as well as his current endeavors. We also discuss the phenomenon of the TV sitcom, The Nanny, in which he starred.
A brief excerpt:
GW: You spent a lot of time with Amanda Tapping, how was she as an actress and a human being?
CS: She's: a) adorable, just adorable, and b) what surprised me was that she's a stand-up comic. Her upbringing, her background is stand-up comedy. Improv comedy. She comes from an improv comedy group and sort of found herself as this iconic science fiction heroine in this terrific show.
But she's hysterically funny and she comes from a Canadian ... like a Groundling, a comedy improv group, she's hysterical. She couldn't have been sweeter and nicer to work with. A terrific actress. The whole thing was just really one of those fortunate experiences you have as an actor. You never know what you're going to get into when you go off to do a show somewhere. Sometimes it's just like you have to get through it and do the job. And sometimes they just turn out to be a delight, and this was one, from every aspect, turned out to be delightful.
