Stargate Atlantis - Amanda Tapping - NEW Video Q&A Part 3

From the SciFi Channel's Stargate Atlantis section:

Jan. 25, 2008

In the third and final segment of her video Q&A series, Amanda Tapping (Dr. Samantha Carter) answers a few more questions received from fans via SCIFI.COM's Stargate Atlantis Forum.



Transcription and Screenprints from the video clip:

Question: Will we find out if Jack and Sam get together this season?

Amanda: "Are we going to find out if Jack and Sam are together...(winces) no. BUT! There's an interesting little line in the episode, "Trio," which addresses it. An interesting little scene between Jewel Staite's character and myself."

Clip from Trio plays.

Dr. Keller (Jewel Staite): "Well, you want to play twenty questions? I'll let you go first. Animal, vegetable or mineral?"

Amanda: "You know, in our writers usually so subtle way. But yeah, there's an interesting line that addresses it. But he doesn't come visit me. Which is why I'm asking him to."

Question: The leather you wear in the promos, will you wear it on the show?

Amanda: "Well, Wraithfodder, the leather outfit is actually the team's going away outfits. They're redesigned all the wardrobe this year, new costume designer, and total redesign. So Carter actually does have an off-world outfit that is black leather. Sadly, I think I only get to wear it in a few episodes. But, it's pretty hot. I mean hot physically, it's leather (tugs at uniform top, laughs)...(waves hand)...It's very cool, and we knew like taking the publicity shots that it was a know, it might look a little camp, but I think actually that when you put all the outfits together, when you see us all in our black leathers, it's pretty cool. So, I like it."

Question: Did you and Chris push for the romance in "Undending?"

Amanda: "Actually Christopher and I didn't push Sam and Teal'c's romance. We didn't actually even say anything to Rob Cooper about it. We just chose to play some really subtle moments that you could pick up on or or not pick up on. We wanted to leave it really ambiguous. But for Christopher and I personally, we felt that if you were stuck on a spaceship for that long, given the camaraderie between these two, the love, the genuine love that they have for each other, that it was a natural progression after that much time. Something would happen.

But we didn't push for it. We just chose to do some very subtle little moments, during the montage, and the scene after General Landry dies, which could be perceived as just really, really close and wonderful friends, or lovers, depending on how you to chose to see it.

So Chris and I just chose to play subtle moments. And it was moments that I don't even know if some of them appeared on camera. But looks between the two of us, like when he says that he's going to go back and fix the problem and he'll be the only one who will remember what happens, and we have this really knowing look between the two of us. That we played as if, you know, he's going to be the only one who remembers our romance, and I'll totally not remember it. And then when we were in the Gateroom afterwards, when everything is back to normal, we do another look. He gives me a look, and I'm (makes an inquisitive facial expression)...what does that mean? We just chose to play subtle moments. We felt that it made sense. And because it's fun (laughs)."
