Stargate Atlantis - Stargate Planet: Janina Gavankar Interview

From Stargate Planet:



A brief excerpt:

Interview with Janina Gavankar

Stargate-Planet, April 2008

Janina Gavankar was born on November 29th, 1980 in Illinois, USA and she's best known for her role as "Papi" in the tv series "The L-Word". We will see her as "Sergeant "Dusty Mehra" in the fifth season of Stargate Atlantis and we're grateful that Ms. Gavankar allowed us to ask a few career related questions.

**snippage** How did you prepare to play your Stargate character? Did you watch previous episodes? Would you consider yourself a "fan" of Stargate?

JG: I'm a fan of sci fi in general. It was hard for me not to have a full on geek-spazz-out moment as I toured the sets. We went through gun training on our first day. I tell you, the amount of power and fire that comes out of a full load P-90? That gets you RIGHT in the zone.

Continuum Expands SG-1

Brad Wright, writer and executive producer of Stargate: Continuum, told SCI FI Wire that making a Stargate feature film is very different from making series episodes. "We've done so many two-parters, you'd think it would be easy to just make it longer," said Wright, who spoke to SCI FI Wire following a press screening of the direct-to-DVD film in Vancouver, B.C., on May 14.

But a feature, Wright explained, has a very different structure.

"It's much more fun in some ways to do a movie, because the story can evolve the way it's supposed to. It doesn't have to owe anything to the episode before or the episode after. That was the fun part, to actually write a movie and not just a long episode."


With more time and more resources to work with, Wright and the producers and cast of Stargate: Continuum have taken their world and characters in new directions. They've also pushed the envelope for what the Stargate franchise can do as MGM considers whether to do more movies or create a third series. Stargate: Continuum launches on DVD and Blu-Ray on July 29.
