Exclusive Interview: FADPOV Talks With Ryan Robbins (Part 2)


FADPOV: What’s the craziest costume you’ve ever had to wear on the set?

Ryan: Wow. Probably not the craziest but the most intense and least comfortable costume was when we shot the first episode of the mini series for Battlestar Galactica. I played the old man and it took six hours in prosthetics to age me. To have the walk and the suit… those suits are really tight!

Ladon’s costume in Atlantis. I mean, god bless the costume department, but it’s one of the most uncomfortable costumes ever.


FADPOV: Finally, from all the actors you’ve over the years, who has kind of stood out as being the most genuine?

Ryan: Edward James Olmos is a shining example of how to behave on set. He’s an icon! He is a great mentor, he is incredibly loving and kind, and he cares very much about whatever projects he’s working on. Every time I’ve met him and spoken to him he’s been absolutely lovely. He commands respect, and gives you the opportunity to be respected, but at the same time he has no problem expressing his displeasure in something because he doesn’t do it in a petulant way. He does it in a very dignified way.


As far as great guys, everyone will tell you about David Hewlett and Paul McGillion. And I would say that my personal experience with each and every one of the cast and crew of Battlestar Galactica is exceptional, more so than any show I’ve ever worked on. Everybody. The Stargate Atlantis guys are also just awesome.

On Board The Daedalus - Sci Fi Pi Visits The Set Of Stargate: Atlantis

Friday, May 16

by Captain

Ben Browder holds court from the Captain's Chair.

One of the coolest things about getting to go on set of a major Sci Fi show is sharing it with SCI FI fans.

With our visit on board The Daedalus, we could get right up close and see the kind of detail that you never get to see on air, the kind of 'behind the scenes' details that really define the show, but is never really revealed through transmission.

The first thing you notice about The Daedalus set of Stargate SG-1 and Stargate: Atlantis is that as a space ship, it hasn't been created to look that futuristic - obviously, it's made to look like it was built in the present time, and shares a great deal of the surprisingly analogue technology that you'd find in any state of the art aircraft carrier. The buttons are switches, they aren't just glass panels, there's plumbing fittings and there's more than just a passing nod to the warning labels and signs that you see in the modern US. Navy.

Obviously, however, there are some differences. As you'd expect with Asgard technology!

Things like view screens are in fact that - modern LCDs that work, not just pictograms. The perspex 'map/star chart' boards are exactly as they are on film.

Atlantis Will Have New Sets

SCI FI Wire got a peek at new sets for SCI FI Channel's original series Stargate Atlantis in Vancouver, Canada, and gleaned a few details of the ships that will appear in the show's upcoming fifth season.

On May 15, a group of reporters toured the main Atlantis sets, an "alien village" set where filming was underway and two new ship sets at Bridge Studios. One ship, still under construction, was described as a "Traveller ship." It was a small set, very dark and claustrophobic. The interior bulkheads were flat black and studded with all varieties of mechanical junk. Bundles of cable hung everywhere.


The second, however, was a standing set, meaning viewers can expect to see it repeatedly. This set appears to be a new model of Wraith Hive Ship, including a distinctly insectile throne for the Wraith Queen. It's considerably larger than the Traveller ship set and more elaborate than earlier Wraith ships.


Stargate Atlantis' 20-episode season fifth season will include the series' benchmark 100th episode.
