Atlantis' Luttrell Juggles Momhood

Rachel Luttrell, who plays Teyla in SCI FI Channel's original series Stargate Atlantis, told SCI FI Wire that she's a new mother in real life, as is her character in the coming fifth season, and that presents its own challenges.


Luttrell said motherhood has changed her, and she's using those changes to inform how she plays Teyla. "It's made her all the more strong and willing to go out there and do whatever she needs to do to make his world safer," she said. At the same time, she added: "You're incredibly vulnerable."

With the Wraith hybrid Michael (returning guest star Connor Trinneer) pursuing Teyla's baby for his genetic gifts, that vulnerability seems likely to be exploited in upcoming episodes. But overall, Luttrell said she's delighted that the writers chose to incorporate her pregnancy into the show. "They did a wonderful job," she said. "I think it made for a stronger, more colorful character. And it's made her all the more powerful and multi-dimensional this year."

Stargate: Atlantis - A Day At The Office

Thursday, May 22

by Captain

Walking around Bright Lights Studios in Vancouver you quickly understand the massive scale of production that a major Sci Fi TV show requires to get to air. 9/10ths of the entire studio are currently turned over to Stargate: Atlantis, and with a combination of permanent and 'swing' sets on several massive sound stages, the sounds of activity are constant. One day an 'indoor' forest will exist next to a village, the next day a spaceship will spring into existence.


Months of work for each Episode

In another building, the costume department is entirely self-contained, 95% of all the costumes on the show are built from scratch - including 'building up' of alien leather. There are so many costumes made for the show that only the ones used for the current season can be kept on site.

One interesting surprise - the boots used on Atlantis are for the most part, Blundstones - they often have a special covering on their soles designed to reduce wear and tear on the sets and to reduce noise.

In a small red brick building past 'The Village' stage, the visual effects department gets about two months from go to woah on each episode - (whilst working on about 12 episodes at a time) to produce the 40-50 vfx shots required for each 44 minutes of Stargate: Atlantis.


Season 4 of Stargate: Atlantis will be coming to DVD in Oz on Sep 3. In the meantime, catch the next episode of Stargate:Atlantis on SCI FI, right here !
