Stargate Atlantis - The New Zealand Herald: The Girl From Atlantis

From The New Zealand Herald (Auckland, NZ):

The girl from Atlantis

5:00AM Sunday August 03, 2008

By Ann Newbery

...The Canadian, who has been acting since she was 6, says it has been a refreshing change of pace. "Lots of people are used to seeing me as Kaylee from Firefly, who is very innocent and naive and sweet. She's loving and kind of wears her heart on her sleeve. And Dr Keller is not that. She has secrets. She is reserved. She has a lot of anxiety about her. She doesn't really warm to people right away. But she also has that same quality that Kaylee had, where she's pretty much friends with everybody," she explains.


"I think Keller knows in her heart that she should not pursue her relationship with Ronon but it's just this physical attraction. But she has a very intellectual attraction with McKay. And I think she understands him in a way that a lot of other people don't.

When he's complaining and going on and on about how terrible things are and how sick he is or whatever she just kind of has a way of dissipating that in him and going 'okay, you know what, Rodney? Just chill out.' So yeah, with those two she's eventually going to have to make a choice."

Stargate Atlantis - GateWorld: FULL COVERAGE: The Daedalus Variations

At GateWorld:

FULL COVERAGE: The Daedalus Variations


Episode Guide

A brief excerpt from Production section the Episode Guide:

..."Those differences from one reality to the next are seen "just outside of the Daedalus, for the most part. Although there is one important interaction that takes place on the Daedalus: when we jump to another reality, we get boarded. I won't say more than that! But we do end up having to win back our Daedalus from an alien species."

"... It's a wild romp. It's pretty much a one-off adventure story that gets the team into trouble and gets them out at the end. But it's a lot of fun. It's a fun script."

(Writer Alan McCullough, in an interview with GateWorld)
