GateWorld talks with Corin Nemec
t has been more than five years since Jonas Quinn departed Stargate Command to help his people, the Langarans, rebuild a peaceful and prosperous civilization. During that time, fans of the character -- who was a regular member of SG-1 during Season Six -- have made actor Corin Nemec one of GateWorld's most requested interviews ever.
Now we're excited to finally bring you a special video interview with Corin! We caught up with the actor at Creation Entertainment's official Stargate convention in Vancouver, and talked about Corin's casting on the show, his decision to bulk up for the role, and the challenge of replacing a well-loved character. He also answers the question of whether he thinks Jonas's story is complete.
GateWorld's video interview with Corin runs approximately 15 minutes, and requires QuickTime 7.0 or higher. The interview is also available at GateWorld Play!
A brief excerpt:
GW: So when you look back on that experience now, the whole season that you spent there -- and you did an episode before and a few episodes after -- what stands out in your mind when you remember Stargate?
CN: It's interesting because working on Stargate, it's as cool as the show is to watch. The whole adventure of it, all the adventures that you go on, the obstacles you have to get over, the predicaments that you get caught in, the great writing, the dialogue, the different relationships. What I remember is I feel like I was on SG-1. You know what I mean?
As silly as that sounds, that's what it feels like. Because you film all those scenes you do, everything you watch on the show, you actually physically get to do. So it's like you lived it, in a weird way.
