Sanctuary - Robin Dunne Audio Interview


Robin Dunne Audio Interview

Co-star of the hit Sci-fi channel's Sanctuary Robin Dunne, who plays Dr. Will Zimmerman, was kind enough to give us some of his time.

We talk of uniqueness of Sanctuary as a series and as a production. We also talk about the fun of an actor having to use his imagination with the green screen (which is about 70% of the show!) and how it compares with the skills and imagination of the effects crew.

Stargate Atlantis - TV Zone Special # 82 - Joe Flanigan Interview Excerpt

At Visimag (from TV Zone Special # 82):

(Please follow the link for the complete interview excerpt.)


Feature: Stargate Atlantis

It was a new season, and another change in the command of Atlantis, but for Colonel John Sheppard it was business as usual ...

When actor Joe Flanigan filmed the Season Four Stargate Atlantis finale The Last Man, his character Colonel John Sheppard was just that, the last man alive left on the Atlantis base. A malfunction involving the Stargate sent the colonel 48,000 years into the Future, where all his friends and colleagues were gone and the city lay at the bottom of a dried-up ocean. In the episode, Sheppard must, among other things, fight his way through a sandstorm as well as listen to a hologram of Dr McKay recount events after the colonel disappeared back in his own time. It was an unforgettable experience for Sheppard and Flanigan.
"The Last Man was an interesting story to work on and kind of cool, too," recalls the actor, who is enjoying the Vancouver sun while in between takes on Season Five of Atlantis. "I was a little worried when I first read the script, mainly because there was a ton of exposition where David Hewlett's [McKay] character explains everything that has happened over the past 40,000 years or whatever it was, but I think the episode turned out well. Believe it or not, I actually haven't seen a final cut of it yet but, as season cliffhangers go, it was a good one..."

... "I'll sometimes read certain parts of our scripts and wonder, `How are we going to pull this off?'" notes Flanigan. "However, these guys always manage to somehow do that. Between the art department guys, visual effect people and all the other people who work on this programme, we figure out together how to do what has to be done. From there, it's just a matter of committing to what's on the written page and going forth, which was the case at the start of this season with Search and Rescue."
