Michael Shanks and Gail O'Grady from Living Out Loud

Interview with Michael Shanks–co-star of Stargate: SG-1

by Sara M. Harvey

Michael Shanks is a Canadian actor best known for his role as Dr. Daniel Jackson in the Stargate universe. He’s known universally as a nice guy, an ice hockey fan, and the lucky guy who married fanboy favorite Lexa Doig.

Of late, Michael has been in a number of high profile shows, including recurring guest roles in the Keifer Sutherland show 24 and the USA Network’s spy-thriller Burn Notice. His latest work includes co-starring in the Hallmark movie Living Out Loud (along with Gail O’Grady and airing May 8th at 9 p.m. and May 17th at 9 p.m. on the Hallmark Channel) and filming a television pilot titled The Eastmans (co-starring Donald Sutherland, Jacqueline Bisset, and Saffron Burrows).

Sara M. Harvey (author of The Convent of the Pure) spoke to Michael via telephone in late-April.

A brief excerpt:

SH: Wrapping up, where can we find you next on the big screen or television, aside from Living Out Loud? What’s your next big project?
MS: I finished a movie in November called Desperate Escape with Elisabeth Röhm. I just finished a pilot with Warner Brothers called The Eastmans with Donald Sutherland, Jacqueline Bisset, and Saffron Burrows that is about a family of doctors named “Eastman.” Donald and Jacqueline have five kids, and I play the best friend of one of the sons and I’m having an affair with Jacqueline Bisset.
