Stargate Universe - - GateWorld: James Bamford Audio Interview

At GateWorld:


GateWorld Talks with James Bamford

After years of working with the team at Stargate to bring you interviews and exclusive features, you eventually make a few friends. Undoubtedly one of the closer relationships we have built is with SG-1 fight coordinator and SGA / SGU stunt coordinator James "BAMBAM" Bamford.

Despite contributing to the site through the "Ask BAMBAM" forum thread and his blog, we have never taken the time to do a sit-down interview with the man. Why? His work on Stargate is extremely visual and we've been planning on shooting a video documentary of his work for years.

So until that time comes -- and it will -- we bring you this piece!

In this exclusive we learn of BAMBAM's initial years in acting and stunts, the character and mindset of a performer and preparing various SGU cast members for their intense roles, among many other topics. We talk about a stunt man's immense pride in his work, and the life and death events involved with the job.

This interview runs over 54 minutes and is available in audio. It's also transcribed {at the link above]!
