Interview: Robert Carlyle Talks Stargate Universe Season 2, His Approach to Acting and Some Soccer
By Kevin Coll • August 2, 2010
I had the distinct pleasure of meeting and sitting down with legendary screen actor, Robert Carlyle at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con and man was it a treat. As many of you know I try to get informal and real with anyone I get to talk to on this site because of our mission to create a window into these talented entertainers lives. Robert was gracious enough not only to set us up for Season 2 of SGU and what to expect with his character, Dr. Nicolas Rush but also how he approaches characters in acting, the techniques he implores and finally what he does when he is not acting and working. One of the most interesting topics he discusses is his one the most emotional moments he has had in acting.
It was a real honor to sit down with one the most talented and real actors in the business today and something I will never forget. As far as SGU is concerned, Carlyle, told me that Season 2 will show us a bit more of Rush’s history but also how he finds more secrets of the ship. Lastly he and Col. Young will have some heart to heart moments off world this season that he says, “is some the best two episodes of this season.” Be vary that some of the information is spoiler-ish so feel free to fast forward if you choose but consider yourself warned.
I also got a chance to talk to series producer, Robert Cooper, briefly while waiting for my interview with Carlyle to begin and he told me that “this season we find the bridge to the ship, and there will be more aliens and this type of things explored within in the series but also you really get to see what the true mission of the Destiny really was or is.”
Season 2 of Stargate Universe is already halfway done shooting and will premiere this October on Syfy. Season 1 of SGU is now available on Blu-ray and DVD at your local retailer.
We will be posting two more interviews with Ming Na and David Blue over the next couple of weeks. As of now enjoy one the best interviews we have done on this site.
