Alaina Huffman Video Interview STARGATE UNIVERSE and Kino 25: Drop the Sirs

by Steve 'Frosty' Weintraub
Posted: May 14th, 2010

If you’re a fan of Stargate Universe, you’re going to enjoy my video interview with Alaina Huffman. That’s because unlike a typical junket interview that lasts four to five minutes and you can only scratch the surface, yesterday afternoon I sat down with 1st Lt. Tamara Johansen (who she plays on SGU) for an extended interview. During our conversation she talked about how things are going on season two and what it’s really like on set, conventions, Comic-Con, twitter, being a series regular for the first time, what happened when she told the producers she was pregnant, and I also asked some questions people sent me on twitter. If you’re watching SGU, you’re going to like the behind the scenes stories.

Also, the folks at MGM have given me a new Kino to premiere and it’s the 25th one called “Drops the Sirs”. The Kino is a conversation between Greer (Jamil Walker Smith) and Scott (Matthew Scott) and it concerns a recent episode where someone was left on a planet. [This kino video at the link above.]

Amanda Tapping Still Craves The Stage

by Bryan Reesman on May.14, 2010


At the Syfy Channel Upfront in March, I chatted up Sanctuary star Amanda Tapping for a story about Season 3 that will appear on AOL’s TV Squad page in the near future. (FYI, Season 2 arrives on video on June 15, 2010.) I also managed to squeeze in a little bit about Stargate and her non-Sanctuary projects.

Here’s a short ‘n’ sweet Q&A about topics unrelated to her hit show. It is laced with the actress’ usual humility and humor. Simply put, Tapping is ├╝ber-cool.

A brief excerpt:

You’ve done plenty of things outside of sci-fi. Are there any performances that you think are underrated in your career?
You know what? I feel like my career has progressed slow and steady. Things that I thought were really good back in the day, maybe not so much [now]. I look back at my work and think there’s a certain subconsciousness to it. So no, I don’t think so. There’s a movie I did called Dancing Trees, which I just thought was a really sweet film. I love the director so much. I don’t have a big part in it, and I die — well, I must say. That’s a good question. Damn!

SGU's hot doc has got some spoilers for you

By Patrick Lee
ON 05/14/10


Syfy's Stargate Universe has amped up the action and taken the story into intriguing directions in the second half of the first season, and smokin' hot star Alaina Huffman (who plays Lt. Tamara Johansen) teased us with the adventures to come in an exclusive interview.

SGU airs Fridays at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

Huffman also talked a bit about her return appearance tonight on The CW's Smallville, reprising the role of Dinah Lance/Black Canary, in the season finale that airs at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

A brief excerpt:

It was notable right from the start of the second half of the season that the action and adventure element of the show had really been amped up. Was that a deliberate choice, you think?
Huffman: The season itself was completed almost by the time we aired. We wrapped October 28th, and it aired October 3rd. ... So, yes, I think the intent was to introduce the characters, develop the characters, and then put them to work. And that seems to be the way that it's gone.

EXCLUSIVE: Alaina Huffman Talks Smallville and Stargate Universe Season Finales

May 13th, 2010


... Finally, since SyFy is currently airing the final season one episodes of Stargate Universe and the actress has already shot most of season two, we asked her to give us a sneak peak at what fans can expect going into this season's finale and leading up into the second season of the show.
"Right now I think Sabotage just aired and so every week is a big sort of, what's going on?" Huffman explained. "Then we go to another planet and there is that subplot of all of us being on the ship, all of us getting along and living together. The first season was really about how do we get home? The second season is more involved with life on the ship and it's not really about trying to get home because we don't know if we are going to get home? So now we're about a third through the way of shooting the second season and some great stuff is going to happen. The Lucian Alliance will make an appearance so we've got little hints of the Stargate past integrated into season one and going into season two..."

If circumstances thrust you onto a runaway spaceship with little-to-no hope of returning you home to Earth, you might freak out just a little, too. Question: What could make you freak out even more? Answer: suffering vivid hallucinations on the aforementioned spaceship. Tamara Johansen (Alaina Huffman) quarantines the folks who are seeing things that aren't really there while trying to get to the bottom of the mystery ailment.
