SDCC 2010 exclusive: Amanda Tapping previews 'Sanctuary' Season 3

by Curt Wagner on 07.27.10

Helen Magnus, Will Zimmerman, Henry Foss, Kate Freelander and the Big Guy will go on an "epic journey" in Season 3 of "Sanctuary."

Epic is really the only way the Syfy series can go after the extraordinary cliffhanger that ended Season 2: Big Bertha set off a series of giant tidal waves that could flood the world.

"It's quite mysterious actually what happens," producer-star and sometimes director Amanda Tapping told me at San Diego Comic Con, saying they will take some time to figure out the situation, "because we don't actually understand what happened."

The resolution of the Big Bertha fallout is only one of a few major story arcs this season, which consists of 20 episodes instead of just 13 like the first two seasons. It's an epic season indeed for the groundbreaking series.

Tapping and I sat down for a chat after the "Sanctuary" panel where a funny Season 2 recap/Season 3 preview was presented, and it was also announced that Polly Walker from "Caprica" will guest star on "Sanctuary."

Enjoy the two-part interview with Tapping and the preview, and watch for my exclusive interviews with Robin Dunne and Ryan Robbins.

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.

SDCC 2010 EXCLUSIVE: Sanctuary Season 3 Cast Interviews

July 28th, 2010

One of Syfy's hit series is about to get bigger and better for its upcoming third season. We reported back in December that Syfy handed out a third-season order to Sanctuary, which will return to the Syfy airwaves later this year. The show was given a 20-episode order (as opposed to the first two seasons' 13-episode orders) and the show has returned to San Diego for Comic-Con to promote the popular series. We spoke to stars Amanda Tapping (Helen Magnus), Ryan Robbins (Henry Foss) along with executive producer Damian Kindler at the Con.

Sanctuary, which also stars Robin Dunne, Christopher Heyerdahl, Emilie Ullerup and Agam Darshi, will return to the SyFy network this fall, airing on Friday nights.

David Blue Video Interview STARGATE UNIVERSE

by Steve 'Frosty' Weintraub

Posted:August 1st, 2010

At this year’s Comic-Con, I was able to speak with a few cast members of Syfy’s hit show Stargate Universe. As I’ve said a few times in previous articles, I never watched any of the previous Stargate shows, but I’ve been very impressed with SGU (Stargate Universe). Since the show has only aired one full season and it doesn’t return until late September, I really recommend renting/buying the first season and catching up. It’s absolutely worth it.

Anyway, over the next few days I’ll be posting my SGU interviews, and up first is David Blue. If you watch SGU, you know Blue plays Eli Wallace – the former slacker that’s a computer/mathematics/video game expert. During the interview, Blue talks about being back at Comic-Con, his addiction to twitter, how has filming been going on season two and what can he reveal, how he prepares for each episode, and how has season two been different from season one.

SDCC 2010 exclusive: Ming-Na on 'Stargate Universe

by Curt Wagner on 07.29.10

Ming-Na cracked up "Stargate Universe" fans during the Syfy series' panel at San Diego Comic Con over the weekend, talking about her "iPrecious" and "getting stoned."

Of course that's a joke; she means when her "SGU" character, Camille Wray, uses the communication stones to go back to Earth. I was able to chat with her a little more about what's in store for Camille in Season 2 right after the panel--which included Robert Carlyle, Alaina Huffman, David Blue and exec producer and panel moderator Robert Cooper.

"I don't have magic denim shorts that appear when I transform back from being a werewolf," Robbins joked at San Diego Comic Con, telling me that Henry, both as a werewolf and as the man, will have a lot to do in Season 3 of "Sanctuary..."

... Robbins talks more about making Robin Dunne uncomfortable, Henry and [at the link above] you can watch the entire SDCC "Sanctuary" panel with Robbins, Amanda Tapping, Robin Dunne, Damian Kindler and moderator Josh Gates from "Destination Truth."
