Stargate Atlantis - Season 5 - Amanda Tapping in "several episodes"

From the Hollywood Reporter:

[The SciFi Channel has greenlit 13 episodes of Sanctuary. Please follow the link for the complete article.]


...The series, produced by Stage 3 Media in association with the Sci Fi Channel, is slated to begin production in March. While, by most estimates, the writers strike will be over by then, that is not a factor for the show, whose production is strike-proof because it is based in Canada. Sci Fi's "Stargate Atlantis" is in a similar position and will begin filming its fifth season in a couple of weeks. Tapping, who co-starred on that series last season, will return for several

Sci Fi Channel has greenlighted "Sanctuary," the first television series to use live-action actors against virtual sets in the style of the features "300" and "Sin City."

Sci Fi has ordered a full 13-episode season of the new scripted drama series, which originated online as the first high-definition sci-fi Web series.

"Sanctuary" hails from the "Stargate SG-1" trio of star Amanda Tapping, writer-producer Damian Kindler and producer-director Martin Wood, who are executive producing the series with Sam Egan.



Congratulations to Sanctuary!

Amanda Tapping Part 3

Posted by Tony Tellado at 1/24/2008 12:00 AM

Here's more of my complete transcript of my interview with Amanda Tapping of Sanctuary and Stargate Atlantis and SG-1




"We shot an episode towards the end of the season of Stargate Atlantis called Trio, which is basically Jewell Staite, David Hewlett and I. I haven't had so much fun in such a long time. We had a blast. He's always been a treat to work with from his early guest appearances on SG-1, he's a great actor to work with. Jewell brings a
whole another aspect. And the three of us together, is kind of lethal. It's amazing that we made it through takes without laughing our heads off."

"When Ben (Browder) and Claudia (Black) came into SG-1, I had been away and missed a few episodes when I had my daughter. So I came into this whole new show. I felt out of my element. "Hey, who are these people, muscling in our turf?: And my back got up a little bit to be honest, like,"Hey who are you guys? Wait a second, didn't you have
your own show?" And then going over to Atlantis where I was supremely aware that it was a possibility that people would be a little threatened by me coming over. So I was very, very careful on how I handled it. I made sure that everyone felt extremely comfortable that I was there and it was their show. I wasn't going to have a huge huge part in it but I was trying to find my way. You know be very quiet about it. It is interesting because I have played both sides of the coin."
