A brief excerpt:

Interview with Musetta Vander

Stargate-Planet, July 2008

We know Musetta Vander in the tv show Stargate as "Shaunac" and we're grateful that Musetta Vander took some time off her busy schedule to answer a few career related questions for our German website visitors. In 2000, you made a guest appearance on Stargate SG-1 in the episode "Crossroads" as "Shaunac". What's stuck in your memory regarding working on the Stargate set?

MV: They made me feel welcome right away. Everyone was very friendly and worked really fast and easily together. We had a lot of fun too as Peter, the director, was a jokester and it made for lots of amusement on set. He would say funny things like: "And now with fire in your loins you look at Chris and say……" just before he would yell action. Which made it difficult to keep a straight face at times. You had a lot of scenes together with Chris Judge and Chris Judge is known for doing pranks or jokes. Any fun stories to share?

MV: Chris is a great guy and I had a wonderful time working with him. In my death scene he had a feather and was tickling my nose while I was trying to lie motionless pretending to be dead. At first I thought it was a bug or something, and I tried desperately not to flinch. I continued with great restraint to not move, as the pesky "bug" didn't seem to want to leave my nose alone. Finally couldn't stand it anymore and opened my eyes, only to realize I was a victim of one of their many on set pranks. I can't remember if Peter put him up to it, or if he came up with this one by himself.

What 2 Watch

Stargate Atlantis:

"The Daedalus Variations" (SCI FI, 10:00-11pm)

You have to admire a show that is willing to title an episode "The Daedalus Variations." That's saying "We're sci-fi, deal with it." That's one of the great things about Stargate Atlantis, it's the only space opera on the air right now. It has aliens and spaceships and – well – stargates. I am not a regular viewer of this series, but I happened upon the panel for the show during Comic-Con – and I'm here to tell you there are a whole damn lot of Stargate Atlantis fans. It's a quality show with great effects and a fun cast – including the recently added regulars of Robert Picardo and Jewel Staite. If you have a hankering for some straightforward sci-fi action adventure, this is appointment TV.
