February 21, 2009: Fond Remembrances and a BIG Guest Blogger Announcement!

Whenever my career draws to its inevitable conclusion, I’ll be able to reflect back on the many fond memories of my time in “the business“. I‘ve had good times, bad times, and everything in between. That said, the high point for me were the years I spent working on Stargate: SG-1. They were memorable for a number of reasons, but chiefest among them were the incredibly talented and wonderfully generous people I was fortunate enough to collaborate with over the course of those seven years: my fellow writer-producers (especially Brad and Rob who gave us our first shot and showed us the ropes), the directors, the crew, and, of course, the cast - specifically, that core team of Richard Dean Anderson (Jack O’Neill), Amanda Tapping (Samantha Carter), Michael Shanks (Daniel Jackson), and Christopher Judge (Teal’c). These four were a pleasure to deal with both on and off the set and, in the ten years the show was on the air, they made fans of, not only the viewers at home, but the people they worked with as well. A couple of weeks back, I wrote: “If you want to get the real story and truly separate the princes from the pricks and the beauties from the bitches, then get to know the men and women who spend the greater part of their days on set with these people ...".

... I was exchanging emails with the lovely Amanda Tapping and I asked her whether she might be interested in doing a fan Q&A. Well, I’m happy to report that she’s more than happy to visit with us. And with production on Sanctuary’s second season poised to begin soon, she has a rare/brief window of calm before the inevitable storm. So…

If you’ve got questions for Amanda Tapping, start posting -- [NOTE: at Mr. Mallozzi's blog]. But please avoid duplicating questions that have already been asked. Be concise and let’s avoid burying Amanda under the inevitable avalanche of well-wishes and meandering queries.

Christopher Heyerdahl

As the Athosian Halling, actor Christopher Heyerdahl never gave any hint of the creepy within – and then Todd came along. In the latest issue, the man behind everyone’s favorite Wraith talks about his multi-dimensional character: “I’ve always said that Todd feels a brother in Sheppard. And Sheppard is the kind of guy that won’t acknowledge it publicly. He said things when they spent time together in that little cell that he would only say in private. In public, Sheppard’s always saying, “I don’t like that guy, I don’t trust that guy.” He protests too much – he’s Lady Macbeth, right?”
