Stargate Universe - Space Channel - Jamil Walker Smith Audio Interview

At Canada's Space Channel:

Interview with Jamil Walker-Smith from SGU

Pix Princss | 11/6/2009

Hey all, I have put up the podcast interview with Jamil Walker-Smith who plays Sgt. Ronald Greer on Stargate Universe. We talked about hugging in space suits, on Sgt. Greer’s issue with Dr. Rush, on Robert Carlyle’s lectures on Scotland, and where how he want his character to evolve. Listen Here!

In the interest of full disclosure, this was the first audio interview I’ve edited, so be warned it’s gonna have a few hiccups throughout.

Jamil was hilarious. I had to edit out the part where he promises to take us out partying in Vancouver, but here’s hoping he makes it to the SPACE HQ for a cameo on InnerSPACE!

Sadly, he wouldn’t divulge any crazy dish for us on the show, but he did want us to leave you with this Bjork video, which reminds him of hugging it out in a space suit.

Stargate Universe airs Fridays at 10ET/7PT on SPACE. Canadians can view it in a 7-day catchup window on after the broadcast.

Is Stargate Universe's Dr. Rush evil or misunderstood?

By Kathie Huddleston
ON 11/06/09

You've got to wonder if Dr. Nicholas Rush (Robert Carlyle), the single-minded genius on Syfy's SGU: Stargate Universe, is on the right show. Maybe he hopped over from Caprica before anyone noticed and now it's too late. However it happened, Carlyle's character is so morally ambiguous we don't know if we can trust him.

Looking at his deeds just in the six episodes that have aired so far, you really have to wonder: Is he evil? Maybe not evil like Darth Vader or the Master, but evil like Battlestar Galactica's Gaius Baltar or Lost's Ben.

In the very first episode, Rush claims he didn't dial Earth because of the danger to Earth in dialing from a volatile planet. OK maybe. But he also sent dozens of people into an unknown situation that just happened to be the dilapidated Ancient ship, the Destiny.

Over and over again, we question the motives of this Machiavellian scientist, who too often seems willing to sacrifice people to make sure he can continue his life's work, which includes exploring the secrets of the Stargate and now the Destiny.

Executive producer Brad Wright has said people aboard the Destiny are "in a position where we have to trust the son of a bitch who put us in this situation, because he has a lot of the knowledge that we need just to stay alive."

It shouldn't surprise us that the amazing Carlyle has been so convincing as Rush, considering he's played everything from a policeman to a psychopath to a male stripper to a James Bond villain to a cannibal to Adolf Hitler! There's no denying the Scottish actor has range, and it's range he's put to good use as Dr. Nicholas Rush...

Stargate Universe/Sanctuary - GateWorld: Michael Shanks Audio Interview

At GateWorld:


GateWorld Talks With Michael Shanks

Almost like the dependability of a Swiss watch, the staff here at GateWorld loves to sit down with Michael Shanks every six months or so if they get the chance. Another occasion presented itself this past August, when we traveled to Chicago to talk to him during Creation Entertainment's Official Stargate Convention.

While our talks with Michael aren't always lengthy due to time constraints in a convention setting, they are always opinionated and informative. Our latest conversation with the actor is no exception.

In this interview, Michael discusses his views on the re-cut "Children of the Gods," his upcoming guest role on Sanctuary, and his impressions of Stargate Universe based on his time on the sets. Always the diplomat -- much like his peacemaker counterpart on SG-1 -- Shanks talks candidly about fan reaction to the series.

This interview runs almost 13 minutes and is available in audio. It's also transcribed [at the link above]!
