Stargate Universe - Stargate Planet: Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman (Pvt. Decker) Interview

At Stargate Planet:



Interview with Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman

A brief excerpt: Hello, Mr. Bowyer-Chapman. Thanks for the interview opportunity. You're playing a character named Darren Becker on Syfy's new series Stargate Universe. Did you initially audition for that character or did you initially have a different role in mind?
JBC: Actually, it was a long casting process for me. Over the course of about 2 months I read for 3 different characters. Initially I went in to read for MSGT Greer (played by Jamil Walker Smith). A few weeks later they called me back to read for Sgt.Curtis (played by Bradley Stryker) and finally the following day I read for Airman Darren Becker who I ended up landing. At first I was really wanting to play Greer, but after seeing what Jamil has done with him, I couldn't imagine better casting. Sgt.Curtis was written as a larger role than Becker, but I've actually ended up filming a lot more episodes as Becker than I would have had I booked Curtis, so for that I'm grateful.

Sanctuary at SPACE

Pix Princss | 11/19/2009

Small disclosure: I have a total girl-crush on Amanda Tapping. Not only is she foxy and smart, but she lives and breathes sci-fi. As any one who's met her can tell you is as lovely as she seems. I kind of want her to be my big sister, but I was too shy to ask. She visited us at SPACE yesterday with her partners in crime, Sanctuary co-Creators Damian Kindler and Martin Wood. It was kind of hard to concentrate, and as you can probably tell by the frequency of the Facebook and Twitter updates, it was all kinds of awesome.

... Amanda is going to host tonight's episode of InnerSPACE tonight, discussing Eureka and the upcoming episode of Sanctuary, which she directed. Very cool!

And before I forget, the three Sanctuary creators have given us three signed scripts of 'End of Nights Pt. 1' to put into a contest! So enter now for this great chance to win some excellent Sanctuary legacy material.'
