Stargate - Stargate Official Magazine Issue 34 - Louis Ferreira, David Blue, Andy Mikita Interviews

At Titan Magazines:

Stargate Magazine Issue 34




The Official Stargate Magazine is out now on a newsstand near you! The latest issue features a wealth of commentaries and conversations with the stars of Stargate Universe, including co-producer and director Andy Mikita, exclusive concept art, and the latest news from the set. Read on for all the details!


Work has already started on season two of Stargate Universe with the opening episode, Intervention, being directed by none other than the series star, Robert Carlyle! The titles for the next four episodes have also been revealed: Aftermath, Awakening, Pathogen, and Cloverdale. You can read the whole story and check out all the latest from the whole Stargate franchise in the latest issue's 'Advanced Telemetry' news section.



“[In Young and Rush] you have two people who absolutely need and rely on one another and who can’t get back home without each other. That’s obviously creating great friction and conflict.” – Louis Ferreira

Playing Colonel Everett Young is no easy task, and in the latest issue of The Official Stargate Magazine, actor Louis Ferreria reveals the reasons behind his character’s conflict with scientist Nicholas Rush, the life Young had before his time aboard the Destiny, and why he wants to be like Sonny Crockett in Miami Vice.

“I’m the luckiest guy in the world; I’ve been given the opportunity to shoot the pilot and finish the season as well.” – Andy Mikita

Andy Mikita has been in the Stargate business for over a decade, having started as a first assistant director on Stargate SG-1’s Children of the Gods. Mikita is now director and co-producer of Stargate Universe, and in an exclusive interview with The Official Stargate Magazine, he tells us about shooting his episodes, from the Vancouver soundstages to the deserts of Mexico, and everything else in-between.


“We did some amazing training at the start, including with firearms. I had never fired a gun before or even held one. It was intense and I loved it.” – Julia Benson

After a guest spot on Stargate Atlantis, Julia Benson jumped at the chance to play series regular Lt. Vanessa James on Stargate Universe. We sit down and chat with Benson about what it’s like to play the tough Lieutenant with a softer side, shooting the “epic” season opener Air, and the physical attraction between her character and Lt. Matthew Scott.

Stargate Universe - Stargate Planet: Patrick Gilmore Interview

Interview with Patrick Gilmore

about Stargate Universe and other projects

We know Patrick Gilmore as “Dale Volker“ in Stargate Universe and we’re grateful that he took some time off his busy schedule to answer a few career related questions for our German website visitors.

A brief excerpt: How did you prepare for your Stargate Universe audition?
PG: That was back in January of 2009. Actors audition so much that at one point they all bleed into one and you can’t remember specifics. My prep for SGU would have been as followed:

11am - Call from Agent “Audition tomorrow.”
4pm - Receive email with portion of script and other audition details.
6pm - Stop procrastinating and read audition. Play with moments and dialogue, all while cleaning my house (avoidance behaviour.)
8pm - Long dinner (more avoidance behaviour.)
10pm – After watching some TV I would have blocked out my audition. Pacing my living room, yelling, mumbling, getting online to research certain plot points and styles of the TV show. The detail gets exhausting.


2am – I go to sleep anxious with the audition material lying beside my pillow.
9am – I wake, read the audition, shower and perform the audition in the shower.
10am – Drive to audition, still rehearsing.
11am – Audition.
That’s probably what happened for the first audition. Then there was a call-back and I do specifically remember that last audition with Rob, Brad and Andy in the room.

Humour in this ‘House’

By Greg David


Silly, scrumptious SyFy hit finally bows in Canada

Saul Rubinek, Joanne Kelly and Eddie McClintock

You’d be excused if – at first glance – you thought Warehouse 13 was a lot like The X-Files.

After all, the SyFy series, which debuts Season 1 on Citytv April 23 (in the crappy 10 p.m. timeslot, I might add, almost 10 months after it bowed in the U.S.), follows two government agents as they “snag, bag and tag” mysterious artefacts, supernatural relics and fantastic objects from around the world.

Myka (Joanne Kelly) is straitlaced and by-the-book, while Pete (Eddie McClintock) is off-the-cuff and willing to charge in without waiting for backup.
“Mulder and Scully – are you kidding me?” enthuses Kelly from the show’s set, today a junk yard in Toronto’s suburbs. She’s clearly flattered with comparison. “The major difference between us and them is that we’re not strictly a drama. We much more walk the line of comedy...”

Bones - TV Guide Canada: Roll them ‘Bones’- Kathy Reichs Interview

Roll them ‘Bones’

By Greg David


Author Kathy Reichs pens her first ‘Bones’ episode


For the uninitiated, Bones is inspired by the adventures of a real-life woman.

Kathy Reichs divides her time between Montreal and Charlotte, N.C., where she is a forensic anthropologist for the Laboratoire des Sciences Judiciares et de Médecine Légale in Quebec and a professor of anthropology at the University of North Carolina.

When she’s not doing those two gigs, she writes novels starring one Temperance Brennan that are based on her life. Those tales served as the jumping-off point for Bones, Fox’s prime-time hit procedural.

Five seasons in, Reichs finally took pen to paper and wrote her first Bones episode, called “The Witch in the Wardrobe.” In it, Brennan (Emily Deschanel) and Booth (David Boreanaz) are called to a burned-out cabin, where the skeletons of a modern-day witch and one from the days of the Salem Witch Trials have been discovered...

Video Blog: Goa’uld Symbiote

May 4, 2010 by David Read

We’re starting off our week with a brand new video blog, this time featuring perhaps the most significant villain ever to Stargate lore — the Goa’uld! These parasitic serpents evolved on an alien world in the Milky Way, eventually taking primitive Unas as hosts and deciphering the Stargate to enter the galaxy.

Check out the little guy which may be yours this summer!
