TV SERIES HIGHLIGHTS: How did the first year for you pass?

Ming Na: Well, SG-1 ran ten years long, ATLANTIS five, said to me already at the beginning that Stargate Universe could likewise offer a good condition to spend there some years with my colleagues. There it actually is for the advantage for everyone, if one gets along with one another and fun has to divide this experience with the others.

Lou Diamond Phillips: With the shootings of a TV-series one is a long time away from the family and spends many hours per day at the set with the same people. We grew together very fast, because we have all a fundamental respect before each other as persons, independently of how we bring along much experience as actors. Everyone of us bring along also an enthusiasm for the work, which the work atmosphere does not only revalue, but also our achievement, because it comes from the heart… and that is it, which constitutes this oft-quoted "chemistry."

Louis Ferreira: Many of us have a vocational background in the theatre, and there this Zusammengehörigkeitsgefühl [kinship?] develops quite fast during the time of the samples. The beautiful is here the fact that I can rely on the fact that with the rotation the crew of everything prepared exemplary, everyone of the actors its part controlled and to can contribute something interesting even if the day is perhaps tired long and one. Much time for rehearsing before the actual trick does not remain. I must worry only about the fact that I mean part control. It is a genuine reward for me, if one looks at oneself and in the total output of our group so much more finds the scene later, than in the script is located.

MN: Robert, I gives you times a practical example, how runs in such a way with us with the daily rotation: Many scenes are most dramatic, and often it concerns life-threatening situations. It that during the trick irgindwas it happens is it happened sometimes that to something broken goes, falls down or e.g. which behind one down-dripped. Because one however in the theatre - where all live runs - is trained to continue nevertheless to remain focused and to nothing your looking plaything stop has to laugh continue to make we nevertheless, until the CUT comes, and then only begin we. We are already so far the fact that we supply ourselves with quasi a competition who “in” the scene remains longest, even if actually already lengthens died...

Stargate Universe - Tygh Runyan Interview

Interview with Tygh Runyan (Dr. Caine, SGU)

We know Tygh Runyan as "Dr. Caine" in Stargate Universe. When he presented his new movie "Road To Nowhere" at the annual Whistler Film Festival, we had the opportunity to ask him some question.

... Regarding stunt scenes, how far would you go or where would a stunt person would have to take over?

TR: I love fight scenes! I'll do everything regarding fights. I usually become good friends with the stunt coordinators on set. I think I annoy some of them though. I'm a black belt in aikido and have some mma experience, so I like to incorporate some of my own style into things. But mainly, the physicality and back-story of the character is paramount. So, if my character isn't trained in martial arts, but is a tough brawler it needs to look a certain way. Also, if I'm playing someone who doesn't know how to fight, but finds themselves in one, I want it to look messy and realistic, which can involve some risks that most stunt men aren't willing to take. For safety reasons, and because it's their job, they need it to be choreographed, but sometimes it just looks too planned out. I don't think I'd ever want to do a high fall or anything life threatening. I'll leave that stuff to the pros...

... Q. Now, playing this character for as long as you have, does anything about her still surprise you?

E. Deschanel: Yes, yes. I think I was surprised as she started to open up more. What I just love, this was a couple of seasons ago, but there was a scene where she asked Sweets to help her learn facial expressions because she’s kind
almost on the autistic spectrum, almost Aspbergery—not quite, but has some characteristics that fit into that. She doesn’t really understand how to read peoples’ emotions. I just love that she recognized that she didn’t know how to do this and she wanted to get better at it. I just love that.

I loved the Jersey Shore episode. That surprised me just how much Brennan had studied this culture of the guidos and how seriously she took it. In a way, things surprise me and in a way, things don’t. Because of course, she studied these guidos. Of course, she takes it very seriously as an anthropological study. She’s going to throw a guy the crab, doing a body building pose to scare someone away. It’s a lot of fun.
