STARGATE UNIVERSE - MY FANBASE: Elyse Levesque Interview

"Stargate Universe" ended this month with the finale of the second season. We had the chance to interview Elyse Levesque, who plays Chloe, shortly before that and she talks about her thoughts and working on the show. With David Blue she's the second person from the main cast of this scifi show we could talk to...


... My Fanbase: Playing in a scifi show can probably be very demanding for actors. Is there something you wouldn't say or do in terms of storyline even in a high quality program?

Elyse Levesque: There are moments every now and again, where what is scripted doesn't ring true to the character. We were fortunate that our writers and producers were open to hearing our thoughts, and collaborating with us...

DOCTOR WHO - SFX MAGAZINE: Matthew Graham Interview ("The Rebel Flesh")

Life On Mars and Ashes To Ashes writer Matthew Graham makes a return to Doctor Who this [past] weekend with the first part of the new two-parter, “The Rebel Flesh”. In this exclusive SFX.co.uk interview he discusses the story’s origins....


Arthur Darvill and Karen Gillan from "The Rebel Flesh"

... SFX: How did you find writing for Matt Smith?

Matthew Graham: "Writing for Matt is great. Easy actually. Relatively easy. As it was writing for David. Because the characters that they’ve created have such a clear idiom. For me it felt like a very easy fit: the sort of hyperactive nutty professor locked too long away in the laboratory and just allowed out at the last minute. That was the pitch that Steven gave the writers for writing for Matt, and that served me very well. So I nailed, well I felt that I nailed, the character very quickly, and I loved writing for Matt.

You really do try to write for the character, not just a generic Doctor. Obviously, it was slightly easier for me writing for season six, because I’d already seen a whole season of Matt Smith. It would have been harder, obviously, for the writers of season five. But also, they sent me a couple of Steven’s scripts, I think it must have been one and two, just to show me how Steven was writing the Doctor this season.

But no, you can’t just write any old dialogue and hope Matt will make it sound like him. You try very hard to put in Mattisms, if you see what I mean. But you also try not to overdo the Mattisms. It’s a balance. Sometimes you get it right; sometimes you think, “Maybe I’ve overdone the Mattisms here.” But with a dark story like “The Rebel Flesh” and “The Almost People” – I mean, “The Rebel Flesh” is kind of cranking it up, and “The Almost People” drops us over the other side – it’s pretty intense, so it’s really important to try to find moments of proper humour and silliness for Matt. You consciously try to do that..."

Stargate Universe - Media Blvd Magazine: Patrick Gilmore Interview

MEDIA BLVD MAGAZINE: Patrick Gilmore on 'The Killing' and The End of 'Stargate Universe'

By Kenn Gold
Monday, 23 May 2011

Patrick Gilmore is at an interesting point in his career, with one high profile fan favorite, Stargate Universe, recently ending and a meaty recurring role in AMC’s hot new series The Killing. In Stargate, Gilmore played Dr. Dale Volker, a role that grew significantly since the start of the show. And on The Killing he plays billionaire Tom Drexler. Also in the can, and in post production are Joss Whedon’s The Cabin in the Woods, which has set on the shelf for two years, but may be nearing release in 3-D with the popularity of Chris Hemsworth, who has a part in the film. Meanwhile, Sunflower Hour, a mocumentary indy film about the dark underbelly of puppeteering finds Gilmore playing a truly unique character.

Patrick recently gave MediaBlvd an exclusive interview in which he spoke about the end of Stargate, and the fans involvement both in supporting that series and his career, as well as a small group of anti-fans who made a bad situation worse. He also spoke at length about The Killing, and his other upcoming roles.

The Killing airs on AMC on Sunday nights, and the 1st season finale is set for June 19th, 2011.


... MediaBlvd> Dale was kind of in the background in the start, but has been becoming more and more a part of things. I think my favorite episode of the entire series was just a few weeks ago where you saw the epilogue that the character would have died if he’d stayed on the planet. That hit me really hard watching that sequence. Was it always intended for him to have this bigger role, and grow into it?

Patrick> I think that just happened as it went along. A lot of the secondary cast members just auditioned for this general scientist character. Then they picked four or five, gave them names, and said, “Let’s see what they bring.” You had different actors that brought different things; Mark Burgess playing Franklin, Peter Kelamis playing Brody. They didn’t know who was really going to develop. An interesting little side fact and I don’t think I’m spoiling anything now that the show is over, but it was originally intended for Volker to sit in the chair instead of Franklin. And just by a twist of fate, or a slim vote, I made it out of the chair and was able to develop through season one, and get a stronger presence in season two. It was just kind of a wait and see as far as who Volker was going to be. They started really writing for our voices after the pilot, in Darkeness and Light, the 4th and 5th episode. Once they started getting to know us, and saw what we could bring, the more they started giving us. We were fortunate...

... Category 6: Day of Destruction

7:00 PM, SYFY

"The Day After Tomorrow" took a serious topic (climate change) and turned it into a preposterous but fun showcase of impressive special effects. This TV knockoff, on the other hand, is soft-core weather porn, a perfect storm of unconvincing special effects, cliches and the kind of careless casting that gives a pair of American actors a TV son with a thick Canadian accent. Dianne Wiest escapes with her dignity intact, but co-star Brian Dennehy has trouble staying awake, while Thomas Gibson just looks miserable.

Torchwood Miracle Day July 11

TORCHWOOD: MIRACLE DAY - STARZ VIDEO: Starz Video: New Series Extended Trailer - Premieres Friday, July 8, 2011 at 10/9C

An Original Series by STARZ

One day, nobody dies. All across the world, nobody dies. And then the next day, and the next, and the next, people keep aging — they get hurt and sick — but they never die. The result: a population boom, overnight.

With all the extra people, resources are finite. It’s said that in four month's time, the human race will cease to be viable. But this can’t be a natural event – someone’s got to be behind it. It’s a race against time as C.I.A. agent Rex Matheson investigates a global conspiracy. The answers lie within an old, secret British institute. As Rex keeps asking “What is Torchwood?", he’s drawn into a world of adventure, and a threat to change what it means to be human, forever.

Torchwood,” premiering July 8, stars John Barrowman (“Torchwood”, “Desperate Housewives”) as Captain Jack Harkness, Eve Myles (“Torchwood”, “Little Dorrit") as Gwen Cooper, Mekhi Phifer (“ER”, “Lie to Me”) as Rex Matheson and Bill Pullman (While You Were Sleeping, Independence Day) as Oswald Danes.
