STARGATE UNIVERSE - CHEVRON ONE: The Fantastic Journey: An Interview with Jennifer Spence

August 15, 2011
by Jennifer Griffin

With Echoes co creators Mark Savela and Ken Kabatoff busily putting the final touches to their alien invasion pilot this week, we sat down to speak to its star, Jennifer Spence about acting, aliens and the appeal of playing the underdog.

Well, the thing that really appeals to me about her is that she’s very much an underdog to begin with, when we first meet her in the show,” Jennifer tells me, describing her character Sonya in Echoes.

It’s just wonderful. It’s like so many things in life where you see somebody come out of their shell or excel as a human being. It’s always a journey that we go through as human beings. We don’t always start off as a certain type of person. We often wind up as a different sort of person to how we started out.

So I really liked that she starts out as an underdog and is forced to undertake this leadership position and lead these people through to survival. It’s a fantastic journey for her. That just really appealed to me – to be able to play that transformation of a character. That transformation is fascinating, and what we live for as actors...

DOCTOR WHO - SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE: Matt Smith reflects on Doctor Who role

by Rob Lowman
Wednesday, August 17, 2011

Sitting in a cabana by a pool next to a Beverly Hills hotel, Matt Smith is wearing oversized sunglasses, a form-fitting light-sweater and skinny jeans. With a mop of hair falling over his brow, the actor is a lot more relaxed than the frantic bow-tied character he plays on television - Doctor Who.

Though not as manic as the time-traveling lord who flits around the universe saving the day, the 28-year-old Smith seems to have the same nervous energy of a player itching to get into a game.

Maybe that's because Smith wanted to be a soccer player growing up but he hurt his back when he was 16 and a teacher introduced him to acting, putting him on a different career path.

"He told me to do what you're good at and cast me in a play. I'm very thankful to him," Smith says. "I was lucky enough to find a good person like that; it's a good thing. He really encouraged me, really guided me and had faith in me. I owe him a great deal..."
