BOSTON HERALD: Lana Parrilla casts a spell in dual roles in ‘Once Upon a Time’

By Amy Amatangelo

She killed her own father and destroyed countless lives, but Lana Parrilla still feels the Evil Queen’s pain.

Parrilla stars as the dastardly monarch and as Regina, the mayor of Storybrooke, in ABC’s new hit “Once Upon a Time” (tonight at 8). The network picked up the show for a full season after but two episodes had aired.

If I really think about the queen, there’s a reason why she’s evil,” Parrilla told the Herald last week from the show’s set. “So, as an actor, when I analyze the origin of her pain and where it derives from, I’m not being evil for the sake of being evil. I’m not killing anyone for the sake of just killing them. There’s a reason behind it. She’s revengeful because she’s been betrayed...

STARGATE SG-1 - GATEWORLD: 'Heart of Langara' - Corin Nemec Interview

Sunday - November 13, 2011
by Chad Colvin

Despite appearing in just over a season’s worth of Stargate SG-1‘s monumental 214-episode run, the character of Jonas Quinn — expertly portrayed by actor Corin Nemec — was and still remains a fan favorite. The character, who was meant to be a replacement on the team for “Daniel Jackson” after actor Michael Shanks departed the series for a brief period after Season Five, quickly built a following of its own — a development Nemec is both proud of and humbled by.

GateWorld had the chance to sit down with the actor earlier this year, during one of the stops on Creation Entertainment‘s Official Stargate Convention tour. In our exclusive chat with Corin Nemec, he talks about his ever-shifting focus within the entertainment industry, how the sci-fi landscape has changed, his thankfulness of the Stargate fanbase, why he feels the character of Jonas has endured over the years, and more!

... GW: What have you been up to?

CN: "Just been working, actually. “Been working, actually,” as if that’s a rarity. This year’s been really busy. It’s been great. I’ve done four films, pretty much back-to-back starting in January with a film called Besties which is kind of a teen-angst thriller. I’m not playing a teen in that, mind you. I’m playing the parent of a teen.

The next one I did after that was called Nuclear Family, which I shot some of last year. It’s a post-apocalyptic action drama and that’s been produced and distributed by Michael Eisner’s company, Vuguru.

Then right after that, I did a comedy called Sand Sharks, which is like one of these Syfy original type shows. But it’s actually tongue-in-cheek, kind of like Tremors was.

Then I just wrapped a few days ago a film called 333, which is another psychological thriller, a kind of slasher film. All of them, I think, should be quite good...
