One of GateWorld’s favorite activities over the past eight years has been traveling to Vancouver, British Columbia in Canada every spring to cover Creation Entertainment’s Official Stargate Convention. And every year we make sure to arrive a few days early in order to spend some time with cast and crew members local to the area who aren’t necessarily part of the convention. With this year being the final Vancouver event, we felt it imperative while there to sit down and chat with a creative team that needs no real introduction on these pages.
The impact that Amanda Tapping and Martin Wood have had on genre television is immeasurable, not just with the Stargate franchise but also with the series they helped create: Sanctuary. GateWorld visited the duo at Stargate‘s former home, The Bridge Studios (where they are working on their latest project), for a discussion that was equal parts emotional, brutally honest, hopeful and, best of all, hilarious. We discuss the potential for Stargate‘s future, Sanctuary‘s best moments of the past two years, whether or not the latter series will grace our screens again, behind-the-scenes anecdotes, the latest on Primeval: New World, and more. Plus, the pair take a few moments to answer some questions you provided from GateWorld Forum!
GateWorld’s interview with Amanda Tapping and Martin Wood runs 37 minutes and is available in audio for your listening pleasure. It’s also transcribed below. Forum questions are exclusive to the transcribed version … so read on!
