The Australian website Sci Fi Pi has posted new interviews with Stargate SG-1 stars Amanda Tapping and Beau Bridges. The two interviews touch on each actor’s acting career, family life, and what it was like working on the two direct-to-DVD movies, Stargate: The Ark of Truth and Stargate: Continuum.
Tapping was asked if she’s heard anything more about additional movies, and she replied, “Well, nothing as yet, but we’ve been really bolstered by Ark of Truth sales, so we’re hoping that will sway the higher-ups decisions for more movies.” She also said she’d be back on board “in a heartbeat.”
With her time currently taken up by her new series Sanctuary, Tapping isn’t available to be a full-time member of the Stargate Atlantis cast. And as far as Stargate Universe, the third series pitched by Brad Wright and Robert C. Cooper, Tapping said, “I’ve heard about it, there have been talks about it, but I don’t know any details about it. They’re not talking to me, when they’re talking! (laughs) Everything I know – I read on the internet.”

Bridges had a lot to share about his family and neighbors (including Stargate co-star Ben Browder) and how the business of acting has been a major part of his life. He’s had the opportunity to participate in many interesting projects. As for filming for Brad Wright’s Continuum, Bridges shared, “Well, I didn’t get to go up to the North Pole, but that was quite a bit of a big deal, working in the snow and ice and the submarine. It was pretty amazing, from what I heard. But on Continuum, I had fun doing that. I got to be a General Landry from a different time, that was a lot of fun, I enjoyed that.”
And does he think there will be more SG-1 movies? “Well, I think that even with these last movies, Rob and Brad always leave the door open a crack, to allow for the possibility of giving the fans more. I’ve recently been to a couple of conventions and I’m amazed at just how faithful people are to the show. I wouldn’t be surprised that after these two DVDs come out (Ark of Truth, Continuum) and if they do well, there may be some more. So even though the Ori arc was tied up, who knows what’s waiting out there in space?”
