Stargate Atlantis star Joe Flanigan was the subject of a lengthy article titled “Joe Flanigan: The Adventurer”, published by Steve Eramo in the blog Sci Fi and TV Talk.
One of the highlights of the article: “It’s very easy to slip into the Sheppard character and see what his perception would be of the particular environment he’s in. You think, ‘OK, what are the things that he’d find amusing, serious, scary, or whatever,’ and then just act accordingly. Surprisingly, that’s not a difficult thing to do. Again, keeping him fresh from a character development standpoint is a little out of my control, but, you know, after all this time the people out there still seem to see Sheppard as someone who’s fun and interesting. That makes me feel good about what I’m doing.”
