12 JAN 04:

Stargate SG-1 star Richard Dean Anderson is relieved that the series, being shot in Vancouver, is in its eighth and final season.

Anderson, who plays Col. Jack O'Neill on the sci-fi series, said he'll be retiring from the business.

"Well, as much as a workaholic can retire. I have some other things I want to do and they don't include necessarily working in front of a camera," said Anderson.

"I have a five-year-old daughter who I don't get to see enough, I'm going to build a house in California and I'm going to learn Spanish."

Anderson broached the subjectof retirement in December 03 in an interview for British SF magazine Dreamwatch and later told Cult Times that he's going to be having even more time off in Season 8 than he did in Season 7, in which his schedule was a working week of 3.5 days, with one week off in four.

The success of Stargate is spawning a spinoff, called Stargate Atlantis, said Anderson.

"We're shooting it concurrently and it will hopefully pick up the ball. I'll help launch it. I'll be in the pilot but after that I'm done."

Michael Shanks suggested in his interview for radio talk show Sci Fi Overdrive that Anderson would be amenable to participating in a SG-1 ased feature film franchise and that MGM were open to the idea.
