Rundown of Stargate Atlantis actors this week (Aug 28-Sep 3)

A rundown of news this week on the Stargate Atlantis actors. Think I've remembered everything. Under cut for size:

For those who didn’t attend the Stargate convention in Chicago held last weekend (August 27-29) I’ve put up a bunch of links to fan blogs, vids and photos at http://wraithfodder.livejournal.com/446708.html and linked posts (I might be posting third collection of blogs, etc. this weekend). I couldn’t attend so am very happy that many who went are sharing the wealth. The repartee between Joe Flanigan and David Hewlett was apparently priceless, especially the germ-ridden handkerchief Joe waved in David’s face. And of course, Michael Shanks is in there too ;) 

*************************

JOE FLANIGAN doesn’t tweet too often, but it’s fun when he does. You can follow him at http://twitter.com/JoeFlanigan. He’s currently up in Toronto filming “Best Laid Plans” (details at http://wraithfodder.livejournal.com/444878.html), putting up photos of his kids, and of course, his dogs. He’s also put at least one promo photo from his Syfy movie “The Other Side” on his twitter, which I posted at http://wraithfodder.livejournal.com/447308.html. And every other Joe Flanigan must have posted them as well ;)

DAVID HEWLETT
Unfortunately had to bow out of DragonCon three days before the event, leaving many unhappy fans. This was discussed briefly during his one hour (which turned into 90 minutes) chat at Wired.com’s GeekDad podcast, which you can download at http://www.wired.com/geekdad/2010/09/the-geekdads-episode-75-old-grumpy-and-eccentric/. The chat was mostly about geeky tech stuff, but he did give fans a few minutes at the end for an impromptu Q&A. Nevertheless, if you’re a David fan, download the podcast. It’s fun to listen to! I suspect @RodneyisGodney is still on cloud 9 for having David say ‘hi’ to her.

*************************

KATE HEWLETT
Kate alas, got un-invited to DragonCon, probably because David had to bow out. “
No longer invited to Atlanta. Disappointing, but not surprising” she said on Twitter, but “Going to be a student again! With more wrinkles and slightly better hair.’ Also, upon finishing up The Swearing Jar in NYC, she returned home and she tweeted today “I go out of town for four weeks and my cat turns into Jabba the Hutt.”

JASON MOMOA
Is busy working on Game of Thrones, but ScifiTV.com.au posted a nice interview with Jason at http://www.scifitv.com.au/Blog/2010/08/is-dex-the-sex-jason-momoa-talks-stargate-atlantis/

There are also photos out there from the Conan the Barbarian movie. You can find them here http://blastr.com/2010/08/conan-pics.php

PAUL McGILLION is down at DragonCon this weekend, and here are some tweets about it:

KAVAN SMITH
Well, darn, no news on him, but keep an eye on SyFy’s “Eureka” as he’s been playing Deputy Andy.

*************************

DAVID NYKL
Is doing a con in Vancouver, October 1-3, at the Vancouver Airport Marriott – http://www.vcon.ca/ - http://shaddyr.livejournal.com/274460.html has coverage of it, and posted … *
*Excellent Actor guest, David Nykl** The fantastic actor who brought us Radek Zelenka for 5 seasons on Stargate: Atlantis is going to be in attendance, along with a number of other people from the production, to discuss the movie The Beast of Bottomless Lake. Shot in BC, the movie follows Dr. Morgan (Nykl) as he investigates the existence of Ogopogo.  **I should state that I have no idea how long Mr. Nykl plans to be at the con, just that he has agreed to come for the movie discussion panel. **

*************************

TORRI HIGGINSON
Sigh, anybody else hear anything on her??

*************************

RACHEL LUTTRELL has been traveling between the coasts, Toronto and Vancouver, visiting family and, judging from her twitter (http://twitter.com/rachel_luttrell) having a wonderful time. *** and *** this article - http://www.stargatearchive.com/journal/index.php/2010/08/rachel-luttrell-reminices-on-stargate-atlantis/ - is from August, but a nice overview of Rachel’s feelings on SGA.
