Oooh, the internet is being nice to me today :)
THE DOCTOR IS IN: AN INTERVIEW WITH PAUL MCGILLION
Actor Paul McGillion is known to many sci-fi fans as Doctor Carson Beckett from Stargate Atlantis. McGillion, a perennial fan favorite and a regular—in odd-numbered years—attendee of Dragon*Con, took a few minutes to talk to the Daily Dragon.
Daily Dragon (DD): What was the biggest surprise in being involved with Stargate Atlantis?
Paul McGillion (PM): The biggest surprise in being involved with Atlantis was I guess initially, for me, I was signed on as a recurring character in season one and then shortly thereafter they had (the episode) “Poisoning the Well,” they decided the fan base was responding well to the character. The producers brought me into the office and said, “We love what you’re doing and we’d love to bring you on as a regular. We can’t do it this year but we’ll do it next year.” And they did. So as an actor […] you don’t know when you’re recurring; it might be a couple of episodes here and there or something but then boom, 17 episodes in the first season and then you become a regular in the series so that was a big surprise, a very good, great surprise.
