In this podcast Gerri and Eugenia catch up with Chuck Campbell. Chuck has not only starred as Chuck the Gate Guy or “The Chucknician” in Stargate Atlantis but also stars Two Faced in Sanctuary but that’s not all he does either.

This podcast is a little different. Gerri and Eugenia went to a convention at which the inimitable Stargate Atlantis actor David Hewlett who played Dr “Meredith” Rodney McKay was one of the guests. David is a great showman and kept the audience well entertained, so we thought that you might like to hear him too. He talks about his role with the show, his love of the UK TV show Doctor Who and the movie that he wrote, directed, and starred in “A Dog’s Breakfast”. What are you waiting for start downloading it!!
In this podcast Gerri and Eugenia are joined by their two good friends Marlene and Sarah. So what are they talking about? Well, they decided to get together to talk about Stargate Atlantis which is Sarah’s favourite show. So did they just talk about the show or did it turn into a discussion about one friend’s obsession with a character from this show! Who do you think this may be well to give you a hint his name begins with an M? So have a listen and see if you can tell which of us is the one with the obsession and find out how he (oops that is another clue) talks about how he got his role in Stargate Atlantis. Keep listening to our upcoming podcasts and you will be able to listen to him talk about his time on the show.
