None of the people are what you think when you first meet them, who you think they are, and they turn out to be maybe something a little different.

I appeared several times on Atlantis while I was doing Stargate. And they’ve mentioned to me before that they’d like me do some, but right now I have nothing specific to report. I know Amanda Tapping is a regular now on the show. But I have no plans to do that as we speak. But I don’t know.
