Dear Sci-fi Online
just discovered your site. Looks great.
was wondering why there was no interview with Michael Shanks
of Stargate SG-1, particularly as he's been in the
press lately after he decided to leave the show (he cited
his character becoming "wallpaper" as the reason for his decision)
and his fans are campaigning for the writers to write scripts
for his consideration.
saw that you have interviews with the other cast members.
Any chance of an interview?
are still plugging away at this one. We did have an interview
with Michael Shanks just before he quit, but we decided not
to run this because we wanted to run an interview that had
him tell why he was leaving.
this is not a policy some of the UK Sci-fi mags have been
too bothered about. We noticed one, a few months ago, ran
a cover with Shanks on it claiming to have an inside interview
with him on why he was leaving. The interview itself was obviously
an old interview but the first half of it was filled with
speculation by the writer on why he was leaving. Not once
did they ask Shanks about his decision to leave.
you ask me that is cheating the readers and this is something
that we certainly are not prepared to do here. We hope to
have an interview with Shanks soon, but we don't want to fob
you off with any old rubbish.
