Feature: Stargate SG-1
For six seasons as Samantha Carter, Amanda Tapping has given this popular series its heart and soul.
As Major Samantha Carter on Stargate SG-1, Amanda Tapping has spent the past six years imbuing the Space-hopping, hi-tech series with much of its heart and soul. The character is as tough as O’Neill (Richard Dean Anderson), Teal’c (Christopher Judge) and Jackson (Michael Shanks), but she’s also feminine. Stargate just wouldn’t be the same without Tapping or Carter. Fortunately, Tapping has been a constant from day one, and she’s on hand again now, as the series returns to the airwaves for its seventh season. Starburst chatted to Tapping on a rare day off and found her to be in terrific humour as she discussed past events, the return of Michael Shanks – and exit of Corin Nemec – as well as her hopes for Carter’s continued development.
Let’s start with Season Six. How pleased were you with the year as a whole and specifically Carter’s character arc?
What would you say the sixth season finale, Full Circle, set in motion for Season Seven?
Oh yeah? We didn’t know that…
