Who Have You Followed to New Shows?

We've seen a few of our Stargate stars become regulars in other shows. Which ones are you following and what do you think of the new roles?

Amanda Tapping - Sanctuary (ended with 4th season)
Rainbow Sun Francks - The Listener (joined in second season)
Robert Carlyle - Once Upon a Time
Jewel Staite - The L.A. Complex
Michael Shanks - Saving Hope

Additionally, some of our Stargate guest stars have also made it to regular starring roles. I can't list them all, but a few that jump out at me at the moment are: Ben Bass in Rookie Blue, Erica Durance in Saving Hope (producer and star), Lou Diamond Phillips in Longmire, and Tony Amendola in Once Upon a Time (recurring).

Let me know if I missed anyone!

I followed Amanda in Sanctuary to about midway through the 3rd season and then I gave up....I enjoyed the first 2 series (and especially Michael Shanks' guest role as "Jimmy") but once "hollow earth" and that awful "Adam" character arrived I gave up...he ruined it for me...

Have watched OUAT since it started on UK TV...'tis OK....Carlyle is AMAZING as Rumplestiltskin/Mr Gold and steals the whole show...the rest is a bit "meh" in places, but good in others...like Sanctuary it is saved by the older, more experienced supporting cast like Tony A (OUAT) and C Heyerdhal (S) rather than the leads (sorry to the wicked queen woman & Amanda & Robin)...

Don't get Listener or LA Complex so can't comment..

Watched Saving Hope obviously, still adore Michael...it's alright, not stellar but he's great and I am enjoying the other characters so far (got a slight prob with Durance but I think the niggles will be ironed out)...can't really judge on a pilot filmed a year ago, need to see the "real" stuff they've been filming recently...but it's Michael and I'm thrilled he's got a chance to shine again in a series...

Deeds xx

Tony Amendola was also in the pilot of Continuum, and I suspect he'll show up from time to time again. Lexa Doig is also on the show.

Oh yes, I do hope that gets to travel overseas sometime!..I'm really interested in this one...

I've seen the first two eps and the concept is interesting. It's conflicted in whom you want to root for, which adds intriguing shades of gray.

I watched Saving Hope and enjoyed it more than I thought I would given that I really don't like medical shows. But, anything for Michael. I thought it was well done and well written. I hope it makes it.

I watch everything except The L.A. Complex and I'm downloading The Listener but haven't seen it yet.

I love Robert Carlyle in Once Upon A Time. I watched Longmire just last night and it seems interesting.

Some guest stars for your list (some are recurring characters on their shows).

Colin Cunningham (Major Paul Davis) is a main cast member on TNT's "Falling Skies," which follows a band of civilians and soldiers trying to survive an alien invaded Earth. He plays the character "John Pope." Season 2 starts on Sun, June 17, 2012.

Ryan Robbins (Ladon, SGA) is listed as the character "Tector" for all 8 of the episodes currently on IMDB for the upcoming second season of "Falling Skies," so maybe he's a new regular.

Colm Meaney (Cowen, SGA) is a main cast member of AMC's "Hell on Wheels," a series that takes place in 1865 and centers on the settlement that accompanied the construction of the first transcontinental railroad (the "Hell on Wheels"). The show returns for a second season on August 12, 2012.

Christopher Heyerdahl (Pallan on SG1, Todd the Wraith on SGA) is listed as a recurring character on "Hell on Wheels", appearing in 9 of the 10 episodes of the first season.

JR Bourne (Lantash/Martouf, SG-1) is a recurring character in MTV's "Teen Wolf." He's plays Chris Argent, a wolf hunter and father of Teen Wolf's girlfriend. The second season started June 3, 2012.

BTW, Jill Wagner (Larrin, SGA) played the recurring Kate Argent, sister of Chris Argent and also a wolf hunter. She got killed, though. Wagner was the host of the competition game show "Wipeout" for 4 seasons. She left the show in 2011 when she wanted to concentrate on her acting career.

And I have to mention David DeLuise (Pete Shanahan, SG1), who was the father on The Wizards of Waverly Place, the longest running Disney Channel original series at 106 episodes from Oct 2007 to Jan 2012.
