Join us as we talk to Paul McGillion, best known as the late Dr. Carson Beckett of "Stargate: Atlantis" fame. He talks about working on the popular series, what it was like to come back from the dead for his special two-episode visit to the Pegasys Galaxy, and what lies in his future now that his stint on the series is over. Is there any truth to all the talk about his auditioning for the role of Scotty in the new J.J. Abrams Star Trek movie? You'll have to listen in and see if he makes mention of it.
Some of Paul's feature film credits include The Deal, A Guy Thing with Julia Stiles and Jason Lee, A Cooler Climate with Sally Field, Jack and See Grace Fly for which Paul was nominated for the 2004 Leo Award's Best Lead Male for his heart wrenching performance as Dominic McKinley.
Television shows include lead and guest starring roles on Davinci's Inquest, Cold Squad, Smallville, Stargate SG-1, The Twilight Zone, and The X-Files.
Paul has also done stage performances in such productions as The Foreigners, Piano, Savage in Limbo, El Salvador, and the Jessie nominated Reservations for Two, which McGillion also produced and directed to rave reviews.
