Act Accordingly

Robert from Perth asks:  When you're shooting a gate scene, do you imagine it's real? And if so, do you get nervous before walking through it?


Julia Benson answers:  Whenever I am on set, I always imagine myself in the situation and then act accordingly.  The Stargate and the rest of the Destiny set are so incredible that it makes it easy to feel like you are there.

Incredible

Julie from Sliven, Bulgaria asks:  What do you think about the new aliens from the episode “Space”?  Did you know what they looked like before you started shooting?


Julia Benson answers:  I thought the aliens from Space were incredible.  In fact that was my favorite episode of the first season!  We do get to see drawings before we shoot but it is always amazing to see the special effects once everything comes together.

We Turned Him Blue!

Robert from Dombóvár asks:  What was the funniest mistake you made or the funniest scene you played in?


Patrick Gilmore answers:  Oh c'mon. Where do I start?  Check out the Kino "Wait For It".  As scripted it ended with us giggling at Brody's misfortune and Scott asking "What did you guys do?" In one take Haig Sutherland improvised and blurted out "We turned him blue!" It was so unexpected and ridiculous that I fell apart...and that's the cut they used. Look for it, that's me actually laughing. That happens at least once a day on the SGU set.

Absolutely!

Ed from England asks:  Do you watch the show after production?


Julia Benson answers:  Absolutely!  I am very proud to be a part of SGU.  Sometimes the cast will get together and watch and other times, I check it out with family and friends!  My friends that have never watched Sci-Fi before like watching it with me so I can talk them through certain parts, lol!

Orbitty

Frances from Sherman Oaks, CA asks:  What kind of pet would your character like to have with them on Destiny? Does your character have a pet on Earth that they’re missing?

Hang Out

Rainer from Tallinn, Estonia asks:  What do you do on set when you’re not acting?


Julia Benson answers:  Last year I was working on a series that I created with my husband Peter and another colleague.  In the down time, that kept me very busy both on and off set!  When I wasn’t working on that, the rest of the cast and I would hang out in between scenes.  Our set is a ton of fun to be on and there is always someone to catch up with.  Someone usually has music playing, our trailer doors are typically open and we all really enjoy spending time together!
