Well, look who it is. Yes, it’s my former Stargate arch-nemesis Ashleigh (not to be confused with my former Transporter arch-nemesis Tara) and her adorable pug, L’Eau. I happened to be in Gastown, enjoying an afternoon stroll with my frenchie, Lulu, when I happened to spot our former Exec. Producers’ Assistant across the street. The last time I’d spoken to her was – well, we actually exchanged texts a couple of weeks ago. I invited her to lunch. She said she couldn’t make it but suggested an alternate date. I said great and waited for her follow-up text. Which never came. Clearly, she’s been VERY busy. What doing? Well, so far as I could discern, not all that much – certainly nothing that would trump having lunch with yours truly.
Anyway, we did some catching up. I suggested we get together for lunch next Friday. She informed me that Friday was no good for her but suggested an alternate date. She’ll get back to me.
Continuing our stroll down SGA memory lane…
I loved this episode for many, many reasons. Carl Binder, Martin Gero, and I broke the story over the course of a fun-filled afternoon. We cast the wonderful Jodelle Ferland as Harmony and she was not only perfect for the role, but perfectly prepared. She not only knew all of her dialogue, but knew everyone else’s dialogue as well, occasionally prompting David and Joe whenever they forgot their lines. Much of the episode was shot at Widgeon Park – a lot of early mornings and late nights – with one of my favorite directors, the amazing Will Waring, calling the shots. It was the same location where the crew reported spotting a bear while shooting an episode of SG-1. Apparently, when Chris Judge got word of the sighting, he refused to come out of trailer. Guess you don’t see very many bears back on Chu’lak.
Thanks to the well-wishes on the wasp sting (and Akemi’s wisdom tooth extraction). I’m almost fully recovered (Akemi too). And thanks for the horrific dental surgery stories (Did I mention how much that wasp sting hurt? A lot!).
