McGillion Talks Atlantis Return




The power of the people man!!

From Sci-Fi Wire, we learn that Paul McGillion, who will be returning to
Stargate Atlantis in the role of Dr. Carson Beckett for a two-episode arc
during the upcoming fourth season, told SCI FI Wire that it feels great
to be back on the show after nearly a year away.

"Honestly, it feels like coming home," McGillion said in an interview
on the phone from the set in Vancouver, Canada. "And everyone's been
so terrific to me. The crew gave me a little round of applause when I
came back on the set. And that was really sweet. That felt really
nice. And everyone's been really gracious towards me, and it's just
been really nice. I love the character, and the chance to reprise
Beckett is my pleasure."

McGillion's character perished in an explosion near the end of the
third season, causing an outcry among fans, who began a Save Carson
Beckett campaign in an attempt to bring him back. McGillion said he's
been encouraged by the all fan support, but was still somewhat
surprised when he got the call to come back.

"When the fellas told me that they were going to be making some
changes with the cast and stuff, they said, 'No one ever dies in sci-
fi,'" McGillion said. "I was kind of surprised, but having heard a
lot of the fan reaction and stuff, I think it was a big thing when my
character died, and I think that has a lot to do with the writing
they gave the character and the opportunity to play such a fun
character and a well-loved character. A lot of people have called him
the heart of Atlantis. And I think the fans really stood behind that
and rallied behind the character a lot. So I was flattered and
obviously thrilled to come back."

The details of the episodes are being kept under wraps, but McGillion
assured fans that they would be satisfied with his role in the
story. "They gave me a really great storyline," he said. "I think the
fans will appreciate it. Beckett has a lot to do in the storyline
that they've given the character. So I'm really happy with it. I
think it's a really great way to bring Beckett back. Without going
into any details, because I really can't, he's heavily, heavily based
in the episodes. They'll see a lot of Beckett."

The future of the character beyond the two episodes remains unclear,
but McGillion is open to the possibility of coming back on a more
permanent basis. "We'll see what happens," he said." I don't know
what their plans are for the character or where I'm going to be, but
it's always a pleasure to come back and work on the show, that's for
sure. So I'm not ruling anything out."

In addition to McGillion's return, Atlantis viewers can also look
forward to guest appearances by Torri Higginson (Dr. Elizabeth Weir)
and Stargate SG-1's Christopher Judge (Teal'c) in the upcoming fourth
season. Stargate: Atlantis will return on Sept. 28 in a new timeslot
on Fridays at 10 p.m. PT/ET.
