Justin Louis and Brian J. Smith On Set Interview STARGATE UNIVERSE Season 2

     September 28, 2010

With Stargate Universe returning with new episodes tonight on Syfy,  I was invited – along with a few other online journalists – to visit the Vancouver set so I could interview the entire cast and get a close up look at the Destiny ship.  As a big fan of SGU, it was very cool to see the Destiny up close and also interview everyone who brings the show to life.  While I won’t write about the big spoilers I learned, I have no problem saying season two builds on the momentum of the first, and it’s heading towards a big revelation.  Trust me, by the end of season two, a lot of information about the Destiny will be revealed.

Anyhow, over the past week I’ve posted interviews with David Blue and Elyse Levesque, Robert Carlyle, and producer Brad Wright.  Now it’s time for Justin Louis and Brian J. Smith. During the interview they discussed what’s coming up on SGU in season two, Louis talks about a huge 12 page dialogue scene that he did with Robert Carlyle for an upcoming episode, and a lot more.  Hit the jump to watch what they had to say.  You’ll definitely notice how different Justin Louis is from his character on the show…
