November 19, 2016: Submit Your Questions For Roger Cross, Dark Matter’s Six!

What better way to kick off the start of production on Dark Matter’s third season than a fan Q&A with actor Roger Cross.  Other cast members have already fielded your queries here on this blog:

Melissa O’Neil

Anthony Lemke

Alex Mallari Jr.

Zoie Palmer

Melanie Liburd

And now it’s time for Roger, one of Canada’s busiest actors, to submit to your grilling.

Got a burning question for him?  You have until Tuesday night to post it in the comments section of this blog.  After that, it’ll be in Roger’s hands…

November 19, 2016: Submit Your Questions For Roger Cross, Dark Matter’s Six!

Oooh, check it out.  Another little something from the Art Department.   Concept art from the fabulous Henry Fong for Episode 303.

November 19, 2016: Submit Your Questions For Roger Cross, Dark Matter’s Six!

Today, I went to the Toronto Christmas Market with Akemi and Jodelle.  We made Jodelle try popcorn shoots and roasted chestnut – both of which she hated, then made her pose beside this creepy red snowman – which she seemed to enjoy marginally more than the popcorn shoots and roasted chestnut.

We now resume our regularly scheduled scriptwriting session already in progress.

  1. Fantastic concept art!

    Thanks for setting up another great opportunity to ask the cast questions, Joe. And thank you, Roger for doing this Q&A 👍
    * If you could play any other character in Dark Matter, who would it be?
    * What’s the most fun role you’ve played, and why?
    * Which character have you played that is most like you, and the least like you?
    * Is there a question that you’d love to answer but have never been asked? If so, what is it and what would you reply?

  2. Rogerrrr!!!!! Love you on dark matter! Can you please try and get the cast to do the mannequin challenge (Joe you have to be in it too!!!)?!?!?!?! Ok that’s all, looking forward to S3! 🙂

  3. Hi Roger, like ceresis64 I’d like to know:
    * If you could/had to choose another role in Dark Matter, which one would it be? Could you – e.g. – imagine to be a male version of the Android?
    And also:
    * If you were in our position and had the possibility to ask your fans a question, what would you ask?

  4. Yeah, what are popcorn shoots? And according to Maryanne’s video, you don’t eat popcorn!

    I’ll have to think about something to ask Roger. So cool that he’s doing a Q&A.

    For a second, I thought that concept art was an actual photo! Amazing work.

  5. *What has been your favorite part about playing Six/Kal? (Any moments or scenes stick out in particular?)

    *If you could choose, are there any specific storylines or arcs you’d like your character to explore? (More hidden past stuff, body swaps, weird ticks or incidents, leadership roles, other secrets, a romance, etc.)

    *Any notable behind the scenes shenanigans you wanna share?

    Thanks for your time Roger & Joe!! I am anxious to see what S3 has in store for all of us!

    Krys ❤✌

  6. When someone made me try popcorn shoots once it was met with an instant BLECK! Albeit, I’m pretty sure i just was being punked because my friends all had their phone cams out waiting for my response to it.

    Beautiful job on todays tribute video @Chev! xo

    Stay Tuned! New mystery gift clue coming up tomorrow!

  7. Multiple choice either one
    1) Will you be visiting Hawaii soon? If so would you let fans know? Or San Diego Comic-Con?
    2) What makes you happy?
    3) Blink-Drive is now with Ryo and blew-up eos-7, betrayed everyone especially nyx , is it a relief that you’re not on the bottom of the naughty list?
    4) you were the first to use Transfers Transit, Now that Raza Crew has their own Transfer Transit Units, Using 5’s ability to hack memories too, is it possible that instead of sending out one clone you could send out multiples and successfully merge all the memories back together? Is it necessary to be unconscious? Kind of like mixing Edge of Tomorrow and Naruto’s shadow clones!

  8. “Popcorn Shoots are kernels of corn allowed to grow up to a few inches tall–about three weeks. When grown in the dark, they are yellow.” Wow–who knew this was a thing? I learn so much from your blog, Joe!

  9. If you could build anything out of Legos, what would it be and why?

    Have you ever shot a man in Reno just to watch him die?

    What is Six’s most appealing trait?

  10. I’m going to have to listen to that video blog tribute when I can turn the volume up. It’s 1:37 a.m. and I can’t sleep but if I turn it up, everyone will wake up.

  11. I’ll try to come up with some questions for Roger by Monday. When I saw the red snowman I instantly thought it looked like a big Kong for dogs. I said, “Wow, Boomer would love trying to get the frozen goodies out of THAT thing!!!”

  12. Does 6 have a family? Did 2 & 6 anticipate 4 trying to steal blink drive? Does 6 still consider Anders a friend? Is it weird being on a Canadian sci fi show?

  13. Yay and hi Roger!
    Thanks for taking time for a Q&A session.

    I would love to know, considering all the different types of productions you’ve been in, what attracted you to Dark Matter – particularly as you had no idea from the scripts, who your character was or where your storyline would be heading?

    In Season 1, who did you originally think was the mole and how did you feel when you found out?

    You seem to be a very chilled out, happy kinda guy. What’s your secret?

    Thanks again for your time.
    I really look forward to seeing you as Six in Season 3. Good luck!

  14. Joe, Joe! Please publish a glossy book of the art of Dark Matter. I’d buy it in a flash! Honest 😁

  15. @Chev Fab tribute video 👍

    Some more questions for Roger
    Where would you like to see Six’s character go/do in Season 3?
    What has been your favourite prop, so far?
    What has been the most challenging location you’ve had to shoot in?
    What book are you currently reading?
    Which song have you listened to the most? Why?

  16. 1. What drew you to the script?

    2. What do you have most in common with your character?

    3. 6 betrayed the team and just got their respect back and both 6 and 4’s reasons were kind of honor based where 6 was for the law and 4 is for his people, both a sense of duty. Do you think 6 will ever forgive 4 for what he did in season 2 finale based on that?

    Love the show hope it goes on to season 4!

  17. Thanks Roger for doing a Q & A! I’m a big fan of your work. You’ve been in so many Sci-fi movies/TV shows, and have met some wonderful actors. Any fun anecdotes that you can share?

    The Karate tournament went well yesterday. This was my first time doing charting and I didn’t make one mistake. At one point, the judge stopped a match and questioned me about why this one kid was sparring more bouts than he thought was correct. I had to explain to him that it wasn’t ONE kid, it was identical twins. We all had a laugh and went back to work.

    Maryanne: Very nice video!

    I’ll have to look up popcorn shots. We don’t that kind of thing down here. 😉 Come to think of it, chestnuts, aren’t common here either. One the flip side, you guys probably don’t have okra, right?

  18. @ Chev – Very nice video for Joe’s 10th. We’ve got some very talented people in this group!

  19. Hi Roger, thanks for doing the Q&A – I’m sure you get a lot of the same questions in your interviews so I’d like you to please tell us something about yourself or the show (or both) that you’ve never said in an interview or at a convention. Time to get thinking!

  20. Roger Cross:
    On the Raza main deck, ep105 there is live food being stored in fish tanks, or is it a screen saver?

    Three seems to have been given an intelligence boost.. the host may have retained some of the black goo’d knowledge, does 6 notice the change?

    Eos-7 you tried to convince Galactic Authority Chief Inspector Kierkan, Kristen Holden, that he was mistaken about what was going on. Pretty much it was Ryo who blew the station.
    Kierkan is either dead or in TT tube. Either way
    It is War, and 6 seems to be stepping up to assume a new role in the war effort. If so, What role do you see playing or what change is coming?

  21. Hi Roger – what is the most flattering thing your fellow cast members would say about you and what is the least?

  22. Popcorn shoots? No gracias, I’ll still with my White Chocolate Peppermint popcorn which I’ve begun hoarding since Boom Chicka Pop only makes it once a year.

    For Roger Cross: Six is empathetic character both pre and post mind wipe. Does Six keep that strong moral compass in season 3 or is the Raza crew rubbing off on him?

    What was your fave ep of season2, and what is your fave ep so far of the new season?

  23. Roger-aka-Six- Do you feel that six has been forgiven/accepted as part of the crew again. What’s his role on the ship looking like (assuming they make it back to the ship…) How is his relationship with five? That was definitely something I loved from season one.

  24. That Red Snowman reminds me of a chew toy my friend’s dog has, minus the carrot nose of course.

    Love the concept art from Ep 303. Looks like some type of control room or potentially a transport room. The “beam” is intriguing.

    aka Maryanne: love the video! Nicely done. I did not know of Joe’s dislike of popcorn.

    Questions for Roger: most of my questions have already been asked in some form, but hopefully I’ll come up with something original.

    1. Most influential movie, art, or literature that inspires your work?
    2. Favorite artist?
    3. Favorite animal?
    4. Favorite quote or phrase?
    5. Do you see your character surviving all 5 “planned-out” seasons? Hopefully we’ll get the 5 seasons that Joe has envisioned. I’d like more than 5 of course.

    On a personal note, it was a pleasure meeting Roger at Dragon Con, such a sweet person. Thank you for coming down to Georgia!

  25. No questions directly, but tell him a slew of us down here in Oregon adore the crap out of his extensive work!

  26. THanks @ceresis64, @TheOtherOne @TamDixon @Ponytail @PBMom @MaggieL80

    It took me awhile to find the content. I probably should have written the posts down somewhere…. it was all taken from the blog…

    Cheers, Chev

  27. Questions for Roger Cross:

    – What do you like and/or dont like about Six?
    – Which episode of DM Season 1 do you like the most (if you remember) and which crew member(s) is/are your favorite and why?
    – Regarding the mole and betrayal – what would you, Roger Cross, do in place of Six? Would you betray others like Six or do something completely different?
    – Three learnt some basic pilot skills in Season 2. Could you honestly compare his skills to skills of Six? 🙂
    – It seems there will be war of corporations in Dark Matter. What do you think Six would like to do now? If GA is corrupt, maybe Raza crew could become new “rogue authority” that punishes all corporations for war crimes against civilians.
    – If you could write one episode of Dark Matter, what would it be about?
    – What do you and your crew mates usually do on set between shooting? I imagine that Marc Bendavid liked to read books, Alex Mallari is sportsman with “music always in the ears”, Anthony is chatting somewhere with crew… not sure about the others, but maybe Im wrong. Could you tell us?
    – Jodelle gives impression that she has a lot in common with Five in real life. Would you agree? You were big friends in season 1 so lets say you are qualified for this question. 🙂
    – Afaik someone said that you are probably the biggest “goofball” on set. 🙂 Could you tell us some joke or funny moment from set?
    – Did some colleague (actor) help you in your early career and how?
    – You acted in a lot of sci-fi shows and movies. What usually attracts you to do them? Are you become a little typecasted or its actually a compliment to be “man from future” or “man for future”. 🙂
    – Do you see how sci-fi as a genre evolved or the difference between shooting your early sci-fi shows like First Wave and the recent ones (Continuum, DM, The 100)? Could you shortly compare sci-fi show you did?
    – What could you tell us about your involvement in 24? You were often shooting scenes with Kiefer Sutherland, right?
    – You probably did a lot of auditions. Could you tell us some funny or interesting story from auditions?
    – You acted in show Taken about alien abductions. Do you think it could be theme for future Dark Matter episode?
    – Star Trek or Star Wars?
    – Do you have some dream role (for you) or dream story/character arc for Six? Tell us.

    Thanks for answers and your great performance as Six.

  28. Questions for Roger

    1. What’s your favourite Dark Matter set or location to shoot and why?

    2. Have you ever exaggerated about a skill on an acting resume and then had to perform it?

    3. How many takes for the strut down the hallway at the end of the Season 1 Finale?

    4. Going forward, what are Six’s feelings towards Four in Season 3?

    5. Are all the quarters on the Raza identical in size and are the beds comfortable?

    Cheers, Chev

    Lastly, this could be a question of Joe… is there any reason for the order the crew woke up or was it random?
