One of the great things about living in downtown Toronto is the likelihood of crossing paths with people I’ve worked with in the past. Last year, for instance, I ran into actor Brian J. Smith (Stargate: Universe, Sense8, Broadway). Last week, it was director Mairzee Almas (Dark Matter, The 100, iZombie). The other day, it was Stargate’s very own goa’uld System Lord Camulus, Steve Bacic (Stargate: SG-1, Big Love, Chris Judge’s occasional poker nights). We followed up, yesterday, with lunch that touched on film & television production, philosophy, neurochemistry, and a hot chocolate called a Siciliana comprised of dark chocolate, orange syrup and cayenne to which I added a shot of espresso.
Anyway, it was the first time I really got a chance to sit down and talk to Steve and, I have to say, I’m now even more of a fan. Smart, talented, and, above all, just a genuinely good, grounded individual.
I told him about the the blog and pitched him a possible Steve Bacic fan Q&A, and he’s all in. So – if you have a question for the former System Lord (who continues to be crazy busy shooting everything from t.v. guest spots to films), post it in this blog’s comments section. I’ll gather up your queries and send them his way this weekend!
