Luttrell to train with Ray Park
SUNDAY - DECEMBER 5, 2004

by David Read

The first year of filming for Stargate Atlantis has wrapped at Vancouver's Bridge Studios, and though only a handful of episodes have aired, Teyla Emmagan is quickly becoming one of the most fascinating characters in the franchise. Now, actress Rachel Luttrell tells GateWorld that she will be training over the hiatus with none other than Ray Park.

"When I was in London I had the opportunity to meet Ray Park," Luttrell said. Park is well known by science fiction fans as Darth Maul in "Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace," and Toad in the first "X-Men" film. "He mentioned to me that he would be more than happy to teach me a few tricks, so he's actually going to be in Los Angeles a little bit over the holidays and the two of us are going to connect. He's going to work my butt off, and I'm thrilled! I'm so, so excited!"

"I'm looking forward to exploring the dark and the light," she added cryptically. If this prep time with Park is any indication, Teyla will be seeing plenty of action in Season Two.

"I'm interested in seeing her vulnerability," Luttrell said of Teyla's future development. "I'm looking forward to finding all of the chinks in her armor. However that may play out, I don't know. I'm [also] really excited about all this great stuff I'm learning in terms of fighting techniques," she added, saying that staff and knife duels will be plentiful in the second half of Season One. The actress also promised that the twin fighting sticks (introduced in a make-shift form in "Suspicion") will be returning to her capable hands.

New episodes of Stargate Atlantis return to The SCI FI Channel on January 21. Season Two will begin filming this February for a summer premiere on SCI FI.
