Beware of minor SPOILERS for the premiere of Stargate Universe in the report below.
Following September’s announcement of the main characters for Stargate Universe (story), our friends over at SpoilerTV have just posted two brand new character breakdowns for the pilot episode: Senator Walker and Camille Wray, a representative of the International Oversight Advisory. Here’s how casting calls are describing these characters:
Male. 50s. 60s. Distinguished Senator who is the political oversight to this Stargate project trying to dial the ninth chevron. Also the proud loving father of Chloe Walker, his daughter and political aid. GUEST STAR, 2 EPISODE ARC. PLEASE SUBMIT ALL ETHNICITIES. STAR NAMES ONLY.
30-50. An accountant with the international oversight body that governs the Stargate program. Now the highest ranking member of that body left stranded on the ship, she has a false sense of importance and superiority to the other military and civilian population along with a stubborn way of asserting it. GUEST STAR, POSSIBLY RECURRING, PLEASE SUBMIT ALL ETHNICITIES.
Senator Walker is the father of Chloe Walker (formerly Carpenter), one of the show’s main characters. Based on what we know so far, it looks like she accompanies him in an official capacity as he inspects an off-world base run by Earth. After the base is attacked, they and everyone else must evacuate through the Stargate to the Ancient ship Destiny.
Authority on board the Destiny becomes an immediate issue, as military commander Colonel Everett Young and project head Dr. David Rush (Robert Carlyle) clash over who should be calling the shots. Based on the info above it looks like the I.O.A.’s Camille Wray will be making sure her opinion is heard, as well.
