TRIVIA

  • Amanda wasn't a big fan of the dialogue written for her character in the pilot, especially the line "Just because my reproductive organs are on the inside ..." She later had the opportunity to lampoon the line as an alternate universe version of Sam ("Moebius").
  • After the death of so many of her on-screen romantic interests over the years, she eventually asked the producers for a boyfriend who didn't die. The result was Carter's story arc with Pete Shanahan in Season Eight.
  • Amanda's daughter, Olivia, was born during the filming of SG-1's ninth season. Due to her maternity leave she was written out of the show for the first five episodes of the season.
  • She produces Sanctuary along with fellow SG-1 vets Damian Kindler (who created Sanctuary) and director Martin Wood.
