Dr. Lee dons a stylish pair of goggles in Season Eight’s “Zero Hour.”
One of the most demanding episodes for Dow was Season Seven’s “Evolution,” because of the physical demands. “The whole physical demand, getting washed away with the water and going down the hole and jumping … one of the actors that was up from Los Angeles was kind of going, ‘I can’t believe you’re doing all that stuff without a stuntman. What are you doing? What’s wrong with your contract?’ And I went, ‘I love it. I’m having fun here!’ … It was fun but it was demanding.”Dow sees his character primarily as a scientist who wishes he could be a hero.”Dr. Lee has a hidden side where he actually considers himself to be like a super-spy or some kind of superhero,” he said. “… I think he has great admiration for the people who do that, and thinks, ‘I wanna be like that!’ He really thirsts to get into the action. I don’t think he’s equipped for that at all. … But I think there is a great passion in the center of him.”In the full interview, Dow also compares his time with Anderson on MacGyver and Stargate SG-1, and speaks to his hopes for the future of his character in Season Ten.
