Former Stargate Universe co-star Elyse Levesque calls her time on the show “two of my most memorable years yet.”
Levesque played Chloe Armstrong on SGU, which ran on Syfy Channel from 2009 to 2011.
“It was a game changer for me in a lot of ways, being brought onto a show like that,” she told TV Wise. “I’m still such good friends with many of the people I got to work with. It was such a great experience from top to bottom. I loved the show itself, my co-stars and getting to travel with them to promote the show. Just everything that came with the experience of working on that show was special. It was a very magical time in my life.”
She also talked about her experience at fan conventions — starting with her first trip to San Diego Comic-Con.
“I was so scared!” she laughed. “I’d never gone to a convention before, let alone the convention. They put you on stage in front of 4000 people or whatever it was and it was insane! I did conventions in the states and have gone to the U.K. a couple of times. They are a lot of fun, especially the U.K. ones because it’s a full-on weekend thing — whereas some of the other ones you just show up to do your Q&A and that’s it. The U.K. ones are a weekend of fun, you get to know everybody and you really get to connect with the fans.
“These fans are so supportive and loyal. It’s very touching to see that people love something you did so much that they are willing to spend a weekend and hear you just talk a bunch of stuff about the show.”
The 28-year-old actress now appears on the Hallmark Channel original series Cedar Cove, alongside former Stargate SG-1 actress Teryl Rothery (“Janet Fraiser”). The series has averaged over 2 million viewers and will be back for a second season (story). She plays Maryellen, daughter to Rothery’s character Grace.
Stargate fans will spot a number of other familiar faces from the Vancouver film community, including Garry Chalk (SG-1‘s Russian Colonel Chekov) as Sheriff Troy.
