  • David Palffy: (about playing a Goa'uld on Stargate) The fun is finding a certain attribute with them that you can put on what's called an external -- a hand movement, the way they look -- that sets them apart from the human race. Even though, yes, a lot of the gods have penetrated human form, but the thing is I find there's something interesting if you can find something non-human about the way they move. But I think that's basically the difference. I mean, it's basically: you treat it the same as anything, except with playing with these gods you're able to add that extra external onto playing the character.
