Trivia and Quotes

  • Go Ben GO

    I miss Ben, I have always enjoyed his performances and humor. His most stand-out role, of course, was John Crichton in Farscape. In Farscape he was a lost man in the first season and by the second season he was knowledgeable, strong and very humorous. This became the core of his character throughout the series and whenever given the chance he even amped up the sexuality, something most Sci-Fi shows lack dearly.

    Later, he was cast in Stargate SG1 but was never really the same or I never felt like he gave the same "quality" of performances as he did in Farscape.moreless
  • Ben gives his ALL!!

    Ben Browder gives his ALL, totally immersing himself in any character he plays. In particular I would draw your attention to the role of John Crichton in Farscape. From the innocent IASA astronaut in Season 1, to the tortured soul in Season 2 - 3, to the ultimate sacrifices in S4, to a happy ending (for now) in PKW miniseries. Ben is a very talented actor, strives to be a perfectionist, a deeply devoted family man, all that and easy on the eyes to boot. He could make reading the phone book a pleasurable experience! Looking forward to his misscellany of future projects.moreless
