Trivia and Quotes

  • David Hewlett as Dr Rodney McKay.

    I have to admit, when this character first appeared in SG-1, alongside Amanda Tapping and the rest of the cast, I didn't like him at all. He was annoying and challenged Sam Carter (Tapping), not just intellectually but morally too. He bugged me because what he said was plausible and there stood a chance that he would be right and Carter would be wrong. After a few episodes of disliking him intently, he made the transition from reoccurring SG-1 character, to Stargate Atlantis (SGA) regular.

    The Rodney McKay of SG-1 was a pain in the neck, but the Rodney of SGA is brilliantly quirky. David Hewlett plays this character extremely well. He (Rodney) not only entertains the audience but the rest of the cast too. He's a hypochondriac, annoyingly smart, arrogant and awful with women, but his quirky-squirmishness sets a scene of comedy, where many sci-fi shows can be seen as perhaps stiff and dry. He is by far the funniest character of the show and that makes him very entertaining to watch. Who said techno babble was boring, not I.

    Thumbs up to you David!

  • I love the way he acts. I think he helps make stargate Atlantis. Plus I think he's kinda sexy..

    As an actor I do think David is one of the best on T.V.

    It doesn't hurt that he has to be the cutest white boy I have seen in a while. No but really he is one of the main actors in stargate Atlantis and he does help to make the show. I can not imagin an esposode with out him. He has evolved well in to the role he plays over the last few years. I can not waite to see what this season on Stargate Atlantis will bring and to see David again. Ow but it would be nice to see him with out his shirt..lol...moreless
