Matthew Bennett: (talking about if he's like his character on "Battlestar Galatica") I'm not like Doral in my real life, although we do share the same kind of focus. If I decide I want to do something, I usually get it done.
Matthew Bennett: The acting business is a very strange and difficult business at the best of times and it certainly can put you through a lot of ups and downs. My wife is someone who understands that entirely and has helped me steer through so much in my career. She's also the ultimate travelling companion.
Matthew Bennett: To an extent I enjoy working as an actor in the sci-fi genre a little more. I think that overall, there's more freedom when it comes to storylines and possibilities within those stories, and I also enjoy the fact that I can get out of my world for a few moments.
Matthew Bennett: (on moving to Vancouver) There were lots of opportunities for me in Toronto, but I felt a need to move away. I was at a point in my life where I needed a completely different experience. I guess in part I was trying to re-invent myself.
Matthew Bennett: I like the themes that can be explored in science fiction very much. I think the genre allows us to look at our lives and explore the world we inhabit in a very interesting perspective.
Matthew Bennett: (on which character he enjoyed playing in "Stargate" more) Definitely Jared Kane. I was fortunate no to have to wear anything weird on my head and I was also fortunate with the episodes. There was a lot to play with. I also got to work with Michael Shanks who's good for some laughs. We had a good time on set.
Matthew Bennett: (on why he decided on acting) It seemed like a good fit. I was eighteen when I made the decision. I had considered other professions but I got a part in a play and I enjoyed every aspect of it. I felt focused. I thought it would be a great way to make a living.
