Michael Shanks: (describing his character on Stargate SG-1) Daniel is a dreamer, an idealist. He has a boyish curiosity and a love of humanity and life. He's driven to search out the best in people, and he has a very romantic viewpoint when it comes to history, life, love and people. He's the consummate optimist. He's always looking for answers - for what made us who we are today, what we've learned, what we can learn from others around us. At the same time looking for a home he can call his own, a place where he can hang his hat.
