Amanda Tapping: Nerdage’s #13 actress
Amanda Tapping is Nerdage’s #13 actress with geek appeal. She played Samantha Carter in “Stargate SG1″ and “Stargate Atlantis.” She now stars in and executive produces “Sanctuary.” The third season of “Sanctuary,” in which she plays Dr. Helen Magnus, is in production now, and the second season comes to DVD this June.
Last fall, she talked to Nerdage about “Sanctuary”:
The show is shot primarily on green screen, using virtual sets.
“Building sets the size and the scope of the Sanctuary is nearly impossible,” said Tapping, who is also an executive producer of the show. “It gave us so much more freedom in terms of where we shot and how we shot, and places that we could go.”
Tapping said using green screen allowed for many more locations to become part of the show.
“In Season 1, we were everywhere from the Bermuda triangle to the Himalayas to the catacombs under Rome,” she said. The first season of “Sanctuary” came to DVD last month.
