‘Stargate Origins’ Finds It’s Cast!
A few months ago, the news dropped we would be getting a new tv show in the Stargate franchise called ‘Stargate Origins‘. Releasing exclusively online via their new Stargate Command website/app, the series follows Catherine Langford, whose father discovered the original Earth Stargate.
Taking the role of Catherine will be Australian actress Ellie Gall (‘Blind’, ‘A Midsummer’s Nightmare’). She is a crucial figure in the Stargate saga, as she was responsible for bringing Daniel Jackson on board to translate the markings on the original Stargate, which led to the adventures we all came to know and love.
“The opportunity to portray this iconic character is once in a lifetime,” commented Gall, “I’m thrilled to be a part of the Stargate family and I hope Stargate fans are as equally excited as I am about Catherine Langford’s new adventure.”
Catherine Langford is a character whose life remains somewhat shrouded in mystery. The show will dive deep into the adventures that provide additional context to Catherine’s lifelong fascination with the ancient artifact her father uncovered in the Egyptian desert, revealing a story that sits at the heart of the entire Stargate saga.
Re-joining the Stargate franchise is Connor Trinneer, who played Lastlight/Michael Kenmore the Human-Wraith Hybrid in ex-‘Stargate: Atlantis’. You’ll also recognise him as Trip on ‘Star Trek: Enterprise’ and from popping up on shows such as ‘Suits’, ‘NCIS: Los Angeles’, and ‘Pretty Little Liars’. He will play Professor Paul Langford, father of Catherine, and the man whose archaeological dig uncovered the Stargate back in 1929.
Joining Trinneer and Gall in the cast are Salome Azizi, Philip Alexander, Michelle Jubilee Gonzalez, Daniel Rashid, Sarah Navratil, Shvan Aladdin, Tonatiuh Elizarraraz, Derek Chariton, Justin Michael Terry and Lincoln Werner Hoppe, with more information on those roles to be released in the coming weeks.
The first season of ‘Stargate Origins‘ will consist of 10 x 10-minute episodes released exclusively on their Stargate Command subscription service, which also allows you to stream all the original Stargate series and movies. No news on exactly when the new series will be released, but we’ll keep you updated when we know more!
