For the pilot it was basically, we were all sort of on probation, they could’ve gotten rid of anyone of us at the end of the pilot so we were all on our very best behaviour, said all the lines that were written and then after the pilot I went up to [the writers] and I said, “Look, women don’t really talk like this.”
“And, can we make this character more fully realised and can we make her just an intrical part of the team without actually putting a red flag on the fact that she’s a woman, all the time?”
‘Cause it gets boring. It’s like constantly putting a red flag on the fact that Teal’c is an alien! He really is! He is an alien! Well, I’m a girl! …you know… What’s the point?
