Posts about Christopher Judge
The man is possibly one of the most underrated actors working today. I never cease to be amazed upon rewatching SG1 just how impressed each time I am with Christopher Judge’s acting. Every science-fiction team show has the big dumb alien muscle guy. Not always dumb but usually hotheaded. It would be so easy to sleepwalk through that kind of role. But Judge took a page out of Worf’s handbook, although it took Michael Dorn a long time to make Worf an interesting character.
I love seeing the times where he gets to either play somebody else or play an earth version of himself, anytime he’s some thing different he really shines. You can see that his natural demeanor is nothing like Teal’c.
He mentioned in an interview how much of a pain in the a$$ it was to continually stay buff for the role. And I’m pretty sure he got buffer as time went on. I’ll bet he was really glad to eat a hamburger with a bun still on when the show ended.
He’s done a lot of voice acting, but it’s a shame that he hasn’t been in more live action things since Stargate. He’s a great actor and I continue to be impressed with all the subtlety and grace he brought to the role of Teal’c. I never had the chance to meet him when I was working even though I did a couple of graphics for a Stargate. A friend of mine goes to a lot of conventions and she said he was one of the friendliest actors she had ever met.
Just off the top of my head: Chewbacca.
The big ass dude from Andromeda.
Chris Judge is the only SG-1 member I've yet been able to get a photo/autograph of. He just never seems to come to Phoenix!! Well, my girlfriend knows this and for my birthday got me a Cameo! He ALMOST did a live video chat, but said he doesn't do those so got the recorded message.
I'd post it here, but he uses full names a couple times and I'd like to try to stay "anonymous" (cough) on the Interwebs.
So yes, be jealous, I got a message from Teal'c AND Kratos!! Got the "indeed" at the end too!
