Amanda Tapping Announced for a Convention in Basingstoke

Amanda has been announced as a guest for the Basingstoke Comic Con 2024, which will take place May 10-12, 2024, at the Hampshire Court Hotel. Richard Dean Anderson will also attend the convention. Basingstoke Comic Con’s guest list last year included several Stargate guests like Paul McGillion, Joe Flanigan, Ben Browder, Michael Shanks, Gary Jones, Rachel Luttrell and Rainbow Sun Francks, so chances are that we will get more Stargate guests. Fingers crossed! Tickets are available at https://www.basingstokecomiccon.com.


Amanda Tapping at the DGC Podcast

Amanda has been a guest on the fourth episode of the DGC Podcast. Produced by the Directors Guild of Canada National Directors Division, the DGC Podcast lets filmmakers discuss their craft. With Amanda having experience both in front and behind the camera, the episode focuses on tools to communicate with actors as a director. Amanda talks about her first directing experience in Stargate, what is important to her as a director, what to do when losing actors, mistakes directors make, working with child actors and what to do when the actors struggle with emotional/sensitive scenes. She particularly emphasizes the importance of creating a safe space to get a good performance. Listen to the half-hour podcast at Apple Podcasts or Spotify.


Embracing Mental Health as a Fandom – Part 2


On June 3rd, Amanda did an event at The Companion where she talked about mental health and fandom. You can watch 
the full video at The Companion after registering. The Companion has also published blog posts related to the interview: Why Fandom is Good for Your Mental Health, and Amanda Tapping Speaks Frankly About Her Mental Health

Amanda stated that she’d like the conversation to continue, and The Companion just announced the date for the next event. It will take place on September 16th; the exact time is yet to be announced. Like the last time, it will be an hour-long livestream followed by group chat sessions. We will keep you updated here, but you can also join the waiting list at The Green Room to be notified when bookings go on sale.


News from LFCC – Updated

With the Writers Guild of America being forced to strike to fight for a fair contract, Amanda only has one new upcoming project: She’ll be directing a new Canadian series Wild Cards, in the fall. The series is based in Vancouver and is a crime-solving procedural with a comedic twist. It follows Ellis, a detective, and Toni, a scammer, who solve crimes together.

Updated: I nearly forgot this important info: Amanda has told her agents that she’s open to acting again, so maybe we’ll get to see her in front of the camera again!

Updated: There’s a post on social media quoting Amanda saying she will be involved in “the” new Stargate series. That is not true. This post has the information about that.

On a different note: captain-sassy-socks collected videos for the birthday project for Amanda during LFCC. Thank you so much, captain-sassy-socks! If you haven’t participated yet, there’s still time to do so until the end of the month. You can find the info here. Also, I heard that some people were hesitant about doing a video because they felt weird about seeing/hearing themselves. If it helps, only Amanda will see the finished video. If everyone participating is okay with it, all the participants will also get the finished version, but if not, it only will be Amanda. The video will not be public.


Online Interview on Mental Health – Updated

Amanda had anounced that she’d be doing a talk about mental health at The Companion back in 2020, when she did the interview ‘Uplifting Women in Film and TV ‘. The Companion now announced that the event will take place on June 3rd, 2023. First there will be an 1-hour interview, followed by exclusive green room video calls with four groups of five fans. Find out more and get your ticket now at The Companion!

If Amanda or Stargate or the fandom has had a positive influence on your mental health, you can now share it with The Companion for the interview.

Update: You can now watch the full video at The Companion after registering. The Companion has also published two blog posts related to the interview: Why Fandom is Good for Your Mental Health and Amanda Tapping Speaks Frankly About Her Mental Health
