During the San Diego Comic-Con this past July, MGM announced that Stargate would be returning to the small screen with a ten-episode digital series entitled Stargate Origins, and now comes word that Australian actress Ellie Gall has signed on for the lead role.
Gall, whose credits include A Place to Call Home, Puberty Blues and Mind Over Maddie, is set to play Catherine Langford, the daughter of Stargate Atlantis’ Professor Langford, once again played by Connor Trinneer. Also set to feature in the series 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.
“The opportunity to portray this iconic character is once in a lifetime,” said 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.”
The show, which will air on the new digital service Stargate Command, is set to follow “Catherine as she embarks on an unexpected adventure to unlock the mystery of what lies beyond the Stargate in order to save Earth from unimaginable darkness.”
