Stargate SG1 was a very popular SciFi show that started in 1997 and ended back in 2007. It was a series that lasted 10 whole years! I was only 1 year old when the show started, which means I am almost the same age as the show, how weird! In these years, I have gone from baby to student, but the actors from the show have undergone some physical changes as well. We all remember Jack O'Neill and his "for crying out loud!" We all remember Teal'c. (Indeed). We all remember Daniel Jackson and all the times people thought he was dead. We all remember the times Samantha Carter saved all of their asses with that big brain of hers, but what do the actors look like now?
1. Richard Dean Anderson / Jack O'Neill
O'Neill has definitely changed a lot! Throughout the show, we have seen his hair go from brown to grey. The difference between Season 1 and 9 is really big. Richard Dean Anderson quit Stargate SG-1 after Season 9 to spend more time with his daughter and has not done much acting since. He has become quite the family man!
2. Amanda Tapping / Samantha Carter
Amanda Tapping a.k.a. Samantha Carter is now 49 years old but seems to have not changed that much. She got rid of her blond hair and got herself the brunette look. She recently went back to her blond hair, but you have got to admit that the brunette look fits her well! After Stargate-SG1 she used her own money to start a new TV-Show called Sanctuary which became a huge success. Since that show stopped in 2011, she has also had a minor role in the hit series Supernatural as the angel Naomi. She is currently more occupied with the role of director so she has moved behind the cameras but she will always be popular among fans.
3. Christopher Judge / Teal'c
Besides the obvious lack of forehead-tattoo and makeup, he has not changed much. Judge is now 50 years old. He is still acting all over the place, getting minor roles in a lot of productions. You may have seen him as one of Bane's henchmen in The Dark Knight Rises. With his history of playing football he often gets casted in roles that fit his muscular posture. When looking up the actor, it was great to see so many pictures of him smiling. Something that he did not get to do very often when playing Teal'c. (Indeed).
4. Michael Shanks / Daniel Jackson
As we can see, Michael Shanks is getting older. His grey hairs in his beard give away his age. With the age of 44, he is the youngest of the actors. Not having on the characteristic round glasses is also a huge change for the actor who played Daniel Jackson throughout all 10 seasons. He was not one of the main actors in Season 6 in which he only had some guest appearances, but he returned to the team again in Season 7. Michael Shanks has kept on acting in various TV-shows, like his amazing role in Smallville. Did you know he even married someone from the show? You might remember Doctor Lam from Season 9 and 10? They make a cute couple!
OTHER CHARACTERS WE LOVE!
5. Teryl Rothery / Janet Fraiser
She has also gotten a bit older, but the blonde hair looks great on her! She is now 52 years old and still acting in a lot of Sci-Fi series. Can't take the Sci-Fi out of the actor, right?
6. Don Davis / George Hammond
For those of you that do not know, I am sad to tell you that Don Davis died in 2008. We all loved his character General Hammond. He left the show after Season 7 due to health problems. He still has some guest appearances in later episodes but he died of a heart attack only one year after the end of SG1. R.I.P.
