SciFi Diner Classic Ep. 8
Our Interview with Christopher Heyerdahl
(Sanctuary, Stargate, Supernatural, Smallville,
Twilight, and Caprica)
In our eighth episode of the SciFi Diner Classic, we interview Christopher Heyerdahl from Sanctuary, Stargate, Supernatural, Smallville, Twilight, and Caprica. Since we do a news and interview show, it goes without saying that the news portion of our episodes often date themselves fast. And while the interviews with the people that make Science Fiction happen remain relevant and in our opinion important, most listeners will not listen back 100 episodes and wade through old news just to get to the interview. So what the SciFi Diner Classic aims to do is to share these interviews with you. If you have been with us from the beginning, then bear with us as we introduce some of our newer listeners to voices from the past. We’re bringing you just the interview and nothing else.
Heyerdahl is known for his role as Leonid in the Are You Afraid of the Dark? episode “The Thirteenth Floor” and as Nosferatu in the episode “Midnight Madness”. He played the characters Halling and Wraith commander Todd in Stargate Atlantis, and Pallan in the Stargate SG-1 episode “Revisions“. He played H.P. Lovecraft in the movie Out of Mind (1998) and a punk, new at drug dealing, in Cadavres (2009).
He played the part of the demon Alastair in three episodes of Supernatural. He also played the part of Zor-El in the television series Smallville, as well as playing John Druitt and Bigfoot in the series Sanctuary.
He had a role in the film New Moon, an adaptation of Stephenie Meyer‘s second book in her Twilight Saga. In this film, he played a vampire, Marcus, who is part of a powerful Italian family called the Volturi.
