Chris Heyerdahl - What Others Say About Him
Excerpt - as reported by 'Play It Grand' on WormholeRiders.com
at the 2009 Vancouver Stargate convention:
"It´s really funny, because I´m just going to reveal something really silly. I, Amanda, love working with Chris Heyerdahl.
He´s a wonderful actor. And he´s so easy to fall in love with, like it´s so easy for Helen to fall in love with Druitt, because it´s Chris playing him and he plays him so beautifully and it´s so intense and it´s so swooning, I guess it the best word) whaaaaaa.
And Martin [Wood], every time he sees me sort of going that way where Helen is like dreamily starring up at Chris Heyerdahl), he keeps coming up to me and going, `Amanda, he´s a mass murderer! He killed women!´ (Bopping herself on the head) `Ah, oh, yeah, yeah!
But he´s the great love of Helen´s life. He´s her first love. This is passion at its finest and it´s transcended time and now, a hundred plus years later, here they are and he still makes her heart skip a beat.´ And Martin is like, `He killed women!´
So every time Chris and I have these moments, and of course we´re shooting right now so Helen and Druitt have had some pretty intense moments, we´ll be looking at each other, and Chris will go (dropping her voice to make it sound like his) `Remember I´ve killed women.´ So it´s kind of become a joke on our set. I can´t even look at Chris without him going, (takes her index fingers and makes an `x´ over her eye) `I´ve killed women´. Yep. So now Martin is embarrassed that he said that, but . . . (whispers) he´s killed women! It´s like haunting me."
David HewlettFrom the David Hewlett interview on the SciFiAustralia blog, July 30 2009
Captain: It’s quite the trip for Stargate Atlantis fans to see Todd the Wraith (Chris Heyerdahl) as Bigfoot on Sanctuary!
David Hewlett (laughs): I made the mistake of asking Chris once on Stargate Atlantis ‘what is it with you and prosthetics?’ and then he listed off all the parts that he’d been doing and it turned out he’s actually worked more than all of us on the show.
The Twilight SuperfanMay 8 and 9, a Twilight superfan was lucky enough to visit the set of New Moon in Vancouver
And she was kind enough to share the experience with other fans, writing a New Moon set visit report She was even able to meet Chris, and here's what she wrote about him:
"Christopher Heyerdahl as Marcus is also tall, with wavy dark hair, wearing a textured, gray and maroon robe and scarf; he had been in the tent reading most of the time."
"Heyerdahl, who plays Marcus, comes over and talks to us. He's quite intimidating and insanely tall with a stately profile, even though he's wearing corduroy slippers with his costume. He's friendly, asking us where we're from. Chris says he loves his hair and makeup: "They've done a beautiful job with it." He tells us that he's unfortunately not going to do any filming in Italy."
In her report she mentions actors dressed in black, with red contact lenses and an eerie white vampire makeup, so I guess we now have an idea how Marcus will look.
I visited Vancouver May 6 to 15 - this is as close as I got to the set ;-)
