Michael Shanks - Rotten Tomatoes

Michael Shanks

Dreamed of playing professional hockey as a teen. Studied business in college but switched to theater after failing a calculus course. Was inspired to pursue an acting career after seeing future Stargate SG-1 costar Richard Dean Anderson shoot a scene from MacGyver on a Vancouver beach. Performed at the Stratford Shakespeare Festival for two seasons. Met his wife, Lexa Doig, while guest-starring in an episode of her sci-fi series, Gene Roddenberry's Andromeda. Played hockey on the Stargate SG-1 team that competed against other productions, such as Smallville, that also shot in British Columbia.
