Amanda Tapping is beloved around the world for iconic roles on Stargate SG-1 and Sanctuary and her ever-growing list of television directing credits (including an impressive run as an executive producer on the cult favourite Freeform series Motherland: Fort Salem); Sabrina Rani Furminger is host of the YVR Screen Scene Podcast. Since Amanda and Sabrina’s first interview together in January 2013 (for a Westender cover story entitled “What’s next for Amanda Tapping?”), the pair have grown to become dear friends. In late November 2022, the pals packed their bags and flew to Paris, where Amanda was scheduled to appear at Paris Manga alongside her former Stargate SG-1 co-star Richard Dean Anderson – and while sipping bubbly beverages at a sidewalk bistro on the eve of the convention, they decided to record an episode of the YVR Screen Scene Podcast. Tune in as Amanda and Sabrina break with the podcast’s usual studio format and discuss their decade of friendship, the last days of Motherland: Fort Salem, Richard Dean Anderson, and what comes next.
