Paul McGillion Notes Importance of Fan Support

Paul McGillion attended the Wolf SG-11 Stargate Convention in London this weekend (November 11-12).

Several fans have reported that when asked if his character was being written out or whether he would be back in Season 4, he said he wasn’t allowed to talk about that until the Season 3 episodes air, but that the powers that be do listen to the fans. He also expressed his gratitude to all the fans who love Carson and are worried about his fate.

We take this to mean Paul appreciates what we’re doing as far as showing support for Beckett, and that we should continue to encourage fans to write and post expressions of their support. So please do take a moment to do that!

  1. aww paul so nice. i wish i could see him one day. although i live in down under perth (australia)

  2. I had the fortune of meeting Paul a few years ago, and he was such a nice person. Charming and very personable.

    I don’t know if I’ll be able to watch season four if he’s not in it.

  3. He was trully adorable at the con, staying up well into the early hours last night to chat to fans in the bar… and looking quite bemused at the goings on on the dancefloor!

  4. Paul was fantastic at SG11! He seems like an incredibly nice man, and I hope I get to see him at another con soon. I can’t imagine SGA without Carson…I hope they’re not doing anything stupid.

  5. paul is the best one of my fave ppl to meet and he has sucha good memory he rememberd me for sg8 lol

    he is the best

  6. Paul, is truely wonderful. And his character is wonderful.
    If they pull the plug on Carson it’s like pulling the plug on “wonderfulness”.

  7. I will be quite upset if they write Carson out, the character brings a lot of emotional depth and dimension to the show, and presents great ethical dilemmas. Not to mention, he plays off McKay so well, I can’t see Rodney functioning as well without him as the other best friend

  8. They CAN’T ditch Carson! He’s the best character on the show! Why would anyone watch it without him? WAHHHHHHH

  9. There is no way I will watch Atlantis if they kill off Carson Beckett!! I don’t mind as much if characters I like leave shows and are written out some other way (job transfer, or whatever), but if they die I am outta there! This is a pervasive theme on TV shows these days, killing off beloved characters, and I think it’s cheap, unoriginal (after all, everyone’s doing it) and a slap in the face to the fans. PLEASE keep Paul on Atlantis, or at least don’t kill his character, so I can keep on watching one of my favorite shows!

  10. THEY SHOULDN’T TAKE PAUL OFF THE SHOW,THAT WOULD BE LIKE TAKING “BONES” OFF THE OLD STAR TREK SERIES. KIRK WOULD NEVER HAVE ALLOWED THAT. CARSON IS SO MUCH LIKE THE ” BONES ” OF STAR TREK, JUST HAS A SCOTTISH ACCENT INSTEAD OF A SOUTHERN ONE.

    ” KEEP CARSON ON THE SHOW” . I T JUST WOULD NOT BE THE SAME WITH OUT HIM.

  11. Hi ! I’m french and I was at the Wolf-Event SG-11, I had a great time and I wanted just to say that I hope that Carson Beckett don’t will to die in the 3rd season
    Sorry if my english is very bad!
    See as soon! Bye

  12. Hi! I just found out about this and it’s sooooo distressing! I can’t imagine ATLANTIS without Carson! Why else did they add him to the opening credits just to get rid of him later! Makes NO sense to me! Carson (and Paul) added soooo much more to the show!

    Don’t think I could bring myself to watch any more if they get rid of him! Without Carson there would BE no Atlantis expedition since he was the one who discovered the ATA gene!

    I agree that it’s a cheap way to get rid of someone aaaand I have yet to hear WHY they want to get rid of him! CArson Beckett is as important to the show as John Sheppard or Rodney McKay! Who else can save the medical day if not Carson?

    YES I started out watching because of John Sheppard but Carson won my heart! Without him I just can’t watch any more! Same as when they killed off Lt. Colonel Paul Ironhorse on WAR OF THE WORLDS second season. I NEVER watched agaiin!

  13. Like Paul I’m a Paisley Buddy!! I can’t believe they’re gonna do this!! Please save Carson Beckett!! 🙁

  14. There is no way they can make the show function without Carson in it. For one thing, Rodney would go completely batty. For another, Carson is really the only one still concerned with the Ethics of what they are doing in the Pegasus Galaxy. He gives the show the moral and ethical grounding that they need to have, especially given the way things seem to be progressing. We need MORE of Carson, not LESS!

  15. Oh he’s such a sweetheart. I had the chance to meet him last year in France on a convention. I started watching the show because of him and I won’t be able to watch the fourth season if he’s not coming back!

  16. Im gutted! He is such an absolutely smashin guy and that reflets in the part he plays. The PTB must be offthere rockers, complete muppets!
    I adore this show. They are a team, more like a family reallly and to get rid of Carson is like removing an arm or a leg. No one can replace him.
    I have made a friend in Arkansaw who writes fanfic called Jana (Titan5) and she like me is furious.
    Please please dont get rid of him.
    We love ya Paul and are behind you. xx

  17. If this all turns out then I will be very disapointed. Is the current stargate show(s) policy to always wack out the doctor??

    Hello it’s been done. “heroes”..

  18. “…..no more drama…” Beckett’s character should stay… PERIOD! I was looking forward to his character having the first stable relationship between SG-1 and SG-A, since Jackson’s/Sha’ra. Wait! That didn’t work out. Sam…. no….

    Cadman????? Where are you? STARGATE, INC. needs a working relationship.

  19. The character is great. Please do not kill him off.
    I can’t believe you are doing it again. It didn’t work for you the first time with Sg1. Don’t make the same mistake again.
