Trivia -
Winner of our trivia question from last week is fourpeanuts. Congrats! The question was: In the Harry Potter movies, Richard Harris originally did not intend to take the role of Dumbledore. Why and what changed his mind? The correct answer was: His own health was in decline, but his then 11 year old granddaughter threatened to never speak to him again unless he took the role.
This week's question: In Stargate SG-1, Richard Dean Anderson played Jack O'Neill to Don S. Davis' George Hammond. But they have an earlier TV connection. The answer is 3 parts: what is the earlier show? What was Richard Dean Anderson's role in it? and What 3 roles ("roles") did Don S. Davis have in it? ****Post your answer to this week's trivia question from the vidcast in the episode 11 thread in our Ravelry group.****
