Stargate SG-1 Cast: Where Are They Now?

After all of those years stepping through the Gate, what does one do when they get time off?

Stargate Sg1

Stargate SG-1 ran from 1997 - 2007. As such, there were a lot of characters that passed through the Gate and, to both the writers and actors credits, they were mostly highly memorable. Taking over from where the Stargate 1994 film left off, the series would take things in a more light-hearted direction, even though it would sprinkle drops of horror throughout.

Characters live. Characters die. Some come back. Some are from different universes. It can be a little daunting to take on the entire spectrum of characters for SG-1 (do you have ten weeks to spare to watch all ten seasons?!) but this list picks 23 of the most memorable to follow up on and see where they are now in their careers.

Though some of the actors have sadly left us, Stargate SG-1 has offered an enduring legacy for all involved.

23. Jay Acovone

Stargate Sg1

Although Acovone didn't originate the role of Kawalsky (the character appeared in the Stargate 1994 film portrayed by a different actor), he completely made the character his own, even if he only appeared in the show for a brief stint.

Kawalsky is quickly taken by a Goa'uld symbiont and that could have been the end of him, but Acovone endeared himself to fans so much that the character was brought back thanks to the alternate reality mirror.

Acovone had been acting for years before joining the show, appearing in a small role in Independence Day as well. Since SG-1, he has appeared on CSI, NCIS, Vegas and The Mentalist. He also provided the voice and motion capture for Sal Marcana, in the video game Mafia III.

In 2017, he performed, along with Adrian Paul, the audio-book version of Wildcards: Dead Man's Hand, by George R.R. Martin.
