The Stargate site Gateworld has posted the tribute Don S. Davis: 1942-2008. The article, which chronicles the actor’s career, reveals that Davis had left his weekly role of General Hammond on Stargate SG-1 because of health problems. Davis passed away June 29, 2008.
It took the impressive Beau Bridges to create a character who could fill the void Davis left on SG-1. Still, Stargate fans will always remember General Hammond and the actor who played him. Davis was 65. One of his final performances will appear in the movie Stargate Continuum.
Gateworld also includes an interesting teaser, Wright: Stargate Universe news may be close. Stargate Universe, if it happens, would become the third live action Stargate TV series.
