The Scottish actor joins the "SGU Stargate Universe" cast as lead scientist Dr. Nicholas Rush of the Icarus program. Before the TV series, he made a name for himself as a former steel worker who along with his fellow mates create a male striptease act to earn money in "The Full Monty." His "exposure" led to many roles such as a Bond villain for "The World is Not Enough" to dodging zombies in "28 Weeks Later."

The Chinese-American actress is  the "SGU Stargate Universe" cast's Camille Wray, a high-ranking member of the International Oversight Committee for the Icarus program. No one can miss her lovely face in other TV roles such as "As the World Turns," "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," and "Two and a Half Men." These roles are definitely more memorable than her turn as Chun-Li Zang in the awful film "Street Fighter" based on the popular video game from Capcom.
