Ben Browder is best known for his incredible portrayal of ‘John Crichton’ on Farscape. What started out as a modern day “Buck Rogers” story quickly became a entity all its own and garnered one of the most loyal fan bases known in any universe. After Farscape came to an end, he popped up in the last two seasons of another much loved sci-fi show, Stargate: SG1 as ‘Lt. Colonel Cameron Mitchell’. He reprised the role in two follow up made-for-TV movies. To many fans delight he even found his way into Doctor Who for an episode!
Mr. Browder stopped by Denver Starfest 2013 and was kind enough to give up some time for a few interviews, including the one below! (There were some technical difficulties with one of the camera shots so this one looks a little one-sided, but the important half is intact.)
We talk about his first steps into sci-fi as a fan, the many facets of Farscape and the project that just can’t seem to get off the ground, Naught for Hire.
