Andee Frizzell has many diverse talents. Andee’s mediums are teaching yoga, modeling, acting and writing. Andee has been teaching a unique style of yoga in Vancouver for many years, creating quite a following.

Last year she moved to Toronto to continue her passion for acting. In 2003 Andee booked the role of a lifetime, The Wraith Queen in the hit Science fiction spin-off series Stargate Atlantis by MGM Studios.

Cliff Simon has had an interesting life. He began a career training to compete in the 1984 Olympic Games.
However, after scraping ice off his car windshield at 5am every morning in England, for 3 years before heading off to swimming training, he decided the Olympics were not for him and headed back to sunny South Africa. Cliff performed all over the world in various stage productions as a dancer/acrobat, culminating in his dream role as a performer at the world famous Moulin Rouge, Paris in 1989.
On his return to South Africa, Cliff pursued his stage career as an actor. Cliff received major recognition as a model in South Africa and was asked to enter The Mr. South Africa talent and action man competition. On winning this competition in 1992, Cliff was offered an audition on a television series, called Egoli – Place of Gold.
After guest starring on the show for 3 months, he was offered a permanent contract as a regular cast member in a lead role and would go on to become a household name for his 6 year run.
Cliff later chose to immigrate to the USA with the hope of having a better quality of life. In 2000, Cliff secured an agent and soon landed a guest star role with Don Johnson on the hit TV series, Nash Bridges.
A short time after that, he acquired the guest star role of Ba’al on Stargate SG1. Cliff’s combination of charming bad guy charisma and wicked sense of humor made him a viewer favorite antagonist, keeping his character recurring for 5 seasons. In 2007, Cliff was brought back to play Ba’al in the Stargate SG1 movie called Stargate Continuum, which will be released in 2008. He has since appeared on NCIS, NCIS Los Angeles and 24.
Peter Williams is a Jamaican-born actor currently residing in Canada.
The majority of his work has been in television, including the role of the primary villain Apophis in the first eight seasons of Stargate SG-1.
However, he also appeared on the big screen in films such as Catwoman and The Chronicles of Riddick. He reprized his role in the MGM Stargate film, Continuum as the last defiant System Lord to stand against Ba’al.
Later, Peter took a life defining trip back to the Caribbean to become more familiar with his roots which he discussed in detail in an exclusive interview here at WHR You Decide.
Peter is also under non disclosure, currently involved with new series production and officially writing on a secret project to be announced in the near future in addition to writing for his own blog .
Peter is also known for his roles in Dead Like Me, Neon Rider, Da Vinci’s Inquest, and Stargate SG-1 Children of the Gods, Final Cut. Peter is the only Stargate star with an asteroid named after him, hence the 2036 T-Shirt picture above left. You can find out more about Asteroid Apophis, here.
