GIGGEROTA - hi john had the most fun with giggy, identify most with the character I am playing now in my new series how she fights for what she wants and wants justice in the world. I hate inhumanity so does this character
Mmlover - Cesare "PATTY, which of Laleen's quotes did you enjoy the most? It's just that I loved the way she spoke - especially "Love leaks puke juice" was a marvellous one.

PATTY_Z - I kind of overdid it...i got pretty hyper playing bunny and that scene took a whole day to shoot
Gela - Ramses> Question to both Did any serious talks eventuate regarding a Lexx spinoff or movie?
GIGGEROTA - yes there were some talks and rumours about that spinoff Ramses
GIGGEROTA - but ultimately it it up to the producers and more importantly
PATTY_Z - there were "serious" talks about it when we wrapped but nothing since as far as I know.. Besides us hoping!

Gela - oh yeah, I think we're all glad he's ok now again
Mmlover - Yes, good to hear he's on the road to recovery
GIGGEROTA - yes he is on the road to recovery
Gela - sadgeezer> What was the most difficult thing you had to do on the lexx show
GIGGEROTA - most difficult thing for me on lexx was learning how to play golf convincingly as the pope in apocalexx now to knock balls at president and stanley on hard rock
PATTY_Z - most difficult thing I had to do acting wise on lexx was working wirh green screen... Pretendingn things were on fire. Etc
Chatins - PATTY You have acted on stage, in film, and of course in a television series. What are the differences and which do you prefer?
GIGGEROTA - stage= immediate reaction love the audience , the performer has more control tv more of a producers medium film more of a directors medium. Tv gets you more of an audience then stage so we get to meet people like you
PATTY_Z - I love acting in all mediums.. Theatre is great because you get to take a journey every night and you get to do it in sequence.. And the audience's energy is amazing.. But film and tv is so fun too becuase you can be a lot subtler.. And there is more of a family vibe and it's just different.. P
Mmlover - mayaxxx " forPATTY, did you prefer Bunny season or 4?
Gela - Phil_Melb_Aust> Question for GIGGEROTA > Ellen you did a lot of green screen work, have you been able to utilize that skill on other projects?

GIGGEROTA - we are happy when we get work because it is a very tough biz
PATTY_Z - yes ellen is a huge zentilli supporter and a great friend
GIGGEROTA - I emailed rolf to come on but he is busy today
Gela - oh well, maybe next time ellen, it would be nice to have him in the chat as well

PATTY_Z - Paul is great. Kind of intimidating sometimes.. But he can get really excited about shooting a scene and I love that!
Mmlover - Cesare " Ellen, who was more fun? The Queen or The Pope? And was the water in queen's bath cold or hot?
GIGGEROTA - the queen was an immense challenge physically I was wearing a wig a head piece that was so so heavy and a wetsuit the water started warm and got colder. I didn't want to get out of the water though because it was a freezing cold bunker we were shoooting in outside of Berlin
PATTY_Z - you were amazing in that scene.. So coo coo!
GIGGEROTA - thanksPATTY, so I would say queen was more challenging I had great fun in both roles the pope was delicious too
Gela - Karuba> Ellen - What led GIGGEROTA to dining on people? Sheer love of humanity?
GIGGEROTA - GIGGEROTA was just misunderstood maybe she didn't like church because in the beginning she was eating alot of clerics hee heeh ee
Mmlover - mayaxxx " for Ellen, was there any ad-libbing going on during scenes? And if so, which ones did they keep?
Gela - Karuba> Ellen, Is Gigerotta 10percent human? Because she does end up on Fire it appears she is, but then how do you explain the tongue?

Gela - sadgeezer can't ask PATTY about the shower scene coz he's too shy )
PATTY_Z - I might punch you again sad geezer.. He he you can ask about the shower scene go ahead.
iStan - *pigface* to all I really liked the mantrid character, played by dieter laser.......how was it to work with him?
Gela - Ramses> Question to both Fans have attempted to grasp the big picture meaning that Donovan had, when creating Lexx. Some say it was the continuing cycles of life (as in reincarnationregeneration). As 'insiders,' do you have any clarification on this you would share with us?
PATTY_Z - I have no insights.. Just when I thought I understood what was going on.. I would get confused again.. Luckily my character was confused too. I do think paul liked exploring cylces though.. Life after death.. Etc.. But you would have to ask him
GIGGEROTA - ramses - fabulous question- I am sure there are aspects of that in the show but when you talk to paul donovan not all of it is conscious it is very confusing but compelling and we would just dive in
PATTY_Z - especially becuase I only joined lexx season two..
GIGGEROTA - even though I was there from the beginning, we all would sometimes be confused brian is very good and explaining this stuff
PATTY_Z - hi flamegrape!
iStan - *angelbacch* PATTY and Ellen, do you ever visit the Lexx fan sites in Internet?
GIGGEROTA - I do check the sites now and then haven't in awhile
PATTY_Z - yes! I sometimes read posts... And I have a website that james miller has made for me www.zentillizone.com it is kind of out of date at the moment.. But I often check it out
GIGGEROTA - www.ellendubin.com is a great way now to get to my site created by the fabulous scifisuzi she is amazing

***PATTY_Z (pattyz@HSE-Montreal-ppp133473.qc.sympatico.ca) has left #lexxchat
GIGGEROTA - BYE BUNNY
Gela - we're still waiting for brian... any more questions for ellen? )
GIGGEROTA - Guys i just left anothe message for brian i hope he is ok
GIGGEROTA - Not answering his phone
iStan - He had to go to an appointment about an hour and half ago.
GIGGEROTA - I have another ten minutes so please email me more questions
GIGGEROTA - I did speak to brian a few days ago, and he really wanted to do this chat
iStan - I talked to him two hours ago on the phone and he said that he would be here.
iStan - *angelbacch* Ellen, was there a reason why Giggerota was so interested in Stan, not for example Xev?
GIGGEROTA - oh I had some fun times with xev, what you don't know is I was supposed to do queen opposite xenia but she was sick
GIGGEROTA - the script was written for the two of us very sexy
GIGGEROTA - so brian was written into the script instead
Gela - Risqman asked a while ago, do you have any hobbys Ellen? (sorry Risqman had to edit this - gela)
GIGGEROTA - I love movies, eating chocolate and spending time with family and friends
Gela - <Goryn> Ellen, I would like to thank you and all other, who has sent letters with the condolences in Russia after events in the beginning of autumn. It is very important for us. Only Lexx-stuff so care about fans and other people in all corners of the world
GIGGEROTA - goryn I was so devastated by that, I still can't believe it, I never will stop thinking about that. I care a lot, my father is russian
iStan - How did you get into acting Ellen?
GIGGEROTA - I got into acting because I was a shy child so my parents put me into ballet classes and I fell in love with performing on stage
GIGGEROTA - I wasnt' as tall then, and we would do shows and I loved the audience reaction then I did alot of theatre musicals, like Patty I sing and dance too and then did tv etc
Gela - <Karuba> Ellen - Canada seems to produce some interesting programs and movies but is low on quantity. Do you have any ideas about what our Canadian industry might need to produce more things like the Lexx?
Mmlover - mayaxxx " you're the only non-permanent cast member to be in all seasons of Lexx, you should be considered a Regular
GIGGEROTA - yes I call myself a recurring character mayaxxxx
GIGGEROTA - mayaxxx I was in from the beginning so I saw all the changes, and paul donovan always wanted the giggy presence in different bodies and guises, what a great concept to play different characters with diff looks but have some of the same traits
GIGGEROTA - yes they need more money from government funding, we have the talent definitely but they don't spend money on production values like a buffy the vampire slayer does or an angel did. Those shows look great. Can u imagine if lexx had that kind of money and look how well it turned out
Gela - Ubertoaster> Ellen - did Rolf and Brian suffer in the scene(s) when you were hitting golf balls at them?
GIGGEROTA - yes they did more because of the extreme heat
GIGGEROTA - it was so so hot we shot that scene in thailand at an old temple, it was over a hundred degrees and humid and it would rain then get sunny, so it was weird weather. The golf balls hitting them were done in post
Gela - hehehe
iStan - I'm on the phone with BD right now. He's trying to get on.
GIGGEROTA - ah great tell brian I miss him
Gela - paintedpony> Ellen Is Dubin a Russian name?
Gela - <Goryn> Ellen, I know about your father. By the way, our surnames differ all on one letter. My surname - Gubin )
GIGGEROTA - hi gubin, yes dubinskaya something like that back back back
Gela - scifisuzi> Ellen, how long did you have to practice hitting golf balls before you shot that s
GIGGEROTA - I trained for about a month but on grass not on hard old stone
GIGGEROTA - so I didn't expect that and the temple walls were very narrow so lots to maneuver
GIGGEROTA - is brian on?
Gela - he's talking to istan on the phone right now, ellen
GIGGEROTA - good maybe he is trouble getting on
GIGGEROTA - I don't want to desert the fans untill he can take over
Gela - funket> Ellen, from your whole body of work, what role did you find the most challenging?
GIGGEROTA - most challenging would be a stage role where I was onstage talking fo rtheree hours straight in A MOON FOR THE MISBEGOTTEN
GIGGEROTA - Tv role most dificult would be earth final conflict I had tons of dialogue in that and the producers wanted it to be word perfect
iStan - *thefrey* ellen what do you want Santa to bring YOU for Christmas?
GIGGEROTA - I want to have a big partyfor all the fans at my house! For xmas
Gela - that would be a VERY big party then, ellen ))
GIGGEROTA - yes a big party gela, great food
GIGGEROTA - I love to eat just like giggy but FOOD ONLY

Gela - Karuba> Ellen - what do you like to watch (on t.v. Or movies) when you kick back and relax?
GIGGEROTA - comedies, romantic ones and sometimes scary movies, all kinds

Chatins - I think istan may post some Q&A for Brian.
Gela - he's still talking to brian on the phone
GIGGEROTA - ah ok
Gela - Cesare> Ellen, is there any role or type you would like to get a chance to play? Like - I dunno - first victim of the killer in a giallo thriller or so...;-)
GIGGEROTA - love to play opposite liam neeson jeff bridges viggo mortensen
Mmlover - Good choices ;)
GIGGEROTA - it would be great to do a lord of the rings type trilogy
iStan - Okay. BD is ready for questions.
Gela - Karuba> Ellen - do you have any keepsakes from your time with the Lexx, get to keep any costumes?
GIGGEROTA - yes I do, I have the popes visor and ring. Someone bought giggy's outfits. I have all the original scripts notes production notes, I have call sheets. I keep a huge file and I have pics still that no one has seen. I add them now and then to my website. tons of pics I took with my camera

iStan - *thefrey* Brian, what part will you be playing in the Borgia's
iStan/Brian - A very pious man, Cardinal de Mella.... Quite the opposite of dear old Stanley
iStan/Brian - *funket* Brian, what was the most difficult scene for you to play in Lexx?
iStan/Brian - Obviously the kissing of the ladies.
Gela - ok now we have brian on the phone...any more questions for brian?
Gela - Brunnen-G> To Brian - If we are in some of the lexx passageways and we look up - what we could see ?-- because the camera have never shown us this

Ramses> Brian, thanks for joining us. Hope you are on the mend.
Gela - yes that's the best way now
thefrey> Yes, glad you are feeling better Brian.
iStan/Brian - It was my decision. I decided that there is a limit to torture.
paintedpony> Whose torture, yours or ours?
funket> Glad to hear you're on the mend.
Karuba> Brian - how is the recovery coming along? Are you done all your surgery now?
iStan/Brian - We're in unmoderated mode. Post your questions directly.
Ser-J> Brian do you like have sex with you self or with 790? It is very interest question!!!
thefrey> Brian do you have any idea who will be playing the Borgias?
iStan/Brian - One of the main actors is a British actor named Brian Blessed, who has played in a number of Kenneth Brannagh films and will be doing one afterwards. I am the only Canadian actor with a significant role.
iStan/Brian - Casting was done in Italy, Spain, and England.
Mmlover - Great, Brian.
iStan/Brian - Thanks for all of the nice wishes.
thefrey> Well congrats then, ;D I can't wait to see it.
funket> Brian Blessed is a fine actor, wonderful in Black Adder.
Ramses> i've been told I'd make a great Borgia. D
funket> Is it the Borgias, I'm so disappointed, I thought it was the Borg.
Goblin> heh heh
Ramses> ...or Erzebet Bathory.
Karuba> LOL, funny funket
Mmlover - Brian, any upcoming projects that you've worked or will be working on?
scifisuzi> Brian, just wanted to send my wishes for a fast recovery. My dad had his jaw broken in several places years ago, so I can imagine what you look like. I wish you the best, and hope your holiday is relaxing and with little pain.
Phil_Melb_Aust> Brian "you are THE man

mayaxxx> Ser-J, please
Ser-J> it was a joke))
Ser-J> I love lexx
Ser-J> sorry for a question
Gela - Brian, are you going to attend any conventions next year?
iStan/Brian - I'm negotiating with someone who is going to do the first sci-fi convention in Newfoundland. Other than that it's still a little earlier.
Ramses> Brian, do you have anything else lined up, after the Borgia project?
iStan/Brian - Wednesday past the surgeon told me that the healing was what he would expect six months down the road.
iStan/Brian - So i'll be able eat my Christmas dinner rather than drink it.
Mmlover - Ahh good to hear your on the mend.
mayaxxx> great, it must be tough to be on a liquid diet, I can just imagine the pain
Cesare> I tried to think of some interesting question, but my brain refuses to work properly... So... Greetings and hugs for you. It's great to hear that you'll be able to enjoy your christmas dinner...-)
angelbacchae> that's great to hear Brian!
* dreams_of_kai hugs Brian
dreams_of_kai> Glad you're doing so well!
iStan/Brian - More solid food.
Cesare> I was lucky enough to win a bottle of la fee absinthe in a contest, so I promise that the first glass i'll drink i'll think of you and wish for even speedier recovery, brian...-)
iStan/Brian - Thanks dreams_of_kai. Hugs all around.
Mmlover - Brian, What memoribilia have you kept from the show?
iStan/Brian - Underwear. I've kept underwear and gifts that i've received from cast members.
XS4Xevr> 04No Questions but just wanted to say Hi! Brian!
Ramses> pardon my lateness, but what happened with this accident? Auto accident? When did it occur?
mayaxxx> Hey thanks for making those tapes of the eps and outtakes available, very nice of you to do that
paintedpony> How much weight have you lost during the past weeks?
iStan/Brian - Funny story. As I was getting ready to leave the hospital the dietician said that if I lost more than two pounds a week for two weeks I was to call her immediately. Second day at home I weighed myself. I'd gained 1pounds. However, now I'm ten pounds underweight.
Brunnen-G> Brian are you keep in touch with Paul Donovan - And do you know if he wants to make a lexx sequel - if not a movie then a book or something?
iStan/Brian - I keep in regular touch with Paul, and he has moved on from Lexx. He wants to do other single projects- one-offs. Although he is considering making the Borgias a series.
Cesare> I hope that the Borgias will reach czech republic, too...
Goryn> and in russian
funket> Brian, juts want to pass on my appreciation for you taking the time to join us.
Ubertoaster> Lost my broadband connection - made it back on dial-up... Had to be here to wish Brian all the best for his recovery.
dmx_RR> Someone know where can I download games?
mayaxxx> try a game chat room
dmx_RR> yes but I don't know one...
Cesare> Brian, was there any scene that was particularly difficult to shoot because of actors still cracking up? Though I can imagine there were more of them.
funket> Brian, were the any written scenes in Lexx where you thought, hell, I can't do that!
iStan/Brian - Yes. All the scenes that happened to occur between a.m and 1p.m.
iStan/Brian - We had lots of discussions about script content and intention.
iStan/Brian - Differences of opinion did arise.
iStan/Brian - But nobody ever refused to do a scene that was a reasonable scene.
Mmlover - Brian, What was your favorite epsidode in Lexx? I"ve seen some of the dailies and it seems that you all had quite a good time filming.
iStan/Brian - Hmmm. Because of the nature of the scenario a lot of material in Season 2 and in Season 4 was really fun. A difficult question to answer because we did a lot of block shooting. That means on any given day we might shoot bits from different episodes in random order.
iStan/Brian - My favourite thing to look at is the outtakes and the Season wrap reel.
Brunnen-G> I watched it - it is very funny
Ubertoaster> back in a bit...
paintedpony> Brian, do you still see the other cast members now and then?
iStan/Brian - I see more crew members than cast members because there are very few cast members in Halifax and a lot of crew members live here.
iStan/Brian - I haven't seen or heard from Eva since we wrapped Terminal at the beginning of Season 2.
Phil_Melb_Aust> Brian have they caught the bastards who attacked you?
thefrey> Word is you did not enjoy the bedroom shoot on water as much as the writers thought you would. Supposedly, they wrote that scene to make up for having poor Stan always locked up in some painful position. Is this true? D
iStan/Brian - First of all, people had asked 'Will Stanley ever get laid?'
iStan/Brian - We wanted to have Stanley overlaid. Now, the downside of shooting that scene occurred near the end when I had women sitting on my back. Three is not better than one.
Ramses> i'll be(t) that was excruciating at times to film.
funket> I thought Stan was laid back in the "movies" *"Squeals" with delight*
mayaxxx> nope, not until Boomtown
Ramses> lol funket.
funket> there was the flashback with feppo and Smoor
Ramses> shamey shamey
Cesare> What about White trash?
Ramses> but he got them back. :D
funket> Indeed, Stan's the man!
Goblin> and Love Grows lol
Ramses> or Love Grows.
funket> Yep :)
Ubertoaster> yeah! Shock
angelbacchae> not forgetting Nook.. :)
Cesare> Trip was the best though..:.-)
*** Phil_Melb_Aust is now known as flipper
Brunnen-G> Brian have you ever met Marty Simon - and if yes - what do you think of him as a person?
Brunnen-G> cause we do not know many things for him
Ramses> that's a good question, BG
iStan/Brian - I met Marty a number of times. He's a very bright man, very articulate, talented, and a very, very sharp businessman.
iStan/Brian - We get along really well.
iStan/Brian - I'm the only one of the cast who still sends him Christmas cards.
iStan/Brian - Bruce Mcdonald sends me subscriptions to upscale magazines.
Dragonflygurl> What was it like been a chess piece in the game?
* Ubertoaster loved that episode
funket> And, having not since the Game, this goes out to anyone... Which piece on the board did he play? not seen
Goblin> Black Knight
Ubertoaster> balck knights
Ubertoaster> Neither of them died! O)
Cesare> He proved to be a very useful and significant piece if I remember well..
Goblin> such a great eppy
Cesare> Am I right Brian? -)
Goryn> Stan - the real man! (equipment included)
iStan/Brian - Very uncomfortable. We had to stand on boxes and put our heads through a hole in a plywood platform. Try being a bowling pin sometime.
paintedpony> What's more fun Brian, chatting via istan or direct mode? :-D
iStan/Brian - Well, this way I get to have two forms of conversation.
scifisuzi> 11Brian, were you able to keep your #red cap?
iStan/Brian - I have a #hat. I don't wear it all the time.
funket> Brian, were you a prankster on the set? Any memorable gags pulled by anyone?
iStan/Brian - There usually wasn't time for gags.
funket> I understand, a tight ship.
Goblin> didn't 790 have a gag? ;P
iStan/Brian - Very tight schedule and always something happening on the floor. You didn't want to screw up someone's concentration. That didn't mean we didn't have fun. We told jokes, played with lines- things necessary to stay sane.
paintedpony> too bad this stuff hasn't survived on tape
Mmlover - Brian, When is the newfoundland con happening that you spoke of earlier, and any plans to do any in the U.S. in the future?
iStan/Brian - I'm not certain of the dates for the Newfoundland con but I will post the dates as soon as I know. No firm plans for the U.S. at this point.
* Ubertoaster notes sanity and Lexx don't necessarily go hand in hand...
Goblin> and as for sanity and Lexxians...
funket> Hey Mantz!
mantra> hey :)
dreams_of_kai> Brian, were any of your plans disrupted because of your accident?
iStan/Brian - The plan to eat solid foods was definitely disrupted, and some travel plans. But nothing major.
scifisuzi> Thanks to istan for Brian's great website http//www.briandowney.biz/ (I visit it often) and thanks for everyone involved in setting up this chat! You guys rock!
funket> SO did you often improvise (sorry if this question was asked before)?
iStan/Brian - We improvised only when it made sense because of physical circumstances on set or because the scene needed a cap. Or wqhen in the speaking of the written word it made sense to make the flow more natural.
funket> We're all happily dyslexxic.
dreams_of_kai> But doesn't the insnity of lexx help save our sanity?
* Ubertoaster concurs
Goblin> define sanity
funket> Sanity is an irrational reaction to the world we live in.
bigdaddy> can anybody post the chatlogg ?
vixen> it'll be on the bored
flipper> you sure looked hot in ya white suit brian
iStan/Brian - It was about 3degrees celsius. Who wouldn't be hot?
flipper> hehe I mean't hot as in sexy
Ramses> Brian, will there be a Lexx spinoff or Lexx movie? A final answer, please, as we have heard much and have been directed to post this question to you. D
iStan/Brian - Unlikely in this universe, however...
Ramses> mkay, thanks.
Mmlover - Hey flipper ;)
iStan/Brian - Any more questions?
Cesare> Stan, oh Stan, yep, he's the man, the brave and famous captain Stan, he's got Lexx, but has no sex, oh poor poor captain Stanley. Happy hour oh happy hour when Brian joined us on the chat, happy hour oh happy hour, this hour is ooooh sooo haaaappyyyy... Sing it to him, istan...;-)
dreams_of_kai> Whatever happened to the graphic novel?
