Corin Nemec interview
Date of publishing: 28th September 2005

Corin Nemec interview - Jonas Quinn Stargate SG-1 As a young boy, Joseph Nemec IV was known as Corin by everyone who loved him. As a baby, his grandmother used to say that he was a 'real corker', this turned into Corky. From that time, everyone called him Corky. From Corky sprung Corin, the name we all know him as. Corin Nemec began acting at the age of 12. His first TV show was back in 1986 on an episode of Sidekicks, but we all know Corin Nemec as Parker Lewis from the TV show "Parker Lewis can't loose" and of course as our favorite Kelownan from Stargate SG-1: Jonas Quinn!

Gilles Nuytens: Hello Mr. Nemec, glad you agreed to make this interview. Could you first say some words to your fans and especially your Stargate fans ?
Corin Nemec: My message to anyone interested is: never let life impede on your ability to manifest your dreams, and should it impede, or attempt to impede, dig deeper into your dreams and deeper into yourself and believe that much harder that anything is possible, and make it happens.

Gilles Nuytens: At the present time, what are the things that motivates you in life ?
Corin Nemec: At the present time, what motivates me in life is unmanifested destiny and the absolute need and nececity to create my life to be what I have always imagined it to be. I have found out here in Hollywood that talent does not always prevail and that belief in one's self is the greatest belief that exist, for no one will ever believe in you as much as you believe in yourself.

Corin Nemec interview - Jonas Quinn Stargate SG-1Gilles Nuytens: You played in season 6 of Stargate SG-1, how was it on the sets ? Some rumours said that there were sometimes misunderstandings between you and some people of the staff, is it true ?
Corin Nemec: I had a great time filming season six with everyone. I don't presently know of any misunderstandings that occured between me and anyone on that project, but if you know something I don't, I would certainly be interested in finding out what it is. They have a wonderful team up there in vancouver and have created a great work environment for everyone from the stars of the show to the production assistants.

Gilles Nuytens: From your year on Stargate, which are the best moments you keep in mind ?
Corin Nemec: The best moments I keep in mind from working on stargate is the whole of the work experience. The consistency, the work environment, the people, and location. Vancouver is a fantastic place to work and live!

Gilles Nuytens: We haven't seen you in the show since episode "Fallout", would you like that the writers make you come back for some episodes ? For exemple, why don't you propose a story with Jonas facing the invasion of the Ori/Priors on Kelowna ? It would be a good occasion for a come back of Jonas!
Corin Nemec: Yes, I would love to come back to SG1. Even for one episode. I have thought about possible storylines, but at present have not approached anyone up there about them. Perhaps I will have to do that soon!

Gilles Nuytens:
Some years after, how do you see Jonas, how would you describe him, his psychology, and which part of you did you gave to him ?
Corin Nemec: Realistically I have not thought too much about the psychology or life of the character jonas in some time, but by what has been written, I would imagine that he would be doing quite well in Kelowna. Perhaps a world leader.

Gilles Nuytens: Same question about Parker Lewis ?
Corin Nemec: Parker Lewis is most likely running a multinational corporation right now.

Gilles Nuytens: Could you describe us a typical day of a television's actor from morning to evening and the one of a cinema actor if any differences ?
Corin Nemec: There's probably not much of a difference between the daily life of a film actor and cinema actor, unless you are working on a multi-camera sit-com, and I will say, there is also infinite variations in their daily lives. We are all artists and all have our own unique perspective on life, so it would be far to general a statement to try and describe the daily life of an actor in Hollywood, but I am quite certain that cappucinos have something to do with it.

Corin Nemec interview - Jonas Quinn Stargate SG-1Gilles Nuytens: Your best memory on Parker Lewis, a strong moment unforgettable ?
Corin Nemec: My best memory of Parker Lewis was... well, there are a few I suppose, but one would be the time one of our directors was stopped for drinking and driving on a sunday night before work and could not get to set the next day in the morning due to incarceration. We had done an episode the week before where my father was thrown in jail for protesting or something, and the sets were still standing. So... we had them take down the set and re-build in the area the director usually worked from and once he finally got to set he had to direct from jail for the rest of the day.

Gilles Nuytens: You certainly have many funny inside stories/anecdotes to tell us about Stargate, do you have one in mind ?
Corin Nemec: Not really any anecdotes that come to mind right off hand. Filming a drama is somewhat different, you know? Though we did have a great time, I don't recall any moments that even come close to the "directing from jail" moment of Parker Lewis.

Gilles Nuytens: What is your favourite episode in Stargate and in Parker Lewis and why ?
Corin Nemec: My favorite episode of stargate???? All of them! My favorite episode of parker lewis???? All of them!

Gilles Nuytens: When you are acting, what drill you to show the emotions to your character ?
Corin Nemec: Every role varies greatly, just as emotions vary greatly. All emotions exist within every character, you see, but it is the situation which prescibes what emotion may prevail for that moment. I would say that it is not specifically emotions that Ii focus on when creating a character, but the psychological nature of certainty. All the characters are certain that they are experiencing FOR REAL whatever is happening in the scripted pages.

Gilles Nuytens: You come from an artistic family, where arts have a big place. You are artist yourself, what do you like and motivates you in art ?
Corin Nemec: What motivates me in art is the ugly and beautiful nature of the truth. It has to be truthful and honest, even if it is ugly and grotesque. Art is about expressing the true nature of the human spirit within in whatever way one wishes to express it. If it is honest, it is beautiful, if it is not honest, it is obvious.

Gilles Nuytens: What did you felt when they announced you that Michael Shanks would take back his role in Stargate ?
Corin Nemec: When they announced that Michael was coming back to the show, I honestly felt let-down. It was shocking and jarring to the system. I understand the reason, but I felt saddened by the result.

Gilles Nuytens: Thank you so much for answering these questions! You are coming to Belgium in October, I hope you'll like my country. And for sure I'll come say hello to you!
Corin Nemec: Yes, I will be in Belgium in October and I have heard wonderful things about it, and I look forward to coming there and meeting you and seeing your country.
Thank you for your kind questions and when we do meet, please feel free to set up a moment when we can talk in person for further Q & A.

Check out the FACTS convention website to meet Corin on the 15th and 16th October in Belgium: http://www.facts-convention.com
