Re: teacake does Stargate: punch it

As I understand it, when originally cast no one informed Jessica Steen that the role was going to be a regular. At the time, Lost City was believed to be SG-1's final episode. When she learned the character was meant to be a regular on Atlantis, she was unable/unwilling to commit to a series and so the role of Dr. Weir was recast.

To be honest, I'm so used to Torri Higginson as Dr. Weir that I find it jarring to see someone else in the role whenever I re-watch Lost City.
