Famed for his long-running role as Teal’c on much-loved sci-fi show Stargate SG-1, latest MCM Manchester special guest Christopher Judge has also been making gaming headlines recently as the new voice of Kratos in critically-acclaimed 2018 actioner God of War.
First introduced in Stargate SG-1’s pilot ‘Children of the Gods’, Christopher Judge’s deadpan warrior Teal’c appears in all episodes of SG-1 except Season 8’s ‘Prometheus Unbound’, making him the character with the most appearances in the entire series. As well as starring in 211 episodes of SG-1, the Los Angeles-born actor also wrote four episodes of the show and cameoed in spin-off series Stargate: Atlantis.
Physically the strongest member of the SG1 team, Teal’c is a Jaffa – a human genetically engineered to be a super-soldier by the alien Goa’uld. His prominent gold forehead tattoo marks him out as the former First Prime of Goa’uld system lord Apophis, whom he served until his defection to the SG1 first contact force in the opening episode of the TV series.
Meanwhile, the new God of War game sees Judge star as a mighty warrior of a different stripe, taking over the role of main protagonist Kratos from Terrence C. Carson. The eighth instalment in the God of War series, this latest title is a major reimagining of the franchise – not only has the setting moved from ancient Greek legend to Viking mythology, but Kratos has swapped his signature double-chain blades for the ice magic-infused Leviathan Axe and is now accompanied on his adventures by his son, Atreus.
Attending all weekend of MCM Manchester, Christopher Judge joins a guest list that already includes two fellow God of War cast members – Troy Baker (Magni) and Nolan North (Modi).
