Gilles Nuytens. Gilles Nuytens TSW. Gilles Nuytens: What do you do in your free time? Rachel Luttrell: Oh my goodness. Gilles Nuytens: What kind of movies? Rachel Luttrell: Pretty much any kind.

You know, there are many things that I would have liked to do with Teyla. I like the direction that she went, certainly, but I still think that there was room to do a lot more in terms of exploring her culture and the fact that she was native to the Pegasus galaxy. I think that there could have been, potentially, a lot more mythology and history woven in there. So do you feel that the show ended prematurely? On the one hand, yes.
