Return to the Gate
November 4-5, 2017

Richard returned to Australia to attend the Return to the Gate event, celebrating the 20th anniversary of Stargate SG-1. The convention, held over two days in two cities, took place in Sydney on November 4th and in Melbourne on November 5th.

Richard reunited with Amanda Tapping, Michael Shanks, Corin Nemec, and Gary Jones for the event, where he greeted fans, signed autographs, posed for pictures, and participated in Q&A panels and auctions.

To help share the events of the weekend, Richard sent a series of selfies, photos, captions, and notes.

Below are Richard's photos and notes from Australia.

Before the Convention

Richard arrived in Sydney, Australia on Wednesday, where he was reunited with Amanda Tapping, and the two of them took advantage of the opportunity to catch up with each other and to tour the city. Afterward, Richard shared a somewhat stylized selfie with his former co-star and added a note:

Plus: SO hot!!

Great to be back in Australia!

Amanda also shared some of her photos with Richard.
