Stargate Universe actor Lou Diamond Phillips has revealed that he is pleased to be able to work in both films and television.
Phillips has previously appeared in a number of high-profile movies, including the 1988 Western Young Guns opposite Kiefer Sutherland and Charlie Sheen.
He told SFX: “A lot of the guys that I started with, whether it’s Kiefer or Charlie Sheen… have made the transition to television, and they’re doing quite well.
“Some of my favourite work over the last few years, whether it was in the first season of 24 or on Numbers or on Stargate Universe… has been very satisfying to me because the writing has got so much better in television. A number of actors these days have the ability to go back and forth, so I feel fortunate about that.”
Phillips’s Stargate Universe co-star Robert Carlyle also recently revealed that he enjoys working in television and does not see it as a “step back”.
