Don S. Davis PhD played the character of Major General George S. Hammond on Stargate SG-1, guest starring on Stargate: Atlantis and Stargate: Continuum. He was an army Captain stationed in Korea. He was a stuntman, painter, and sculptor. He had a PhD in "dramatic theory and criticism".
Long term health issues forced him to leave the SG-1's regular cast at the end of the Season 7. However he remained available to reprise his role as General Hammond, sometimes in place of another character. These include both parts of "The Fourth Horseman" and "The Road Not Taken" when then-Air Force Chief of Staff General John Jumper and William Devane respectively were unavailable and the scripts were rewritten to include General Hammond.
Message from his Family after his deathEdit
Dear Fans and Friends of Don S. Davis,
So many of you have been touched by not only the work and art of Don S. Davis, but by the man himself, who always took the time to be with you at the appearances he loved, that it is with a tremendous sense of loss I must share with you that Don passed away from a massive heart attack on Sunday morning, June 29.
On behalf of his family and wife, Ruby, we thank you for your prayers and condolences. A family memorial where Don's ashes will be scattered in the ocean will take place in a few weeks, and should you wish to, please make a donation to the American Heart Association in Don's memory.
