Q Why did Richard Dean Anderson leave Stargate SG-1?
—Karli Walker, Taft, Calif.

The popular Sci-Fi network series was filmed in Vancouver, British Columbia, and Los Angeles resident Anderson, 57, didn't like working so far from home. He left the show to spend more time with his 8-year-old daughter, Wylie Quinn Annarose. Anderson returned for a couple of guest appearances for the final season, the second half of which began airing in April.
